    those new bulg 1955 pictures are courtesy of a nice chap from the Australian Levi's website. I ended on there by accident. anyway they have this cool "chat to a stylist" feature where you can ask questions. so I asked them if they were going to be getting some new photos on the site because all the pictures are still showing the Cones.. and we like to see what we are buying, right? so he tells me he just got in a pair of the new 55s and he sends me this massive PNG file which was too big to put on imagebam (hence the screenshots at different zoom levels).. by the way.. when shrinking jeans is it best to have them un cuffed, or cuffed? I sit in the bath with them uncuffed, but with the 76's I cuffed them to not get indigo all over the carpet. I don't know if that had any factor in how they shrank.

    Who wants to see the new Bulgarian 1955s?

    The raw fit of those 28 waist cone 76s was so tight I couldn’t even tuck a t shirt in. And even after they were too tight, I questioned whether I had made the right decision to return them. these will be fine... the old me would buy jeans from stores and they never have my size half the time. I would buy 30 waist, was usually the smallest size they had, and whats weird with pre shrunk jeans is- I would always still need a belt. basically, I love having jeans that actually fit me now.

    bulg 76s: Vs cone 47s Courtesy of kicks79. I love the 47s.. I’m going to hold off shrinking them until warmer weather has arrived as I prefer to dry them in the sun as opposed to a hairdryer.. but man I think I have a new favorite pair of jeans. Best raw fit I have had so far.

    I think so too. They are 66’s though right? Those shallow arcuates?

    I saw a 1947 deadstock pair w30 L34 on Grailed. Are they yours? Cones. I was tempted but they are a largeish w30 and i might be better off with a w29. My true waist is 29 inches. I’m also looking for a pair of 1966s, ideally in a w29 l34. I think the jeans from American Graffiti are 1966s, looking at the arcuates.

    Every single other pair is in the sale, no need to be a rude a-hole about it.

    Why are the 55 and 47 still full price? I know they are popular models but come on......

    god I love these jeans with converse. they were made for them. I am working on getting some desert boots though. If only I could decide between my 70s versions and the red ones. as for the jeans, very happy with the cut and fit.

    I just laid them out naturally, here is the back. wish it wasn't winter so I could get some decent light.

    check out the leg twist on these 76's. I actually like it, makes them even more 70s. nice non LVC Levi's shirt I found on ebay. and here is me illustrating the crazy differences between the same shirt sizes. That 60s shirt was a little tight, was definitely more like an XS than an S. so I got a M from somewhere else (luckily also reduced price) and it was the exact same size as another Levi's t shirt I have which is a S. the small 60s shirt on top. the M on the bottom with the other S shirt placed over it.

    those 76's are exactly like mine. I've seen those pictures of raw cones standing up after being soaked/shrank and they can stand up on their own. my cone 76's were almost like that. I took them off and they were still in the moulded shape of me. impressive. and they shrank a LOT. these new ones are nowhere near as cardboardy. they are ok I suppose.. Time will tell how well they age and develop, that's the real test. how do you find them compared to the cones?

    The sleeves are long enough for me. Should be ok if it shrinks a bit. I am already thinking about my next pair.. I want something rock and roll next.. seeing American Graffiti again after so long really rubbed off on me. Whats the best fit out of these? 1947 1954z 1955 also, is the 54z the same fit as the 47?
