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.

Here’s the website. This will show you what jeans they are selling.

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.
