^doc, I want to say those are the only "guaranteed" 20's Levi's I've potentially seen, at least with the exposed back rivets visible, and pocket shape. Am I correct in assuming?

No idea who, when or where...

My wife just posted this to Facebook- more for the sentiment than the clothing, but I like the whole feel of this pic

Was this Korean war or later? Despite the prop plane I'm thinking it's definitely later then WWII. The helmets also suggest this to me. Cool pic btw!

Hello all.
In same boat as Aho, looking for 1920s general denim fit pics (rather than levis specific)
Here is some images I have found in my search that I thought I could share: 

 a Camel ad from 1918 featuring genuine wrangler steez



some Paul Strand work wear from 1930s (Maine) and 1950s (Italy) from Philadelphia Museum archive





a pictorialist farmer... Doris Ulmann's 'A Farmerette' from 1925
