Jeans with a waist measurement of 32-inches to 36-inches, and a length measurement of 30-inches to 32-inches 'are going to be worth the most money.'Thanks to the popularity of the Western movie and stars like John Wayne, blue jeans, which were originally designed as prospectors working britches, have gained the irresistible aura of romance and adventure.
The red tab on a pair of 501s’ right-back pocket is one way of dating a pair of Levi’s.
Western shirts are often characterised by their pearl fastening snaps.
Each garment faithfully reproduces the fits, fabrics and characteristics associated with a specific period in time.
A two pocket small 'e' tab jacket from this period is easily identified because of the single row of stitching adjacent to the bottom button hole.
Big “E” is more valuable with it being the older style.
If you are already familiar with how to identify vintage Levi jeans, then it will come as no surprise to you that many of the same characteristics and terminology is used for jacket identification as well.
Levi branched out in the modern era into many more colors and stonewashes. These are the least popular amongst collectors, but a nice dark denim one still looks good.
