Going back to your question, are you referring to original Levi's cuts 47's and 55's, or Lvc?  I'm assuming the former, so I'll go with that.
So for me the first pair are a '46-'51 cut, despite the offset belt-loop.
So without further possible hair-splitting - a '47
The second pair look very similar in cut.  It's also interesting that Sugarcane went to great pains to pick up on all the details that the (then) typical vintage Levi's fan enjoyed, and over time trying to improve those details in a more accurate context within each model (remember the earlier 501Zxx SC model with the two-tone stitched back pocket arcs and Nos Gripper zipper?)  
 
So again, a 47 cut.
 
 
 
The last pair, the 37 cut are very impressive: The cut is bang on late 30's Levis, and is that another laurel leaf fly button? I can remember seeing a pair years ago that Larry (from Heller's Café) had, showing all the hallmarks of the pre-war Levi's jean but with a Lauel leaf button.  So again, Sugarcane were paying attention.  Lvc could've learned a lot from these guys.
 
Good stuff Clap


Thanks Charlie, as always your spot on!

This confirms my suspicions so im going to leave the op as is.
If only we could apply said knowledge to real world situations we would be rich...rich i tells ya!

Many thanks for the comments Duke & illumin8em, if they did include me. 
But Double 0 Soul is definitely the man of the hour.

The button fly of the 37 cut is a work of art.

I'm really enjoying the SC story 00, looking forward to the next instalments.

I've just returned from a trip to London Zoo with the family. We went inside an old Victorian-looking aviary building, which had some bird silhouette pictures on display - there was a Hawaiian Duck right next to an Okinawa Woodpecker. I wonder how many other people look at them and immediately think 'Sugar Cane'!?

Very nice Neal, similar stella quality to my 1930 Lee 101 cowboy overalls.
Love the 'V stitch' - accurately realized and executed.
