I am not a expert of Turkey Red but should be. I grabbed this from wikipedia "Turkey red used the root of the rubia plant as the colorant, but the process was long and complicated, involving multiple soaking of the fabrics in lye, olive oil, sheep's dung, and other ingredients"

Regarding the pocket bags, US LVC has a tendency to have shallow pocket bags on pre ‘30s jeans too.

Sansome-do actual older Levi’s have particularly shallow pocket bags?


I think we talked about this, some years back, I had a 1890 LVC jean with miniature pocket openings and pocket bags-
Nothing 1800’s or turn of the century have anything like that, all have normal size openings and pocket bags- some of Levi’s competitors had small openings....Those were usually mid 1870’s.

One time, I found a mid 1880’s dart stitch pant, it had 4 front pockets, 2 on each side, both sides had one massive pocket bag, at least a foot long, what the idea behind that is anyone’s guess?

Thanks! Picked them up from yahoo auctions right after you posted about them in the LVCJ thread, haha. A pretty much new one was staring me in the face in my size, and at a decent price. Despite being a fairly wide legged jean (at least for me), they fit really well around the seat. The denim has a really soft hand, it's quite comfortable to wear. One thing that surprised me is that the pocket bags feel a bit shallow, but otherwise it's fantastic

Bandit, I've seen the descriptor Turkey Red many times in connection to bandanas, and should know what it means, but honestly I don't. Could you explain?
