Long shot, but figured if possible, this was the place to ask...!

Any chance anyone can identify which model of 501s Brad Pitt has been wearing? I’m thinking 67 or 77 given the taper but unsure.

Any insight would be appreciated!

thanks

Anyone got an LVC 501 ZXX in W38 ?

I would be interested in some measurements (thigh, LO) after couple of wash :)

I’ve been wearing my 76s lately and really enjoying them but one minor irritant (on both my pairs) is the width of the chainstitched hem, it’s far too wide in my opinion. I owned a few pairs of selvedge 501s back in the 80s (some of which may have been from the late 70s) and they all had narrow hems. None of my other era LVC have this wide hem issue either so I’m not sure if it’s a deliberate ‘feature’ or simply inaccurate sewing from a factory used to making wider hems for other brands.

I believe the shoes are Seavees and the shirt is by God’s True Cashmere

If anyone is interested in any Made in the USA 1873 First February 2000 deadstock 822 on the button these are currently available at £222 in the sale (sizes 31 and 32 only). They are sold as having been made at Washington State All Seasons Sewing Factory. Size 32 is in short supply. https://item.rakuten.co.jp/birigo/levis-125-0024/

They are very well made (see raw pics) and do not have the same problem as my other pair of 822s where the left pocket lining stuck out (see washed pics).

^ same but paired with my forgetfulness.
Found these stashed in an old shoe-box at my parents place. Have probably worn them once or twice at most and stashed them away for the future after that. Luckily they still fit :D Think I bought them spring or summer 2017 when the news of White Oak closing down came out.

Just got this shirt in the mail. Thought I bought an lvc shirt but it looks kinda sus. Made in Indonesia and a red tab with a small e. Main line or fake? What do you guys think? Fabric is nice enough and construction is solid though.

Update: the 1966 cone 501s didn't sell! £220 start price (reasonable). Shows you how overpriced they are on Aero for cone and on Levi.com for Japanese denim.

Sizing help please!

Will a pair of pre-washed/distressed LVC’s fit the same as a raw pair that’s been fully shrunk in the same tag size?

Been reading through posts and sizing guide, but haven’t seen it spoken to.

I wear 33 in Warehouse 800xx & Unbranded 301, size 2 in Orslow 105, and 32 in Iron Heart 634 - was hoping for a slightly more relaxed fit and got a 33 in a pre-washed/distressed pair of LVC 55s and am completely swimming in them. Now considering a size 32 in the raw 55s, but unsure if that’s a wise choice

fwiw my '55 lvc raw (made Bulgaria, Japanese denim) at w.36 hot rinsed, drip dried and then worn some come out at 47cm / 37 inches waist... [not yet hot machine washed, tho...]

@Hoohoodunit historically (last decade or so) LVC non shrink to fit models measure what they are tagged at ie, 31” waist measures 31”

Raw LVC measure the size it starts out at so a tagged 31” waist would shrink down to a 29ish and stretch out an inch (give it take). 
 

as always it’s best to have the particular garment you’re considering measured.

looking at the flat levis's red tab, they have not been washed, or very mildly. the red tab curls up the more washes it gets

Good point. They were made in November 1998 and my experience is that the red tab on the older models doesn't curl up as much as it is does on the newer models. I will look to add pics to demonstrate this.

The red tabs are now bigger and less rigid than on earlier models. Top row: 1996, 1996 and 2000; bottom row: 2018, 2019 and 501XXc's from 1998.

Interesting that this pair of made in February 2000 822 Washington State All Seasons Sewing Factory 1873 First 125 0024s should have the price tag of 25,000 yen printed on the label. Over 21 years later they are selling for 44,000 yen.

Been focussing all of my energy on getting these 1955s ready for a wash. 188 days now, still aiming for 210. And I did track down those Brad Pitt Seavees..

Picked up two interesting pairs 2nd hand for fair prices. One S501XX probably rough rinse that was lightly worn and had one small hole that I repaired. Digging the anti-fit.

Also some 505s and I'm not sure what to make of them. Thinking they could be fakes... Would be grateful for any opinions :)
What makes me suspicous is the washing tag that states 1967 501 Jean. Strangely enough someone posted the LVC catalog from 2007 on denimbro which also has some 505-0217 as 67 501 Jean on the product overview site... so there's some hope it could be an early LVC...

Was wondering if any lvc expert could help me identify these, I know they’re 1800 something, but not sure what denim, where they’re from and I think they are natural indigo , any help would be appreciated.

      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.
