Sweet.

That should result in some awsome crotch blow out!

Ever heard of Sebum?

Cotton and Sebum are not friends.

no signs of any blowouts at the moment, only the usual cuff fold minor blowout. I'm not much of a sweaty guy.. but any signs and they get washed. my Lee101z were washed at 183 days and could have gone longer I reckon.

@Maynard Friedman

The last time I saw an inventory of LVC like that at aero had to be a dozen years ago, but whats with the sizing?

Is that link from the Lilliputian catalog?

What I can’t work out is why they are still offering their regular non cone Levis at £170.. haven’t they noticed the price hike up to £210 on levis.com?

My 501XXc's after 2 months wear, no washes, no soaks. A few baby fades emerging now but promise of whiskers and more to come.

600€ anyone? I feel these special editions get more expensive by the day.
And they will surely still sell. Dunno if you can use them as an investment though for the secondary market ;)

That's insane...you could buy like 2 or 3 pairs of Warehouse for that price.
LVC has been dead for awhile, but these special editions are clearly just a cash grab.

mmmm...

this from English site version...

surely that is what normal lvc '55 is these days [japanese denim, archival repro.]; so c. £300-400 diff. for MiJ [w. Japanese labels] vs. made in Turkey/Bulgaria [in plain old English tags]? 

mmmm [intensifies] ... 

anyway...

another wash

@Jambon They appear relatively easy to cart & check out on the Levi’s app (at least in the U.K.), unless that’s just to enter into a prepaid raffle. 

I won’t repeat some of the sage words posted above about these, but hope you can cop if you’re after them.

Broke out my 76s for summer wear (a bit prematurely given the weather!) in rotation with my 55s. I really like them - both the cut and the denim. My only minor gripe is that part of the pocket bag peeks out near the front belt loop - something you often see on WW2 jeans.

whats with the buttons on the 1976 501? The top button is normal, but the lower buttons look like this.

They’re stars, the top button has them too, although it’s less noticeable as it has a bigger diameter - I’ve just checked mine as I’m wearing them now. I’m not sure if the originals would have had that pattern at the time, though I assume they would if LVC saw fit to include it. I like the stars, they’re a cool little touch.

Its strange, i tried looking at vintage 70s Levi’s on ebay and I can’t seem to find the same button design. As for the stars, all the levis buttons have stars, not sure of you mean the little dotty bits.  76s have a sort of plasticky feel. The 55s are my favourite, they have sort of a gun metal look almost. 
the 1947s are second, very bold and substantial feeling.

Yes, the top button has the spots/dots too, they’re just not as prominent as on the other buttons. The buttons on the 66s also have a nice feel to them. Overall though, LVC are not renowned for the quality of their hardware.

Yeah, I seem to recall they were most similar to the 1955s.. 
 

here are the modern buttons, more sharply defined and not so bold, with extra stars. Kind of what the 76 was going for but better done maybe. My favourite still is the 55s, they were knocking it out of the park in the 50s.

The last photo? A pair of “premium quality” 501s I bought a few years ago right before I got my first LVC jeans. 
 

they have a leather patch, big E and other assorted vintage details, no selvage and prewashed though

Not denim related but I can’t understand why the majority of this seasons LVC Loose Fix collection based on the Manchester rave scene isn’t available to buy in the UK. Marketing gone mad

      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.
