    Thanks, @propellerbeanie If my mine shrink in line with yours they should be okay.

    How much did people's 66s shrink? I got the same size as my 76s however I'm finding the waist feels a little smaller. Worried that I should have sized up one.

    Just my opinion but if I'm paying $1k for a jacket I want to be able to zip it all the way up!

    @mememessenger Thanks for the heads up. Do you have a size chart of how they fit? Im a 36 chest, thinking I would need a small?

    Some iPhone photos of my 76s in daylight. One initial hot soak, one 30 degrees wash after about one month of wear.

    Always regret not getting one of their outdoor vests in the brown canvas

    Spoke to a Levis rep the other day and he said that there would be two more seasons of Cone Denim in the lineup. He wasn't sure what they were going to do after all that though.

    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

    @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?
  11. 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.
