  1. Vintage Denim?

    this shop is like a museum: http://www.marvins-jp.com/
  2. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    @jewellben: you can spot them (but not order them now) http://www.levi.com/GB/en_GB/mens-jeans/p/475010168

    lvc definitely bring back the 37s ( you can spot them already on the levi´s webshop) but unfortunately no imbroved style, still they come button fly is oddly short button fly, a problem that many lvc jeans suffer from, on from the 1915s...

    Those were called rust and blue and came in 2003 as LVCs vault piece repro of the season. These are quite nice beacause of the shirt cloth pocket backs which unfortunatelly never had been used for a rigid version of the s501xx. Cloth from old shirts had been used back in the late 40s due to war restrictions to save cotton, it was the time when also metal had been saved for war material, so the 501xx lost it´s cinch, rivets at the watch pocket and and crotch.

    These are late 1990s repros and supposed to be a pair of 1873 waist overalls with patent rivets. .Not historicly correct, since the leather patch should be in the center of the back, right beneath the cinchback. Probably valencia street made - what number does the back of the waist button read? 555!? I love the denim, allthough predistressed. Wonder if this was denim was done be cone or is of japenese origin?

    That´s a decent pair Paul T. Are these the ones you introduced back in 2011 on your loomstate block?
  7. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Today I got the 1880s, my W32 measure 80cm or 31 1/2" and L32 measure 32". They come waist tapered as the 201xx, so you can have a big bum but also taper in leg downwards. Definitely the most difficult fit to combine an wear.
  8. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    you are right cool hand, i have both the current 1915 and the current 1890, the 1915 in W30 measures around 31" and the 1890 in W30 are tts...
  9. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    @cool_hand. i can tell when i have received my pair, which a found at the 50% levi´s sale, at least for w32 l32... also i had seen em in a shop an the looked like beeing true to size, such as the 1915s, 1890s come.

    still think the 44s offer one of the best denim. congrats for that decent fade.
  11. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    the 1955s got the come in the same denim.
  12. Cone Mills (last US denim manufacturer) is shutting down

    @paul T: is the 1920s LVC or original? i adore the vertical structure that overlays the hole jeans. incredible.
  13. Cone Mills (last US denim manufacturer) is shutting down

    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.
  15. Levi's Vintage Clothing

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