    Vintage Denim?

    Picked up this Big E shirt today, amazing condition given its probably 50 years old. Too small for me sadly but still couldn't pass it up.

    Did you get them new or used? Don't ever remember seeing them in the UK.

    These are interesting, read about 503B on here but don't think I've seen any for sale before

    The thing is when you look at both jackets the arms look to be similar proportions. However the body is quite a bit longer in the modern remake so the arms are actually far too long. The really annoying thing is I also have a 557 repro and the arms on that are a bit short, if it were possible to average out the arms they'd be perfect

    I rang Rivet and Hide today to ask if they can chainstitch the cuffs to shorten the arms but turns out you need a different machine/attachment for that and they can only do hems. So either try again with hotter water, get them shortened by a standard tailor or just live with it.

    So a hot soak didn’t help with the arms on my 70505. Think I need to get them tailored, looking at the remake the cuffs look to be chainstitched, however I don't think the original was chainstitched?

    Collection just released on their UK website. Hard not to be better than the laughable 90s collection but nothing great again. One nice looking jacket in an on page ad but can't see it for sale? Also notice they now only go up to 36" waist so wouldn't be able to buy any even if I wanted to. Weird that a US brand is doing much more limited sizes than many Japanese brands but I guess LVC is on it's last legs nowadays so maybe makes sense.

    A slightly weird thing is that I can't find anything showing what factory this was made in? Nothing on the buttons and nothing on the inner labels, although there is a tear-off Made in USA tag.

    Need some advice on the new jacket please. Fit is perfect on the body but arms are too long. If I give it a cold soak, then put just the arms in much hotter water for a bit is this likely to shrink the arms a bit and not much body wise or is it going to cause any issues I haven't thought of`? It's still crispy atm but don't mind it being softer.

    Picked up an LVC 70505 0217 from eBay and thought I'd do a couple of comparison pics with my original vintage one. Both labelled as size 46 but the new version is much longer.

    Sorry, could have sworn I replied to this at the time but apparently not. My one is the green version, came ready worn and I've just put a pic in WAYWT.
