Levis Capital E Skinner Pics

Recommended Posts

just got these.. thought I'd share pics

They seem to run a little larger than the premium skinners--about a half inch longer rise and a inch larger in the waist and thighs

this pair is called justice

It has a nice greenish tint and almost feels rigid...

I don't know how else to describe these other than very soft and stretchy

im sorry.....i just dont knwo about this whole cap E thing.......it seems like lecis just trying to cash in on the premium denim fad in a different way then their premium line by using refs to their history. Until I see something trully amazing I wont be completely impressed. Im sure they are nice jeans bro, not trying to be an elitist prick or anything but I dont know.....I guess ill hold my real opinion until i see em in person

F**K HYPE

No offense, but, I think they missed the mark there. They need to learn to carve a new niche instead of trying to make something that looks like PD&C or Loomstate. Levis also need to learn to stick with something for a while. Seasonal shit just isn't working for them and reinventing the brand with lower quality goods is definately not going to be their saving grace!

Carpe Denim! (not the jean brand silly!)

Yeah, and what happened to Levi Red? They had a couple of good collections few years ago.

here here...it seems that most of the new lines they try to introduce (type 1, engineered, capital e, etc) seem to fall short...i don't think they'll ever get anywhere trying to copy the copycats...in my opinion, they'd be better off throwing all their weight behind producing the best quality product they can with the models they pioneered...doing this at maybe three different price levels (red tab, red and lvc)...that's just my highly unqualified opinion

I'm telling you, the rigid strummers are the only good cap e product I've seen....and they are really nice. better denim than any of the other pieces, and probably the nicest fit Levi's has come up with in the last 5 years. For Fall, they are introducing more fits (skinny, carrot leg, etc...)

Red is still around, it's now the lower priced product of the 2....

None taken... I actually think they are overpriced (actually any jean over $100 imo is overpriced) and I realize the wash isn't spectacular, but I like slim bootcuts and love Levis so there aren't really any other options for me.

cant_sleep-Both of them cost 178.00 at the Levis Store in SF.

I personally like the fit of the skinner. Hell if it is good for Dwight Yoakam, it is good for me. They have a tight rock & roll feel to them. The denim construction and quality though aren't close to as good as the LVC though.

Yah I have a pair of rigid skinners myself, I like the fit as well. The very low rise takes some getting used to, but its nice with the boot cut at the bottom, doesn't accentuate my chicken-legs icon_smile_big.gif

Before soaking I found the leg opening to be a tad wide, but I soaked them last night for the first time and they came out to pretty much perfect for my liking.

Is it just me, or do the Cap-E skinners in those pics seem a bit less slim?

Those look exactly like my 501s that I've worn for about a year.

Do you take your normal size or size up/down when buying skinners?

I normally go a size up, but these seem to come true to size

I like the rise and fit of them skinners but too much bootcut. Superfuture changed the way I see denim. Im a straight leg, jean cuffing dude now, hah.
