Tomorrow i'll post my pair and compare the fabrication date/lab.



Strongly disagree with this. When  looking at my different options, this one was the winner because of this stitching detail and no noticeable hole in back of left leg. There is nothing I hate worse than big cheesy holes in my jeans. I have always been one to iron on patches behind distress holes if they are there because I dont want there to ever be a time when my legs are showing through. I think its kind of tacky. The patches behind the distressing was another draw towards this wash or 73j. If they werent there I wouldve added to prevent enlargement. I wouldnt have gone as far as to sew the things on like was done here for fear of ruining the garment but they did a flawless job. I am impressed and the jeans look far better now because of it(nice added detail).

When I said "as is" I wanted to say "with only the iron patches without the stitching". We misunderstood.

i prefer the wash with the stitching. makes it look cool imo.  as u can tell on levi lad's pic they start getting all string-y and gross after theyve been worn a while.

Mine already had the threads cut when I bought them. In fact, the threads are glued or whatever to the iron-on patches, which stops them from... flopping around.

Wow they look really good tapered. I think I definitely should invest in this. I have a good seamstress who could do great work here. You've inspired me once again ;)

I absolutely love the 71j wash.  I have it in zathan, zatiny, larkee, thanaz and safado.  A classic wash you cant

possibly go wrong in!!!

updated fit pic after having the legs taken in below the knee down to the hem (to 7" leg opening): This is more like it. Id like to thank Saddock for the idea BTW
