I need a Levi's expert to help me ID these as real, repros, fake, or what??. . . They were sold to me as original late 60's vintage. . .but I think they are too good to be true. They are in almost immaculate shape, still lots of indigo, and the denim is very nice, reminds me of my Corpus denim but slightly softer. I know too little about Levi's to tell, the ionly thing i can compare them to is an old vintage Big E jacket that I have, but the jacket is much more worn in, softer, and much more naturally aged. Some things that bother me about these. . .they actually say 501 on the reverse of the top button (I thought there should only be one digit, unless they are LVC which are 555??) The red line in the selvedge is very apparent, while most models I see on ebay are only white or very faint red (unless these are just not worn in enough?) And the inside rivets say LS & Co., etc., but the lettering is raised, while I think authentic rivets had the letering pressed in?? Here are some pics. . . coin pocket inside: Sorry if I'm killing the bandwidth here, but any help is certainly appreciated, thanks in advance.
