  2. Tag size 36. After one hot wash the back rise measures 15.5” and the front rise measures 13.25”. The waist is 18.25” flat across. The rise feels high (and extremely comfortable). Compared to my warehouse 1001xx the rise feels quite a bit deeper. Some detail shots for fun.

  3. I vote for listing brands/models of what you are wearing. Spelling out versus abbreviations can help also. Many times I don't get the shortened names/acronyms. Just my thoughts.

  4. Looking very nice @DC2020 Rockets have been very helpful and chatty. Regarding sizing, they said "501XX(1947) has a front rise of 32cm and a rear rise of 42cm. Our company has made the back rise 1.5-2cm shallower than the 501XX(1947)." So it could be inferred Rockets have tweaked the measurements based on the vintage references they had in hand for fit purposes. Definitely the opposite end of back rise scale to Freewheelers which is markedly high - can't remember if they based theirs on a WW2 original - can anyone recall? Rockets also said they have previously done a 37 model using the same measurements as the WW2. They plan to have a run again. Pics are of their 37s - liking the denim

  5. Hey guys! New here, first post. Wanted to share my 50s that I've been wearing since October 2021. 33 washes, buncha repairs. They're at the stage where the thighs and knees seem to disintegrate more with every wash which doesn't bother me because I love patching them up. Thanks for lookin.

  6. Went ahead and preordered a pair—always wanted to try Ooe and always told myself that I’d wait ‘til they brought the 03 cut back, so…

  8. Would love to help you out but being from the continent isn't probably much of help for you. But I am sure @Flash can lend you his Internet skills I considered them early on but when I saw the measurements and no in-between sizes where available I passed. But still like to them evolve I think the amount of people here that actually handled a WW2 Levi's is pretty small (non-existent?!) so I fear we won't get a final answer. I think many repro brands handled at least one pair before producing their jeans but it also depends on the size they handled and if they did the scale up correctly. Seeing CSF and TCB having really high rises I rather think this is correct and brands offering smaller rises might have tweaked the pattern for a better fit. Or as you said, the variations in original 501 were also so big.

  10. This came up earlier, a very old '1880's era' photograph of some gents who seem to be donning early type one's (??) so thought l'd share. Courtesy of Mushroom vintage. (Sorry my phone does crappy pics so click on it for clearer image)

  12. Another amazing find for Foremost vintage, this pair is identical to the flannel pocket pair in the 501xx book and in the same size and unwashed condition as the pair recently discussed in the Sugar cane thread! Can't believe there's still this stuff like this out there. Edit - after closer inspection it seems these S501XX are the same pair that Sugarcane used as a template for their recent flannel pocket replica.

  13. All good mate... interestingly the Freewheelers WW2 rises work for me - once the jeans drape they're great. Depends what you like or are used to, of course - I'm in the high-rise camp so the Rockets are unlikely for me on that basis only. The lowest rise I have is my Tender 134s which I like wearing beltless for that reason.

  14. Yes mate, the sample pair in the little video on the SC thread is all l've seen. Don't know anything else about them either but would love to know more too. Here's hoping for the more knowledgeable internet peeps to come up with some details for us.

  15. Haha, yes Flash has been a real mate in proxying my last few internet buys from warehouse and CSF but has recently taken a hiatus and is probably more focused on his family/work and where his next tattoo is going(?) and l don't want to hassle the guy (l may still ask him tho) - hey if l like em it may be straightforward to pick up a pair anyway when they're released (?) You said you saw measurements? Any links or help with that. Any photos of details? Thanks man, l know l'm a pain in the arse sometimes And as far as l'm concerned, the best 'proportioned' WW2 Levis s501XX lookalikey l've seen is probably the Freewheelers s601xx or possibly the Bridge of the times WW2 model. To be fair my only experience with original WW2 Levis was a pair l found in London which had been turned into shorts and another time when the local vintage warehouse had started saving denim bits/scraps of hidden rivet levis (c.1992) Thinking back, they were bits of mostly 40's jeans, with 'silver' or dark copper rounded hidden rivets so 46's (?) and wartime bits. Never thought to buy them, they were just piled up in a wooden box on the floor.

  16. Anyone on here that know more about the "slub-yarn" denim Warehouse used for the 1221? I did a short write up on my blog (https://indigoveins.com/warehouse-1221-us-army-denim-pants/) but couldn't find much info about the fabric. Would love to learn more about the fabric!

  17. Fresh hot wash and machine dry. These are my favorite pair of all time I think. These are the Memphis denim 1001… banner denim might be next.

  18. My experience with Full Count (and these are the old pairs with arcs and tabs) is to size down 1” from the size you’d buy in other Japanese brands such as Warehouse, SDA, Sugar Cane, Momotaro. So if you’d usually buy a size 30 then a 29 in Full Count should be good and that’s what all those Internet measurements seem to suggest too.

  19. Latest pickup - Amazing what you can find if you are willing to sift through page after page of trash. Late 60s with the symmetrical V tab. Really nice face to it and plenty of life left. Quite nice, but a bit too small. In between 40 and 42. If anybody has any interest in it, feel free to DM me.

  27. I'm a sucker for Lee denim, so here's my 1960's Lee 191-LB blanket lined jacket. The Talon chain pocket zip is a cool detail I've always liked from these 60's era jackets. My sister re-enforced the sleeve ends and repaired a couple small holes with 60's era denim patches.
