got my type 3 jacket today, I was wondering whether this jacket is shrink to fit? the body part fits fine, but the arm length and size kinda off... will post picture later...

557 or Type 3 is Sanforized - only minimal shrinkage.

not sure from which season my jacket from, but tag says 70505-0217, dont know whether it makes any difference,

hot soaked them yesterday, it helps a bit, at least on the arm length part, thanks Paul!

Offtopic ish

Are 511 similar fit to Dior 19cm and 510 similar 17cm?

I'm thinking of getting 511 Levi's raw so I can

Rotate with my raw mij Dior's

Would it be a big difference? Would I feel "cheap" when putting my Levi's on?

Can you be more specific or would you rather keep it a secret, which is completely understandable?

I assume it's the Levi's factory outlet store.

I have never seen a real one - I believe there is a Levi's Japan repro somewhere on this thread!

Hi Setterman, no those are not white levis. they are 519's which are also desirable and cool. however i have a big problem with these, for one the $210 price and also they are not a good repro. the original 519's had no leatherlike patch in back or arcuates on the back pockets. they were a rather simple slim cut corduroy jean.

my advice is check ebay often. we wear the same size and i have bought originals for no more than $40. they are not hard to find, they were made up until the early 90's. the quality on these was good all the way through but the older ones will have a talon 42 zipper and the old style care tags. they turn up regularly even NOS.

yeah, i really like those. they are a flattering slim cut without being tight or binding. fit is very similar to the LVC 505 and they are a bargain. LVC japan did an excellent repro of a 1975 519 in grey but for what they cost there's no sense in buying them, originals are plentiful and cheap. i think all are little e, AFAIK i think the only changes during the entire run are what i mentioned earlier. from a talon 42 to a levis branded zip and the care tags, otherwise all are the same except size and color.

oh one other thing. levi's will shuffle around lot numbers through the years so you will encounter some strange looking 519's of new mfg but they have nothing in common with the originals other than the lot number. originals were slim with a slightly tapered leg opening.

Does a levi cut exist that is - 16.5" in waist, 10.5" in rise (around there), 12" in thigh, and 7.5" in legopening?

LVC 1954 501z xx

size 33x34 (pre-soak)

16.25" waist

11.25" rise

12.25 thigh

7.5" leg opening.

the 54s are my favorite jeans i've ever owned. i've sung their praises here before. guys love'm. girls love'm. great slim tapered mid/hi rise jean.

my experience is that they shrink less than the 47s and 66s.

i still need to get around to measuring and soaking the size 33 47s, 54s, and 66s. when i do i'll publish my findings.

Wow I like these. Never heard or seen the 1954 501s. Seems I would need a 34 if those are pre soak.

54s hardly get any mention here as they're considered unauthentic.

what they are is very flattering and modern looking, making them the perfect lvc n00b gateway model (i don't mean that in a condescending manner btw). most connoisseurs though will agree it kind of defeats the purpose of going repro in the first place. i do own a pair, as they are made in usa quality and match well with my contemporary garments. 1947 & 1966 are also quite easy wearing but the vintage repro virus is a strange one, i've found myself slowly but surely attracted to the quirkier models, up to a point where i am finally comfortable in wearing my 20's 201 (arguably the hardest model to pull off) in public, the gf even said the other day she thought it was her favorite model on me when she was like wtf when i first got them a year and a half ago, i guess they're an acquired taste! :P

i've always thought that my yen jeans were 1890 "repros". am i correct in thinking that?

That seems right- one pocket and tag to the side would correspond to a Levi's between 1880 and 1900.

Anyone looking for a sweet deal on LVC?

Check out your local ROSS stores for various pairs of irregular LVC.

I went to 8 different locations in Arizona and picked up 6 pairs all at $22.99 a pair.

They are all pre-disstressed versions of 501's;1947, 1954z, 1955 and picked up 2 pairs of 1967 505s.

The only defect i could spot was a "sticky" zipper on the 1954z. It was just tuff to pull up and down.

@ $22.99 they are a steal!

Happy Hunting

edit: just picked up a raw pair of 1927 501's too (but in a big size 38x36....looking for a 30 to 32 inch waist)

Put a little soap or candle wax on the zipper...will help you get it moving.

I've only been to Ross once, but the impression I got was they have no clue what's in their stores...just saying. :wacko:

      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.
