This was the thickest denim I had ever come across ( felt like 14-16 ounce) This pant was made after the patent expired, it had  L.S & Co S.F rivets. Note- this pant has sewn buttons, watch pocket on the waistband, center label and denim pocket bags. Charla found a article in 1900- it said that Levi Strauss was selling all of their clothing patterns, they were no longer going to do piece work.... The entire clothing line was now going to be made by the Levi factory in San Francisco. I think a lot of the clothing we have seen in books including this piece here^^^^ was not made by the factory.

All Levi pieces date before 1876, as you can see....No arc's, that's really no surprise because Levi's competition didn't have any decorative stitches on their back pockets...there is one exception- Neustadter bros had a flower stitch on their back pocket in 1875.

 Do you have any other 506's?

I have a really dark blanket lined type 1 (519 XX) in a great 44" chest which came out of an estate in Boston MA. Its a shame actually I rarely wear it as its just a bit too boxy/heavy and really hard to wear with other things without "looking like a costume" (in the words of hellers Larry) but I keep it cos its quite rare, which is also why I'm reluctant to post pics, its not even on the blog!

ps Happy Birthday!

Yeah, come on Chris - get those rarities posted on here, we wanna see what you've got! 
I will try and take some pics of the two 'new' acquisitions I picked up lately, plus some stuff you asked for on the 557xx Big smile
 
(btw may have to start a Levi Strauss 1962-1984 thread)
