I guess it is hard to find one haircut for a century...

I’m not sure - some of my work colleagues seem to have accomplished this!

Here's a useful LVC fit guide, courtesy of Aeroleather.

That is a great guide. They did a pretty amazing job of actually sizing each pair correctly and picking out the vibe.

I would resent the fella for looking so cool and handsome in every shot, were it not for the fact that the photo of him in the 1947s reveals he has a strangely warped and deformed right leg.

Lol.  I have a paper copy of that guide Paul, and his wonky leg always freaks me out!  In the back shot, his left leg looks crooked, so it must be some funny angle with the pics.  I wonder if they let him keep all those pairs...

I wonder how the LVC 1880 waist overalls compare to the 1890's in that drawing.

the 1890s are rather slim fitted in legs and seat compared to the 1880s. the 80s got a tapered waist, measure really wide at the hips. it´s actually from all cinch backed jeans the most unflattering silhouette.

What you are describing matches the little cartoon drawing for the 1890's very well, though.

the '54 has a higher rise and tapers down below the knee.  

 

I've been thinking about this. How do they decide where the knee should be? It must be positioned assuming a certain inseam length. The knee will fit differently for somebody who hems them or cuffs them to 30 inches inseam vs somebody at 36 inch inseam.

From what I've seen, a lot of stores/brands generally measure the knee 13" to 14" from the crotch. Having a standard usually causes less confusion. A person's knee is obviously not going to be at the same position for everyone, but the knee measurement is still useful in deducing how straight/tapered a pair of pants is especially if you've been given the thigh and hem measurements.

Also, standardising the knee measurement based on inseam length wouldn't be a good idea because it will most likely confuse/deter people, especially newer customers that are unfamiliar with your measuring procedures. People also wear their jeans differently, e.g., closer to their natural waist as opposed to hanging on the hips, so having the same inseam length as someone else won't mean the knee will be in the same position.

That sounds correct. Are those the washed pair?

there was both a raw and washed in 2000, here are my old raw paid. I had a washed pair too... and somehow managed to lose them.

^ I think that’s the F3 05 part, which possibly means either March 2005 or Fall (season 3) 2005.

How does Levi's decide what's the cut of the current 501's being sold in their retail stores today? I know it's not a LVC question but I struggle to understand what 501 means in a retail Levi's store,

I don't know how they "decide" it, but I can say based on measurements that my contemporary STFs and OFs have been fairly close to what I would imagine as halfway in between my '66 and 76 cut LVCs. Not as bell shaped in the upper block as '66's, but not as tight hipped as '76's. Modern 501's and 505's are actually a very good fit on me, and they look great in the Rigid sanforized material. Darker than LVCs, and fade plenty quickly and quickly for a "cheap" jean. I have a $19 discount store pair of irregular 505's from within the past two years, and they are one of my best fitting and best looking pairs. I wear them indiscriminately with my LVCs.

      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.

      Levi's Engineered has some center patch jeans as well, though I'm really trying to find more of the white patch pairs.

      Hello - I have a larger personal collection of vintage workwear.  Lee Hair-on-hide, a pair of 1947 Wranglers, Stifel wabash chore jacket and matching overalls, are some of the collection's highlights.  Most are larger size as they had to fit me (of course) - I am a large shirt (US), and most pants are a 32 waist 32 inseam or larger.  Some really great stuff.  Levis jackets from each era, Early Lee and Wrangler jackets. Chore jackets galore.  Racing tees from the 60's.   Boss Of The Road vintage "no belt loop jeans" as well as the same in a Boss of the Road khaki (with wax marks from walking through the mine!).  I just don't wear this anymore.  I live in Los Angeles.  Some of the stuff was even featured in SUPERTALK magazine  a few years back.  The first Levi denim banner as well as another early one.  Too much stuff!  Selling as a collection or in piece.
