Call each other names!?!  Come on Randy, we're far too mature on this board for that malarky. 
I like that pair anyway.  Compared to the earlier, Valencia St versions.  The arcuate is definately more representitive of those early models for a start (also the originals only has three fly buttons, not four I believe).  I think overall, the 1873 model has improved gradually over the years  
Here's a pair from 1998, notice the shallower arc.

Sansome and I talked it over and decided it would be a good idea to document and discuss the accuracy of all the LVC denim and duck models, starting with the earliest repros. Obviously this will take some time. Dr_Heech and I compared notes and I think I have a comprehensive list of the relevant releases.
 A couple things first:
 Sometimes these discussions get heated, which is great, but let's not actually call each other names over the historical accuracy of LVC.
 Let's be respectful of LVC as well. They have made obvious mistakes over the years, and it's fine to point that out here, but some mistakes were based on lack of data and archival garments, while others were based on financial considerations or, occasionally I suppose, carelessness. Let's give the benefit of the doubt.
 For the earliest stuff, Sansome & non-riveted have collected a lot of relevant garments that shed new light on these, so this could be a learning experience for Levi's & LVC as well as Denimbros.
 I figure when we get to around the 1920s other experts will take over from NR & S, as this is getting outside of their period of interest.

First up is a denim 1873 repro. This should represent Levi's very earliest riveted pant. This example was made at Taylor Togs in 2007 from Japanese natural indigo denim. There is another repo called the "Oldest Oldest" which more closely represents the earliest Levi's- be patient and keep that in mind while we're looking at this one, which was LVC's first attempt at reproing Levi's first riveted pant. We'll get to the "Oldest Oldest" in a moment.
