    No inside tags in those days @vIGGiou riou. There is a stamp on 1 of the pockets.

    £1,300. Would have liked a 36 inch leg but they don't come up often like this. The inside bit of 1 of the rivets is missing but the outside bit is there. Thinking about taking a silver inside bit from another pair and gluing it on.

    Some nice detail on these Big Es that I picked up. Not worn very much at all - very slight wear on the seam between the thighs and slight evidence of cuffing.

    The chunkiness of the zip pull (on my Superdry Travis skinny stretch jeans) so reminds me of the Scovill zip pull on my first pair of Levis.

    I got my 1975s in February or March 2018. They are 16 on the button. Curiously they have selvedge on the coin pocket. There is a lot of twist. There are characteristic flaws in the denim - see right rear pocket. Sadly I can no longer access EBay purchase history from 2018 so have no pics deadstock with flashers etc (I could dig out the flashers if anyone is interested).

    Yes, they fit fine W32 L36. They were BNWT but I wore them for a while and still wear them sometimes when the mood takes me. I will get them out in the next day or so. I have posted pics of them on here: Levi's Vintage Clothing - Page 728 - superdenim - superfuture – supertalk . The patch started to come apart so I sewed it.

    I never have any problem with shrinkage. If they fit me raw, they fit after being washed having first been worn for a couple of months. Always machine washed, but always cool: cold or 30C (40C max) unless I want to shrink them. Interesting about the collector buying deadstock - when I die, I fear that my heirs will give my 188 item collection of BNWTs LVC jeans plus a few Type 1, 2 and 3s, some arced Fullcount jeans and Type 1 and 2 jackets, and my Ironhearts away to charity and will not cash in on their value. Also I have a few 1990s BNWT 501s Made in the USA and a large number of Levis and a few others which have been washed and worn, some faded but none ripped or torn. Who/where are the collectors? Do they buy off Ebay or is there a specialist forum? ...........having said all that, I did pay £700 for a pair of 555 1955s within the last year and £1,300 for a deadstock 1975 pair of 501s a few years ago.

    Thanks for the info and intro to Denimbro @Dr_Heech prefer the canvassy ones. Is there any difference in the fading characteristics?

    Hairy v Canvassy The top pair from September 1998 are hairy while the bottom pair from from August 1998 are more canvassy. Does anyone know the reason for this?

    I like the denim (from 1998), the quality of the finished product, the colour and the details. These are a once washed pair.

    These are the best in my opinion.

    In my opinion, the 1937 501XXc made in 1998 are the best! They are currently available deadstock all 36 length in waist sizes 31, 32 and 33* (* only a few left). https://item.rakuten.co.jp/codet-r/levis-37201-0003/

    @Rehnen1 Sorry for the late reply. If they are tight at the waist I just wear them for a couple of months before washing. If they are tight after washing I just pull them in and out (like you are clapping your hands) to loosen them up. As long as there is plenty of length for length shrinkage and enough room in the thigh to pinch the denim between your fingers and thumb, they will be fine. You have more than enough room in the thigh (more than I would have) so they might not shrink enough for you and then end up too loose. As long as you can do up the waist and fly buttons when they are raw (even if it is a struggle), they won't be too tight. Ultimately fit is personal choice.

    I always buy mine tight at the waist and let it stretch out. On the 1947s you need to check that the thighs are not too tight.

    What conclusion did you reach @andyrcii ?

    I agree totally about the Scovill Zipper. It was what I had on my first pair of 501ZXXs or 502ZXXs.

    Here are some pics of my February 2000 822 1873s after 2 months of wear - no soaks, no washes. They are certainly showing potential for crease fades. Length 36 in waist sizes 31, 32 and 34 are still available deadstock for around £300 at: https://item.rakuten.co.jp/codet-r/levis-125-0024/

    Interesting that this pair of made in February 2000 822 Washington State All Seasons Sewing Factory 1873 First 125 0024s should have the price tag of 25,000 yen printed on the label. Over 21 years later they are selling for 44,000 yen.

    The red tabs are now bigger and less rigid than on earlier models. Top row: 1996, 1996 and 2000; bottom row: 2018, 2019 and 501XXc's from 1998.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Good point. They were made in November 1998 and my experience is that the red tab on the older models doesn't curl up as much as it is does on the newer models. I will look to add pics to demonstrate this.

    I would love to get my LVC to fade like these - is it something about the Japanese water? ヤフオク! - 米国製 リーバイス 30s復刻 37201-0003 501XXc ... (yahoo.co.jp)

    If anyone is interested in any Made in the USA 1873 First February 2000 deadstock 822 on the button these are currently available at £222 in the sale (sizes 31 and 32 only). They are sold as having been made at Washington State All Seasons Sewing Factory. Size 32 is in short supply. https://item.rakuten.co.jp/birigo/levis-125-0024/ They are very well made (see raw pics) and do not have the same problem as my other pair of 822s where the left pocket lining stuck out (see washed pics).

    My 501XXc's after 2 months wear, no washes, no soaks. A few baby fades emerging now but promise of whiskers and more to come.

    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.
