How can tell if these Levis are men's or women's?

Hello! I read online that you can tell from the facing of the zipper fly, but when I look at other sales on eBay the flys for Levis are pointing in either directions for men's and women's. The original Levis tag is sewn into the back but there are no other tags. They look to me like women's but I think they are from the 80's, and men's pants were tapered back then too. They are Levis 550's, size 33x34. Thank you for any assistance :-)

Late 80's early 90's. They are mens. Women's 550's made back then did not use waist/inseam measurements. The back tag where the W/L is would have only been stamped S ( short inseam ) M (medium inseam) or  L ( long inseam) and the inside tag would have had the size on it.

I should also note the 550 denotes a relaxed fit tapered leg.
