@bartlebyyphonics Your recent pair of 1890s seems quite tapered. Did you taper them or are they actually like that ?
I've been actually thinking of getting a pair of those or a 501Zxx to alternate with my 1944s.

maynard: re; 1901, good to know & well... maybe... that leaves something to look forward to for 2020 and the post-cone horizon then!

crispy: no tapering going on... I think it is really the angle of that shot (the perils of an iPhone on the floor and its piddly lens...) - by my attempts they measure pretty straight from knee to hem (around 9 inches on a 36w model) - also to note the back rise is pretty epic on these; around 18 inches with a 13 inch front rise; so when worn on waist def. not a 'clean fit' on the behind... and also much lighter denim than a 40s/50s model (around 9oz)

I use this as an excuse to put up more bad shots of their silhouette from a better angle and of just how goddamn hairy they are when in a one soak condition just a few wears in...

I've got these lying about and i think it's time that i get them passed on to someone, who can actually fit them. Only i don't know what these are worth. They're are a pair of '47 501s from june of '99 as far as i can tell. Never worn. I bought them thinking they were a 36 length, but as the inner tag indicates, the patch is misprinted. What would you reckon they are worth? If anybody as a pair of 555 '47s or '55s lying about but in a bigger size they'd wanna trade, i'd be up for it. 
They measure about 38,5 cm in width, 79 cm in length.

Hey Eldani, nice to see. But the trouble with that denim is it shrinks loads. If they measure 32x32 then chances are that they will end up a 30x29.
Because of that fact, if they were a 34 or 36 waist, with at least a 36 inseam, then l think £250-300 (see my pair on page 1 of this thread) but because of the size £100-150 is my guess.

Thanks for the assessment, Heech. If i could get within that range, that'd still be good enough for me, they aren't doing me much good in the closet, which is a shame because they are probably some of the nicest jeans I've ever seen. 

Where would be a good place to put 'em on sale? Grailed? Sufu? I'm not to aware of where things go down as far as selling denim online.

With good pics you can try the forums' marketplace first to avoid fees, if no joy then grailed or ebay l suppose?
