I have found the LVC jeans waist to be more true to size versus the mainstream jeans. So i would wear a 36 in LVC versus a 34 in the mainstream 505 cut. With the mainstream 505 you need to watch the label as you will have 2 different waists - "sits below waist" - newer cut and "sits at waist" older cut we all (or most) grew up with. I am good with the "sits at waist" cut in the mainstream 505 as it is what i have been used to for 35 years. many of the large department stores have a good selection to try on for the mainstream jeans whereas the LVC 1967, 1954 etc may not be found locally.
hope this helps.
Couple questions. Are all LVC 501s unsanforized except for the rinsed versions? I'm looking for a loose or regular tapered jean and found the 54 501 and 66 501 to match that fit, what is the difference between the two fits? Measurements seem to say the 54 is slightly slimmer. Are there any models that fit similar? And finally, is there much difference between the rinsed and rigid versions except the pre-wash? Thanks.
