Hi guys,

First time posting here although I've lurked for ages now. Picked up what I thought were a bargain pair of vintage Big E 501S from eBay but I've a strong suspicion they are fake. Originally bought from Thailand they're new with tags. Photos are attached if anyone can confirm I'd greatly appreciate it!

Cheers

phony levi 501 "wash whit like colors" 
mostly been a work pair and have very minimal fading for the amount of wear. not a lot of puckering either for the amount of trips through the drier. originally tagged 34x30 but measured 35x34 , now measure 34x31







rivet popped off in a wash, still have it. always thought levis rivets were a peg thru a hole not  a cap. maybe just cuz their bootleg



the weft has curled  pretty oddly, washed and dried these with the pair of 505 many times. last time being on a clothesline.



 had to replace a button that fell off these too.




 patch is from a different pair that was on another pair before this



505 made in Dominican Republic
original "regular" fit. got these after they changed (ruined) the current fit into "straight"  with oversized low rise waist. before i went down the rabbit hole about repro's. 




















thought this was a lee detail

66 501 irregular with screen printed pinstripes
really oversized havve shrunk a lot but still pretty huge for the tag. i wear these with a huge innercuff
















551zxx 555 just got these off ebay amazing fit and love all the details












how i could afford these

those 551zxx are still one of the better repros, although they suffer from excessive hip flaring...

Hmmm... 1880 xx with non-sewn buttons which are branded? Surely 1890's? Maybe it's a typo

you are right about the buttons, which also confused me a bit. but all other features seem right...
maybe lvc change the suspender buttons before production starts.

Inseam: 34"/32"/5%
Thigh: 13"/11.5"/11.5%
