    Vintage Denim?

    What a great find. So much character. The owner must have been quite the sight because those are some serious tan lines. Beautiful.

    I keep seeing that heavy bag in your pics, and keep hoping you post some denim action shots!

    @Duke Mantee Is that jacket comfortable under the armpits? Or has the denim just not relaxed yet?

    I’ve been told this Warehouse flannel is one washed from the factory. It fits tight across the shoulders, most notably when I outstretch my arms. Can anyone with experience advise me if I can expect any additional shrinking with washing? Or (hopefully) the possibility of a bit of stretch with wear? I’m trying to determine if I should keep or sell. Thanks.

    This is a good point. I, too, don’t need or really even want to draw attention to my clothes. The double arcs do stand out. I’m about to start wearing a pair of Warehouse buckle backs and plan on keeping the arcs original. I’ll report back if people notice the stitching and talk to me about it.

    My vote is for original. Two reasons. 1) I like the way the double arcuates look. 2) they are not Levi’s, so why try to make them appear so? and reason three, because I struggle with counting- 3)the double arcs signify warehouse, which in my opinion is worthy of displaying to those audacious enough to check out my backside.

    This falls under ‘reflections’. I really like the way red thread looks on denim. That about covers it.

    How about a few detail photos? Cool belt ideas, there.

    @MJF9 Here are some more photos. Anything particular you want to see? Some thoughts on this model, of which I also have another pair that I’ve put about a years worth of wear. I’ll dig that pair out at some point to photograph and show the aging. At the time, 1998, the Antique Boutique in Manhattan had a good selection of Levi’s reissues. Studying the details of this model, which were explained in a supplemental book tucked into the back pocket, made me very excited. The back cinch was so different and fresh, it just seemed so cool. The extra rivet at the crotch, to my eyes made this model extremely distinctive. And the arcuates? Wow, still my all time favorite. To my eyes, this pair of 201’s (anyone know the story of this?) looked so distinctive that I am still surprised that no one has ever commented on them, or any of the many cinchback pairs I’ve worn. In terms of fit, they are quite comfortable and are a flattering cut. They are not a perfect reproduction, but I consider them to be in the authentic Levi’s lineage. A fantastic pair, made in the San Francisco Valencia factory. I will never wear this pair, because it represents something ethereal that is gone forever, never to return. It really broke my heart when LVC severed its historical connection to the Valencia heritage and I’ve never bought another pair. Thankfully there are so many other superb options being made.

    Here is a pair that I’ve had squirreled away for well over 20 years.

    Lately I’ve been in the mood to shake things up a bit from my normal 5 pocket uniform. These look tempting: Lot 1222 FLIP TOP STYLE PIQUE PANTS https://ware-house.jp/product/167690521/
