    Maynard: I'm out of the loop as I moved out of London just over 2 years ago. I was aware Cinch had closed - went to the Levi's Regent Store expecting LVC would be on sale there (in the basement) - asked where was the LVC and I was informed there was a new store on Marlborough Street. According to this article it opened October 2020: https://www.theindustry.fashion/levis-launches-new-concept-store-in-soho-with-sustainable-denim-range-as-the-focus/ Maybe Cinch closed down shortly after the start of the pandemic?

    Apologies if already mentioned before. LVC has a new home in London Levi's London Haus – 41 Great Marlborough Street. I managed to visit recently and I recommend you check it out!

    I could be wrong but it looks like they've made some improvements to the denim compared to the made in Bulgaria junk from a couple of years ago. The only issue is the MIJ are made TTS on the waist, they've not allowed anything for shrinkage!

    Apart from the Katakana text how do the Limited Japan 501 differ from the standard 1955 Made in Japan? Do they use a different denim? And who is making selvedge now for LVC Japan?

    I thought someone might of posted a review of the 1960s Made in Japan by now. I did have a pair in my cart on the Levis UK Store at launch but before I could say "these will probably be returned" all 3 pairs in my size sold out!

    I stand corrected. They cost more in Japan and the same price as Japan in USA but they are being priced lower here. I made the mistake of looking at made in Bulgaria models sold in Japan for comparison.

    I managed to snag a Cone Denim Made in USA Type 1 a couple of years ago half price. The Store didn't realise what they had and I managed to work out it was most likely a Cone model and not a newly released made in Bulgaria Trash. I got lucky. As I remember the arms were roomy but settled down after it was soaked. I would avoid machine washing - I did mine cold on a delicate cycle but the denim really softened up after that - just soaking retained the deep indigo rigid look which I prefer but it'll get there eventually whatever you do. Your MiJ looks a great repro - looks identical to my made in USA. It's a great fitting jacket.

    MiJ 501Z is listed at £210 - basically the same price as it's sold for in Japan.

    END have a raffle for that ugly long Tyoe II Jacket and a pair of MiJ 501Z 1960's – anyone have any info about these? What's the deal with the MiJ line and why is it being marketed over here?
