I have a pair of Levi's Red jeans. I would like to know what year they were made. A little out of my realm for denim, prefer vintage American work wear. 
WPL-423

Info as it appears on the tag. Made in the Philippines  SKINNY W36 L32 
It's a collection that's made on a limited basis on select years.  All I really know. Thanks for any and all help.

The 0308 signifies March 2008 I believe.

Thanks for the response. I'll have to look at the tag again, I may have mistaken a 6 for an 8. The last time Levi's ran a production of the RED line was 2007, but I may be mistaken about that... I'll have to dig a bit more or swallow my pride and contact Levi's directly.

It may relate to release rather than production date, so potentially produced in 2007 for release as part of a Spring 2008 collection - sounds feasible to me.

^I was all set to say something positive, and then that metallic 1873 mock-turtleneck happened.

However, Red did make a kind of avant-garde version of a 1870s Levis that was quite interesting. It had natural indigo denim of a silvery robins egg hue with a green selvedge id, and the proper features but with exaggerated scale in parts and purposefully erratic stitching. They were quite nice- in a kind of manga version of Levis way.

That sounds like something one of William Gibson's characters would wear!
