The side whiskers and the uneven whiskers of the thighs, which were in vogue at the time, were "genuinely punctured" without washing. I'm going to miss it when it's well done, but I'm going to choose an outfit to go with it.
"Hachinosu" on the back of the knee is also coming out.
Compared to previous ones, the paper is shiny and has a firmer patch to it. Even though I actually wore them hard, they didn't break, but they didn't tear. The tear-off tag was not originally attached.
This tag is often seen on Levi's Japan products.
Made in June 2001. Factory number is 553.
The shape appears to be longer in the width than in the length. The arcuate stitch is nicely balanced on the left and right.
In the small e double-sided embroidery tab, the "V" is an unequal V.
The color of the cane is orange on the front, but when viewed from the back, it is decorated with white thread.
The top button is the same as the others at the same time. Next to the top button, parallel stitching.
It's 29 inches, but it has three fly buttons.
Button that is not a foot-long R with a pitter-patter. This is no different from the earlier and later models.

It is hard to tell from the photo, but there is an engraving "553". It can be seen that they were manufactured at plants other than the El Paso ("524") and Valencia ("555") plants.
Copper-plated iron rivets. It's no different from the later models.
It has been changed to a copper-plated iron rivet backing like the one made in Mexico.
Side split stitching with a white thread lock. The hem is hemmed in a single stitch.
The part near the hem that has the most color remaining. The color is also different from the 80's, slightly reddish, and seems to be closer to the color of the pre-Big E's.
The part of the knee that is most faded. Some longitudinal drops in places.
