Hey, first time posting. I like vintage Levi's.

Alright cool got that out of the way, I was looking at these 501's I got recently and right before I was going to put them away I noticed this faint (from afar) blue stitching in the middle of the waistband and goes all around the waist ending at the top button. Never seen this before, what do you guys think? Hopefully I'm not the only one who doesn't have an explanation for this. lol

^Looks like it (on the left) Flash.

They look 1980's to me, so the very tail end of 'vintage'.

Dr._Heech you are correct these are from the 1980's here are a few more pictures. sorry i am about the flood this thread with images... the stitching though it does go under the belt loops but its easy to miss, I had the jeans under a light to photograph the stitching but then again I noticed it without someone pointing it out to me (but I almost didnt) anyway it can only be seen from the outside as in it doesnt
protrude onto the inside waist seam. It's a really nice blue actually. Top button is stamped "653".
