    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Some will be fine half size down on the 60's, especially if they have a bit of room on their regular Chucks/70's Think I just put comfort first these days. Also I tend to wear sneakers all year round so need to be able to wear with chunkier socks.

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    They run a little bit bigger than the Chuck 70's and have a wider toe box. I find them more comfortable than the 70's. I'm a 10 in Vans and got a 10 in the 60's and they're fine, fit almost like a 10.25 :-) I've found my recent 70's barely a 10, fine for summer with thin socks but I would probably need to size up in the 70's to 10.5 for non summer.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Have had many jeans over the years but I'll always have a soft spot for the early Valencia Street 555 stuff. What followed I thought was never quite the same in look and feel. I still remember being excited popping down to London's American Classics on the Kings Rd to pick up my first pair of 55's. Used and abused several pairs in the late 90's early 00's. Thankfully I've managed to pick up 3 pairs over the last 10 years at decent prices which I wear very sparingly as replacing them would be difficult and expensive. The 55's fit spot on. The 47's needed a hot wash and a blast in the tumble dryer. The 44's need a belt but I prefer them slightly relaxed. Have some great other Japanese jeans that tick all the boxes but my 555 55's,44's & 47's will always be special to me.....
