    The 1984 Rigids are 40% off (on the UK Levis site anyway). Extra 10% off if you sign up for their email brings them down to just £100 delivered.
  2. I have the slim R. They are probably the most flattering jeans I own, can’t recommend them highly enough. I wear a 36 and they fit true to size (for reference I can swing a 34 in other brands such as full count) so I personally wouldn’t size down.

    How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    @MJF9 damn right my friend. I’d leave to pink ones to Corbett though.

    The bright blue denim of the '37 is one of my favourite fabrics.

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    They are superb. Got a pair going on 3 years now.

    I was always of the assumption that vintage was 25 years. That being said for jeans I would consider 70s and earlier to be vintage. Maybe it’s denial that anything I could conceivably have worn originally could now be considered vintage!

    Superga 2390’s. Wanted some cheap as chips military style pumps and these have hit the spot.

    Deadstock 502's can be picked up for a third of that price if you need a Japanese made LVC 60's cut.

    And if you ever think about shifting either of those pairs of 38's....

    SugarCane 1990's M-Series Archive

    @Double 0 Soul that’s exactly what I had happen on my m41001 (no patch). The top block was just a bit too trim for me (and I have no arse chicken legs). Mine were a 35, I got them back to a 34 but that was it for any give in the waist. Lockdown has got me embracing the loose fit of my old (mainly lvc) size 36s around the house and for long dog walks in the sun to get out the house!

    Look great mate. I just sold mine, they were always a bit too tight in the waist and never really got worn. My 41028s are on eBay too. Beautiful jeans but i need a 36 in a higher rise cut. On the plus side, can spend some time trawling yahoo for more old sugarcane that actually fit me!

    They did it in a Reykjavik when I was over there recently. Like the ones Broark has pictured there. 4 local Icelandic beers in 1/3 of a pint glasses on a bit of wood. Being Reykjavik I recall it costing approximately £28.

    Unknown Japanese Brands

    I randomly picked up a Shuttle Notes overshirt from one of my local vintage stores. Beautiful slubby fabric. The label inside suggested it was a sample for (UK department store) John Lewis but I couldn’t find any evidence online of the range ever making it into production.
