So... I went with the 1951 model in the end and they arrived today... an efficient service from Mirror Ball and thanks to @Iron Horse @Flash for their above help...

Initially pleased with them - lovely denim, weight, colour and dimensions are as expected.

However the rear (ass) seems to have surplus denim causing puckering... I suspect this would be an ongoing feature and would annoy me.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone has had this with the 51? Did it go away with wear?

Also is this rear puckering a feature of the 43 model? 

Need to decide whether to keep / return / swap (I'm presuming Mirror Ball allow returns).

Thanks in advance!!

Thats just the freewheeler's silhouette

Most repro cuts are going to have some form of diaper butt. 

Some give diapers butt

some give wedgie butt

lee jeans have the pockets so far off to the side since they’re made for those who ride horse back and don’t want to sit on their wallet.

The ‘47 is the widest and has the darkest denim, the 43 is a touch slimmer and lighter-colored, the 51 is the slimmest with the lightest denim. 

The 43 is the WW2 model and doesn’t have the yellow enamel-coated buttons and has green HBT pocket bags.

Of the three, the 43 cut is my favorite. :)

Well, i guess i’ll go for either 43 or 51 , i’ll need to check their size chart first.

I’ve been thinking about the ‘43s for some time now, might grab a pair sometime in the future.

The 51 is more tapered than the 47 and 43.

Speedway has measurements:

The 43 is listed as having the same thigh and knee width, but FW blog claims it’s slimmer. My w33 43 definitely feels a bit slimmer than the w32 47s I had.

Yep, the 1939! Not in production anymore AFAIK but I think you could ask FW if they might have any left.

Speaking of FW, looking at maybe the camel Golden Spike trousers. :)

I was searching for a pair of the 1939 a couple years ago. I still would love a pair. I contacted a few shops, I think hoosier had one pair left not in my size. FW said they don't have any left and don't plan to make any more.

Emailed nearly ten different stores trying to find this in my size.
My persistence paid off.

Can anyone with the 601XX 1951 comment on the size of the pocket openings?  How big are they/ease of use?

Just ordered a pair of 601xx 1943s, been thinking about them for a long time and made the jump with a Rakuten coupon.
Still fully committed to the Denim Bridge contest but looking forward to these. :D

Super quick shipping from Speedway, lovely jeans! Will try to get some fit pics later, might need a hem on these as they're really closer to a 34 inseam vs. the 32 label.
Nice straight leg fit, plenty of rise. These will be great with my engineer boots in the fall. And the rivets are as sharp as advertised.

First day wearing the 43's and I feel like they're almost too baggy.  Front looks good, back (top block) looks really big.

Did you get your Buzz shirt one size up to account for shrinkage during wash or just your regular size?

They look good to my sufu trained and certified eye.

How do they fit compared to your Denimbridge pair in 38?

@mlwdp this is an XL, it’s a little slim and if I got another I might go for a XXL. 

@JohnM these feel massive compared to the contest jeans, more room all around. But again these are a very different cut.

they look great, and to me it proves my suspicion that most of your stuff is perhaps one size too small (for my taste at least). this look is already more balanced than many of your other fit pics in my eyes, an xxl in the chambray would be the icing on the cake. sorry for the unprovoked opinion! :D
