Levi's Vintage Clothing

Recommended Posts

Fit pic with the LVC 50s-XX. I think these are going to be slow faders, especially being a weekend pair, but that fabric looks great.

I just saw Steven Spielberg's West Side Story last night.

A staggering achievement in sound,  cinematography,  staging, art direction, and costume design. 

Its also a denim lover's dream. So much vintage! 

But this piece on the left in particular jumped off the screen.

It's from LVC's s/s Space Race 2019 collection.

While it might not be everyone's cup of tea, the jeans at least seem super wearable to me.

It's what all the youth are into these days, oversize and baggy. These will sell super well in the Japanese, Korean, and HK markets.

Further evidence that if you just hold on to your current sense of style long enough fashion will come back around for you to be hip yet again.

Hilariously, that's how I prefer to size my clothing regardless :laugh: Jacket fit looks great IMO (BEAMS collab*)

Noticed Levis UK have got 20% off the super limited Japan 501.

Might be tempted at 50% as I do like them but silly expensive.

Apart from the Katakana text how do the Limited Japan 501 differ from the standard 1955 Made in Japan? Do they use a different denim? And who is making selvedge now for LVC Japan?

I just scored this sample pair of tool pocket Knappave’s off of eBay. @Dr_Heech do you know anything about the denim on these? I assume they were made at Valencia St.

@the shivman Hey Nate, long time no hear. Hope you're well?

Not sure on the denim on these as the only knappave-type jeans that were made at the Valencia st factory were the original Nevada waist overalls, which only came in a pre distressed version at the time iirc.

The first knappave (raw/unwashed)  were produced in 2007 and way after the closure of the factory. Over on db, a member (username maxamillionose or something similar) l was talking to, had a number of sample pairs of knappave/Nevada pairs, none of which have denim origin stories and they were all different in some way (as you would expect with samples). Those look to be a very nice repro imo and a 35x35 (?) - let's see some more close up detailed pics when you have the time. Cheers for posting.

Don’t know if they differ from standard 55s (I assume not) but the denim is made by Kaihara mills

Cheers Charlie, I am doing well. Still scouting the net for stuff like this. Thanks for the timeline on these. I’ll try to get more pics of these when then come. They are 32x32 like Maynard said.

@the shivman - Paul T wrote a good article about those jeans although he refers to them as the ‘Nevada’ model. It may be of interest to you.

I could be wrong but it looks like they've made some improvements to the denim compared to the made in Bulgaria junk from a couple of years ago. The only issue is the MIJ are made TTS on the waist, they've not allowed anything for shrinkage!

Oh l get the blame for everything ;)

Good to see you about here, noticed your sporting a new account  - if you want to continue with your original account, you have to contact the moderator fella Wayne (?) and he can sort that out.

I remember you were quite the collector - amongst them fountain pens were one of your area's of interest iirc. 

[Edit] please post some pics up of the 1873 ducks?

The 1873 are the ones with the yoke and I also found some Made in Turkey ones without a yoke.   The fabric on the 555 1873s is so much nicer.

Great memory about the fountain pens.  My main interest lately is leather jackets so I have been hanging out at VLJ.  Should check in at DB too.

This was the account I created when Superfuture had that long hiatus during an upgrade and DB started.  I think my old account became invalid because of the exclamation point in the name.

I think the duck items made at the Valencia street factory around 99/00 were some of the best items lvc ever made. That duck fabric was unique. I kept the vest from the old original set l had just for that reason!

Shame but DB is all but a ghost town these days. I haven't posted there for over a year. At least here its fairly buoyant, even if we're all mostly not really buying that often and into different styles. It's a different world than 10 years ago denim wise too: Warehouse is the new Lvc (although overall higher quality and better construction imo) and because you can unpick the arcs :) but mostly we're all wearing repros of WW2 Levis which dont require any arcs...

Looking forward to seeing your vintage leather posts btw and good to see you back.

      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.
