Dating vintage leather jackets
I’ve lovingly and carefully restored many of the images that I’ve used here and I’ve done that to share these with other spanking enthusiasts so I have no desire to take this site down.Besides, I still have many more images in my personal archive so eventually I’ll share more in the future.We invite you to take a walk down memory lane of the history of the 501, from its inception through every major variation, all the way to its current form today. I mean, it doesn’t actually – but for the sake of dating your 501’s a decipherable Two Horse brand patch will tell you a lot about when your 501’s were produced.The Two Horse brand patch was implemented in 1886, sixteen years after Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis patented the copper-riveted If you’re lucky enough (or just willing to spend the amount of money) to acquire a deadstock (old and unworn) or near mint condition pair of 501’s with the Two Horse brand patch still intact, you’ll be able to identify it from examples on the internet of almost every patch that was ever issued.The oldest non-selvedge 501s made use of a copper-orange overlock stitch, which was subsequently replaced with a white overlock stitch which was then custom up until 1993.If your non-selvedge 501’s have an orange overlock stitch, they’ll likely have been produced between 1981-84.Most people carry their smartphones with them when they go vintage shopping anyway, and assuming you don’t have the interest or the photographic memory to store every single Two Horse patch inside your head you can always look it up.However, using The Two Horse brand patch to date your 501’s will seldom be relevant as most vintage jeans are worn and washed countless times which in most cases have resulted in the patch having come off or simply being undecipherable.
It’s safe to assume that today, nearly twenty years later, this value would have almost doubled.It does help that the recent developments in my live have been especially fun and fulfilling.Even if the updates are few and far between, the archives are here for others to enjoy.If they have a white overlock, please proceed to 1b.
If they do, they were most likely produced between 1983-86.
I do believe that spankee is doing the classic trying to “swim” away from her spanking technique. It’s been a busy year with lots of changes all for the good so I’ve neglected this site for my private life.
