    Given the pic was taken before April 1971, I would think it more likely that Joe was wearing 501ZXXs or 502XXs rather than 505s. Certainly it was these which were sold in England at that time. They were mainly sold shrink to fit whereas the 505s were pre-shrunk. To me at the time the numbers were an immemerable jumble of numerals Zs and Xs so the jeans being sold in England were probably 501ZXXs, (which Joe's jeans look like) all with Scovill or Talon zippers. I never saw button flies being sold in the shops in England. However it sounds if you may have more definitive info in which case are you able to share it?

    Thanks. I'm not going to start dry cleaning. Fortunately I have a good stock of other vintages.

    Thank you. What does appear clear is that the longest leg length is L34 and that L36 has been abandoned. This must limit the number of potential customers. I have never had less than L36 in Levis stf since 1969 so L34 won't fit me. I have also bought L38 out of choice when available (both pre and during the life of LVC). My current 1937s V2 are L36 and after shrinkage I wouldn't want them any shorter. I may have long legs but at 5ft 10 inches I am hardly a freak! Perhaps I am missing something: is an L34 really an L36?

    The 1984 vintage are now on sale. Selvedge or no selvedge - it doesn't say.

    I had to wash my 1937 201s after 3 months continuous wear. They have come out nicely washed inside out at 40C for 1hour in the machine.

    501ZXXs bought in June 1971 (big E). The rear side pocket seams on these were parallel rather than splayed at the top.

    501ZXXs in 1970 bought in 1969 - pity black and white pic.

    Mostly LVC but with a fair smattering of Fullcount, Ironheart, non-LVC Levis and miscellaneous added to the mix of jeans for wearing.

    3 months' continuous wear - to wash or not to wash?

    Still can't stop wearing or bring myself to wash my 555 201 1937s! Whiskers are breaking out everywhere. The colour remains very dark so the first pic is more representative in this respect

    This is the pair of 1937 201XXs which I have been breaking in mostly continuous wear since April 2020. No soaks and no washes.

    As I have neither cut in LVC I can't say. Funnily enough, a pair which I had from 1971 were more generously cut than a pair from 1969.

    The more cynical might say that they made too many L32 1976s, got muddled up with the tabs and had to think of a way of getting rid of them. I think the tabs on my S1 2006 Taylor Togs pairs above were a mistake. They were on the shelf in American Classics and I bought 2 pairs of each tab all at the same time. They are well put together and the seams are tightly sewn with lots of wrinkling. I have worn a pair with a little e tab into the ground.
