    @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.

    Interesting, I do remember that being the general chatter (regarding the denim) although never quite confirmed. We'll have to wait and see where they're cut/sewn! @bartlebyyphonics I recall reading that in various jeans descriptions a little while ago which somewhat strengthen my speculation. Not too sure why they wouldn't include similar info in the new rigid jeans since these buzzwords tend to attract customers.

    Yeah, I saw these on Instagram. I could be wrong, but I think the entire jean in made in Japan (denim, hardware, cut/sewn) to celebrate Japan's initial release of 501 reproductions. It kinda feels like more of a collector's item like the Cone tribute jeans, but maybe this one more so because of the Japanese pocket flasher/tags. For me, It says 71,280 JPY which I assume includes tax.

    Hey all, End Clothing has released some of the 501 cuts in a colour called “Rigid V2”. Does anyone have information on the origin of the denim and where they are cut and sewn? On my end, the pricing also seems to be slightly higher than the ones from previous seasons.

    The fact that they're slim tapered is a blessing in disguise... Temptation eliminated! The buttons look quite nice on these, but I also have enough Black Seed to last me a while. It's a good thing, however, for those that have wanted a pair in the past but weren't keen on the straighter legs.

    Took a couple of quick phone pics of my DD-1001XX (1947) jeans. I've had them since May 2018, but didn't wear them all the time. Washed only a few times because I didn't do any strenuous work in them. I went for a size bigger (32 instead of 31) and have been wearing them with a belt as you might be able to tell from the waistband folds. It's made them a really easy pair of jeans to wear, especially in the summer time! Would liked to have nabbed the 1946 jeans in the newer denim, but opted for a pair of IH jeans for the winter time.

    Iron Heart Jeans

    Excuse the mess, but here is some new jeans. It's the PIH10ANS =) I'll give them a wash today. Just a quick edit; gave these a 50C soak then a cold wash in the washing machine (low spin setting). The water was quite deep in colour, so I was initially worried that I should have been lighter on the washing style. The jeans are still very dark, so I probably just limited the initial rub-off. I had these hemmed by IHUK to 34", but could have chopped a bit more off because I'm a shorty. Also, I'll remember for next time to specify including the cutoffs in the package because it would have been nice to have it for future colour comparison. PS, probably best not to put these suckers in the dryer. I spent a solid amount of time scrubbing the inside of the dryer because it was so blue! I eventually soaked an old T-shirt in water and threw it into the dryer for a spin. Saved me some effort. Before -> After (size 31, btw) Waist: 41.5cm -> 40.5cm Front rise: 28cm -> 27.25cm Back rise: 40.5cm -> 38.75cm Thigh: 32.25cm -> 31.75cm Knee: 23cm -> 22.5cm Hem: 22cm -> 21.75cm Inseam: 86.25cm -> 83.25cm I could have managed a slightly smaller waist, but I don't think my legs would have been comfortable. Overall, I'm very happy with these!

    Just to update on post-wash measurements of the Lot 1082 trousers. I soaked them in some hot water, rinsed them in the washing machine and then dried them in the dryer. Size 31 btw... Waist 40.5cm -> 40cm Front rise 29.25cm -> 28cm Back rise 38cm -> 36.5cm Thigh 33cm -> 33cm Knee 25.75cm -> 25.5cm Hem 22cm -> 22cm Inseam 86.75cm -> 82.25cm The trousers basically shrank most noticeably in the length as opposed to the width, which was pretty negligible. The back rise is quite a bit shorter than what I usually wear, but it's not actually uncomfortable. My guess is that the back rise will stretch a teeny bit when I wear it with my belt. I think that the width of the legs somehow make the shorter back rise more manageable to wear. Maybe some pictures next week when I get a break from uni work!

    Hey all, haven't been on sufu for a while, but recently bought some chino trousers in green. They're unwashed and should shrink a bit (I'll post again once I've done it). The current measurements for the size 31 are: Waist 40.5cm Front rise 29.25cm Back rise 38cm Thigh 33cm Knee 25.75cm Hem 22cm Inseam 86.75cm Hopefully some better pictures to come... Including a fit photo.
