    Thank you @Maynard Friedman . They look good in those pics.

    The first pic is what I would call high contrast (in Levis), faded in a way that I like and the second pic (which are 503BXX but not 503BSXX) are fading in a way that I don't like. Having said that the 3rd pic is also of the same pair of 503BXXs and shows a nice rich colour.

    @Maynard Friedman Do you still have a any pics of the 503BSXXs please? I am interested to see how they fade - my impression is that that they are low contrast and don't fade or whisker much, becoming grey overall with no electric blue at wear points to start off with, just like as if the colour has bled (presumably because of the natural indigo). Unless the pairs in the other pics I have seen have not been treated properly, in which case is a secret to keeping the natural indigo colour rich and crisp with high contrast fades later on?

    No inside tags in those days @vIGGiou riou. There is a stamp on 1 of the pockets.

    £1,300. Would have liked a 36 inch leg but they don't come up often like this. The inside bit of 1 of the rivets is missing but the outside bit is there. Thinking about taking a silver inside bit from another pair and gluing it on.

    Some nice detail on these Big Es that I picked up. Not worn very much at all - very slight wear on the seam between the thighs and slight evidence of cuffing.

    The chunkiness of the zip pull (on my Superdry Travis skinny stretch jeans) so reminds me of the Scovill zip pull on my first pair of Levis.

    I got my 1975s in February or March 2018. They are 16 on the button. Curiously they have selvedge on the coin pocket. There is a lot of twist. There are characteristic flaws in the denim - see right rear pocket. Sadly I can no longer access EBay purchase history from 2018 so have no pics deadstock with flashers etc (I could dig out the flashers if anyone is interested).

    Yes, they fit fine W32 L36. They were BNWT but I wore them for a while and still wear them sometimes when the mood takes me. I will get them out in the next day or so. I have posted pics of them on here: Levi's Vintage Clothing - Page 728 - superdenim - superfuture – supertalk . The patch started to come apart so I sewed it.

    I never have any problem with shrinkage. If they fit me raw, they fit after being washed having first been worn for a couple of months. Always machine washed, but always cool: cold or 30C (40C max) unless I want to shrink them. Interesting about the collector buying deadstock - when I die, I fear that my heirs will give my 188 item collection of BNWTs LVC jeans plus a few Type 1, 2 and 3s, some arced Fullcount jeans and Type 1 and 2 jackets, and my Ironhearts away to charity and will not cash in on their value. Also I have a few 1990s BNWT 501s Made in the USA and a large number of Levis and a few others which have been washed and worn, some faded but none ripped or torn. Who/where are the collectors? Do they buy off Ebay or is there a specialist forum? ...........having said all that, I did pay £700 for a pair of 555 1955s within the last year and £1,300 for a deadstock 1975 pair of 501s a few years ago.

    Thanks for the info and intro to Denimbro @Dr_Heech prefer the canvassy ones. Is there any difference in the fading characteristics?

    Hairy v Canvassy The top pair from September 1998 are hairy while the bottom pair from from August 1998 are more canvassy. Does anyone know the reason for this?

    I like the denim (from 1998), the quality of the finished product, the colour and the details. These are a once washed pair.

    These are the best in my opinion.

    In my opinion, the 1937 501XXc made in 1998 are the best! They are currently available deadstock all 36 length in waist sizes 31, 32 and 33* (* only a few left). https://item.rakuten.co.jp/codet-r/levis-37201-0003/
