I can't imagine Levis in 47 drasticly changing their cut for one year. I've read they cut the 47 LVCs trim to go along with the current trend in slim. Heres a photo of a pair of late 1990s STFs 38 waist and a pair of 47 LVCs. Both have about the same amount of washes. I would say the 55s are cut more similar to the late 90s STF 501s. Well anyway a picture can say sometimes what words can't.
Wouldnt that mostly be due to the fact that the modernish 38 would shrink to a 37 while the denim used in the lvc 47s should shrink to like a 35?
