No I didn’t, but the back of that tag doesn’t look like any tag I’ve seen before, I suppose that doesn’t mean they didn’t have a tag like that....but out of 400 plus pairs, I haven’t seen it. I’m a little suspicious o that 30x36 deadstock pair.

Edit- I looked at some of my wash tags from this era, yea it looks normal
The number 3 2 after the button number, this Should be March 92
I’ll have to look at more, I thought the month should be 03 for March then one number for the year
Then in 1993? The year gets two numbers- like 93 for 1993.

I’ll look into it.

I've checked, could also be thin oxidisied aluminium. But in general not really great quality.

Did you found something about the retagged '80s 501?

Another question:

The 501 from the late '70s to the very early '80s with the "care instructions inside garment" printed above the 501 on the patch, did they had plastic buttons (front side) on the fly? Got a pair, also Deadstock, everything matches, but I just wondered about this quality.

Thanks for your fast reply. Here are some additional pictures

The details match, so I think, it,s not a fake in general, but at least one thing isn't how it should be. Should there be a chain stitched hem on the '80s 501?

I don’t think I’ve seen this wash tag configuration, the bar tag has 018 for January 1988, the right time to see the 501 in red on the tag, I’ll look at few 90’s deadstock pairs I have, I’ll see if anything else tends out- is the back of the button copper color?
