    @paul T: is the 1920s LVC or original? i adore the vertical structure that overlays the hole jeans. incredible.

    just another fine example how beautifully cone denim wears in, if you are patient. this is 1955 501xx from around 5-10 years ago that is recently up sale at ebay(not my pair) a

    I am sure they did it for their orange tab line.
  5. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    they also come in strange colours such as red, green and tourquis,all rigid btw. but the denim looks interesting.

    @spiraltoy: maybe it was just a sample. also i remember 1947 special edition as part of the standart line, these had the same cut as the lvc version but came with a little e tab. i don´t know if the came with selvedge though.

    @beautiful_FrEaK my '76 really came on the shorter size, so L32 was actually around L31. the waist was true to stated size.
  10. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    lvc states 12oz for the '76 in their lookbook. but it actually feels thicker.
  11. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    yes, the come true to size and will stretch out around one inch after weeks of wear. best for winter since the '76s come with the heaviest denim of the lvc line.

    thanks for sharing, nice to see they will evolve a fair leg twist. but do yourself a favour, take hammer and flatten the rivets. i wonder about the dark colour of the rivets here!?

    ecsong187, do you mean the slighty green casted denim, which is also used for the current triple pleated blouse? how you know that natural indigo is used for this denim?
  14. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    many thanks lance, great to finally see em in a shop, though 280 stirling is beyond my price range.
  15. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    maybe Paul T, you know something about the rigid 1880s natural indigo and when they will be in stores? i just wonder since they are represented at fw2017 lookbook and also on instagram... look so promising. @1890s the current production run is true to size, if not slightly smaller (and smaller than all other W30s of then current lvc run, not unlike the 1937s 201xx), these where the only LVC in W30 (apart from 201xx) that I couldn´t wear just right from the start.
