Vintage Levis Button Numbers aka Levis Factory Codes

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. In Levis jeans that do have this numbered button you should also find the same number printed or stitched on the inside care label – and if the numbers don’t match, you may have a fake…buyer beware!

Here is a list of the factory codes:
