  1. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Thank you @Paul T.
  2. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Ok, so wife found these at a vintage shop recently. From what we can find, these are 60’s to 70’s era. They look to be in remarkably good shape. Any info? Edit: are bell bottoms, sans rivets or selvedge line.

    Is this the proper forum to post photos of and questions about actual vintage Levi's, or is there a better place to do so?

    For those of you that didn't see it, Left Field featured @BrennenCooke on Instagram a few days ago... Edit: yesterday, that is. I seem to be one day off this entire week...

    Very cool! Glad to be a part of this- looking forward to them. Are we all going to do a month of wear or a longer period (1.5-2 mo) ?

    I'm in Colorado, USA.

    @ Brennen- I was looking at a pair of those as well, but the waist may be too big in the smallest size. Have you found them to have stretched out much? I may do a pair of the French Blue Chinos, but been having some trouble deciding between the two!
  8. Interest check - Boncoura or Roy world tour

    I'd be interested in participating if the Roys make the rounds. Bonacoura will be too large for me.

    @Pizza, @Brennen - congrats to you both! @Christian - thank you, and thank you for the fun contest. Thanks sufu for hosting.... And thanks to all of the other competitors. As many of you have said, it was nice to get to virtually know you and get a peek into your lives. It's pretty neat to know that we all started with the same product, yet got visibly different results in the end due to fit, wear patterns, and washing/soaking. I had a great time!

    To all participants, I posted my final pics on the last page (102) right before Christian asked us to post 'em today. I let him know, so please hit back one to check them out... I had an estimated ~280 days of wear, and washed one time only, right at the end. And it was a pleasure to get to know the other participants. A pretty interesting and cool group of people! Really enjoyed the contest- I am a slow fader compared to some of you, despite the number of wears I had! And really enjoyed the denim- I will definitely be purchasing from @Leftfield again! And to answer your question Christian, it is a Olympus XZ-2, now several years old, but still doing a good job. I have seen Valley Uprising and enjoyed it, Lynn Hill was a customer at my last job and she actually lent me her personal copy! How cool is that?!? Day 1: Day ~280, post wash:

    Annnnd (sorry to blow you up) fit pics... As you can see, my dogs who are also fading from black to grey, were quite eager to help me! The hot wash and dry has shrunk the jeans back down quite a bit, I could wear them without a belt now. Are we supposed to send final pics to Christian? Anyway, it's been fun. I look forward to seeing the rest of your final pics!

    Hey Gents, With just a few days left, I decided to go ahead and wash yesterday. If you don't remember, this is the Chelsea fit in a waist 31, and I have not washed or soaked for the entire year of wear. I am guessing somewhere around 280 days of wear in that time.... Prewash- Post wash (machine on hot, pulled before spin cycle, rolled up in towel to remove excess moisture, then in drier on low until dry)- contd....

    @ Brennen- that repair job looks very well done! I find/make time to get outside because it is important to me. It helps that I have off 3 days a week, am not in school, don't have any kids, and have a very understanding wife! As long as I spend one of my days off with her, she seems okay with me doing whatever on the other two.

    And some mountain photos for you all! The route I soloed in trail running shoes to reach the top of Noel's Knob, 5.4. A face in the rock near the summit of Mount Olympus. A pine framed by a gate to private property between Crosier Mountain and West Crosier. A very pretty meadow area en route to Crosier Mountain. Hart Ridge, Lead Mountain, Never Summer Peak, and Mount Richthofen (way in the background). These peaks are all in the Never Summer range, which forms the western border of Rocky Mountain National Park. Pinnacle Pool, 11300 feet. The last of 141 named bodies of water I have visited within Rocky Mountain National Park. Some were more difficult to reach than many of the peaks!
