the 62 ZXX cut only lasted a few years. Five I believe. It was the jean on the cover of the Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers album. The original LP, designed by Andy Warhol, had an actual zipper.

 

Nice, thanks for the knowledge bomb + I actually have the album with the working zipper

Went to the Levis STore in SF. They don't get the entire collection of LVC. I just don't get it when the flagship store in their own town doesn't have all the jeans. I was looking for the '62 raw ZXX. Had to order it from Mr Porter.

Dropped off two pairs of 10+ year old LVC 1947's for patching at the Levis Tailor Shop. Picking those up tomorrow.

Picked up a pair of 1947 501XX with a one wash. They were tagged 33 x 34 but the fit is more like 35 x 35 and a bit more trim in the leg than earlier editions of LVC '47's.


If any LVC fans are around San Francisco, they just moved the remaining stock of F/W2013 to the sale room in the back of the Levis Store on Market St. I picked up a pair of distressed 1954Zxx. They had been marked down 50% and then there was another 40% off that. They had a few styles. I think they had a heavily distressed '47.

How much did your 54Zs come out to be? Maybe feel a proxy coming on...

Ordered a pair of 34 x 34 1962 zxx from Mr Porter. I assumed there would be some vanity sizing, I.e. A 35w, but they measured 37"!!! At least Mr Porter makes it easy to return. Went for the 33x34 and keeping fingers crossed!

I recently ordered a pair of 1967 505 and I send them back. Nice cur, but to me these jeans are overpriced, it was like a regular Levi´s with better denim, the construction was pretty average.

Purchased about 8 items from the VP sale, rigid 201's, type 2 and type 3 jackets, and some 54 501z

Picked up the dark grey 50's crewneck sweatshirt from the vente prive sale. It was sold out when i checked yesterday but then i checked today and a L popped up so i bought it with quickness. Im wondering how the sizing is. For reference I wear a large in Sunspel and Kent Wang Polos. Large in Epaulet shirts. But in traditional levis and mall brand stuff Im consistently a medium in shirts and sweats. Medium in American Apparel hoodies for reference. Does LVC fit slightly slimmer than or would I need a medium? 

 

Thanks, searched the thread for sizing for shirts but not much came up. 

 

Also, how are the pocket t's? size down? same as sweatshirt? 

 

Thanks
