Is the word LEVI’S® in all capital letters, or does it have a small letter “e” instead? The Tab with LEVI’S (also known as “Big E”) means that your jeans are from before 1971.

(Taken from Valentine Magazine – November 1970)

Lee and Graham are both seventeen and are still at school in the East End of London. As soon as we met they informed me that this article was too late – that the old really close-cropped skinheads were a dying breed! “All the blokes are growing their hair a bit now”, Graham said. “The birds like it a bit longer…”

read the whole article over here:

We wanted to look smart and, dare I say it, business-like... coloured laces would have looked to incongruous and out-of-step to our lot.
Heard the old amonia tales - never witnessed anything of the sort, though.

Amonia in lemon jiffy bottles was quite a thing over Chelsea then along came distress flares ......

Theres a huge cross over too, where the likes of Big E white labels were used right up until the 80's, just using old stock etc...

 

Ive seen many terrible shaped Levi Corduroy jackets but with the Big E label, and likewise, proper shaped ones with small e..

Make you right Gramps.. Dead stock Big E Levis would still be available into the 80s, There was a shop in the Aldwych London, that had loads old dead stock Ben Shermans for years after into the 80s.

Top quality, Ed.
Note the tiny stitched in turnups. Great.
post #9479 of 19279

They look like cut offs curling up at the bottom more than tiny stitched turn ups to me. But my eyesight aint all that, nice picture though.

 

Here's my hero aged 18 at the start of 1968/69 season, he made his first appearance of 854 for Spurs in 1969 against sunderland. Nice barnet!

Not only dead stock gear Roy, but also, Levis just using up what ever they had left lying about in the factory right up until the 80's.
