I can't remember when I last posted my 1880s natural indigo LVC. I am thinking this was probably the last new fabric desgined by Allen Little at Cone.

Here they are dry:

Hey guys,

I’ve noticed Hinoya are selling MIJ LVC type 1s and 2s, do you think this will be a limited run or continuous production for the Japanese market?

I really want an LVC type 1, I’m not sure if I should get this while it’s available

looking amazing there @Paul T... have the last cone 1870's and 1915's still to properly chew through: sorry I didnt get those beauties as well! [I think the smallish back pocket had put me off; but it all looks great with your wear and treatment!]

@suchislife - thanks for sharing; looks like first type1 lvc appearance for a while ...

Here are some pics of my blanket lined type 1. Hot washed a few times early doors to shrink up, prior to any decent fades setting in but I like it.

Received my MiJ Type 1 from Hinoya, here are the measurements in inches I got an XL(44)

Chest: 24
Length: 26.1
Sleeve: 26
Shoulders: 21

The arms feel bigger than normal reminds me of my TCB s40 jacket, I'm going to give it a soak then share the measurements when I get a chance.

I'm happy with it, my only concerns are the bagginess of the arms.

Do we have any idea of where these new MiJ jackets have their denim sourced from?

END have a raffle for that ugly long Tyoe II Jacket and a pair of MiJ 501Z 1960's – anyone have any info about these? What's the deal with the MiJ line and why is it being marketed over here?

Probably because the MiJ line is the only remaining part of LVC that will interest dedicated denim enthusiasts - and enable them to squeeze extra £££ out of them. If the stuff made in Bulgaria/Turkey, etc is the same RRP as the old MiUSA range, then surely a MiJ tag should cost more? I imagine that’s part of the thinking.

^ this! But still, 60s 501Z sounds cool imo. But I'm just waiting for tcb to make 501Z repros tbh :D

MiJ 501Z is listed at £210 - basically the same price as it's sold for in Japan.

I managed to snag a Cone Denim Made in USA Type 1 a couple of years ago half price. The Store didn't realise what they had and I managed to work out it was most likely a Cone model and not a newly released made in Bulgaria Trash. I got lucky. As I remember the arms were roomy but settled down after it was soaked. I would avoid machine washing - I did mine cold on a delicate cycle but the denim really softened up after that - just soaking retained the deep indigo rigid look which I prefer but it'll get there eventually whatever you do. Your MiJ looks a great repro - looks identical to my made in USA. It's a great fitting jacket.

I stand corrected. They cost more in Japan and the same price as Japan in USA but they are being priced lower here. I made the mistake of looking at made in Bulgaria models sold in Japan for comparison.

Apparently they've wasted Cone denim on that fucking clown jacket.

" we crafted 501 limited-edition hand-numbered pieces each of the 1960 501®Z (in washes “Rigid” and “The Rumble”) and the 1953 Type II Long Trucker Jacket (made in Japan from deadstock Cone Mills White Oak® Red Selvedge Denim)."

Also noticed that they only go up to a 36 waist in the UK now, so that rules out any new LVC jeans for me.

Think about how many regular Type IIs they could have made from all that denim!

Excuse me,can i ask you in which sense do you mean ,,made in bulgaria trash? Denim,craftmanship or just the ,,bulgaria fact",?

Over the years i had lots of cone denim in my hands and i must say iam more than satisfied with my bulgaria 1955s.i love the K Denim.

He may have been referring to Uncle Bulgaria – the oldest and wisest of the Wimbledon Wombles and their leader.

The Wombles are fictional pointy-nosed, furry creatures created by Elisabeth Beresford and originally appearing in a series of children's novels from 1968. They live in burrows, where they aim to help the environment by collecting and recycling rubbish (or trash) in creative ways. Although Wombles supposedly live in every country in the world, Beresford's stories are primarily concerned with the lives of the inhabitants of the burrow on Wimbledon Common in London.

 Actually, I was asking about the new MiJ type 1 and 2's that you can find listed on Hinoya's site. I would assume they are also Cone.

Also, I am just going to pretend that those long type 2's don't exist :ph34r:

How about a cropped version of the long Type II? Wouldn’t that be quite a thing!

      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.
