    it's way more than 1 in 100. More like 5-10%. I've never had a problem finding a pair with the circle R tab when I felt like it. Nothing rare in the slightest.

    yes ive just brought some levis from a levis shop in nyc and i picked up a pair with a plain red tab, the lady behind the counter said they put it on only 1 out of every 10 pairs, i wasnt sure to go with these or to swap with a actull levis tab, but i went with the plain hopeing they might be alittle more "rare"?

    I recently checked this out myself and found that the R is on 1 out of every 100 pairs of jeans due to the change of cotton whilst sewing the branded word (Levis), please correct me if i'm wrong.

    I actually work at the Levi's in Nashville or tag means out of every hundred pair of pants made one of them was just going to be a plain R tag for example if you was to purchase a size 32X30 out of every hundreth pair of those produced one is going to have a plane R tag which In a way would make it rare especially in other countries like Europe considering they cost damn there $100 for one pair where in America you can get them for 60 so it is rare especially if you try to go to collection off of it

    Levis is changing their branding. They are now trying to make the red tab their logo, not the red tab that says Levis. Most new jeans should have the new packaging and as the jeans sell, the new tabs will come out.

    One out of 10 red Tabs on the back pocket of a pair of Levi’s[​IMG] jeans is a blank red Tab and does not include the name Levi’s[​IMG]. Check your red Tab and see if your pair is one of them.
    The red Tab was added to Levi’s[​IMG] jeans in 1936 because competitors were mimicking several features, especially the Arcuate, the signature stitching on the back pockets.
