    A bit of character starting to show through on my 1937 501XXc s after just over 7 weeks' wear. No washes, no soaks, just plain raw September 1998 Valencia Street jeans.

    I think I may have the answer: If Washington State All Seasons Factory is an autotranslate for Four Seasons Sewing LLC, that was a Washington Wa Limited-Liability Company which filed on December 19, 2012. The company's filing status is listed as Administratively Dissolved and its File Number is 603261637. So, @Maynard Friedman and @PaulT and anyone else who might know, it would appear that 822 was not a Levis factory, but a cut and sew factory like Taylor Togs, would it not? These are my only (rather large) 822s.

    Has anybody heard of the Washington State All Seasons Factory? I believe that may be factory 822. @Maynard Friedman @PaulT

    These from S1 2006 had a small e tab. They came from American Classics and they had them the same with small e, big E and plain R (registered trademark) tabs so I got 2 of each but wore the little es in first.

    These are my most faded Taylor Tog 643Ms

    The length of the seam between the waistband and the yoke, the denim and the shape of the rear pocket. What is on the button @crownzip ? I like them.

    @unders but those are the 1922 edition rather than the 1937s which in the late 1990s were made of the same (or similar, @PaulT will know) denim to the 1955s of the same era.

    Just came across Paul's guide Levi's 501 - a visual guide - superdenim - superfuture – supertalk - very informative and in need of updating. Sadly the 201 is outside the its scope.

    They look like Taylor Togs.

    Levi's 501 - a visual guide

    Obviously it is inappropriate to include those wonderful 201s in a 501 thread but I wondered if you had thought of updating this to include the the 1937 501XXc? I managed (by mistake) to grab myself 6 pairs of the 501XXc made in 1998 and am loving them. Fortunately, I got 4 of them were in the recent sale for under 30,000 yen. Had you thought of linking this whole thread it to the LVC board, Paul?

    Comparing my new 1937 501XXc s with my 1937 201XX s made 11 months apart at Valencia Street. The 501XXc 's inner label shows it as a 201. Some deadstock 501XXc s are still available but you can no longer get them for around £210 which you could a few weeks back in the sale at https://item.rakuten.co.jp/birigo/levis-37201-0003/

    Found that if your cinchback jeans, 201 for example are tight at the waist, they are more comfortable with the cinch tightened as it keeps the waistband above the waist. Thighs are not a problem with old cuts.

    Loving everything about my Valencia Street 551ZXXs - the fit, the denim and the colour. They almost look overdyed. Very little give so far. The waistband is snug but they are not too tight and there is no noticeable hip flare. The flasher must be one of the best.

    Ancient and modern! May 1998 Valencia Street 1937 201XXs and (if I understand the label correctly) May 2019 Bulgarian 1937 501XXs (which were clearly designed to Wrinkle, Shrink and Fade!).
