Nice one Joe,
Judging from the paper patch fragment I will put it late 50s early 60s, what do you think?

My father-in-law and I did some long range errands today, we thrifted on the way back home. I scored this 70’s dragon
Bong for a $1, then hit 2 crappy thrift stores in a row…said F-it, let’s head for home, 5 miles down the road, nah- let’s hit one more- father-in-law brings me a pant, says you should look at this. I can tell denim looks old, as he’s holding it up- I see hidden rivets- shows me it’s a big E ( I know he doesn’t know what he has) I look at the back of the one sided Tab
I couldn’t believe it.

34/35 waist 29/30 L

I’ll post some pictures tomorrow

Amazing! I gave up looking in thrift stores years ago. Maybe I shouldn't have quit.

Thanks Dr. !
It's me again. Basically the first edition of the guide book is ready. I have added a lot of texts and additional info/history to it to make it more functional. I promise it is 500% better than the first draft. =)


 
Hi,
Does any denimbro have the chance to save this updated version with additional info/texts from Denimseeker and kind to share again? The original link from Denimseeker is empty. 
Thanks, 
Sleepy
