    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    PayPal really, really annoys me in so many ways but every time i think of getting rid of it, I find some stupid reason to keep it, but it is really expensive to use and maybe if you're a retailer it's even more so. I'm surprised nobody has come up with something similar but better.

    A little bit more "653" button madness, similar to the nonsense I mentioned on page 687. I spotted this pair on ebay a while ago, they're sold now, but I couldn't help noticing the coin pocket, it's not a great picture but you can see that the pattern seems to follow the same lines as my early 1980's pairs, while these seem to be late 80's early 90's judging by the care tag and the patch... It has that rounded/curved line The plot thickens, at least for me...

    I also spotted this from @pomata from all the way back in 2008, nice to see someone around here with some brand loyalty, 10+ years and counting.

    I've been interested in Denime's version of the 505 for a while now and in the course of my "research" I came across these Shin's era beauties on Yahoo auctions, really great photo's...

    I'm in the same boat myself with some of my older and thankfully worn pairs but am still having difficulty getting rid of some of them, but as the old saying goes, if you love something, set it free.(They probably weren't talking about jeans when they came up with that phrase, but anyway...)

    And I'm sure it's been posted before but it's a classic...

    Even more definitive proof of the tailoring... Looks like the outseam was given some serious pressing as well.

    Vintage Denim?

    I'm guessing they were some kind of accident or else a custom order(???), something like that anyway, seems odd they would go from 501xx->501ZXX->551ZXX->505 and then stick another button fly model in there for good measure.

    Every time you say shit like that you make the Shiotani brothers cry. Do you want to make the Shiotani brothers cry? Do you??? #WarehouseTraitor!!!

    Great post @Flash, and one good bizarre Levi's post deserves another. I spotted these on Marvins a while back and forgot to post them, they must be some of the rarest jeans Levi's ever produced, the 551BXX, a button version(???) of the short lived 551ZXX, which is one of my favorite cuts... No offset rear belt loop like the 551ZXX... You can see the how great the old school thread colors were... 551BXX.

    I actually totally forgot to ask you about the post wash measurements, did you measure the waist and inseam afterwards?

    Great fit @Toegun, what size did they shrink down to?

    Yes, I was kinda being polite with the Boot Cut comparison, there were times when they felt like flares!!! Left hand twill seems to have it's own rules, I think because it's a lot smoother it doesn't seem to "degrade" in the same way, e.g. it's almost impossible to get left hand twill to have any kind of roping on the hems.

    I think if they were tapered it was an amazing job as it would look like they did it from the inseam rather than the outseam??? as the selvedge part looks like it hasn't been touched??? I'm guessing it's harder to do it from the inseam??? I think what's odd about the extra tag is it looks like it's duplicating the information that's usually on the rear of the "main" tag, which would seem a bit pointless as it's also in English, so you have the same information twice???, and it looks a good bit different and longer to the other "extra" tags I've seen. So in summing up, with fakes like that, who needs originals. And @Paul T, if you're up for a bit more "653" nonsense, I spotted a pair on ebay that were quite interesting regarding coin pockets.

    I've seen the extra tag on shirts from the "555" era and I think jackets too, but never on jeans. I thought they looked a bit "thin" as well but it could be the photo's or the fact that they are quite a "long" pair, I'd guess the shrunk to around 31"-32" waist and around a 37"-38" leg.

    Yea, mine did that as well only a little more on the extreme side, it was one of the things I didn't really like about them after a while, that and the fact that they really felt like I was wearing a pair of Boot Cut jeans. Glad I experienced them but I don't think I'd go for a pair again.

    They look legit alright, although the extra care tag is a bit disconcerting, maybe they did that for the export models??? Anyway all the details are the same as my "555" era 1955 cut, these ones seem to be from December 1998.

    May God have mercy on your jeans.

    Thanks for that. If that's the case then, they're basically not for me, I just couldn't make the SD-101 work for me at all.

    As they're a 36 I'd love to see the measurements, especially the front and back rise.

    Nice purchase @Toegun, I had a pair years ago and they're probably the only Samurai cut I'd go for again, they're super comfortable. P.S. enjoy the tiny pocket bags.
