    @ameritech Mr Randal did quite a bit of posting about this over at denimbro http://www.denimbro.com/levis-vintage-clothing-japan-lvcj_topic4302.html

    @Dr_Heech that’s some good info there Doc. I sure would like an explanation why the denim recipe changed over the years. My early pairs of 47s (2006-2007) are noticeably different than any of my later 47 cones.

    Kinda hard to say by pictures alone. Most of us go by measurements. Start doing your homework, grab a paper tape measure those jeans and start comparing various models in your size. My advice is once you get it narrowed down to a particular model, jump on eBay, and start looking for listings that someone bought raw and have given up on. Essentially reverse engineering finding your size and model. This helps mitigate the pain of buying your first raw pair, shrinking them down only to find out X doesn’t work for you. GL.

    @beautiful_FrEaK here are my two other pairs from the same years span of each other. @unders I’ve read that blogpost before and have been hoping paulT would chime in. I go back and forth on fakes or not. The problem I have with the fake theory is that every other detail is spot on. Why would you go through the hassle of getting EVERY other detail correct and then let that blue line slide. I’ve owned the offending pair, not since raw but maybe a cold soak. They’ve shrank to the exact same dimensions as the other two. Not only that but the way the waist band shrinks, stretches back out and hangs is the same (which is different than all my post 2007 Levis).

    Maynard - I own two other pairs bookending these. One from fall of 06, one fall of 07. Every other detail is identical. Including the denim recipe. at first I thought they were fakes, but there’s nothing to indicate they’re anything (minus the blue line) but genuine. Then my thoughts turned towards samples, but again I’ve come across LVC samples they’re stamped as such. a total mystery to me.

    I’ve posted this already over at denimbro, but hoping some of the resident LVC historians can weigh in on these: Factory codes date these March 2007. Everything about them are like my other early pairs of LVC 47’s, I can not find any errors or irregularities other than the selvedge line. Discuss:
