    Its interesting that their size guides suggest otherwise - the 1109 has the same hem as a 1108 but slimmer knees and thighs #bootcut. The 1110 have a high rise and wider thighs than a 1108 but from the knee down they are a very aggressive taper I had to peel mine off after every wear. tigerstrom 1101 look great but again the okayama sizing suggest these are slimmer than a 1108 and I find the thigh on these too tight in my usual 34 waist (don't know why this is bold text sorry all)

    the 37 will not be made available in 36 leg unfortunatley as Levis are saving the cone denim according to LVC London

    I found the latest 33 not to shrink so much in the leg too as they used to shrink loads in a 36 leg. Mine are super soft too (bit too much TBH)

    i'm keen to see your post wash measurements as these do look oversized on the measurements i've seen pre wash online.

    i prefer to call mine "athletic thighs" have same challenge. I was focusing on the knee down profile

    right silly question time apologies in advance - anyone know from experience how much if any the hem on a 44 and the latest 37 will shrink with a good hot soak/wash? I've not worn jeans this wide for a while and they are both currently 9" in their raw state

    Its quite rare I need to hem even on a 36" leg but on the few times I have thankfully the Levis store on Regent St London provides chain stitching for free if you time it right. I've also used Rivet & Hide and Son of a Stag for non LVC

    I bought some 54 new rinse from Cinch on Monday (Waiting for them to be hemmed as the 32" leg is TTS and I need 33") The denim is cone but they are made in Turkey, I went for these as a change from raw to remove the risk of thighs being too tight post washing like my raw have gone and the denim is quite hairy. I also found out why the 37 are not available in 36" leg and its due to limited amount of remaining cone denim so LVC decided to not waist on longer leg lengths I was informed.

    Does anyone have any info on the current inside leg shrinking on the 54 or 37 LVC? My last 54 from 2014 lost about 2" max but previous ones have lost more. Thanks in advance

    With regret I've sold my 1108ex 25th anniversary edition as the thigh is too tight for me should have bought a 35"
