    You did state you paid $133 on the previous page, how did the price change to under $100? Looking at the fabric I'd be surprised if it shrinks a whole size if it was cold washed. The label on inside states 5% shrinkage. Not sure how you can wear it for years without washing it? It's going to get a bit whiffy.

    It was photographed in natural light today but it was overcast - I think the 1880's natural indigo might 'ping' a little more if it was sunny.

    Did you size up or is that your usual size? Have you washed it or soaked it yet? I'm assuming not from your reply. The shoulder width and sleeve length is the same on the Large. Yes, agree the shoulders are wide but not really enough to completely compensate for the short sleeves. Here are the measurements of the Large: Chest: 24" Shoulders: 20.5" Sleeve: 23.1/4" Depth: 33.5" - (base of back collar to hem). The fabric is superb, I wish it had glass buttons. There was no XL left - price was £99.

    Did anyone pick-up the Sunset Chambray Shirt Rigid (AW17)? Have you washed it or soaked it and how much did it shrink? I received mine today in a size Large - the sleeves are much shorter than I expected: 23.1/4" shoulder too cuff. The swing tags states: Due to the nature of the fabric, it will shrink one whole size if washed. The sleeve length is a concern!

    Busy here today! 1880's just arrived. The size 34/34 measures 16.5" across the waist with Back Rise of 17" - these are too small for me. The 36/34 measure 17 3/4" waist and are similar in all other aspects - these fit better. The seat is noticeable - true anti-fit. I didn't like it at first - less noticeable if you look at the side with the rear pocket, more noticeable when you look at the side sans-pocket. I would expect with some shrinkage the seat will improve. The denim is similar to the 1915s but not as dark, I'd like to see it in natural daylight and will take some comparison photos tomorrow. Unlike the 1915s it has generous pocket bags. Like the Mirror Jeans, it has limited edition number on the inside: XXX/300. The construction is interesting, the small pleats at the back and the way the seams are finished on the inside. I'm not a fan of the patch from this period but it's actually been nicely done and it sits discretely under the cinch. Anyway just initial thoughts, I'll probably be keeping them. There are a few pairs left on the UK website - mine worked out £126 after adding a discount code. Not sure how they got away with selling them for $600 retail in the US? Perhaps I have that wrong?

    I ended up ordering the same as you (2 sizes) and will keep/send back the pair that work/don't work; that's if I like the fit! I'm sold on the natural indigo that's for sure.

    I noticed they are described as anti-fit. I'm trying to find some better fit pictures of the seat. My impression is they have a high rise though - is that correct?

    @Sympathy-For-The-Denim Apparently the 1880s in rigid are TTS so I probably need to size up to a 36. Next question: does anyone know what the shrinkage is like on these? They are described as Non-stretch 8 oz. selvedge denim?
  10. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    @Sympathy-For-The-Denim I have a pair of new (unwashed) 1915 34/34 here and they measure 36" waist so I would not describe as TTS. The 1880's Overalls look like similar denim to the 1915 so if they fit similar I'd be interested to know? Why have you referred to them as 1890s? Typo?

    where can I find measurements for 1880's Overalls Rigid?

    In other news, a luxury brand just dropped a leather jacket inspired by Vladimir Putin.

    Surprised this order was cancelled as it was so early in the week. I made 2 LVC orders on Wednesday/Thursday, both arrived the following day. I kept receiving messages asking me to complete my order in respect of a pair of 76 I'd left in my cart - of course when I tried to order it kept saying my cart was empty! I did contact Levi's to query this and received a response earlier today implying that the item had gone out of stock. I've responded noting that the majority of the LVC stock was pulled off the website after the Black Friday promotion went live and it was now available again (and my item was now back in stock) - I don't expect a satisfactory reply. Levi's do themselves no favours here it's a bad customer experience. So they are TTS. My only concern would be the 33.5" inside leg - might order a 36/36 if I buy a pair.

    Yes I just noticed that! Strange isn't it? Need help finding the perfect pair of jeans? I'm the Levi's StyleBot and I'm here to help.
