    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    just had another look at those grey jeans I am wearing there, those were Calvin Klein jeans my mam found in the bargain bin at The Big W.. they were only £10! they started out really black, and I remember the tags had something saying that these jeans are "designed to fade fast, and go out looking incredible." so really, you could say those were a first pair of raw denim. for me.. but I washed them probably every week, so no "sick fadez"...apart from the train track selvedge fade. so also my first pair of selvedge jeans. The blue pair I am wearing are Wranglers, those also started as dark wash. fairly good vintage fades on those, from not even trying to go for a "vintage" fade.

    Strange indeed. I had a 1101 in W33 when I was bigger (like 7-10 kg or so) and they worked. Maybe this aboves just shows how much jeans can shrink over their lifetime.

    hello. i have heard people say the threads on Full Count jeans are weak and will loose in a short time. Do you know if the new ones (no-arc, tab) improve on that? i want to buy a pair of new 1101 one wash. and i have a pair of TCB 50s regular, dunno how they compare to new Full Count, since they all use similar fabric. thanks a lot

    ^ the only time b_F where I have a smaller pair than you (33 vs. 34). Pants, that is ;-)

  11. I don’t have a great answer for you there, sadly. My warmest sweaters have been from relatives or thrift stores, with the tags (usually) long gone. I will say that adult wool has often seemed warmer than the lambswool used for the Tender pullover, and that a tighter plain knit (or double-backed knit) seems to hold in heat better than the sort of chunky raspberry knit, even with “only” one layer. On the other end of things, my Pop Punch cardigan is always a lot warmer than I expect it to be.

    Thanks guys! Yeah the 0105 is actually slimmer than I thought. Probably the soft denim that drapes easily.
  13. I guess I should have noted this - as I think it's the case with most sweaters - but yes I'd agree, though I do find it less wind porous than the average sweater I've owned, and with the merino base I mentioned it's got to be fairly intense to be a problem (for me). But you probably don't want any sweater as the outermost in windy/rainy/inclement conditions. That said I'm curious what you find warmer as a single piece.

    The old 0105 is such a good middle ground fit. Mid rise, mid thigh, gentle taper. Looks great!
  15. Strongly agree with Duke’s point re: material and weave. I have the mirror panel pullover, and it’s a long-time favorite, but despite its chunkiness it’s definitely not the warmest sweater I’ve worn, especially in any amount of wind.

    Thought I was the only one here that wears Danners. Might have to break them out again, even though they mostly get used during crappy weather.

    Got it. I'm trying to find out how dumb of an idea it would be to try and purposely get a little shrinkage out of an S26 that fits just a bit big on me. The answer is probably pretty dumb, but still haha
  18. I agree 100%. The base is necessary for the really cold days. I will also say that the warmest I ever feel is with that Tender sweater (because it's two sweaters) I mentioned layered over my merino base layer, haha. That said, I also do have a Peregrine cardigan which takes a solid second place. Michigan is no Arctic Circle but we have some good test days over here. Switching topics - I'm in the spot where I might want to proxy something from Japan which I am usually wont to avoid. I know there's one that advertises themselves on here but if anyone has any personal recs I'd love to hear them, DM if that's more advisable. Specifically there's something from Black Sign that I can't sort out how to get anywhere else.

    I have a Small J58-WS and it fits perfectly inside my Small J1B-GT. I would imagine it's the same.

    Is a medium J58 meant to fit inside a medium J1A? The chest width for J58 is 61cm while the J1A is 60cm, according to the mothersite.

    nice pair, mate!
  25. Im all for layering. I’ve yet to find one single layer that will keep me super warm on low 30s F days. I tends to wear 4 layers usually for working outside in these freezing and snowy temps. This allows me to shed layers as needed.
