I found a worn pair of 32s that measures wearable for me, what amount of stretch and shrink are people experiencing with the Japanese made versions? I see some 32s listed measuring under 30” and this particular pair around 31”.
 
My w34 is a real W32

It is leather to make gloves, but I do not know its origin

Robroy- thanks! That is a gem.

If all those are Japanese production I’ve missed a few things- let’s keep an eye out on yahoo.jp for Japanese made 201s and 1983s...

These are my 1937 Japanese Levi's 501. From the inside label I think they were made in September 2003. It's a shame the leather tag is gone. I have preferred to sew a piece of leather to them that to leave it with nothing.
Having seen original Levi's from that era, the rear pocket bows on this replica are just too perfect.
I have also put some cat's eye buttons on them because they are a bit too big for me.
 
 
Regards.

^^Indeed. Now that I know what to look for, these late 90's Japan models do pop up in the vintage stores occasionally. I just found a pair of 702's in my size. Paid whopping 35€ for them. Buttons stamped "J22"
