I just hammered the rivets on these 1933s as they were pulling threads on a throw I have on my sofa! They came out pretty well. I already removed the suspender buttons and may chop off the cinch soon too...

Have you got any spare rivets? My Bulgarian 1937s have just shed 2 of them from the right front pocket!

Happened to me 10 years ago with a single rivet on my 1915s. Get in touch with LVC and they’ll send you some replacements. Also worth contacting your local LVC store - Cinch in London used to have a jar of spare rivets on the counter, I seem to recall.

If you still have the bits can you not just refit it and hammer the end to keep it in place? I don't have any rivets I'm afraid.

I would if I had the bits but I have only got 1 male and no female bits. Waiting to hear back from Cinch. They either came off in the washing machine or when I was stretching them out before wearing them after they had dried in the airing cupboard. Bizarre!

Picked up a pair of early 90's LVC japan 502's to go with my Type 1.

Very little wear for a pair of jeans 27 years old.

60's cut with a talon zipper fly.

Can anyone help identify these I purchased off eBay last summer but they look bizarre on inspection 

based on my knowledge they have the back tab of a 55, the zip like a 54, the cut of a 55, and the arcs of a 66 with a single sided tab

Rivets? The one that I can see on the second pic looks a bit weird.

54 has a different patch too.

So, they are not 1954z, 551ZXX, 1967 505, 1955 or 1966.

As they’re labelled LVC, it seems they’re either a factory error or fake.

Show us the inside of the rivets on the front and back pockets. Also the yoke details pleez.

The pocket bags look like the ones on all the "Made In Turkey" ones, maybe that's why the inner tag was removed, the patch is pretty much definitely a 1966 one.

hmmm... fixtures and fittings look good, without seeing them in the flesh i would guess they're legit, and that the inconsistencies are simply production errors.

Guys, can anyone share how's the fit on the LVC USA's 55, the batch from the 4420 factory, TTS?  Also, for sale I have a pair of USA 37's W31 L30 in almost new condition, way too big for my butt, so if anyone's interested shoot me a pm (I'm in Europe, if it does matter).

 

Thanks

I have 2 pairs of raw 55s, from 2007 and 2009, one has a button code of 4420, can’t remember which. Both are tagged 32 waist and measure approx 34.5 raw. Hope that helps.

EDIT: just double-checked, the 2007 pair has no button code and the 2009 pair has a code of 4170 so please ignore my previous advice!

Not sure about my button codes, but look back through my old posts in this thread to find brand new (unshrunk) measurements off my two pairs of '55s. They are recent Cone versions, from within the past three years.

Anyone know what these are?

Just bought them. Pre 2 horse patch and 2 back pockets?! Will probably get them home sometime next week. Also got what seller claimed to be lvc 1983.

These may be the 1901 - the first 5 pocket repro, although I’m not sure if that is the correct patch, I think it should be one with 2 horses. 1983 exist too - something like the old 1978, nothing to write home about I believe.

Sort of a specific question: How was the sizing on LVC Type III jackets from the Valencia St. factory? How much did they shrink? Not sure whether to expect to be a 42 or a 44. For what it's worth, I have a more recent "Rigid Trucker" from Levi's regular line that fits well in a size L.

      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.

      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.
