Maybe I took the thigh measurement too low.  I'll re-measure again tonight, as well as the front and rear rise measurements.  And no worries!  Happy to help provide a little content and knowledge.

Ok, re-measured the thigh, and measured the rise:

Thigh: 12"
Front rise: 12 1/2"
Rear rise: 15 1/2"

Let me know if you'd like any additional information!

Hi everyone — I'm new to Denimbro and I'm looking for some help determining the age of my Levi's Type III jacket. I bought it for about $25 from a thrift store in New York City about nine years ago. I've attached some photos.

Here are some important details:

- Two pointed flap chest pockets
- No side pockets
- Lowercase "E"
- Single-stitching adjacent to bottom button
- Black/blue stitching on underside of pockets
- 529 code on back of buttons (anyone know which factory this indicates?)
- Includes care instructions label
- Inside label is quite worn but I suspect it says "70505 217" or something similar

The fact that it has the lowercase "E" AND single-stitching leads me to believe it falls into the transition period between late-60s and 1971. However I've read elsewhere that the care instruction label didn't appear until the mid-70s.




Any assistance is much appreciated. Thanks!

James

Would have had to be made after 1973 as this is when the lower case 'e' replaced the old big E?

1972-1981 Small e with no hand warmer pockets, I believe.
The 1981 date for starting to use the hand warmer lower pockets is an estimate, unconfirmed.
But my mind says I read that somewhere...
