Recommended Posts

which brand would that be, the entire small questions thread?

No --- It's the Bartack Brand with Pictures in the Small Thread.

so if a question is ignored in small questions thread, it is no longer a small question, but instead deserves its own thread?

Maybe? Who Knows.....Whatever... If not. Kill the thread.

Hi thinkfilm28. Tried to pm you, but not it was not possible.

Do you have an email or do you just need to clean up your inbox?

I have a pair of unused from Bartack, but I'm more a Levi-Lee guy.

Are they worth anything? ie: so I can buy more LVC or Vintage Lee's...

Or should I just start wearing them?

Pics would help. Judging by the old pics, they look like some Levi's clone. Hows the denim like?

very thick and stiff. I think thicker than even my new lvcs..

Nice! Might as well beat them up. I'm sure a another pair of Levi's will show up in the future for you. Your call.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. I'll wait for Levi's to lower their prices back to normal, so I think I'll throw these in the rotation....

okay, I decided to keep them....

giving a soak as I write this... These have really hairy denim. And the water is really green now.

Way over bright photos of fit after the soak. First day wearing them. Stiff as a board... I love that first day feeling...

just bought a pair of these on ebay for really cheap... how much shrinkage did you get out of the waist?

I think almost 2 inches but they stretched out a bit. I'm really digging these jeans. the denim get's that real hairy look after while and now they're really starting to fade nicely. I just had to give them a wash yesterday because of a food accident. I'll try to post some pics this weekend.

What size did you get? Oh, and I lost a lot in the inseam. Probably 3 inches after only 3 washes....

Oh, and I found on a french sneaker site a guy has a pair and with the original pocket flasher and said the jeans were 16 oz denim. As they were very thick when I got them in their raw state.... check yours out when you get them to confirm.

allright.

did the description of the item in the auction have a black background? and I remember seeing the leather patch but not the name "bartack"

I have a pair of these. the model is called CB 701-P which i think is a 1966 model (I know Bartack had an XX model too that was a bit looser & came with hidden rivets & leather patch) I got my pair second hand so they've been one washed & the patch is missing, other than that they are in pristine condition.

I've tried to do some research into this brand. Haven't really seen them anywhere except in the jeans pavilion blog. Apparently these jeans were discontinued sometime around '99 or '00. My pair is dated to '98

The denim is really nice. Green casted medium heavy with subtle irregularities & quite the vintage feel to it. Guess the weight is somewhere around 14 - 14.5 oz

The fit is a little wide for my liking & pretty damn tight at the waist but I still like em so I think I'm gonna working them in to the rotation, haven't really tried them on with boots yet. That will propably look better...

got mine yesterday... loving them.

post some pics. I agree on the jeans as I've really fallen for them.

for me they fit a lot like my lvc 55's.

yes! I like that fit too. could be a tad more fitted in the seat area but that'll come with the future washes I guess.

Like the detail, that the red tab is on the "wrong" side. Confused me first
