    Anyone put vinegar on their chips? That’s nice. Highly recommended.

    Quality video. And perhaps the greatest mispost ever. I’m not sure which I enjoyed more.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Found my old Levi’s. The rise (from crotch seam) on the 54 is 10” and is consistently 11” across 3 pairs of 47s. All are 30 waist. The back rise is higher at 15.5” in the 54 vs 14” - 14.5” in the 47s. Appreciate this is repeating kicks79 but may be helpful. The seat feels more roomy in the 54 despite the lower rise, perhaps due to higher back rise and slightly larger waist of half an inch. Edit: Brucey bonus pic after measuring. Top to bottom : 47, 54 & 47. Excuse various table legs, limited space in loft.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Nothing too fancy here folks, but wanted to share a positive experience with getting my RW 2968 reheeled in the UK. Sent them off to The Boot Repair Co - http://www.bootrepaircompany.co.uk/ Very quick turnaround of about a week and a quality like for like replacement. Recommended.

    It would be boring if it was straightforward! I’ve just been up the loft to take measurements for you but I can’t find my stash of jeans. Bit worrying as a couple of things went missing in my move last year including an office chair. How the f**k do you lose an office chair... Sorry the info is inconsistent, but I do recall the 47 rise being lower. My 47s and 54s were bought from different seasons so that could explain it. I seem to recall cultizm has pretty decent measurement guides you could compare.

    Interest check: Denimbridge contest

    If I’m looking at Shingo’s measuring page correctly it looks like he doesn’t go from the crotch seam (which is what I’m used to) but rather from where the denim starts just under the seam, if that makes sense. Either way I’m in. I’m assuming these will stretch a bit after washing.

    @mpukas I have the 54s in a 30/34. Let me know if you want me to post measurements. They no longer fit me as it’s been some time since I’ve fitted a 30 waist! They are slim, but agree with kicks, the rise is higher and seat more forgiving than a 47.

    Correct! They are definitely feathers.

    The 66 in those pictures don’t look like they’ve been near water.

    Levi's RED

    I remember Levi’s Red fondly. I was slightly astonished that something so forward-looking and unconventional were sold alongside LVC at Cinch. Unfortunately I always thought the fits were just too out-there for me to pull off so never bought a pair, but my favourite t shirt I have ever owned is Levi’s Red one. It looks like more of a rag than a t shirt now, and I only wear it a couple of times a year as it’s very near the end of its natural life. The fit is reminiscent of a 30s LVC tee with its short sleeves, and I always thought the chest pocket was a nod to a 50s tee, but it being Levi’s Red it’s asymmetrical. Apart from the fit my favourite touch is the barely visible leaves on the back. Bought around 2002.
  15. I guess you're referring to some of the recent posts in the TCB contest thread. Something I’ve always enjoyed about the contest and tour threads is the insight they give into forum users lives, other interests, trips, etc and I personally welcome these little digressions. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I for one don’t mind. Peace.
