Jesus H. Christ. 40" inseam? Crazy (although I did order my 517's with a 38" inseam in order to reduce the flare after hemming to 33.5").

Those look good, interesting to know there must have been an extra tag for the Japanese etc market.

They were made in October 1998 (‘1098’ on the back of the left hand tag) and like Paul T has mentioned, the second inner tag is unusual but may be for the Japanese market.

Good deal @SF2Turbo if the hips didn't overly shrink you should be good. 

The denim was great on that pair but the fit didn't work out for me. Post some updates along the way. 

yeah fit in hip area very well i have lost a bit of size on my legs since iv stopped going gym, but i can see the fit becoming even better once im back at the gym. in the end the hanger may have been unnecessary since i don't know if that had an effect on stopping the leg width from shrinking. on my second soak after 4 months if they become dirty i will not use the hanger and see if i can get a little more shrink. but still very happy the denim waist is perfect. You were right about saying if the waist fit raw it will go back to that with wear it practically almost went back to it in 10-20 mins of wear. so wearing a full day the waist will go back to raw measurement

Thanks once again you saved me a lot of stress whilst they were hanging dry. Knowing i spent £180 lol:D

Rivets of the 501 -1966 model strangely I found whilst trying the 1947 and 1966 in the changing room that even the rivet styles are different depending on the models. 1966 has a rounder top and 47 looks like it’s been hammered down lot more flat .That’s how much of a geek I am paying attention to such small details

"At the end of 2017, one of the last selvedge denim producers in the United States, Cone Mills White Oak in Greensboro, North Carolina, closed its doors after 112 years of business. This end of an era also marked the termination of a partnership between Cone Mills White Oak and Levi’s. Levi’s Vintage Clothing is now celebrating the company’s long-standing relationship with the selvedge denim provider with two limited edition pieces..."

Meanwhile Cone mill's White Oak plant has been bought by Will Dellinger who apparently wants to produce denim again.

That’s some cool news 

if I was to change one thing about lvc that would make me a super happy about buying them it would have to be the thread , there stitching is horrible .... looks and feels cheap and gives them a really impersonal feeling ( like they were sewn together by a robot ) . Change to all cotton stitching and I don’t see why 90% of repro enthusiasts wouldn’t buy a few pairs

Part 2, now looking at the coin pockets of my 3 pairs with the "653" Button code, all non-selvedge, the one on the left is from '82, the other 2 are both from '83, all of them fairly wacko when compared to the earlier selvedge ones and also, the pocket openings are all single stitch. Again, you might need to maximize the pictures to see what I'm getting at. It's a completely different way of doing something fairly simple and standard on a 5 pocket jean, roughly within the same time period as the others but at a different factory.

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...:D

This is more of a vintage Levi’s than an LVC question but does anyone know the difference between the Lot 201 and Lot 203 jeans from the early 20th century?

EDIT: this has been answered elsewhere- the 203 was the children’s model but thanks for your interest anyway!

203 is the kid's size of the 201, same as the 503 was the junior 501 etc..

Edit: oops, sorry, didn't realise Maynard was there already.

Some of the codes did get re-used. IIRC 502 was a junior size and later became a different model. Kid's models of vintage Levi's are great because they're often available for less $$$$.

Finally got round to doing some fit pics of my LVC 501- 1966

lighting wasn’t perfect. May do some more fit pics after a few months wear.

i wanted a pair of relaxed fitting jeans these have come out almost perfect after shrinking and I feel there is still a little shrink left in the when soak them the second time. Only area I could have done better is the back but then again I’m back in the gym now time for them leg presses. And deadlifts.

Not easy to tell what they actually fit like, as they were not photographed with a the camera's sensor perpendicular to the ground.

That is true will take some more pics once I break them in a bit more the pics are slightly angled. Not that I asked for the pics to be taken that way. They fit relaxed tapered with a nice amount of room around the thighs and tapers down a little. I could have got a little more shrink but a stuck a hanger between the waist when hung dry causing less shrinking. I was scared I would lose too much in the waist.still happy with the fit .

Are these sized down or are they generally that slim?

I didn’t size down they fit me comfortably when I tried them on with the slightest room in the waist. The fit as regular tapered jeans. They look slightly slimmer in some of the pics but some pics are very accurate to what they look in person.  So def don’t fit slim around the thigh as I have some slim tapered fits which can be a pain in the ass if you ask me

a random post; but shopping w. daughter no.1 in londinium a few weeks back, ended up trying out 'ribcage' vs. lvc 710... - obz 710 wins, but apparently (word of lvc store) this model may be getting shelved for 'ribcage' dominance... (only of interest to the fem. lvc wearers... i.e. if wanting 710, get em now)

also /general interest/ apparently the lvc tests with Japanese mills for the jeans coming back all ok / approved but the jkts coming back a bit crispier, so more tests going forward (again, just spreading shop-floor-tittle-tattle for internet blah)

      Hello guys, It's my first post here. I am Denimseeker (ig: denim_seeker).
      I have been collecting vintage jackets for a while, esp. denim jackets. Feeling that the denim world deserves a better guide for Levi's denim jackets so I tried my best to make one. The guide is much more complicated than those you see on other websites (i.e. Heddel's or Long John etc) so you might need some basic understanding to read it. This guide is open for comments and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to let me know. This guide is still a work in progress and would be wonderful if everybody in the denim world can contribute.
      That being said, enjoy!

      Hi All,
      see you again on 2020 and I wish you all happy new year. this time I need your opinion about Levi's BIG E that I found at flea market few days ago. I found an old Levi's vest (its a jacket once before), this vest do not have a cinch back, I also cannot see the number on the back of button, tag was unavailable. only rivets, red tab and selvedge that I can see clearly. here's I send you the details. Hopefully someone here can give me an opinion regarding this Levi's. Any opinions are welcome, I do appreciated.
      please let me know.

      I checked the Encyclopedia thread and only one Levi's link didn't give a 404 error, so here goes nothing. I should add that a lot of the center patch jeans actually aren't vintage (at least the ones I'm looking for) and date back to around 2006. I've talked with Levi's support a handful of times and got nothing out of it. I'm trying to figure out what all the center patch pairs are. I know I haven't quite figured them all out, but I've found a few, though they seem very hard to come by, and obviously aren't currently in production. I'd really like to find a pair with the white "Quality Never Goes Out of Style" center patch. Something tells me I don't have the ideal wording, and if I knew exactly what to type, I could probably find a plethora of those jeans. When I google 519's, I have to block the words extreme or skinny (add a - in front of whatever word you don't want to see in the results) or I get mostly brand new pairs of 519's. Here's what I know so far:
       
      This pair, which can be seen clearly in the first photo and on this store page (which has other photos of the same pair) appears to be 519 slim fit. However, they don't seem to be the normal 519 slim fit. One site I looked at called them "519 slim fit side adjusters". I have looked extensively over the past couple of weeks and was lucky to find that clear photo, as well as that store listing and one Ebay listing which sold a while back. On a side note, I found that 511 skinny leg (or a version, rather) seems to look the same, with the centered white patch and waist adjusters, but they too are hard to find. The 511's and 519's have a white patch that says, "Quality Never Goes Out of Style". There may be others as well.

      You may recognize these from the Moonbathing ads. They are part of the "Two Horse Brand" collection, which have a yellow and white patch and say "Two Horse Brand" on the patch. 506 and 511 look identical, while 509 has the addition of a cinch back. There might be other fit numbers I'm missing.
