  1. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    No, they'll just go back to sourcing denim from Japan.
  2. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Not sure if this is supposed to be sarcasm because I'm pretty sure that a little variance in the same size is within tolerance.
  3. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    @428CJ I did an intial hot soak and hot machine wash to shrink them, and I did a cold machine wash (with detergent) before Christmas before they were really dirty. I'm not a huge fan of high contrast fades, but rather more "vintage" looking ones. I really like the fit as well, but I haven't managed to take any pictures of me wearing them.
  4. DWC2 - Photo Updates Thread

    These are my LVC '66s that I've worn since mid-October. Got a chance to take a couple of photos today. Happy New Year!

    Just a front and back pic of my '66s. It was probably a bit too sunny outside, so they're not really as light in real life. Have been wearing them since mid-October, and they've gone through two washes. They've developed nice roping and seam puckering.

    I'm just gonna call it a blessing in disguise that I woke up too late to get them... Looking at it that way makes me feel less shit. I guess I didn't really need them, and I didn't need to spend close to 500 AUD! On a more positive note, good job to all those that could get a pair, and hope it has been a pleasant New Year!

    I'm really happy they're not slim or slim tapered jeans... For me, straight or loose jeans are the way to go!
  8. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Yeah, the hemming page says it's a navy blue, 100% Pima cotton, tex 135 thread.
  9. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    These are the measurements for the Memorial Jeans. The back rise seems rather long, but not too dissimilar to my '44 501s. Will need a hem though (and hopefully I can keep the extra material for hand repairs).
  10. Warehouse

    @SuperJackle I have a feeling it's just the Heller's Cafe HC-036.
  11. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    My friend said that I like to get shoes that look like Converse, but aren't... I tend to wear PF Flyers or shoes made by MoonStar. If I wear sneakers, it's only Hi-Tops these days.
  12. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I'm thinking about sizing up... I'm a fan of looser fits these days because I'm turning into a bit of a fatso for my height. I've had size 30 in a couple of Roy's offerings, but I'll have to see what the dimensions are like before choosing a 31. They do remind me of a '55 cut, which is one of my favourites!

    Thanks, man. I'm not sure how experienced you are with Warehouse's 14.5oz denim, but do you know if there is further shrinkage despite them being one-washed? Would it be possible for you to measure the waist of the DD-1003XX BiG style?
  14. Full Count Denim Thread

    Well, the thing is that I work at a Levi's store lol These days, I only wear LVC stuff, which is fine, but I want to get back into other brands. Basically, I want to do a sneaky one by wearing "Levi's".
  15. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    The fit on these look nice. I'll be patiently waiting...
