    Paul, I had a pair from June 1971 when the side stitching of the pocket was parallel as per your pic. Before then even with bar-tacked versions it widened before the top. I have the pocket from a 1969 paid but can't upload the pic. The shape is like the 1955s but barely any v shape along the bottom.

    I think these are Cone: https://www.levi.com/GB/en_GB/clothing/men/jeans/levis-vintage-clothing-1937-501-jeans/p/375010010 And these are made in Bulgaria: https://www.levi.com/GB/en_GB/clothing/men/jeans/levis-vintage-clothing-1937-501-jeans/p/375010015 The key is in the last 2 numbers (10) and (15).

    Just had 2 pairs of rigid Cone Mills made in the USA raw 1966s size W32 L36 delivered expecting that I would get V2. I had 2 pairs of 1937 V2s delivered yesterday and the 1966s are a more generous fit in that size to the 1966s. I love the Cone Mills denim which seems similar to the 1947s I bought about 5 years ago. Having said that, I love the new ?Kaihara denim of the 1937s and they have been expertly put together in Bulgaria. The price rises don't seem to affected the UK LS website, unlike Cultish. I can't upload pics - there was a problem processing the uploaded file. -200. Anybody know why?

    Yes, but I never understood where they got those curiously positioned arcs from. Here is the left rear pocket of some rigid STF zipper Levis, presumably 502s bought new in September 1969.

    My experience with 1937s has been chequered. I got 2 or 3 pairs of original 555 201s and 1 had a snag. PARTIAL SUCCESS. In about 2012 I picked up 5 more pairs of these which are nice. SUCCESS. At 1 stage you could only get them (now labelled 501s with the different buckle) in the South West Soil finish but not raw. FAILURE. I did get a few pairs of South West Soil which I liked. SUCCESS. When you could get them raw, in early 2000s, the fabric had flaws and would disintegrate. FAILURE - I got Denim Doctor to convert 1 pair into shorts. SUCCESS Whenever I looked, the last of the Cone denim never seemed to available in L36, so now I have some V2s made in Bulgaria which will be interesting! First impressions are good, but pic upload failed.

    Has anybody got a ONE-PIECE OF ROCK ORIGINAL DENIM CAP -SHINER- 13.5oz INDIGO DENIM? The info on sizing seems very variable and it seems that some are being sold raw and some once-washed so presumably the raw ones will shrink and the once-washed will stretch! It is WW2 S series denim but I couldn't see any S series denim on the website. Anybody got any evo pics of caps or S series denim?

    Mine don't have kanji on the front. FC online shop has now restocked raw 1101XX EXs . Mine are already showing some light blue after only a few days of wear.

    Has anybody got any sizing tips on the raw 1952 stretch model? I would like to get some before the arcs go but don't know whether you buy actual size thighs and a bigger waist or whether you can allow for the thigh stretching and if so, by how much?

    A great shame indeed. I have never bought any jeans which don't have arcs and am unlikely to buy any of the new models. Luckily a couple of pairs of Black Friday 1101XXs are currently on the way from Merv so I will have 4 BNWT pairs of 1101XXs in stock and 1 pair of 1108XXs. I also have 2 pairs of 1101XXs which remain unwashed and which I wear from time to time. Also I have 2 new pairs of the 1101XX EZs. My stocks should last me for a good while.

    Son of a Stag says: FULL COUNT FULL COUNT 1101XXEXW 15.5OZ JEAN £349 Made to Celebrate Full Count's 25th Anniversary. Every 6th yarn is uneaven, giving the jeans an unusually slubby feel for Full Count. Red Selvage instead of the usual Pink. Made to replicate their jeans prior to the adoption of Zimbabwean Cotton in 1994. Deerskin Leather patch with with different illustration. Cinch back. Full Count's classic 1101 fit. 15.5oz Japanese Denim Exposed rivets on the back pocket. Period accurate arcuate. Raw. We suggest dropping down a size from your usual. https://www.sonofastag.com/collections/full-count/products/full-count-1101xxexw-15-5oz-jean But they are wrong about saying the denim is 15.5 oz as it is 15 oz.

    This is what Fullcount Denim blog said about the 1101XX EXs in October 2017. I'm not sure what zara is but assume Serubitchi means selvedge. Anniversary. October 5, 2017 The Tokyo store where the arrival is continued. We introduced 25th anniversary items as well. 1101XXEX 1101XX_25TH_REVIVAL ¥ 26,784 This is the first full denim original reprint of 1101XX. As it is the design, it is an anniversary item which adopted technology which could not be done at that time, such as strengthening the feeling of zara from the time at the fabric . The patch used Deer Skin which reprinted the design at the time. Pleasurable needle stick buckle on buckle back. The hip pocket design also reproduces the stitch of the time. Bare rivets are also good feeling. The color of Serubitchi is red, you can see the strength of the zara feeling when you up the fabric.
