    Agree with @propellerbeanie After a hot soak it seems to bring the hairiness out. im trying to decide wether to double down on the 76s after news of cone mills. Not sure if the wallet or girlfriend would like that though
  2. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    @Niro Yeah, I would say that next season would be the last if not this season. There might be stockpiles somewhere though. Not sure what LVC will do though? half the selling point to me is made in USA with Cone Denim otherwise what are you paying for really?

    I was thinking the same thing?! Also whats the future for brands like Railcar, Tellason and Rogue Territory isn't all their denim cone mills? I would have thought they might band together and try to buy it. Unless the equity fund wants the actual land that cone mills are on?
  4. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I never knew you were from Melbourne?! @propellerbeanie You think they will actually get that import tax change through? Seems very unpopular, not to mention extremely hard to enforce. Here in Sydney, we had two denim shops close. Great Southern Deim and New Vintage. So not sure how popular the whole heritage/denim thing is here. Globally it does seem that there is an oversaturation of brands and shops.

    I went true to size. However, this is the first pair of levis 501s I've had in years. After one hot soak, they have shrunk around .5" in the waist but stretched back out again. I can tell you more after the first machine wash. @propellerbeanie might be able to help more.

    These are my 76s that I copped a few weeks back. One hot soak and three or four weeks wear. MIght still be available on the US Levis site depending on where you live.

    Some iphone fit pic of my 76s. I'll take some close-ups when there is some evolution to show.
  8. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    I copped them from END. I think that they were the last pair of 66s on the site.
  9. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    One hot soak and a few weeks of wear, so no major evolution yet. But I'm really digging the fit. I wanted an almost high water inseam and a jean I could wear without a belt for summer. So they ticked both those boxes. I'll get around to posting some pics soon hopefully.

    Nice review @free2hear I copped a pair of 66s on sale. The price was just too good to pass up. I haven't worn them yet as I'm still working on my 76s
  11. coffee anyone?

    Damn that sucks, Nestle is such an evil corporation, Blue Bottle seemed a great independent company.
  12. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Wow @Broark nice score! Shame the AUS Levis site has no LVC on it

    Generally speaking, it usually takes 2-3 machine washes to get all the shrink out if you haven't hot soaked them before.
  14. haha okay, I stand corrected. That's the way it was always explained to me. Good to learn new things thanks @beautiful_FrEaK
  15. Basically yes, the threads swell up with the water content and retain some of it, so thus it becomes heavier. I've never really noticed the difference myself even though I'm aware that it happens.
