    Cooked the patch on my WW2's after a boil wash. Don't mind one bit, looks authentic and helps pull the waistband in a bit too help fit wise. Much like a buckleback, but made of leather.

    ^WTF !! The average UK salary is £36,000 !!?!! Only just scraped through the 20,000k barrier a few years ago and l thought l was doing ok. Ah well, lucky to have a job at all, let alone a car (insert Monty python's Yorkshiremen sketch) at the moment during these uncertain times.

    It was an incredibly easy separation, l must say but glad you decided to part ways. Gonna have them hemmed at some point down the road as l have too many jeans that l have to cuff and like to mix it up a bit sometimes. I think a 37" waist would be the sweet spot for me but then l probably wouldn't be able to put my hands in my front pockets so....

  11. No pics but, didn't Lvc do a collaboration with Visvim on an early 1900's open front jumper or something akin to a 213 jacket but looked more like a chore coat? Anyone?

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Not sure about the 201, l know it was originally made from Japanese denim (on the 1999 and 2005 models) - Paul T would probably be your best bet to ask. The 701xx are a ladies cut version of the the 501xx but made with soft, sanforized denim that (obvs) doesn't shrink. Think they have only been made in a couple of random seasons.

    They had a card patch, it was awful imo so l removed it. Also a tab, think it was dark blue, also removed. No hidden rivets and lf there was a white wash tag, again it was removed. Actually couldn't find evidence of a tab so scratch that.

    Thanks Neal. Sorry seemed to have neg repped you by accident when l was going for the rarely used, super rep. My old moderator self just wont die! Anyhoot., long story short, l got them for around 90 quid ds from 1994(?) reworked the arcs, had them hemmed at Soas and went walling for 3 months (under Dickies waterproof trousers). Think l got these just after my last lvc disappointment threw me off the brand. Also discovered the SC47's with arcs around the same time. They are now my garden/yard jean down here in the Cap.

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    Think l've plateaued too mate, especially now as l've got a replacement pair of WW2 CSF to complete the (alternative) tux (again). Got a good sized collection of Levis-inspired wearables from different brands, enough to easily last a lifetime. Not the VW scene, but l was into the 2CV owners scene for many years (my sister went over to the Morris minor community for her fix) and these both fell victim to the wealthy few outpricing us regular earners. On the plus side, l still have a pair of NOS Levis from 1978 in a 'golden size' that are worth around 2k in today's market so every cloud, eh?

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    Twice l was going to leave Denimbro for good, mostly because l'm into original vintage denim and most people come to forums to discuss and buy new denim. So l was getting bored and frustrated. First time l was saved by the Bootleggers 47 tour (2014?) thanks to Duke, and the second time it was because of CSF (2016?) so thanks to you and Flash. (Also l may add this is when l joined Instagram and saw for the first time, new/unseen Japanese collectors denim pieces. Combine that with the release of the 501XX book and 'voila!' .... my vintage addiction was reignited.

    Is that a quote from Denimbro? Hey l'm not chasing the dragon. I could quote you dozens more times over the decades when l've said no when l mean yes

    All the pairs obviously. For me, it's all about the journey.

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    ^^ Sad thing is, if l saved up all the money l'd spent on repros and originals in the last 35 years, l could have just walked in to Marvins and picked up the real deal by now!

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    The lottery pocket fabric is a genius idea.

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    ^Well with all the line production at Tcb and Warehouse they still make lazer clean, equa-parallel stitching and proportionately identical pocket templates, whereas this one man band has (so far) continued to put in quirks which haven't as yet been truely replicated by other companies with those production lines. Hey Volvo, if l hadn't already remortgaged the house to buy my conners l would have jumped on this Tcb contest. But alas l am a sad, vintage Levis obsessed man, l have too many jeans and l have already gone down too many rabbit holes and wasted vast sums of money that could've been spent better elsewhere. So I'll stick with what l have for now...
