    Limited to casual Fridays and obviously weekends when I'm not at work.

    I wear a 30, but thanks!

    I wear a 30 waist so definitely not me.

    I've been very interested in both the Sugar Cane 1947 and TCB 50s, which from what I've deduced seem to be more similar in terms of fit than the LVC '47 vs. '55? The only thing really holding me back from purchasing the former two pairs currently is that LVC will no longer be using Cone Denim in the near future and I want to grab those before they go for good. Thanks for all of this info! Sometimes I feel like all these details are so minor in the grand scheme of things but then I remember that it's really why we're all here. I think I'll have to make my way out to the shop in Malibu to actually try these on, though being from Los Angeles, I'm sure you know that's easier said than done. (Though American Rag on La Brea has a fairly large selection of LVC as well).

    Thanks for the info, I think I’m definitely leaning towards the ‘55 now. What I really like about the ‘47 is the straight silhouette. When you say you have a “tight fit” pair, do you mean that you sized down? How does it compare to a ‘47? Is it just wider throughout? On that subject, I’ve read that the LVC ‘47 is an inaccurate reproduction of an original 1947 501, anyone have any idea why that may have been? If the whole purpose of the (sub)brand is to create accurate reproductions of a time period, why attempt to modernize it?

    Anyone own either a '55 or '66 (or both)? Thoughts? Recommendations? I know this is the last season to be using Cone Denim and want to get at least one last thing.

    Bummer, none in my size. Also, the way they display these jeans very strange. On the subject of tapered legs, I've really come to dislike them because the more dramatic the taper the worse the bunching around the cuff. I'm not sure if that bothers anyone but it's something I really don't like. My preference has become a slim thigh with a straight leg.

    There go those 50s again!

    I think the only thing holding me back is that I currently have too many pairs of jeans that I don't get to wear very much as it is.

    Seriously, seconded. I'm itching for a pair cause of these pictures!

    Nice, we're the same size. I wear 30 in just about every pair I own except for my FC 1108 which are 29, many SuFu members said they stretch a lot so I sized down. Great recommendation too, they've stretch beyond some size 30 pairs I own. Is Zimbabwe cotton prone to stretching? I know TCB 50s are also made from Zimbabwe cotton.

    Those 50s look great! I think you mentioned in an early post that they weren't the slim version, did you size down at all?

    Sorry, I meant which is closer to the original Levi’s 1947 cut, the LVC version or the Sugar Cane?
