  1. Yea that's exactly my problem. I wear boots all the time. Summertime and wintertime. It's my other obsessions. I don't really do sneakers, though I do have some derbies I wear on rare occasion.
  2. I appreciate that! I think I could pull it off if I had more of a retro/old timey wardrobe. I just don't have the right stuff to wear with them. My loss will be someone's good deal! Just posted them in the market
  3. Bump for new LVC 1976 for sale!
  4. I think in the end I'm going to sell my 1976s. I'm not sure the shorter length look goes with the rest of my wardrobe. I'll let them go for 150 to anyone here! Only worn 3 times
  5. My 32/34 was not short like that. It seems strange to me - perhaps the smaller rise on one size down? Mine were 34.2 inches and shrunk to 32.2.
  6. @serotonin flood They were up a week ago under the wrong name because: Levi's is dumb. I notified them of this problem and presumably they are fixing it. If you switch to the UK site you can see that they're up. I'm sure it's just a matter of time.
  7. Yea that's what i was going for for once - usually I'm always cuffing. I've been moving more towards a retro/classic/choose your term look. They are definitely fully shrunk since I gave them an agitated wash in the machine.
  8. So I was able to get a pair of the 1976's. I intentionally went for a 34 inseam, despite being that I'm 6'2 (I usually go for a 36 when possible). Anyone else here rock the high water look? When I see a lot of vintage Levi's ads from the 60s and 70s a lot of dudes rocked a pretty cropped pair of jeans - and I mean before cuffing! Any opinions on this around here among the repro fans? I'm on the fence about whether or not I can pull it off. Basically I am talking no break at the hem - just straight. They are a cool fit for sure for those who are wondering. To me they look like the best example of a true 60s/70s 501 fit I've seen LVC produce. So about the fit: is this too short? Or can I pull it off late 60s style (think of those photos of the Beatles in jeans, those were some high hems!)
  9. So I noticed something weird on Levis.com: Check it These are in fact the new 1976 501, you can see from the style number (I checked it against Paul and Williams photo album for the SS17 collection which lists the style numbers for each piece). I called Levis.com and told them. They had no idea what I was talking about obviously. But why are these $285, the usual price point for the historic 501s? Not to mention you can tell from the photo they are obviously not the 606s. I wonder if it will actually get fixed? I had a 30% coupon that worked so I ordered a pair to check them out since the photos - as usual - tell me nothing about the jeans - especially on that 90 pound man-boy model. Hopefully the warehouse sends me the correct item based on style number and not the name and I'll post some real life fit shots of the new 76!
  10. For sale is a new pair of the recent LVC 1976 501 release in size 32x34. I got these direct from Levi's. They are an awesome late 60s/early 70s fit. The only reason I'm selling is because I'm just too tall for them and really need a longer inseam (at least in my eyes) These have been machine washed on cold without spin once. In my experience with LVC this gets 99% of the shrink out, unless you hot wash and dry to really make them small. I've only worn these 3 times in doors, so they are basically brand new. Current measurements in inches: Waist: 16 Front rise: 11 Back rise: 14.75 Upper thigh: 12.25 Knee: 9 Hem: 7.75 Inseam: 32 These are retailing at $285. I'm asking $160 shipped in the US.
  11. So, while I understand current Skull 5010xx to be at least partially sanforized, can I ask how people have sized them? I'm usually a 32 in Flat Head for example, which is my TTS. Skull 32s seem a bit big for me starting at 33.5 inches, according to BiG. Can I size down to the 31 and get some stretch out of them? It sounds like they don't shrink much when they get wet, as they aren't true "shrink to fit" in that sense.
  12. For sale is a pair of Flat Head 3005 jeans I purchased from Self Edge a couple of weeks ago. Hot soaked them once, and wore them 5 times. They just aren't the fit I'm going for. There is almost no visible wear except on the pockets (where TFH tends to wear fastest). These are unhemmed. Measurements in inches: Waist flat: 16 Rise: 10.5 Upper thigh: 12 Knee: 9.25 Hem: 8.2 Inseam: 34 These were $315 retail, asking $190 shipped.
  13. Phew! I had a feeling you guys would not go for the suede.
  14. Perhaps someone can ask Kiya if self edge will continue to get the regular arcs?
