Some screenshots l took of a pair of 47's some time back from Marvins vintage store. They are a 'mistake' pair  having a double tab which someone has ripped off. Nice size.

I scored some interesting 501s from eBay and they look to be some of the first small e 501s produced. The care instructions are printed on the pocket bags but there’s a small e. They must be some kind of transition model made around 72/73. It’s got a 6 button, single stitch, and the last bit of yellow thread near the coin pocket. Other than the missing patch and the hem (26in inseam…) the condition is amazing.

How could I possibly forget…

These are actually a perfect fit aside from the inseam coming up 2 inches short. I might send them off to get the hem redone with a proper thread color and chainstitch

I wonder if  the 082 stands for August 1972, that would fit the timeline? I’m talking about the 082 on the pocket bag.

Hi all, wondering if I could get some help dating a recent pickup, a deadstock 70505 (e).

Only been able to narrow it down to some point after 1972 and before 1984.

Anyone know when this particular care tag was swapped in for 70505s? It doesn't match the all caps care tag you see on the latest big E 70505s and what I would assume are the earliest lowercase e 70505s. I wonder what the transition years were between the two. It matches the ~1973 to ~1984 501 care tags, but I'm hesitant to draw much from that- I've got a 70505 (E) with a three digit button code (its in storage, I think it reads 524), because of that I am cautious about placing similar timelines between jackets and trousers. There's no text on the other side of the care tag. The 479 on the yellow cutter's tag is my best bet, for April 1979, but wondering if anyone has any knowledge here.

This jacket took a trip to the laundromat today and is now hanging out on my fire escape!

If the backside of the wash tag has numbers, it should have the date.

can you post a picture or type what numbers are on the back of the tag.

Bummer- just run with the 1979 date, that certainly could be the date.

Only took a few quick snaps so far, but here’s a pair of mid 50’s 501’s.

I do love that insane legtwist.

I haven't been keeping up with these...Man that pair on the far left is graily for me (and honestly, those 1922's had me jaw dropping)

Recently picked up these dungarees what were lovingly repaired to keep them in service. Given the small laurel wreath buttons, slubby denim and high rise, I'm guessing1930's or wartime dungarees? The legs are cut straight with little to no taper. Simply designed workwear that are still going strong.
