    iconic denim photos

    since autum is around and the thread is asleep: young paul weller shows my favorite style for the colder days, a combination of a nice british tailored herringbone overcoat, probably made by aquascutum or burrberry along with some dark denim.

    hi there, i am pretty sure that the exaggeration of the repro arcuates comes from the photo itself, for the jeans is not shot plain but slighly bulked up which causes that effect by an perspective view. i just wonder why we discuss the authenticity of lvc on such thing such as arcuates, while they even can´t manage to do the right fit / patterns. thinking of '66 and '37 to me the bigger bummer is the extreme short button fly, which never haven been that short expect for sizes smaller than w30. both to me look more like early ugly 00s hip fitting jeans, which is a shame since they could be so nice with a higher front rise / button fly.

    can´t tell exactly, but i have a 32" waist and bought a 30" pair. could imagine they would come up a true 30" after a wash.

    these might be worth a repro: never seen before levi 606 super slims with selvage rather than the double felted outseam. also these don´t feature the orange bar tags at the back pockets yet. Dear LVC, please get em reproduced! https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Vintage-Deadstock-Levis-606-Redline-Big-E-Jeans-1966-Unworn-New-Selvage-NOS/283535757016?hash=item42040c4ed8:g:BFMAAOSwCkldHCwV

    i like these japanese repros for their nice leather patches, which always looked more authentic to me than the ones of US repros.

    The 44 has changed significally throug the years to slim thighs, hence the waist and pelvis part is still comfortable. My two years old pair in size W30 measures 29cm from the crotch to the leg outseam and 22cm across the knee erea. Hope I could help.

    i forget about the `44 which where my alltime favorite before they where redesigned towards slimmer legs and the ´76 joined the line , but still love the high rise(the highest from all non cinch models). The denim was imo one of the best LVC offered. Here a worn in pair from ebay (it´s the current version):

    pretty sure it is, since the 501zxx originally should be a the zipper version of the 55 501xx. lvc uses the same denim for the type II jacket aswell. all three pieces represent 1950s denim.

    currently i´m breaking in a pair of '76, wearing em mostly on weekends for around two years now, with out a wash. also some '55 and '47 is in my rotation. i like the 76 for fit and denim which is greyish, heavy and hairy - the 55 for the hairy and slubby denim - the 47 for the fit . if i had another job i would break in my 1890s and 1880s, but scratching the office furniture isn´t an option.

    i would guess it´s simply wrong listed, since the people from the web store don´t have clue about what they sell it seams. rigid can´t be washed since after a wash it´s not rigid anymore...
