    Is this a Japan only release? It says it's made from Cone denim.

    can anyone shed any light on these 1947 codes: 47501 0167 47501 0117 both are Rigid made in USA - are their any differences between the jeans?

    The colour and quality of the Sunset Chambray is very nice but I've always found the sleeves to short. An earlier version of the shirt was made in USA.

    If you're considering ordering either 1890s or 1976 be warned they come up short in the length - a 34 is 33 and a 36 is 35. Denim is meh , reminds of when Levi's did 10th anniversary reissue of the Levi's Red 1st Comfort jean and the denim was a shadow of the original.

    when I ordered my Triple Pleat I checked the product code number on Levi's UK and it stated Style # 264080000 This is the correct code for the Cone version - they are also using the original Cone denim version product shots, however what I've received is made in Turkey. Went and checked the code and it appears to have been updated to 264080010 - that or I'm going mad! Also ordered the 1890's on the off-chance they were still old stock - nope - made in Bulgaria. Overall quality on these garments is poor - buttons are already falling off the jacket and I haven't even tried it on. RIP LVC.

    Thanks. Note sure how tall you are but from that info I'm guessing the Cone lost 4" and the new denim lost 2".

    Paul, I don't believe the actual jeans you will receive will look like that earlier pic. If you go onto the website someone who purchased the 1937s has posted a picture of the jeans they received and they don't have that problem with the arcuates. I might be reading this wrong but it appears Jimmy returned his 1937s - just wondering why?

    what specifically sucked on the new 1936? I've ordered the 1976 in the new denim today in both a 34 and 36 leg - if I like the denim I will probably keep the 36 based on your shrinkage.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    Just received up a Full Count collaboration 1940's style Jacket in 13 oz Selvedge Denim - is this Full Count's standard denim? I've now noticed the description for the product reads "Sanforized denim, will reduce shrinkage and twisting after washing" - wasn't aware Full Count made sanforized denim. Any ideas how it might shrink? The care label states 5% which doesn't make sense if it's sanforized. Perplexed.

    How many inches did the your 1976s shrink in the length?

    Jimmy, are these in the new denim or Cone? For all those wondering how the 1937s look in the new denim END have a bunch of product shots: https://www.endclothing.com/gb/levi-s-vintage-clothing-1937-501-jean-37501-0015.html levi.com pretty much sold out in main sizes in the 1937 now.

    No, they def. didn't produce the TPB in natural indigo.

    It was a shame they didn't make an edition of the Triple Pleat Blouse in the Natural Indigo - could of been amazing!!

    Correct. Back story: https://www.levistrauss.com/2017/09/22/eureka-levis-vintage-clothing-fall-collection-goes-old-west/ “We took the original 1880s xx waist overall to North Carolina where the Cone Mills team studied the yarn count and slub patterns to reproduce the original cloth. The yarns are dyed using natural indigo grown by Stony Creek Colors of Nashville, Tennessee, and the fabric is loom state and has zero treatment after it comes from the loom,” Paul said. The ‘run of the mill’ terms means the fabric is not graded and inspected as thoroughly as today and holds some imperfections that represent the original denim and how it was produced 140 years ago.
