    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Merry Christmas y’all. A little evo update on these excellent San Antonio ‘55s. Coming up on a year and half’s worth of wear, washed plenty of times. Really gotten into that vintage fade territory now.
  2. Here it is after a wash. It was just getting to dirty and crusty. 40 degrees and no shrinkage. Lovely colour. Really love this jacket. Can’t flip the last photo…

    The ugliest Jeans in the world thread.

    Not jeans, but too fugly not to share. “Trucker” jacket tucked in. Now I’ve seen it all. I ventured on to the Levi’s website for the first time in ages… I think this says it all about what Levi’s has become these days. And the LVC section is just a joke…

    Vintage Denim?

    Thanks for all your input! The 557 will now get some new and well deserved love. Thanks a lot @mstax. Another jacket that i am considering parting with is this rather immaculate 70505-0317 Big E. No wear, tear og repair. Near perfect stitch integrity. 524 buttons, black bartacks under that flaps. Likely a late 60s/early 70s. As good as new. Measures 59 cm p2p, 56,5 cm back w/o collar. Any ideas regarding worth in todays market? Will post more photos tomorrow for preservation and documentation.

    Vintage Denim?

    Thanks @Dr_Heech for giving me a reference. From what I'm seeing, the market has really become sort of a bubble - I can't even find Type IIIs without the price being way too high and in poor condition. I can't help but laugh at that 4400 $ price. Would ebay be the best place for me to sell it? If anybody here has any interest, feel free to shoot me a PM. If anyone is wondering, the chest is about 60 cm P2P

    Vintage Denim?

    A little backstory - back in 2016 I was really fortunate to get this one in deadstock condition. It was my first vintage piece and I was really over the moon since I got to be the one who could be the first wearer of this jacket. I knew that it would be worth more deadstock, but I didn’t care - they were made to be worn after all. Here are some pictures before, during and after the first soak.

    Vintage Denim?

    This 557xx never gots worn because it’s a tad too big for me. And since I got my size 46 transition, I don’t I’ll ever use it. I think it has excellent seam integrity, cuffs needs a small repair, no big deal. “O” buttons. 557xx label, so I’d say it’s a second gen jacket after the “Every garment guaranteed” one. How much would a jacket like this be worth?
  9. Saw these in VMCs instagram. The most faded I’ve seen of the jacket yet. I think it looks amazing. The hue really shows off an authentic vintage denim Colour to my eye. Reminds me a bit of my 557s.

    Thanks @Duke Mantee! It’s a brilliant leather made by a true artisan - can’t hurt the odds of it turning out good

    Tried to capture some of the patina on my @Duke Mantee belt. Really hard to get the lighting right to make it really show. Couldn’t be happier with it. Maybe besides losing weight and the possibility of having it shorted soon, haha.

  14. Thought i better post an update to my jacket. 6 months of solid wear, no washes. Planning on washing around the 12 months of wear mark - never gone that long before. Really like where this is heading. Busted a couple pleads as well - didn't expect that. Don't know if i might end up doing a repair on them eventually. Terribly sorry about the pictures not rotating correctly... Something goes wrong in the upload and i can't do anything about it...

    Watches and Denim

    Got myself a new watch after waiting for a suitable replacement for my old and busted CWC G-10. Praesidus A-11 Combat. If you are looking for a great repro for a strong price, this is it. Built in the US, Swiss Quartz movement. Combat is the 32mm one, true to the original but they do make them bigger. Upgraded the strap to an all black one, which I really think suits it.
