Yes the 503 thing is a style of jeans called Edwin.
I didn't like this episode very much, but I can't pinpoint exactly why. It had all it required, but I really don't like how they've altered scenes and removed even the slightest moment of humour. Although Ed spends a lot of this episode feeling guilty about Hughes death, there isn't the scene with him kicking himself for leaving the paper out for Winry to see it. I hate to bring it up...but it's almost taking away scenes that I think are vital to their relationship. Winry doesn't display her tears as much in the manga, and Ed takes a slice of pie as his way of awkwardly comforting her...and they changed it. Rant over...for now.
The rest of the episode was okay though, if perhaps a little slow paced. I know it's more of a filler/build up episode and we've had some good action so in the grand scheme of things it's okay. I think Hawkeye looked a little too wide eyed though, too child like.
