    @hip flare: this is why i usually size down and stretch out the waist with an one hand clamp when wet. this always worked out for me.

    indeed it is to shallow, especially for 1930s repro... unfortunate, for the 37s are the only cinchback pairs you can wear without the fear of scratiching everything you sit on. they should have the rise of the 1944s

    @marble madness i would like to achieve somewhat a double pattern, high contrast fades along with deep combs combined with that marble effect and train tracks. actually i thinks it´s nice to see, that the stereotype of rigid or at least dark denim worn with cuffs in that era, is somewhat questioned here. anyway thank you for your advices!

    just have seen this section of rebel without a cause from 1955 and fell in love that beautiful marble denim of james deans openent corey allen, which look almost likea moon wash pair of the 80s. I wonder if there is a bullet proof method to achieve this effect? probellerbeanies recent shots of his 501s show that just washing doesn´t cause it. on from minute 1 you have a close up of the pair:

    the 1937 201xxs are fiction, for there weren´t 201xxs around in the era of the red tab as far as i know. if someone proofs me being wrong, please post some 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.
