    thanks @volvo240thebest! only three months to go and i've gotta lotta catching to do with many here and on the 'gram hoping the summer isn't going to be so punishingly hot this time and btw: think the bigger cinched look suits you [but then as a 'japanese' baggy fit fan, my obvious bias is obvious!]

    the 50s denim is worth the interest the generosity in the cut is more in the hem than the thigh... but it is a pair that gives and gives

    My story is that I went into the london store to get the 1890 (to pair with triple pleat jacket for total tux tuta as I really like how the denim has evolved on that jacket), then out of curiousity tried on the '76 left with both... [really didn't expect to at all] v. glad now as '76 is all gone in my size in uk web-site both are great, but the '76 is perhaps most versatile for everyday wear and for UK weather...

    re: '54 501zxx a slimmish tapered fit I believe comp. to '55? and yes, thought '76 would be tight fitting, but nicely generous outcome

    unlike the more discerning Maynard I have been buying in all recent lvc at 36w as I don't mind a baggy fit... my recent stories 1890: same glorious denim (I think) as the triple pleat jacket: quite slim legs with high rise (thus baggy arse w. skinny legs if wearing at waist in modern style - ie not suspended) 1915: irregular denim, generous waist, two back pockets still w. suspender buttons and cinch only (and lvc cinch for these period jeans quite fragile and not that reliable) 1937: you know well enough 1944: amazing flat yet rich denim, slim-ish legs with high rise (but the bar tack at crotch seam can be irritating) 1976: just get a pair (I want to get resolute 710 to compare...) + btw @vexed_wear wrong thread to say it, but I think yr boncoura 66 are one of the best fitted and worn pair I've seen: nicely done...

    Hey @vexed_wear for hot weather my 1915 is lvc favourite as is light, but also quite wide leg, but quite pyjama-esque for work... in terms of favourite jeans - no experience of the the 50s/60s and been getting a fair few of the recent releases of pre-'47 cuts and denims which all have pretty self-explanatory characteristics (specific fabrics, vintage detail and cuts) and wear each for those aspects. The 1976 jean is the real surprise hit for me; didn't expect to like as much as I do - great denim and subtle very wearable cut (would consider buying again to stock up on it...) of all the lvc/cone denims my favourite is type 1 jacket for its chunky-ness and royal-blue ness; would love a pair of jeans in that fabric (it is similar to, but heavier than the '37)

    incredible hobnail boots sir! glad you enjoying the ig choices, but to put the damaged rw shot in context the interest of it is that shot is the sense that there may be a possible model of rw 2268 that is teacore aka #browncore
