Great comparison! Coin pocket and belt loops have the biggest differences? And the back pockets as well?

the back pockets often look wrong on Japanese repros for some reason.

Now im still waring the 22501xx , so all of those are keep in the box after took picture :laugh2:

Thanks @silencejoe

Hey if you ever want to rid yourself of those 37"s or 42's, let me know :D

Why is the red tab blank on the 37's (?) BTW?

Interesting looking at your two (similar) pairs of bucklebacks, the 37's and 42's. Apart from the buckles, the blank tab and denim weight, what differences are there between them?

Apologies for the interrogation @silencejoe  - it's just l don't get out much atm :wacko: and these models/details somehow fascinate me.

Think it's because of the back story of how they came to light after those 'secret' vintage meet ups with Konaka san and certain anonymous collectors, showcasing the subtle changes over the years leading up to the war model. Your 37's and 42's have the same yoke construction, unlike my 41's, so in a way they are bookends in a time when they (levis) were experimenting (?) with construction of their 501's. I'm not 100% sure what the actual reasons are for that change in construction (the yoke going the other way up sometime between 1939 and 1941 l'm guessing?) but most if not all of Levis competitors had the Flipped yoke (sunny side up :laugh:) from 1925 onwards so maybe we will never know?

My recollection was that they were the same, but your comments made me think otherwise. I think the big fella wears his jacket to the gym and during his workouts :laugh2:

Aye yes indeed... I was wearing it for a run until my lad started whipping me on the finish up the hill... so I weighed the CSF and the Canes and the 2kg combined weight explained the difference!!  Honest guv it did

Back to sports kit again - need all the help I can get these days!

Been putting a good bit of wear into my ww2 s406xxx and thought it was due a wash . Was expecting a nice bit of fading going on ..... but instead it actually looks newer :D , think my water mains may be connected to the fountain of youth . So instead of embarrassing myself with my "fades" I just took pics of the awesome puckering instead

20210404_123900

 

Same thing happened with mine mate. Was all looking good then l washed it on 40 and then after it dried, it was like my Mum had ironed it or something. Felt almost raw.

At first was a little miffed but with time and wear the creases resettled and the fades returned.
