Make me an offer I can't refuse.
You might well know more about these than me. I bought them years ago from Japan. The story was that when Levi's put a stop to the CANE'S Red Tab broken arcuate versions, some of these jeans destined for various washes remained unwashed. Some of them sneaked out, and I got this pair. The code for these jeans is SC41947. You'll notice an "H" at the end of the code on the photo of the relevant label. SC41947H. If I recall, this means they were supposed to go through a "hard" wash. Clearly, however, these jeans were entirely unwashed. Again, if I recall, under a normal production run, free from the interference of Levi's, this means the code would've had an "N" at the end for "no wash" - SC41947N - or no letter.
They're the most incredible, substantial jeans. I'd still have them if they fitted. I've been ruthless about getting rid of so many clothes, but this is the one item I'd always want, if they still fitted. Please note they've shrunk to a usual extent, and the actual waist of these 32" jeans is now approximately 32" (as they were initially outsized).
They've been hemmed to approximately 30". The hem was chain-stitched at Son Of A Stag, Brick Lane, London, on a vintage Union Special machine.
They look even better in real life. Worn well, but there are signs of wear, mostly at the fold of one turnup (see photo 8). Clean, but to preserve colour rarely washed. There of course has been an amount of fade. Cold-soaked inside out, mostly hanged to air for extended periods, put in freezer. All the tricks.
Any questions, just ask. Make me an offer.
