    That is how high-waisted Levis were worn in the 1980s when they were particularly popular. Obviously the 1933s weren't around then.

    My 1933s are really comfortable after 4 x 40C machine washes and the 36 leg has held up nicely.

    I have looked for some 1937s w32 L36 but only 34 leg is available at the moment. Anybody know why? They are 1oz heavier (@12oz) so far as I can see so may be a little less soft @jewellben

    Well after 3 40C washes, I'm pleased to report that these 1933s have turned into a comfortable and soft pair of snug jeans, which is how I like them and the L36 is well down on my shoes unlike the first editions of 1933s when they were half way up my ankle! I just wish they had done W31 or W32 L36 in the 1st editions of these. I have received no adverse comments or criticisms and the thighs are fine. I don't wear them with a belt.

    @428CJ Thanks and it is good to know that you also like tight jeans. As I said in my 24th August post 'Not how they are intended to be worn, but so what?' I deliberately sized down and didn't expect a regular fit. The creases should make for nice whiskers and the tight thighs for good fades - a characteristic generally lacking from 1933s regularly worn. I would be surprised if nobody ever wore them like that in 1933, particularly growing youths, though contemporary pics may prove me wrong!

    @kicks79 it's OK. They are well comfortable. I tucked in my (lovely thick 14 oz SDA) shirt to show the high rise of the 1933 model and suspender buttons. Also I had my arms bent over and was stretching out to take the selfie. These are size 31 and I bought a size 32 at the same time 'while stocks lasts', though if Kaihara replicate the original denim in a couple of years' time, it may be irresistible!

    They have loosened up quite a bit in 1 week.

    The hem is 8.5 inches (size 31).

    @jewellben That's because of my fat thighs and sizing down!

    @istewi don't worry, I seldom soak. Never had jeans that have become unwearable yet but there is always a 1st time lol. Having said that, the cut of my Fullcount 21 oz 0109 doesn't suit me and they have become uncomfortably tight in the thigh after multiple washes.

    Sorry, I can't do anything about that, delete or edit it, nothing! I had thought about the inner labels. Here is a pic of my raw 1933s with 2 days wear - no soaks, no washes. Not how they are intended to be worn but so what.

    Thanks @kicks79 and @Maynard Friedman . I guess it is the thread and/or rivets and/or buttons and/or patch which are imported into the USA.

    Having looked back at the previous posts, the conclusion I have come to is that the Cone denim which has been used is made in Mexico or China (assuming they now make selvedge) or it is left over White Oak and some of the other components are imported into the USA or the denim is Kaihara (which would seem unlikely because the label info would then be incorrect). Anybody got of this 1933 denim with evo/fading?
  15. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Although the cardboard tag and website say Made in the USA from Cone denim, the sewn in inner label says 'Made in the USA of imported components'. Does that mean that Cone denim is imported into the USA, or what?
