    I too love the soft denim, patch, arcs and stitching (apart from the closeness of the stitching to the fly edge - I prefer it further away). I also love the large close together rear pockets. Not fussed about the offset rear belt loop and would prefer the loops at the side to be stitched to the seam and a wider coin pocket. Not sure if the black stitch bar tack at the bottom of the fly is right either. I got a pair of size 34s very early on from the flagship store. They had 2 pairs in my size. I bought 1 pair and decided to return a few minutes later to grab the 2nd pair but they had gone! Somebody must have been watching me! I kicked myself afterwards. They are comfy and fit OK even now I am slimmer, though might loosen up. I probably didn't wear them much as I had no spare pair to replace them if I wore them out.

    Does anybody know anything about the rigid Valencia Street 551BZXXs? https://shop-list.com/men/birigo/levis-0551z-0006/ As I understand it "B" denotes Boy ie the smaller sizes. Does that mean that if I can wear non B rigid 1967 505s in size 30 and 1955s in sizes 31 and 32, I will fit B 551ZXX in size 31 or are there other differences in the sizing of the B versions which might mean they would not fit? They look nice.

    I've got a range of sizes. Leg with shrink to fit can be no less than 36. Not into trading I'm afraid. I tend to go for pairs which take my fancy for whatever reason but not into wide fits at present. Raw I go for W32 which is a snug fit on me but 34 is the smallest I have in 1947s. I have W34, W36 and W38s (I have trimmed off a bit) with L36 or 38. I tamed a pair of W31 L38 1955s about 10 years ago - that was a struggle, and more recently a pair of W30 L34 1967 505s.

    I am not doing it for financial gain but they could be a useful nest egg if I can bear ever to part with any. I have bought at discounted prices in the past and have bought some in sales. On the other hand I paid a lot for a pair of deadstock 501s from 1975 (factory 16) in my size 2 or 3 years ago.

    I had to wash my 1967 505s after wearing them since November. They are looking good.

    I have some jeans actually bought in the 1970s and 1980s and some deadstock non-selvedge Made in the USA pairs from Interstate in the 1990s so the LVC versions didn't have the same appeal. Also I went through an Ironheart and Full Count phase. I also don't have any 1927 or 1915 LVCs.

    Have you noticed that this spate of 555 501s and 201s all appear to have a price sticker in the same place on the cardboard size tag? Presumably they are part of a job lot which became available in the UK/Europe recently. Anyone know whose price tag it is? From recollection the 1996 501s and 201s used to retail for £180. In March 2012 I scored a job lot of 555 201s from the USA. I heard that in the late 1980s or 1990s someone found a job lot of real vintage deadstock 501s. Can anybody tell the story of those?

    Here are some pics of a pair of 554 1947s from American Classics at a list price of £105 (before the discount they usually offered me).

    I was doing a raw 1947 stock take and came across the 554s along with a couple of 555s. There were also number of Rs. I have put some of my 1955s in order but forgot to look at the buttons on them. I will get the 1947s out again at some stage and photograph them. The 1955s were made of lots of different denim.
