@Broak 

As a newer member, I assure you there is a clique mentality here.

I have read through the archived posts and there used to be some great smartass comments and a brutal crowd but we are in the age of enlightenment now and alot of the fitpics show a maturing community of professionals. I can only speak for myself but I prefer encouraging new members to forums and if a guy posts incorrectly then a positive nudge is far more inclusive than neg repping with no attempt to assist so the error can be corrected. 

My apology for moving off topic.

Ultimately, if you like the jeans and want to wear them, it doesn't really matter if they're original, repos or even fake for that matter.
Sometimes it's easy to loose sight of this. 

Buy and wear what you like. 
if they're Lees chances are they'll be good jeans - you can't go too far wrong with any pair of Lee's. 

Welcome on board too.

What is wrong with you? 

First off it is Christmas.

Second, the new poster asked a simple question which fits 100% into the subject of this thread.

I suggest you adjust your attitude and grow up.

@indoverificator

I looked closely at the photos and I do see indications of genuine fading so I think it is possible that those pants were factory distressed as members have indicated but they have been worn long enough that there is also real-world fade also.

My comment was that this thread is really about nothing and going around in circles, no harm was intended to anybody who posts here mate, and yes I'm well aware it's Christmas, whatever that has to do with it.

It’s not a matter of bullying. If you were around in the earlier sufu days this wouldn’t have even been a blip on your radar. It’s a matter of disregard for how the forums work. He’s spamming Denimbro too. Next time just use the small questions thread or dedicated Lee thread.

i also post a thread on denimbro because I need opinion from them too. denimbro and superfuture is a different website that has different member, right? the more opinion i got means the more consideration that I have. that's all I need from you all, i only need an information for my denim from you that has more knowledge than me so i can learn.

Incoming; just purchased online.

A slightly high-water pair of Lees, which I estimate to be early-mid '70s. Still union made, but have a care tag and the MR.

The general wear appears fairly light – maybe only worn 100-200 days or so. One small hole, which is easy to fix. I normally wear a 30–32 inch inseam, so these are a big short at 29". But I liked the rest of the jeans so much that I will deal with that. I'll just wear shoes that look good with it.

^ Got these. Looks like they're actually early '80s. I couldn't tell from the care tag based on photos.

Anyone know how to decode a year of manufacture based on label codes? What about the number on the United Garment Workers of America label?

The style and color are 200-0147

Code under that: 0511211445CON205 (this code is the key to determining the year, I think)

On the care tag: CA 00492 and RN 34783 (these seem to be consistent across a wide variety of Lee items – probably codes for the care instructions)

On the union label: 4917083 (I think)

      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.

      Hi SuFu –
       
      We are Standard & Strange, based in Oakland, CA.  We're a denim-centric menswear shop.  You can find us right at 5010 Telegraph Ave, next door to Pizzaiolo.
       
       

       
      Our brand list is extensive, to say the least, but here's the highlights:
      Full Count
      Ooe Yofuketen
      Indigofera
      Masterson's
      Free Note
      Rogue Territory
      Momotaro
      Japan Blue Jeans
      Tellason
      Circle of Friends
      Naked & Famous
      Shockoe
      Thrux Lawrence
      Monitaly
      Alden
      Trickers
      Yuketen
       
       
      We buy brands that we believe in, without compromise.  Initially, it was only Made In USA goods, but as we traveled and were introduced to more and more great brands, we added Canada, Japan, Europe, and the UK to our roster.
       
      We're constantly expanding our denim selection with the goal of being able to fit just about anyone to a great pair of jeans, whether it's N&F weird guys in stretch selvedge denim, or 18oz Momotaro Natural Tapers.  We take the same approach to shirts, jackets, boots, and everything else – we try to have fits that work for just about anyone. 
       
      About our name – one of my areas of interest has always been urban development, planning, and use, and one of the standout books in that area is “The Death and Life of Great American Cities†by Jane Jacobs.
       
      There's a passage that's stuck with me over the years:
               "Cities, however, are the natural homes of supermarkets and standard movie houses plus delicatessens, Viennese bakeries, foreign groceries, art movies, and so on, all of which can be found co-existing, the standard with the strange, the large with the small." (bold emphasis mine).
       
      When we found our original space – in Temescal Alley – it was on it's 3rd rebirth – originally horse stables, the store fronts in the alley had long been used as cheap storage lockers.  When we built out the space we were tearing out boards that been there for 100+ years.
       
      Our goal – whether it's denim, boots, or shirts – is to make sure every person coming through our door gets what they want, even if it's just a shot of whiskey and a warm welcome.
       
      The best place to catch us online outside of here is Instagram, and via our email list.

      We get a bit obsessive about our denim details - here's a macro of Full Count's 100% Zimbabwean cotton:

      Hello - I have a larger personal collection of vintage workwear.  Lee Hair-on-hide, a pair of 1947 Wranglers, Stifel wabash chore jacket and matching overalls, are some of the collection's highlights.  Most are larger size as they had to fit me (of course) - I am a large shirt (US), and most pants are a 32 waist 32 inseam or larger.  Some really great stuff.  Levis jackets from each era, Early Lee and Wrangler jackets. Chore jackets galore.  Racing tees from the 60's.   Boss Of The Road vintage "no belt loop jeans" as well as the same in a Boss of the Road khaki (with wax marks from walking through the mine!).  I just don't wear this anymore.  I live in Los Angeles.  Some of the stuff was even featured in SUPERTALK magazine  a few years back.  The first Levi denim banner as well as another early one.  Too much stuff!  Selling as a collection or in piece.
