LEVI'S 502 (BIG E TYPE A, Waist Single, 16 button)

The stitching on the waist belt is single stitching and the V-shaped stitching on the side of the top button. The old fabric is said to have been used and the sewing specifications are different from the usual one with a button back engraving"16". It was already washed, but it seemed to not be worn at all, and it was folded up nicely as if it was ironed. So it may be a dead stock that was washed for Japan and the flasher and guarantee ticket were taken away.

Most of the waist single BIG E's seem to be either double-named or typed, but this one is neither. It's the same stamp as the other 16-button 502.

The back of the button is stamped 16, and the stitching above the waistbelt is a single stitch. Considering the fact that it is not stamped with the alphabet and the stamp on the patch, it may be a relatively late model among the waist single BIG E's.

It is red line, with a relatively red color remaining. The hem is stitched in orange on both the front and back. The seams are out of place and the hem is starting to swell due to the wash being hung over it.

Although the glue has been removed, the slab and nep feel is not so strong. It is not blackened, it is a dark blue without muddiness, and I don't feel any redness yet because it is a one-wash.
