Sympathy- Bravo, nice score- If those were mine, I would hold on to those for 10 or more
years before i sold them.

Here are my favorite- thrifted 501's from what looks like 1986.
I wore them almost every day for months, the denim is so thin
on the front, i put more damage on them every time i wear them.

653 is the button number- I will double check tomorrow on some of my other wash
tags like this- I believe the 096 stands for September 1986- I will confirm Tomorrow.

I’ve seen so many wash tags over the last 2 months- it’s hard to keep thing straight.
The 096 checks out September 1986 is what it is 100%

hi, i wonder if anyone knows when levi´s first started to produce outside the USA, what
types and where... i assume that in case of europe the production started with the ending of the big E era.

In Lynn Downey’s ‘Levi Strauss & Co’ book, it states on p98 that offices and factories started opening globally following the creation of Levi’s International Division in 1965.
