Me too Charlie. Flash was kind enough to lend me his copy last year, which I then passed on to 00, it's a great book.

I think l paid that for a copy, this time last year. Worth every penny imo.

Glad you got a copy Martin!

It seems that both Real McCoys London and superdenim.co.uk now have copies of The 501XX in stock. A bit spendy at £85 but I've searched fruitlessly for long enough so decided to treat myself.

About a week ago, I got a chance to see a Levi piece- from what looks like 1876......my theory for the last few years has been- they didn't put every garment guaranteed or every pair guaranteed on labels until after 1893......we know when they first started using the two horse brand in 1887- up through, sometime after 1893- there were no lot numbers or every garment guaranteed until after 1893- nor did I ever see ads before the 1891 saying every pair or every garment..... So this pant from 1876- has a label that you can read.......and the words every pair guaranteed was on it- so I was wrong about when it first shows up.

Nowt wrong with a bit of vintage on a Sunday mate.

Whatever's left of them after Jack's trashed 'em, what will you do - put them in a frame?*

(*in the spare room of course).

Sorry, nothing to add.  Just absorbing the goodness.
My coat has nine buttons, but I always fascinate.
