    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?

    many thanks lance, great to finally see em in a shop, though 280 stirling is beyond my price range.

    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.

    @free2hear :the 44s have even a higher rise than the 1915... since you wear w30 within the 47s you should at least go with a W28 or for the 44s. can´t tell how the current 33s fit, but removing of the cinch and suspender buttons would be authentic but be aware that the rivets will scratch everything you sit on, unless you wear me pulled high on the waist. this is why i never can wear my pre 37s to work.

    @free2hear, over the years I had a few of the 1944s since it was my favorite a long time. so the current version still seems to run bigger than all the otherlvc´s, I bought W30 and they fit like a ‘47 in W32(wich are true to size), but only waist-wise. what i like about them is the super high waist. the 47s got a tapered waist so are full at legs and bum while being snug at the waist, the 44s come straighter (hip-waist ratio) and fit better if you don´t have a full bottom. the denim used is still the same and will age beautiful.

    this online shop got a lot of rigid lvcs (1890,1915, 1933, 1966, 1967) for 138,-€ in sale. grabbed myself some nice rigid 44s www.sivasdescalzo.com

    since the photograph was shot 1955, go for the 55s and size down one size.

    maybe you could shrink em by constant washing, like every three weeks with 60 degrees celsius. but if you want to wear many month without a wash you can forget about it. but fit is allright for my taste... got myself a pair few weeks ago and wear em a lot looser like the pair i had before.

    pretty sure the first pair is from 2013 (cw-4213), the 2nd could be from 2010 (3610).

    @shovett: This is what I guess we are all through. Sorry for you that the shop assistant had been without a clue. Your jeans will always stretch back to the waist size they had when been rigid, often they will become even wider with wear. The conlclusion would be to either buy em fitted when raw or even size down 1" , but that depends on how you like to wear em. I have the same issues with the current 47s quite snug at the waist, but full at bum and legs(seems LVC had altered the hole fit to a more straight rather than a slim fit, which is more accurate though.)

    hanon got the cheapest price of all retailers i know: http://www.hanon-shop.com/c/q/levi's-vintage

    if we could afford it. since it comes in natural indigo i could imagine they will ask as much as for the mirror jeans. but really nice details, such as the darts at the yoke that never had been featured on any non duck repro of levi´s, as far as I know. also i am happy they could finally manage to attach the braces buttons to the right place, a little detail that is unfortunatel messed up at the 1890s end even worst at the 1915. sometime i wonder, what it makes so difficult to such things the right way.

    Welcome to the club free2hear, and thanks for your kind introduction. Finding a good fitting pair of LVC´s online will always be a hassle. Look at the two pairs of your link, both were known to run bigger in waist than the label would tell, but the current issues(the 1915 from your link) fit true to size, the current 1890 (the one in your link shows the older version) also fits true to size. If you are still looking for an 80s fit I would recommend the 1978 which feature the same details and denim like the 1976(which I love) but run a bit slimmer and come up with shorter rise though. But in general you can say that all RIGID LVCs of current production run true to size. You can easily identify them on the horizontal retangular cardboard label(not speaking of the leather like) at the waist of the pairs: http://www.hanon-shop.com/i/q/264080000/levis-vintage-1976-501-jeans best
