    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    The stitching is black or navy rather than orange and the care tag inside says ‘Levi’s’ rather than ‘LEVI’S’.

    So how many pairs do you have now, eh Broark? Come on, we’re waiting...

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    That’s what other people say about our jeans!

    Time to start a new thread for TCB rather than leave it in the "Unknown Japanese Brands" one as it's very well known now. Post all your TCB non-competition stuff here.

    Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Great group photo Bartles. Which (post-contest) jeans is everyone moving on to next?
  6. Maynard Friedman

    How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    I’d like to see what @Broark‘s latest list looks like.

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    Surprisingly, the Buzz (not worn since last wash) only measures approx 24.5-25” from (bottom of) back of collar to (bottom of) waistband. My size L, non-loopwheel National Athletic Goods double-v sweat measures about 25.5-26”.

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    The older style were definitely boxy, I sold two of those. I wouldn’t describe any of my Deluxeware sweats as long though, if anything perhaps a bit short (size L)!
  9. Perhaps they could articulate their request a bit better?

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    I think the newer Buzz Rickson sweatshirts are cut quite generously. I have one in a size L but probably should have bought an M. Consequently I wear it to slop around home in so it has lots of wear and washes. I can measure the length for you if you like.

    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    These are up for sale as my son wore them just once, at home for 2 hours and has now outgrown them. They are labelled as age 8 but should really be age 10. My son is 11. I’d give them to my 9-yr old daughter but she NEVER wears jeans! I will supply updated photos and measurements but I’m looking for £50 plus postage. These are no longer available and were £90 RRP.

    That’s what zips were invented for

    Hi @kiya, are those MiUSA SC 47s made from Cone denim?

    Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    There are so many incredible looking pairs in this and the results thread that this is going to be very difficult to call. Well done to all involved, you and the TCB 20s have done yourselves proud.

    Stuff you would like to see made

    I think this pair is the closest I’ve seen Flash, although sadly they no longer seem to be available.

    Studio D'artisan

    @Broark, they’re the annual Christmas specials from 2006 I think. Here’s a second-hand pair for sale on eBay, size 36.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Can’t remember exactly but I think it was about £75.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Very nice Paul, I had my (similar) Alfred Sargent Dumfries resoled and heeled through John Rushton a few years back and opted for the commando sole rather than leather.

    Ande Whall Denim

    Same thing!

    Ande Whall Denim

    They look great @FeloniousMonk, what cut are they? I’m not sure but I think that denim might be from Kuroki mills. EDIT: that much fading this summer, wow!

    Ande Whall Denim

    What are the DenimHeads, were they a Special Roll? ShovelHeads perhaps?
  22. Maynard Friedman


    Hopefully we can get @salaami onboard and we’re almost there...
  23. Maynard Friedman


    Have we got 20 yet @aho or are we still at 15? Add me to the list, that makes 16 minimum.

    Pure Blue Japan

    I’d say they’ve faded, get a refund!

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Here are some original 60s jeans from the Levi’s archive, from the book ‘501: The Evolution of the Jean’. It’s not easy to see (due to the resolution of the photo in the book) but the jeans have shallow, asymmetrical arcs, although not as exaggerated as those on the recent LVC 66 model. They may, however, be a basis for that particular aesthetic.
