    The UK site has different pics: https://www.levi.com/GB/en_GB/promo/levis-vintage-clothing-1937-501-jeans/p/375010015

    Or lack of interest in a fickle market.

    @Paul T has been quiet while all this speculation about the reason for Levis' 40% discount on much of their UK LVC lines has been going on....Perhaps all but a few select vintages are going to be abandoned? The promotion finishes on 26 January.

    The hem on the Japanese denim pair is 8 inches compared with 8 1/4 inches on the Cone pair. The knee measurement (using the Ironheart yardstick, 13 inches down the inseam) is the same at 9 inches.

    1966s compared: Japanese denim on the left, Cone on the right.

    The 1937 Japanese denim version 2s are big shrinkers! These 2 pics compare a raw pair against a 3 month old pair washed a few times, both W34 L36.

    On second thoughts perhaps they are clearing stock to replace it with more authentic reproductions.

    Here are some comparisons between a pair of Cone 1933s W31 L36 in the background bought in late summer 2018 and 2 pairs of version 2 1937s W32 L36 and W34 L36 in the foreground, bought in October 2019. The 1937s have cinch, crotch rivet and hidden back rivets and a high 3 button fly. The leg is not slim but I generally buy small waists so the legs are not too full on me. The arcuate didn't get diamonds until post World War 2.

    I am loving the denim of my Version 2 1937s - much better deeper colour than the last Cone version of the 1933s that I got last year. I am very confused by the "Rigid - Black" description being given to mostly all the rigid LVCs currently on Levis website both in the UK and in Germany, despite them being shown as Indigo in the pictures and corresponding with Indigo in the Lot numbers shown under details. It is difficult to believe that this is correct particularly as the undiscounted 1947s, 1954s and 1955s are also shown as Rigid Black" - unless the whole collection got dyed black by mistake. It looks as if 1890s, 1937s, 1944s, 1966s, 1967s and 1976's will not be featured next season, judging by the 40% discount now being applied, and that Type I and Type 2 jackets may also be endangered.

    Would that apply to the 1937 Valencia Street 201XXs and 1920 201XXs or are they a work of LVC fiction?

    Aeroleather say the Cone 1933s were 12 oz after wash: http://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/product-detail.php?id=137 But don't give the weight of the 1937s: http://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/product-detail.php?id=139

    Cultizm say that the V2 1937s are 10.8 oz and the V2 1966s are 12oz. My V2 1937s and 1966s seem to be the same weight so I question whether Cutlizm are right, though their information is very precise. The Cone 1933s used to be 11oz but there don't seem to be V2 1933s around at present.

    I'm sorry, I've no idea. I can see them via the links.

    Selvedge 501s bought in June 1979. Number 6 on the button. I love the colour of these but hadn't noticed they needed a wash. I can just about squeeze into them.

    This is the pocket shape of my 1969 pair - note how far apart the seams are at the sides and along the bottom and the thick 'sewed with the finest thread'. https://pin.it/boholjop47tayx
