I could be wrong, but I believe the ones that sold are the straight leg version of a slim fit buckle back which I have (R21's), which are amazing - really hairy, slubby Japanese denim. I know that a season after the slim fits were released, they released a straight leg version made from the same Japanese denim, and these look similar. Again, I could be very wrong.
You were correct these are of the Cone variety. He posted another pic of the inside pocket which reads Made In the US of the Finest American Woven Selvedge Denim. Bummer

The problem with Silvio is he buys all the denim at outlet prices for $45-60, so he prices everything $210, regardless if the MSRP is $300 or $500.
$210 for the Boss jeans was a steal. $210 for the Cone bucklebacks is meh, since they were all over the SH sale and ebay for the past few months.
I blew it with Sil, we agreed to 190 shipped and I balked. Serves me right for dicking around....

I think those were the R27 cotton / linen blend, straight leg buckle backs. Also great. Very slubby Japanese fabric that looked and felt a lot like SC 40105 Okinawa's.
Are these the ones you are speaking of?
These are similar to the ones that sold, but with a few subtle differences. The ones that sold the attached white label at the top reads R27 but these read lot R36.
Here is the link to the pair that sold for reference...
