    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!).

    1937 501 XXc 555s. Has anyone got these? I presume the c stands for cinch. They look the same as 1937 201s except for the patch. The inner label defines them as 201s. I like the 1937 201s but always thought they should be 501s so were not as 'authentic'. The design of the cinch is not right but then it doesn't break so I can accept it. I have some size 32 201 555s, so I decided to go for some size 32 501XXc's at about £205 before duty etc only for them to be unavailable by the time the order was processed. As I have some 1955s in size 31 I thought I could squeeze into some size 31 501XXc's. In frustration over the purchase procedure I ended up putting in multiple orders from different sources but wasn't worried as I thought some would end up as unavailable. However, to my surprise all the orders have now been completed so I will now end up with 4 pairs! I had a job getting the waistband of size 32 201s done up today after a 40C wash so getting the waistband done up on the size 31s will be a struggle. I may break my luck of always being able to get into any jeans I have bought. I once took 30 mins to get some 25 oz Ironheart buttoned up. If I can't get into them, unless anybody can swap them for size 32s, I may have to put them up for sale when they arrive . The 1937s seem to have less give than 1955s probably because of the cinch. https://item.rakuten.co.jp/birigo/levis-37201-0003/

    Plenty of life left in these 1955s. They are all 555s except those on the top right which are 554s.

    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.
