The 302 is an unfamiliar lot number, but this is the boys' model after the transition to the Big E model.After the transition from XX to BIG E, 27" and above will be 501, and 26" and below will be given a part number of 300 as a boy's size.This is a 26 inch boys size zipper type, and the part number is now 302 instead of 502, and it has snap buttons and other features that are clearly aimed at children, but the fabric and other specifications are the same as the 501 series. This one is a Type "A" above the lot number on the paper patch.

Some of you may notice it from the picture, but the guarantee ticket is one size smaller than the 501 etc. Also, the paper patches are shorter in vertical length.
The silhouette is slender compared to the 501 strain. Also, her hip size is much smaller.

It's shorter vertically than the 501 and others." The "12" seems to indicate the age. The notation of "100% COTTON", "MADE IN U.S.A.", and "WRL 423" is no different from 501 and so on, though the position is different.


It is the one of C1966 and is not different from other BIG E's.

The size of the flasher is the same as that of the 501. . The content was almost the same as the 501, but the position of "MARCA REG." at the bottom right was different, and "J 503" was changed from "J 501" in the 501.

Maybe it's because of my small hip size, but it's also sideways. The arcuate stitching is uneven to the left and right, with a fine orange stitch.

In the double-sided tabs, the left and right widths of the "V" are the same even V.

The color of the snap button is silver, which might be in line with 501. The button surface has five rounds. From the fact that it has a magnet on it, the material seems to be also plated iron. The engraving is "LEVI STRAUSS & CO S.F. CAL", which is the same as the 501 system. It is also a parallel stitch.


Talon 42 has been used.

It is unclear whether this means that the model was manufactured at a different factory from the 501 or not, or whether it is not a factory number.


Even though this is a boy's model, the rivets are not omitted. The rivets are copper-plated iron rivets, unchanged from those used on the 501 system.

The ears are red, but the red color has mostly disappeared. The length is 32 inches and the actual size is 30.5inch(77 cm), and based on the atmosphere of the thread and the appropriate finish, the hem is probably original, but it is stitched with a single stitch. It's possible that the manufacturing plant and process was different from that of 501 etc.
