Yep, it would be “pantalones” for pants in Spanish. I’ve also read about Levi’s exporting to Mexico fairly far back.

Looks like the seller is the only one with access to the original photo but is selling reprints:

Who’s willing to buy it?

Look like a triple pleat to me. But I don't see a pocket on the jacket (might just be the photo quality). Did Levi do a no pocket version?

The pocket would be further down- and it sort of looks like there might be one?

My blue outline was to hopefully point out the triple pleat. Pocket-wise, it appears there may be some shadowing where the pocket would be. Since the etsy photo is so bad, I tried googling up the original photo with no luck.

Ah- yea triple definitely outlined- I would get a copy from the owner, but getting the best scan or print seems
Highly unlikely?
