    Maybe I'll stick with a second pair of '55s and just taper the leg a little. Get a button fly and keep the legendary denim.

    Yeah, might well do that. Though I'm tempted by a 54 for a slightly narrower fit, if I can put u with the zip.... Is it pretty much the same denim?

    Actually scrub that. I now I'm not quite at my fighting weight at the moment, but the 30" pair are snug in the waist and that's before a soak... They may have to go back

    So look what came today... '55s in a 30 and 31 waist. Not as massive as I had thought. Here compared with 1915s well worn, 1947 soaked but unworn then the 31 waist then the 30 waist. Not sure which will give the best fit.... May have to keep em both....

    Quick noob question with regards to LVC sizing. Does anyone know if the 55s on the levi europe site are over sized compared with other models? I am have had 32 waist in 47s, 33s and 01s but was a 30 waist in the 17s. So go for a 32 0r 30 in the 55s?

    Thanks Maynard! Yes, chainstitched the hem. I have a union special 43200g in the basement! Don't get much use for it these days as a few of the denim shops in London have them now, but back in the day I was I think the first to have one in the UK. Here's the jacket

    @MJF9 those are before and after pics! They haven't changed much as was only a very mild wash. Though in the flesh the fades are brighter. They look a lot less green and grubby. And they don't smell of sweat and smoke!

    Update on my Mustangs. Up to now these have only had a soak and then a hand wash, however after a few camping trips and some rolling around bu the fire over the summer they are ready for an actual machine wash! Only a delicates wash on 30 but was still a little nervous. Before and after pics. Oh and these are the same denim as Andi was making his jackets from

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    Ande Whall's take on the type 2...ok it's a pretty loose take and not to everyone's taste but I love it. This is pretty well worn in after about three years. Lots of life left but I will start to think about what to replace it with at some point soonish. Welcome to suggestions...
