  1. Thanks Julian for explanation. except color, seems to me japanese denim (probably Kaihara) very very close to Cones. I compared both fabrics before initial wash of Bulgariens and structure of both denims and differences were almost unrecognisable. I saw b_Fs fit pic of 1976 (Cone) on page 699 and I can't register any twist. on left and even right right leg. If producer of denim is Kaihara, which has experience from Japanese run of LVC, where is an error ? Maybe that's the intention... 

  2. I was also very surprised ... right hand twill always (or should be always) creates leg twist on left leg. NOT on right. have anybody explanation of that  phenomenon ???

    when I see pictures of japanese LVC repro from nineties leg twist is on left leg...

  3. it's fantastic jacket. even better as I expected. fabric is very nice. not white, but lets say something between ivory and off white. I bought size 44. in LVC, SC and Lee I am size 42. inverted triangle construction of jacket is perfect and shoulders are really NOT huge. just enough. 10 oz would be perfect in summer....

  4. compering to cones I have to say it's not difference in quality. just denim is different, even in Japan they did really good work - they have experience from nineties, when they produced first run of LVC. but is possible to recognise. difference is very subtle, but I feel that denim would fade faster, than cones. craftsmentship from Bulgarian is not worse, than from USA. just little diferencies ... I bought them as summer jeans due to the weight of denim. for that reason I decided for shorter inseam to fit them with sneakers ....

  5. due to aggressive sale I decided, that I need another pair of 1976 B). it was also curiosity " how looks Bulagarian version V2 ".

    I own 1976 Cone in W34L36 which I bought in 2018 and production year was 2016. Never I worn them, because of the size 34 is in raw 35,5 " and I swim in them. Another little bit stupid reason is to protect Cone version for future ....  Scored size W33L34. Raw exact size is in waist 33 (along my Cone W34, expected little bit more room in waist), inseam 33,5. After warm wash and one day wear is waist 33,5" (wow ... wooden stick method) and inseam 31,5". They fit perfect now without belt. Fit pics in the week ...

    Unfortunately I did pictures of new V2 after initial wash and one day of wearing them in comparison to Cone Mills version. On pictures is Bulgarian V2 always up...

    When I compared raw x raw, denim is very similar to touch and looks very close. But color of japanese denim (Kaihara ?) is more bluish and brighter against darker and greyish Cone. On picture it is visible. Even short 30 degrees wash could change little bit color, but not so muchIMG_1084.thumb.jpg.7473a93891635e77f8a56a5fab3a563e.jpgIMG_1085.thumb.jpg.7d02ca9a6bf2d2aad9344d10b3a1a8ca.jpg.


    little differencies in arcs...IMG_1087.thumb.jpg.67bdafa416200a5d5db6e051db6d0f4f.jpgIMG_1088.thumb.jpg.8d552dbf182670796aee9413382e86b3.jpg

    different thickness of selvage ...IMG_1089.thumb.jpg.1163e5340f9d68f8c0d14c35b94392b1.jpg

    inside out ...IMG_1091.thumb.jpg.b4019e905809d5120098ad86d2a69268.jpgIMG_1092.thumb.jpg.bc52caeb97ba6093dd7e999a0a39793e.jpg

    but most interesting is, that after wash started RIGHT leg twist. not left, which I could expect from RHT ...IMG_1093.thumb.jpg.8aa47a1d111e1f7de69d6842ab1a5e3e.jpg



  6. I have whites too - IH634. And have to confirm theirs versatility. I wore them also only in winter due to the 21oz. Now they are almost 2 years on rack waiting I will keep diet and will be slim again  :blush2: 

    so to buy AA710 would be verified choice...
