From the mid-1930s, some denim companies attached a red tab in order to be different from others. The red tab installation began around 1935-36. The position of the tab is slightly higher. Exposed rivets have the drawback of damaging objects in work, so they hide the back pockets rivets by covering them with denim fabric.
The different specifications were introduced from 1935, and it seems to have been completely established in 1937. "CONCEALED RIVET", the so-called hidden rivet, was established. It is believed that the XX was followed by a C in the early days.
In addition, the hidden rivet uses a single claw. There are no suspender buttons, but the cinch back is a remaining detail. A thin layer of anti-rust is applied to the surface of all buttons. The curve of the front pocket opening is slightly larger, and the coin pocket is also slightly larger. There is another rivet on the crotch part.
The side seam stitching is a unique detail with different stitches, they used lock stitches and chain stitches together. (See inside.)
The fabric uses the original 14 oz indigo denim.
Compared to the classic 1947 model 601XX, this indigo denim is darker and reddish.
There are many many small details made these jeans a piece of art!! Try them, you won't be disappointed.
