Levi's Vintage Clothing

Recommended Posts

Have you tried if the Levi’s UK online shop will ship to India?
Another shop where you could look at is Cultzim. Or you simply google the pair you are interested and you will certainly find links to different web shops where you then can see if they would ship to India and how much it would cost.

What is the slimmest of all LVC type? i'm talking about Warehouse 900 slim, more or less is fine.

Plus the sizing advice for that particular pair.

Not sure if it’s the slimmest but 1954 501zxx I saw had the most slimmest leg with the highest rise so far from my LVC research. It’s a shame they have a zip fly so the hunt continues.

Does anybody know what is the difference between "Rigid" and "Indigo" versions of LVC 501 jeans?

The Rigid is sold out on Superdenim but Indigo is available. Both are cone mills Selvedge.

I think that Indigo means new rinse. It equals to the rigid version being one-washed in the factory before selling. It will barely shrink anymore but some of indigo will be lost in the process.

The rigid version is the RAW version and will shrink considerably when washed the first time. Like the Flat head you need to soak the rigid version prior to wearing.

Anyways, it is just a guess by looking at the pictures you've shared. Best way to find out is to send an email to superdenim :)

Sizing down on 47s will get you a nice slim fit if that’s what you’re after.

Is it fair to assume that the 1954 cut isn't popular here? I am looking for a review and fit pics but can't find them even on google.

Anybody has a pair of LVC 1954?

After some research,  i think this page provide a much better information, though not 100% detailed, but just enough of all the LVC type.

Pretty helpful for some LVC beginners.

Will keep this in mind.

For now, i'm considering the 1978, 1954, but the 47 details is much more tempting.

Still try to figure out my sizing for LVC. Should i size down or size up?

i'm pretty sure nobody here like to spend $200+ on a denim and ending up in depression and regret because the sizing is wrong and the denim can't fit properly. please help a brother out ;)

For warehouse 900, i'm wearing size 32.

I saw that earlier today.

For my purchase, I may go with this store though LVC at Milworks. The video on LVC is also very good here.

Superdenim being an British shop, selling probably at British retail and have an automated currency calculation whereas Milworks being an American shop adhering to American retail price.

Maybe Superdenim also sells them simply cheaper

Yes its just currency exchange rates. $285 / $1.395 is roughly $204, Superdenims price is standard RRP, rigid LVC jeans are £180.00 gbp

@i_denim

i have some 54s. Not really worth posting as not worn a great deal. I found the taper to be a bit too aggressive compared to my much preferred 47s. 

Edit: moral of the story, check measurements against a pair of jeans you already own and like the fit of!

Now that cone mill has been permanently shut down, how will LVC produce repros? Should I just buy one of each 1947, 1954, 1955?

Yes, buy 3 each of every model from 1880 to 1978, that should sort you out. Alternatively read the last 20 pages of the thread and you’ll understand a bit more about the likely future scenario for LVC.

My understanding is that there's been a prospect of Cone closing for the last 15 years, and during that time they've had a backup arranged for every single fabric. They will still commission each one separately with different yarns.

Yes, it does undermine a good part of the heritage of the brand. I know plenty of people there who really regret the closure of Valencia St by Philp Marineau (who then trousered a multimillion dollar bonus).

Finally found what I wanted to hear from the man I wanted to hear from :)

I think it's fair to assume LVC will commission fabric from other mills and some could be in Japan. However, Cone selvedge now becomes a rarity and collector's item if somebody does want to own a cone denim. One could get a pair of Levi's Vintage ($$) or LVC Cone while they last. There may be others including Roy who offer Cone denim too.

While I narrow down on the LVC pair I want to invest in, did LVC offer other fits or they only reproed the 501s from several eras? I want to research about 606 and 505 fits as well.

With the demise of the authentic repro lvc fabrics I’ve gained interest elsewhere. I’ve recently bought 3 nice pairs of Edwin, one pair being 15oz. They seem a nice middle ground product.

      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.
