I googled the SKU number 00501 1931 and it returns a lot of Japanese sites including Levi's Japan which states they are Cone Mills 12oz denim

This is them, just different tags I think.



The tags are fairly blank - I thought they said Levi's Premium Goods but they say nothing much, not even shrink-to-fit. The booklet that was attached to them contains the caption "photo courtesy of Cone Denim LLC" which is fairly oblique but is the only reference to the denim I can find attached.

For sizing, here is how the 32x32 I got turned out:

Tag size 32x32
Actual size 35x32
Current actual size 33x30
Current nominal size 32x30

So after a fairly hot shrink a tagged 32 waist started out as 35 actual and ended up as 33 actual to fit a 32 actual waist (the tagged waist is the size it ends up as, the tagged leg is the size is starts out from, which makes no sense whatsoever lol).

Current flat dimensions for my 32x32 are:

Waist 16.5
Rise 11
Thigh 11
Knee 8.5
Hem 8

So nearly all the taper is from thight to knee, as it should be.

Just measured my old 80s/90s 501s and they both have the same dimensions so these are pretty classic, certainly nothing like the 'antifit' nonsense of the 00s.

You're worth your weight in gold, covskin. Thanks for this.

 

And yeah, I googled the 501s you linked, and they look dark enough indeed. Think I'm getting a pair as well.

Cone Mills is still one of the biggest denim manufacturers, supplying denim for Levi's since 1910...

I think with the Adam suit you could just about, get away with a [small] polka dot tie, but nothing fancier.

 

Well, yes, sometimes mixing patterns can work but in his case the statement is "I'm a berk"!

Never understood what a ''hipster'' is, just seem like trendy middle class types who copy from other subcultures to me.

It is how they seem to be perceived, you never really seem to see hipsters in working class neighborhoods in Britain, and you hear a lot about them gentrifying  areas, just look at certain parts of london.

 

If you are unwilling to explain then people will stay ignorant.

Yep, cultural magpies with "creative" non jobs and loadsa disposable income. They also come with a penchant for bad tats and an almost religious dedication to full facial hair. Penchant...

I'd still recommend a pair of uniqlo raw selvedge Donkey Jacket. The denim on mine from 4 years ago shits all over the lvc 1947s i have, although not as heavy as the lvc 1967, the denim looks better. They're not so low waisted that it's a problem, just slightly lower than a 501.It also depends how you wear em.

They were so cheap at the time i wore a pair for work until they fell apart...

Hahaha! Easy mate, no one is making personal attacks, just an opinion. I live in San Francisco and believe me, I know what a hipster is. I've also been a HUGE Blur fan since about 1991 and while I'm into their music, they absolutely are middle class wankers haha! Lighten up fella.
