Thanks John. 

Glad to know you. As a more experienced denim head, what are you're thoughts on lvc vs original?

To me (and this is in no way meant to be derogatory to lvc), they are totally different beasts altogether. Which has proven to be a good thing and a bad thing for my wallet :laugh2:

Dr_Heech, I bought those 60s originals so long ago I can't remember exactly how they compared to LVC ... and wasn't paying attention to details like we do now.  Plus, my body shape is a bit different with a 33" waist then and 35" now.

What I do recall about them as a kid is that they were stiff as hell (and flat as a pancake) and it was fun watching them transform into something completely different after soaking -- not unlike a junior high school science experiment.  As I've said to b_F and others, the fit was similar to my current pair of LVC 1966.  They'd sort of sag down on the hips and go straight down from there -- not a lot of body contouring, but comfortable in a slouchy way.

I'll leave the quality comparisons over the years to you and others, who have much more experience with early LVC, as well as originals prior to 1966.

The people who buy these things never even wear them, they just keep them in the bag forever.

finally got a nicely priced 1950s Sportswear shirt from ebay.

probably my favorite shirt now, perfect sleeve length and shape. I  guessed sizing up to a M would be the correct option.

Hey Paul, l did hear of your new job and congrats btw.

I used to be able to wear jeans at work many years ago, but now it's weekends only (and a more sedentary lifestyle due to foot problems make for alot less wear).

Glad I grabbed two pairs of the 1880s on a major sale. I believe I was able to get them for $180 a pair, or maybe $210 (marked down from $600 standard retail price). I got a pair of 36s and a pair of 34s. The 34s are probably too tight, and I'll sell them some day. The 36s, I hope to start working on in the next couple of years.

They've got the most extreme leg twist of any jeans I've owned. Sitting down now to drink my coffee the selvage is past the front line of the jeans, ie more than 45 degrees. Same with the shrinkae on length and waist, way more than the Roys.

Colour's a good bit darker than this photo, which doesn't show the really extreme crinkling and little bumps, way more than anything I've seen (although these days I tend to put thru wash rather than soak). Being a slimmer fit they're maybe not as good summer jeans as the 1890s and their predecessors, the 1901. but I'm committed now...

Has anyone been following whats going on with this Vidalia mills / white oak loom connection? It seems legit that they bought the looms from White Oak and are now producing fabric. Is there any hope that LVC will return to US production and US fabric? I'm interested to see the results from left field. 

 

Edit: I just saw the posts in the cone closing thread. Maybe should have put this there - oh well. The fabric looks promising from the imogene + willie pics etc... They don't have the looms on a wooden floor of course.

These “1971” jeans look like 1976’s to me. Thats a 1976 patch. I thought the 1971 were the same as the 1966, the only difference being the small E tag?

 

I wouldn't expect them to be as furry as the 1976s - also the fit is slimmer without the jodhpur effect. Quite tempted by these. Not too fussed about where they were put together as long as the quality is good. Bulgarian 1966s in Japanese denim were on the small side. Cone 1966s were more generous. Any body know what Turkish Cones fit like?

So LVC has become like every other limited edition hype-driven item and its bought by resellers to flip and make a profit.

Good luck to that ebayer, but I can't imagine anyone paying that much for them.

Well it has got 11 watchers! I haven't bothered to log in to get more info but I suppose somebody in the USA who was prepared to pay $500 for them but missed out when they sold out there could be prepared pay substantially more than they were on sale for.

Those 11 watchers are probably other tools that are considering peddling their own. 

I can’t see a situation where people can buy a pair of blue jeans and double their money in a short space of time in the same manner of trainers. At the end of the day they are a pair of unremarkable blue jeans (yes, raw, LVC, limited, yada yada) but you’d think anybody that is tempted would have a reality check and buy another pair of raw unremarkable blue jeans. 

Of course you’ll always get the exception where some seriously wealthy person might pick them up and it not register on their bank statement, but I can’t see it. 

I recall when LVC ran a limited heavily washed jean each season that retailed at $501 (I think). They always had a gimmick like came in an oil can or with a special tote. I got sucked in and caved in once - regretted it about 10 minutes later :huh2: It’s still a nice collector’s piece, but fuck me what a waste of money.

According to End Clothing's website the UK price will be £240. Watch out entering End Clothing's draw if you want a leg length longer than 34 as they do not usually stock L36. https://www.endclothing.com/en-de/features/levis-cone-mill-501-golden-ticket-jean-register-now-on-end-launches

      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. 
      if interested
