    Wrangler Repro Appreciate Thread

    The ones I had were late 80's early 90's(I guess) Made in the USA ones, they really were very stubborn but at the same time very hard wearing, it was difficult to put any kind of dent in them. I think some of it has to do withe the unique weave that Wrangler use, it's almost like the way Left Hand Twill wears/fades in it's own way.

    Great find there @Spiraltoy, if they're anything like the "real" Wranglers, they will be impossible to fade, so good luck with that.

    1966 501's... in 1966

    Yes, I got lucky many times on ebay and one of the best was two pairs if early '80's 505s, both have chain stitched hems and Talon 42 zippers, they're superb jeans with a really nice slim-ish cut with a lovely gentle taper, they're really nice jeans.

    They'll stretch a lot easier without any starch in them and if you're worried about size differences in cm's, they might be just a bit too small for you. Judging by the photo's they still look quite "raw".

    If they're that uncomfortable there is probably still a lot of starch in them so, if it was me, I would give the a gentle run through the washing machine with a bit of mild detergent.

    I presume you are referring to the "653" coin pockets there and the only reason I would disagree with that is when you see them up close there does actually seem to be method to the madness, the other reason would be the pair in the center and the pair on the right are not only from the same year ('83), factory ("653"), they are also from the same month, if you can believe it.To me it definitely looks like they just had a different pattern for coin pockets at that particular time. Edit as I found a better example of coin pocket madness from juke_kakui's instagram page, it really is a wonderful resource. These are a WW 2 pair, S501XX... I presume the same pair from the inside...

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    The only problem with that theory is the L.V.C. did not exist when that particular pair were made, in roughly 1980 ->1982. Also, I have never seen any L.V.C. pairs with a selvedge belt loop, it's just not something that any pair of jeans from any era actually needs. It's even more unnecessary then selvedge in the coin pockets. The main reason for the posts was to show that in the various factories weird shit happened from time to time and there was really no rhyme or reason to any of it. On juke_kakui's instagram page he has many great examples of this kinda stuff including this on a pair of 517's...

    1966 501's... in 1966

    I couldn't agree more, some of my favorite pairs are early and mid 80's non-selvedge 501's and I think only those that already know them and own them appreciate them. I for one am a convert.

    Denime

    I am really getting into the pocket fades on all forms of denim, jeans, shirts, jackets, the way the extra material is folded on the inside can give some really interesting patterns, e.g. the left side of both of the back pockets here.

    True that yo... I can't stand the "massive holes in my jeans look".

    Lovely stuff there @pomata, I take it they're a 50's cut?

    They actually made the news, if you can call the Daily Fail "news", there was actually better stuff on Twitter regarding these monstrosities... Fans horrified as Zinedine Zidane wears 'criminal' trousers at unveiling of his return to Real Madrid
