Vintage Levis Button Numbers

Have you ever noticed a number written on the reverse of the top button on your vintage Levis jeans and wondered what it means? Well we have, so a long time ago we did some research and the answer is, this number refers to the factory where the jeans were made. Not all Levis Jeans will have this number – and jeans that do should have the same number printed or stitched on the inside care label. NB: If the numbers don’t match, you may have a fake…buyer beware!

Here is a list of the factory codes:
