    That thing looks mint. Probably from 1983-1986 judging from the black label.

    Yeah, when I was in Tokyo a few years ago I saw the repros. That stuff is hot over there. They are reproducing Banana Equipment as well.

    i've seen many fake pairs of 501s, not one fake jacket.

    so unless there's something that screams repro or fake, i would simply look for real patina on the button fronts and there's likely a stamp on the back of the buttons. normally wear/age on the stitching, where you would expect to see that kind of thing.

    compare to a few on ebay and call it a day. nice fade, btw.

    The button backs are not number stamped, but I found a couple places that said they should ether be single digit stamped or not stamped at all.

    First encounter, so not sure. Will post detail pics in the next day or two.

    Well, I'm still up....so.

    If it is real, my searching leads me to think 1962. ? Due the the "Every Garment Guaranteed" Slogan, which was discontinued around the release of the No 3 Trucker.

    Hard to capture the backs, but they have a neat "grid" arrangement of marks, probably from the tool that pressed them on.

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] That's about right I would say 62 to 67. This jacket is the 557 xx model wich is the first introduction to the type-3. The 557 xx is the shorter version of the type 3. It's good there's no stamping on the button back as that would be an lvc. They should look like a weirdly stamped x or look like centipede legs. It's most definitely not lvc as there is nothing after the 557 indicating the lot it came from. Second there's bar tacks under the front flap pockets wich is not present on anything after 1970. Third is the single row of stiching next to the bottom button hole. This could be selvedge edged but they rolled it under so you can't see it. Fourth it's what they call a big patch 557. And fifth it's size label is numerical wich was changed to s,m,l.

    not to nitpick but i can clearly see a bar tack there i assume the other one is hidden with stray yarn, the thread is dark either black or indigo. look on the inside of the jacket they will be more clearly seen.

    i have a 70s example (circle r) with "black flags" in the same spot. same as my tv big Es.

    It's not in yellow stich is the point. The book clearly states yellow stich not black or blue. no question it's legit. Or you going to call this one fake to?

    Since I was in my vintage levis container I don't think I ever showed the size of these bitches. That's a 44l it's the size of a thigh bone.

    I know right? I'm always wondering what could be at a store, and stopping by even for just 5 minutes. There has been multiple times where I will go to a store... get nothing... Walk down the street to get something to eat, come back to my car... Pop back into the store just to see, and BANG. Shitloads of nice stuff or hefty grails.

    Interesting... All I ever seem to score is dang denim and more suits. I find so many suits that I'm leaving behind decent ones because I have so many at home -_-. If I had 0 inventory, I would be copping those BB's and Canalis, etc.
