LEVI'S 646 (BIG E)

There are various models of Levi's flare type, but this is one of the representative model number "646". Orange Tab BIG E's. This is one of those orange tabs that shows the characteristics of the time, such as the omission of rivets and coin pockets and the use of light ounce fabric.

The real thing is a little more faded than it looks in the photo, and also has a very bright blue tint to it that stands out. It features a flare that extends from the knees.
The patch is not attached.

The coin pocket is omitted and unriveted.


It is processed by the lock. The hem is single, but I'm not sure if it's original or not, as it was purchased at Eusted.

back pocket (back)

Despite being a BIG E, the back pocket has a chain stitching on the back.


I use a light ounce of it. It's hard to tell from the photo, but this fabric has a relatively noticeable vertical drop.
