Somewhere in between the timespan of the effectuation of the Marshall Plan and James Dean’s tragic car accident these jeans were produced. In other words, we’re somewhere around the late 1940s to the early 1950s. The jeans are owned by Maurizio Bisozzi from Rome who picked them up in a vintage store in Denver back in the summer of 2008. They feature hidden rivets, selvage (of course), single sided Red Tab, a tiny bit of leather patch, V-stitch at the top button, and a hole lot of Lemon coloured thread.
Super authentic and very beautiful wear pattern, and I really love the track down along the outer seam.
Around 1955 Levi’s introduced the double sided Red Tab, which means that these jeans are from before that year.
It is a bit hard to tell what the button stamp says.
