Levi's Vintage Clothing

Great stuff Setterman, that jacket of yours really does show the true nature of the denim should look after a good deal of wear. It looks like the 554 (stamped button-back) model?

Terrific interview Paul — was particularly happy to see some questions about the indigo. Even more of that would be nice if there is a part II.

Great jacket Setterman. I've never seen a nicer Levi's jacket.

Glad ya like it! It's a Turkish made, 192 button code. Picked it up a couple years ago when they popped back up on cultizm, but IIRC it's tag said it had been made back in 2007.

Kudos to the turks then - looks great. I love that repro, but my 555 stamped sz 44" was just too small/short after washing, and the 48" waay too big. Shame they never made the m in a sz 46".

Mind you, I'd rather have one of those union-made early triple pleated blouses, but $500 is a little out of my league :(

Definitely one of my favorite pieces of LVC. made in Turkey, but i'm 99% sure it's the exact same Cone denim used in my 643 button code 1937s. And the way it's turning out has made me put my 37s into rotation.

Keep an eye out, even though it's a limited edition item, with that price tag I don't expect it to be a big seller, and wouldn't be surprised to see that triple blouse on clearance by late summer.

Thanks for the positive reinforcement Mike.

Unfortunately all the size XL have sold out anyway. It's a bit of a dream really, would have to sell the rest of the 555 stuff and still probably get it tailored to fit the waist a little (46" waist at a back length of 23.5 would look weird IMO, as my waist is only 34).

Anyway, back to reality.

Finally got a chance to hot soak the 1966 501s I picked up from Roden Gray's sale. They were a couple inches big in the waist raw, but they're pretty much perfect now!

those look great Daniel. I have a pair in my denim box, I hope they are small enough...

Just added the roundup of the new LVC season at loomstate.

A good range of dry denim for the fall, too, including the return of the 201. A lot of that XX stuff turns out to be bullshit.

Incidentally, heard elsewhere new boss of Levi's comes from Proctor and Gamble. Oh well...

Thanks for that Paul, great news about the XX still being kept as a seperate entity ( ...really love the denim and details on that jacket, what would we do without sansome!?)

I bought on of those exact same (original) totes for my ex-wife, shame I never took any pics.

You think you'd need an XL? My XL 506 started out at 52" in the chest, I just assume the triple pleat jackets are over sized too.

Unionmade give the measurements for each size, so the sleeve, chest and back length would be inadequate.

Shame they dont do a 'long' variant ala buzz rickson william gibson.

Nice deadstock pair BF, judging by the double stitch waistband, small 'e' and the 1966 flasher - they look like mine.

These are from the late '70's (actually '78-'81)

Lovely blog entry, Paul. Good to see some very nice new items in the coming season. Did you notice if there was any larger presence of made in China items?

Nothing that I looked at. Just about all the washed stuff was Portuguese, the nicer pullovers etc were US, as of course is the dry stuff, leather jackets from Italy. It's just RRL who seem to charge £300 plus for Made In China items. There's a metaphor there somewhere...

Yeah, there's been half a dozen pairs or so going for around this price. Although in my mind, they're not vintage - I suppose I am not suprised at the increasing value.

I wont be selling these, as I sold too much of what I've loved in the past, denim-wise. I only sell what doesn't fit

Plus they came to me via a friend, and If I didn't wear them at somepoint, I would let him down.

p.s. BGB - please check your pm's! :)

<p>I've got one.  Unless they did some variants, LVC has screwed the details on this one too.  It'll be a bit before I can post some pictures, but off the top of my head, the red strap attaches to the outside on the ends, and there is a copper snap at the top that faces front. </p>

      Hello guys, It's my first post here. I am Denimseeker (ig: denim_seeker).
      I have been collecting vintage jackets for a while, esp. denim jackets. Feeling that the denim world deserves a better guide for Levi's denim jackets so I tried my best to make one. The guide is much more complicated than those you see on other websites (i.e. Heddel's or Long John etc) so you might need some basic understanding to read it. This guide is open for comments and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to let me know. This guide is still a work in progress and would be wonderful if everybody in the denim world can contribute.
      That being said, enjoy!

      Hi All,
      see you again on 2020 and I wish you all happy new year. this time I need your opinion about Levi's BIG E that I found at flea market few days ago. I found an old Levi's vest (its a jacket once before), this vest do not have a cinch back, I also cannot see the number on the back of button, tag was unavailable. only rivets, red tab and selvedge that I can see clearly. here's I send you the details. Hopefully someone here can give me an opinion regarding this Levi's. Any opinions are welcome, I do appreciated.
      please let me know.

      I checked the Encyclopedia thread and only one Levi's link didn't give a 404 error, so here goes nothing. I should add that a lot of the center patch jeans actually aren't vintage (at least the ones I'm looking for) and date back to around 2006. I've talked with Levi's support a handful of times and got nothing out of it. I'm trying to figure out what all the center patch pairs are. I know I haven't quite figured them all out, but I've found a few, though they seem very hard to come by, and obviously aren't currently in production. I'd really like to find a pair with the white "Quality Never Goes Out of Style" center patch. Something tells me I don't have the ideal wording, and if I knew exactly what to type, I could probably find a plethora of those jeans. When I google 519's, I have to block the words extreme or skinny (add a - in front of whatever word you don't want to see in the results) or I get mostly brand new pairs of 519's. Here's what I know so far:
       
      This pair, which can be seen clearly in the first photo and on this store page (which has other photos of the same pair) appears to be 519 slim fit. However, they don't seem to be the normal 519 slim fit. One site I looked at called them "519 slim fit side adjusters". I have looked extensively over the past couple of weeks and was lucky to find that clear photo, as well as that store listing and one Ebay listing which sold a while back. On a side note, I found that 511 skinny leg (or a version, rather) seems to look the same, with the centered white patch and waist adjusters, but they too are hard to find. The 511's and 519's have a white patch that says, "Quality Never Goes Out of Style". There may be others as well.

      You may recognize these from the Moonbathing ads. They are part of the "Two Horse Brand" collection, which have a yellow and white patch and say "Two Horse Brand" on the patch. 506 and 511 look identical, while 509 has the addition of a cinch back. There might be other fit numbers I'm missing.
