    @Pedro I think you're making up scenarios in your head if you think we've been trying to apologise for Levi's. If I've learnt anything from your last posts, it's borderline impossible to have a constructive conversation with you when you just rant, condescend, and contradict yourself.

    I think we're kidding ourselves if we think LVC repros are truly stitch-for-stitch. It's not like they're going to develop variations within the same fit in order to represent how the constructions may have differed back then. The current '66 arcs are most likely an exaggerated version of something from the archives or maybe it's an outlier that they chose to base the '66 off. Like @SmokeStackLightning said, it probably also helps differentiate the LVC lineup.

    I could be dead in 2-5 years (but at least I wouldn't be waiting for any WH Ranch jeans!)

    You can figure out if they're the MiUSA ones or the made in Bulgaria ones by looking at the PC9 (nine-digit product code on the last tag). Pretty sure the last time I checked, the V2 models had a different code to the last MiUSA models. Honestly, didn't really expect much else from Levi's in regards to the lack of transparency... It's almost as if they're ashamed to say that these repro jeans (that they were once so proud to say were made in USA) are now made somewhere you wouldn't expect. The price ain't helping their cause either. I think they forgot what they were once good at ages ago.

    I don't understand why people wash their jeans while wearing them... Wearing wet clothes is so uncomfortable (for me, at least).

    I think I described it really poorly lol It's this one, yeah?

    I think I remember the one you're talking about. It's that Leepro-esque one with the long pocket?

    Thought I'd share some shrinkage info on the 2001XX 1st Type. I recently helped my friend shrink his unwashed jacket in size 36. Pre-wash -> Post-wash (hot soak, cold machine wash, hang dry) Chest: 53cm -> 50cm Shoulder: 46.75cm -> 43cm Sleeve: 65.25cm -> 61cm Back length: 63.5cm -> 58.5cm These measurements were relatively rough, plus the side seams and pleats may have made the chest measurement a little off. No dryer this time (at his request). This has actually made me want to wear my type 1 more now!

    Made in Bulgaria seems pretty disappointing. I know that something being made in the USA doesn't necessarily mean it's of higher quality, but it would have been nice to continue cutting/sewing the rigid pieces in the US. I mean, the price increase and different denim origin don't really add any sort of appeal to LVC jeans anymore. Maybe I'm being silly... I don't know.
