sugar cane

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm enjoying my LVC 1947 501XX (thanks Br.). Great pair of jeans. The fit is not exactly "trendy" by today's standards, especially when worn next to a pair of nudie, but they have that "authentic" look which is quite amusing, and they attract a lot of attention from people in the streets (at least in paris). Now, to the topic, how do Sugar Cane raw compare to LVC 1947 line? My pair of 501XX is W31, so I will *never* wash them since they will shrink too much for me to fit in. Dry cleaner is the only option there. So, I would be in the market for a W33 and since LVC are a bit hard to come by, I was wondering if Sugar Cane would do the trick. Thanks Emmanuel

SugarCane will definitely do the trick. They have some 1947 replica jeans, and are excellent quality (with a price to match). They use a heavier weight denim than the LVC jeans, and should be a bit tougher overall.

i'm jonesing to get a pair of SugarCanes in the near future *also, it looks like Dry Bones has a good 1947 style 501 repro...either way my Jap friends gives these 2 brands a "Lock and Loll thumbs rup"

Not really my thing, but I've seen both the Sugar Cane and Dry Bones versions, and prefer the latter. Maybe I just like the name.

I like Sugar Cane's veggie indigo with the varigated, striated hues.

You get a lot of attention on the streets of Paris wearing 47s? I have a feeling this depends on the street you are are walking on rather than your jeans. LOL. SugarCane's offer a lot more variety than LVC 47s - obviously, as you are comparing a collection of jeans to one style of Levis. I like 47s, but would choose one of 'Canes' one-wash super thick warp yarns.

indeed, though my topic may have been misleading, I was comparing lvc 47 to the specific sugar cane "1947" raw. And yes, they do attract some attention, as raw denim is not a very common sight in paris, let alone selvage one. Do you live in Paris too? .luc

Oh, I see. LVC 47 versus Sugarcane 47. The LVC 47s are one of the best Levis made IMO, so if you're into Levis and selvedge then they are almost a must-have. However, if you were to ignore the labels and the historical references, then I'd take the 'Canes. I don't live in Paris (yet). But I was there the other day, wearing raw selvedge jeans and nobody batted an eyelid at me. Darn. You live in a beautiful city. Lucky man.

One last question : SC1947 - are they sanforized? - if nor, how much do they shrink from a no-wash state (waist) Thanks .luc
post #13 of 44
Not sanforized. Expect approx 1.5 inches shrinkage on waist and about 3 inches on leg length. See this link for more info: http://historypreservation.com/hpass...hp?uniqnum=127

Grave digging here.. but i couldn't find any other SC only threads...

Sugar Cane Fall & Outdoor Collection

Sugar Cane brings us four new pieces for this month... Two denim shirts made of nice soft pliable denim in purple and light blue and two Wool Buffalo Check Shirt Jackets in blue and red.

We had these denim shirts last year and they sold out before they hit the online store mainly due to the fact that seeing denim shirts in this style in these colors is quite rare.

The Wool Buffalo Check Shirt Jackets are made in a 1930's style complete with super heavy duty worsted wool in a classic plaid, two open-top pockets, red chainstitching, bakelite style buttons, and authentic labeling.

Diesel especially loves the purple denim shirt and the red wool shirt jacket. You can't deny his love for well made work-wear.

These four shirts are now available in our online store, check the store for more photos and specs.
