Cultizm LVC Contest (photos only thread)


Recommended Posts

#29 checking in finally!


Dec. 03 Update:

Took down the BiG measurements just to keep track of how much the sizes change over the course of the contest.

(left leg measurements where applicable)


- waist: 32 1/4" (82.6cm)

- front rise: 11 3/4" (29.8cm)

- back rise: 15" (38.2cm)

- upper thigh: 12" (30.5cm)

- knee: 8 5/8" (22cm)

- opening: 8 3/4" (22.4cm)

- inseam: 36 1/8" (91.8cm)

Dec. 04 Update:

pre-soak fit pics:



At a glance, they appear to have shrunk close to, if not more than 2" in length, and a quick measurement while damp puts the waist around 30". I still have to try them on, and am too much of a wimp to bear the initial shock of throwing them on damp. :D


Once they're dry, I'll see if I want to try another soak, or leave them as is.

post-soak. (First soak using hot tap water, left overnight)

- waist: 31 1/4" (79.2cm)

- front rise: 11 1/8" (28.2cm)

- back rise: 14 5/8" (37.2cm)

- upper thigh: 11 5/8" (29.5cm)

- knee: 8 1/2 (21.7cm)

- opening: 8 1/2 (21.7cm)

- inseam: 33 7/8" (86cm)

Lost 2 1/4" from the inseam so far. They fit pretty well, but going to do one more hot soak, and hang dry, before getting them hemmed. In hindsight, I should have possibly gone for the 31" waist, but I am sure these will work out fine. I guess it will have to wait until LVC 2012! :)

Dec. 25 Update:

Merry Christmas everyone!

Dec 25th update...



Much longer than I require.... and triple cuffed.

I still have to get them downtown Toronto to have them hemmed. Apparently there is a place called 'Studio Kims' on King St. that does chainstitching, so I plan on trying them out. In case anyone was interested, just google the name, and the contact info should come up.

fit pics 1 dec: 501 - 1978 30/32





I think that's the first fit pix of the 78 model that I've seen. You should x-post in the LVC thread.

I have to say I am REALLY curious to see how this one turns out, especially considering that I think there are some deadstock 555s in this contest as well!

@joe@cultizm - you should put in the index what model each person has.
