    Yeah, the colour looks nice. But I don't know, are these the new ones? The fade different than old Denimes I've seen. And I prefer those.

    And I found the detail my 1951XX also has. Selvage pocket bags?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's a detail that older jeans had and the 66 didn't. So a repro should as well. (But I'm guessing a bit).

    You are correct. AFAIK it's a stitching that secures the top button and is shaped as a V. You can see it on many repro jeans. And as MaxPower said it changed in the 60s-70s on Levi's 501.
    Some brands use it nearly on all of their jeans (check your 710 Flo!)

    I did as i wrote :mrgreen: I recall my Momos and LVC having a V-Stich as well. but then, lately I lose as much braincells as hair, so i might be wrong.

    I have the feeling they fade rather fast from what I remember from my old pair. Denim starts to soften up. I really like the "perfect" inseam length. I really like them (except for the button fly)
