Visvim SS12

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get a s/s 2012 101 jacket but I'm having trouble deciding on a size 1 or a size 2. I'm 5'9 140, I read a couple pages back that some people copped the new 101 jacket, any way you guys can shed some light on the sizing? Much appreciated !

5'8 here. I'm having a 101 size 2 on the way..The measurements I was given was 53 cm x 63 cm. A size 3 would probably fit alot more baggy on me. It should be here early next week If you want more fitpics and proper measurements so you can decide what size..

I know the sizing can be difficult sometimes so I will gladly help!

im 5'10 and 150lbs i wear sz3 101 because i want to layer, sz2 works perfect for me with just tshirt. you seem alittle bit smaller. so i would follow same rules, just size down 1. wear size 1 for just tshirt or slim oxford, buy size 2 if you want to layer flannel and/or hoody etc...

Anyone know why the 03 and 04 denim isn't selvedged but the 01 and 05 cuts are? I know there is on the coin pocket but not on the legs. Im guessing that perhaps they are based on an old Levi model that also wasn't selvedged for some reason. Due to Visvim's obsession with detail and authenticity there must be a reason. Maybe Kiya you know the answer? Its always puzzled me.

it is due to fabric fabric width, and the more slim the less chance you can have selvedge due to fabric consumption and pattern cutting. I never owned nor tried APC but I thin Petit Standard are not selvedge ?

Also coin pocket dont have selvedge on 04, only waistband - but that's pretty cool to look at your selvedge while taking a piss - haha.

I see. But there are still many slim jeans with a selvedge. The 1967 505 is selvedged and thats fairly similar to the 03 cut if I remember.

Visvim isn't exactly doing straight repro cuts, if a jean is made of selvedge denim but doesn't show selvedge down the side-seam its either because they're saving money and using the selvedge edges for accents on other garments, accessories, or footwear OR the leg is tapered from both the inseam and outseam.

Thanks Kiya. I know that Visvim isn't a straight up repo brand but they do reference or at least take as a starting point classic fits and vintage models. Still think there's more to it why the 03 & 04 aren't fully selvedged. I think its down to a classic model they used as a base for those 2 fits.
