'47's are 12.5 oz

I thought the 47s were 13.75 oz. At least that's what I have been told.

The 551s i used to have felt like 14 oz and so far the heaviest LVC I have ever owned. They actually felt too heavy to me in some aspects because of the weather in Texas even in the winter. The 1944s I replaced them with feel much lighter weight but not as light as say..the 1901s I used to have. Those things were like khaki the were so light.

I think my LVC 47' 501xx are pretty comfortable as far as the texture of the jean,although the height of the rise is a bit much for me,im hoping theylll stretch so i can sag 'em.the only other denim i've really broken in is my rrds,which i thought were comfy all the way though....with a more desirable rise..

I scored an almost raw one soak pair on e-bay a few months back. Just stay patient and they do show up from time to time.

wow really nice stuff on that site ^^... i have to step my levi's game up

yeah there really is, those 55's are calling my name. Shame there aren't any like that made in the states, it hurts my national pride to have to buy Levis from another country sometimes

japanese LVC site. They have the 505's deadstock, and the japanese ones are especially nice, as long as you aren't too tall (inseam=34+)

the 505's they have are pre-distressed. the 505 low-rise they have is unwashed, but the denim looks wacky, like the rest of the jeans in my opinion. Much worse than the 05 and earlier EU 505 67's.

No, low rise came into style in the late 1960s. I had a pair several pairs of those orange tag 646s on the early 70s. Low rise bell bottoms and thought they would NEVER come back in style. They'll be out of style again in a few years. One thing that has remained constant is the classic 501 though it has change a little with the trends though I doubt the 47s were as trim as LVC makes in their repros.

I've done an extensive search and cant find an answer to this. My waist is 31" measured so which size do i get in 1947 raw : 33" or 32" waist ? If the answer is 33" does anyone know where i can get this "odd" size as i've looked everywhere. Thanks in advance

just get a 32, you'll be fine. just make sure you soak em on and they wont stretch too much. I sized down 2 inches and it wasnt really an issue. So yes, get a 32.

i'm a 31 and i bought a 32. It is fine with a soak and a belt, i wouldn't worry too much. The legs are still relatively slim so don't stress

I know the Levis NY Flagship store on Lexington had bunch of W30xL32, and about 2 pairs of W32xL32. I agree with the above, 32 should work fine

dont get a 32 length unless you are short...the length on this season 47's seems to shrink a lot. I would try and find a 34 length if i were you. Too bad levis opted not to make a 36 this season........smh

Not to throw some gas on the flame, but I measure a 31.5" waist, where my jeans are worn, and I bought a pair of 30s. With a warm soak, they shrank to be pretty snug, but after stretching out in a couple of days, they fit fabulous. I know many don't agree on here, but I am under the inpression that the lvcs also shrink to tagged size. Almost all the LVCs I have had (2 pairs of 47s) have shrunk to tagged size in the waist. I can't speak for the current year's models though.

Considering the photos you post of your pants and yourself and that you have an XL waist and wear the baggiest LVC repro's, I think there needs to be some room for opinions besides yours on real post war 501's 'not being as trim as repro's'. They arent that trim if you are a reasonable weight and original levi's were definetly very slim to the point that the repros do not seem to be as fitted as originals. America got fatter and sometimes levi's did not.

There is obviously room for opinion. This is a forum. Why would you have to comment on his size?

My dad does some sort of historic re-enactment thing for something he does for the community, and I wanted to get him a pair of repro jeans, preferably something a bit older looking than the '47's.

Which models will have both bucklebacks and the suspender buttons? I've only seen the 1886's, which look perfect for what I'm looking for, but I am not sure would be possible to even get. Japanese repros would much easier for me to get than LVC, are there any Japanese repro alternatives out there that could fit the bill?

Finally,I found a pair of 37501....But I am not sure it's 37201 or 37501,could someone tell me ?

thank you

Here is the link:http://page13.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/r28842881

I believe those were sold as 501s in 1937, but when LVC reissued them in '96, they designated them as 201s.

You might wait and see what airfrogusmc and Paul T have to say about it, though.

aeroleatherclothing.com is selling the 33 501s, which have both the bucklebacks and suspender buttons.

You could also look at Warehouse Duck Digger 1900s.

excellent, thanks man. Are those '33's a normal LVC production (i.e. something I could cop at a Levi's brick and mortar in Japan?)

      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!

Hopefully someone here can give me an opinion regarding this Levi's. Any opinions are welcome, I do appreciated.

      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.
