Never owned a pair of SC-47's without arc's and tab

..which makes me think, how much are Levi's-esque red tab and arcs worth to you?

SC-47's £118, NOS £185 = £67

Sugarcane's aside, would i pay an extra £67 on top of the cost of my jeans for red tab + arcs?
Yes! in a heartbeat, i would happily pay more, more still in the case of CSF Wacko
I'll endorse anything for cash

I'm a sucker for a tab. Not so much arcs. That little rectangle of colour makes all the difference to me.

While not having a tab isn't a dealbreaker if i come across a bargain, I would invariably move or add tabs as neccessary, but given the choice- tabs & arcs YES!

I recently bought mrs B some de-tagged 701s off ebay, and would like to attach a tab - how would you normally do this? looks like a fiddly job...

Selvedge is usually a deal breaker for me as I have to cut it off then overlock the raw edges by hand.

Assuming the tag had been cut off

1: unpick pocket thread & remove remnants of old tab
2: find new tab
3: put new tab in place
4: Look for right colour thread
5: Can't find the right colour thread
6: nip out to haberdashers
7: spend 30 mins deliberating about what thread to use
8: buy nearest thread possible
9: thread up the machine
10: machine jams
11. Spend 2 hours trying to get the machine working properly with that thread
12: Sew in new tab
13: unpick stitching cos your sewing skills are shite
14: repeat step 12
15: repeat step 13
16: Think 'Fuck it, that'll do. if anyone's staring at my bum hard enough to detect that the stitch length/colour on my right pocket isn't an exact match, then I probably have bigger things to worry about'.

I think most Bros would bypass the machine step and simply bang out a quick handjob.

Why do it with your hands when someone's developed a perfectly good machine that does it more efficiently?

I never realised that I full life was empty without a baby
… and so it follows
I never realised days could have more than 24h in them

I never understood the need for fashion (yet I must follow fashion - of some kind)
I never went beyond UK borders until I was I my 20's … then I found it difficult to get back … what a wonderful world
I never have ever been caught shoplifting
I never had coffee until I travelled beyond aforementioned UK borders - now I would be very unhappy to not have good coffee (which is not filter, cafetiere or some other miscreation)
I never have managed to swim
(Even as a child) I never agreed (with) or accepted the bible (all variants are included) or any other 'holy' book regardless of religion
I never have ever lost a fight
I never have vomited whilst shitting simultaneously (despite the effort)
