The 501 after the BIG E is supposed to be slightly tapered, but this one looks like a straight and straight without heart.
CARE stamped, tear-off ticket paper patch
Size and washing instructions are listed. It is also stated that the shrinkage is 8%.
The notation "10 5 2" indicates that it was made at the factory on October 2, 1975.
The back pocket is slightly longer than the BIG E. The arcuate stitching is orange with even sides and a slightly shallow angle.
back pocket (back)
Single stitching behind the back pocket. The red tab is a small "e", which is how the early 66 models are identified.
Small "e" red tabs on both sides, "V" is an uneven V with different thicknesses on the left and right.
The color of the bar tack is black in most of the pre-redline models, but this is an unusual white bar tack.
Plated iron buttons. Parallel stitching on the side of the button. There is a small poke in between the engraved letters on the button.
There are three fly buttons.
The line to the left of the "R" is short, not the so-called foot-long R. As with the top button, there are small pebbles between the engraved letters.

The engraving on the back of the button is "2" as it was on the inner tag. The stitching on the waist belt is a chain stitch.
Copper-plated iron rivets
Aluminum rivet backing
The fabric of the coin pocket is used vertically and the fabric of the other side is used horizontally, and if you put it on, you will get wrinkles like INAZUMA in the coin pocket. The back of the coin pocket has a chain stitching.
Superimposed U-stitching with inseam cannibalization at the crotch.
The red lines have faded and become pink, but there is also a layered blue thread in the selvedge, which at first glance makes them blue selvedge. Blue selvedges seem to be a rare occurrence on the 66 model.
Both the slab and nep feel are not so strong. I don't feel much of a difference compared to the BIG E waist chain.
