Thanks dr h, happy hooligan and sunday.....

Yea HH the white labor thing would probably not go over well today. In 1889 there was a political climate that was hostile towards all the chinese labor in san fran, and i think there was a recession that year too.....around 1885 levi strauss and others in the clothing industry had to testify before the state labor commission about the use of chinese labor, which was cheaper than white labor at the time. So advertizing white labor meant you paid more for the labor and it was seen as a positive thing to do at the time.

Fantastic shots, enjoyed those, thanks for posting.
 
Every one (except you nonriveted Wink) look very serious.
 
Must be a very serious business hunting for vintage denim!

WOW!!
Agree with DD, a plethora of stylish photos indeed - of handsome Lads, and one stylish Lady (love the big cuffs btw).
Looks like a line up from a fifties western.  Especially like the last few with Cory and Mike - they are definately in the fore-running for the next remake of 'The man who shot Liberty Valance' or something similar.  If looks could kill.
 
(Btw - are those ducks that  (sigh..) mr.randall is wearing Lvc? If so, 2000 or 2010?  Please confirm)
 
Awesome stuff - keep it coming!

No it's really not that serious...I seem to remember taking some direction on how we should look in a few of those pics IIRC
