    It was the Union Square store. No great shakes when I visited in 2008, but they did have the old soaking tub (albeit cordoned off for reno), and thanks to a fantastic sales associate, I found a cheap pair of LVC ‘55 that was my gateway into the madness. In 2011 though, the whole basement was set up for vintage clothes, custom/repair shop and a full LVC setup; it was a marvel. No idea what the story is now, eight years later. Frozen in time for me!

    In fairness to Pedro, I’ve wondered myself why these turned out that way. I often, but not always, get visible fading from the button just below the waistband, but for whatever reason, all of them on this one faded through. They’re LVC ‘66 from fall 2011, fit me perfectly after trying them on at a pilgrimage to the SF Levi’s store, and were old school tub soaked to minimize waist shrinkage and wore them hard for a year or so before putting them into the ‘supporting’ rotation, lol. I talked two friends into a competition actually, one with Levi’s Cone made in Mexico selvedge, and the other with regular Levi’s STF. We all tub soaked and met up for brunch until they dried -left blue butt marks in the booths, lol. Theirs have long since been retired -the MiM wore out first, and neither ever looked as good as the LVC. Then again, I’ve been doing this longer and have a lot more jeans to rotate!

    When they fit this good, Pedro, people just can’t keep their hands off your fly.

    LVC 1966 sizing question Looking to replace my LVC 66; which surprisingly turned out to be one of my all time faves. I got the 36x34 in fall 2011 to account for the general LVC oversizing at the time, and they fit absolutely perfect. (I’ll post pics in a bit) Appreciate any insight from anyone with sizing experience on the 66 in last couple years! I’m basically a 36W x 34/36L in most recent LVC raw except the 1947, which I got in a 38W...

    Haven’t done myself before, but will give it a go. Though sounds a little fussy, makes sense after initial shrinkage to get rid of odd wrinkles -even Roy presses the denim when sewing...

    Thanks MPukas! Hear you on the dye loss when turning inside out; has happened to me before. Think I remember you previously saying you’ve also steam ironed flat after to get out random creases?

    Any experience on putting black seed through the dryer? Thinking of sending a pair of Memorial cuts on a wild ride, but wanted to check on others’ experiences. Worrying about shrinkage, I got them raw a size bigger than my R04s (38 vs 36) -which were tight after washing but stretched to fit -but have yet to experience the shrinkage others have on this pair. After a warm soak, a few wears, and a machine wash, they’re still pretty big overall, and after a few more wears, the waist has gotten a little loose. Think the dryer might be helpful, as that has worked on LVC in the past, and have a good inch and a half on inseam, so no worries on length. Concerned though about the effect on the fabric though, as it can be a mixed bag. Appreciate any insight!

    Looking for one last pair of LVC Cone: Does anyone know of a good deal on a raw 66 501 in some combo of a 36-38W/34-36L? Plenty out there at full retail, but that’s just ridiculous. Have been able to find others for at least $100 less at various places, but not this one! Have a well-worn 36x34, so kind of looking to size up if possible to have something slightly different. Appreciate any leads!

    What size are you looking for? I have a Large in perfect shape; just a few wears and one wash. Beautiful shirt, but being honest has always felt a little small, so I reach for it only rarely...

    Thanks Julian - just snagged a pair; have been looking for a backup and this is a ridiculous deal!

    Have had great luck w/ non -LVC Levi’s premium models. Some made in USA selvedge 501s are as nice as LVC. Where are those made? May be the pics, but that sure looks like a leather patch, esp the bottom right corner...
