Found this pair http://www.ebay.com/itm/29-x-30-New-Levis-527-Boot-Cut-Jeans-Dark-Blue-Everglade-Straight-Fit-Low-Rise-/360710512327?pt=US_CSA_MC_Jeans&hash=item53fc059ec7 and noticed a few things:
- 2 watch pockets, both without rivets
- 3 lines of stitching on the front pockets
- 2 belt loops on the back
- A white line (of stitching?) running between the 2 top lines of horizontal stitching on both back pockets
- "Reinforced" outside seams down to crotch level.
Can anyone provide any information on these? (My "normal" is my 514 tumbled rigid which I bought a few weeks ago in a Levi's store in Vancouver BC).
Also, is it just me or are all shops out of stock for 527s? One store in HK said they weren't going to get any 527s for at least 3 years…
