S.O.S. I need help identifying / finding a pair of specific Levi's Pants. (Blue Corduroy Flares /...

post #1 of 3

Alright, I need your help! If anyone can help me out here.

 

I bought a pair of these Blue Corduroy Pants from the thrift store a few years ago, they're Levi's and they are my favorite pair of pants but I've worn them far out of usability. Thing is, I can't find them anywhere online at all, and the tag inside is completely faded so I don't have a way of getting the pants number. (I know Levi's makes their pants by numbers, like 505's or 525's and such)

 

Here's the information I can provide.

 

These must have been made in the 80's or afterwards since it's not a big E, it's a little e.

The tag on the back pocket is WHITE, not red.

There is no brown patch on the top to show size or anything like that.

The buttons say "Levi's Strauss & Co" going in a circle, metal buttons.

 

Here are the two major things, these are blue corduroy, and are either Flares or Bell Bottoms. I think they are considered flares though since they're not obnoxiously wide?

 

And the BIGGEST distinction about these pants are the back pockets, they are flapped, buttoned back pockets, and I have searched for hours to find a matching pair online and I cannot find a pair that have these same pockets. I've found a pair of woman's that look similar, I think they were 525's, but their pockets are pointed; not the same.

 

Here are a few photos:

 

 

 

 

ANY help whatsoever would be extremely appreciated. I have looked for a very long time before coming here, even created an account here just to ask for some information on this.

 

Thank you in advance!

what if you tried taking them to a levis store? they should definitely be able to tell you the cut (ie the number)...from there, you could find a comparable pair

So I went to a Levis Store and the guy there wasn't able to really tell me much at all.

Actually he told me that Macy's might sell them, but I am positive these are discontinued.

 

He DID tell me that (since I liked the pocket and that's what was really distinctive) that the style was called "the engineer" and was very popular "over seas" a long while ago..

But when I look up "Levis Engineer" or throw "Engineer" into the other words I use to search for these, nothing comes up.. Nothing ever refers to a pair of pants as an engineer style.. I have seen an engineer shirt? I think.. But not pants.

 

I'm still looking, if anybody has any input on this, it would be amazingly appreciated. I tried calling Levi, they said they can't help me, and they also said that it should have a brown patch that tells the size and stuff, but the guy at the Levi store said that all pants don't, and even showed me some new ones that don't.. I don't get it.

 

If someone found these somewhere online, I would even pay you. I am desperate to find these, I really am.

 

Thank you
