post #1201 of 1205

Does anyone know how to tell if a pair of the 1967 505 is made from the Japanese or Cone Mills denim? They seem to have the same lot number.

They measured 16" before wash and they measured 16" after; 16" is a little tight though - 16.5" is better for me; I bought the 32 because I read they should stretch at least an inch in the waist - just wondering how long that normally takes. I mean I can wear them, but they'd be more comfrtoable with a bit room.

One thing I didn't appreciate until recently is if you want to stretch the waist, don't wear a belt.

Nor I. Thanks for sharing that one.

In my experience, the LVC stuff does stretch in the waist, but it can take a while.

I ordered the type II from the Levi web and it came in the mail today. There was no sizing information, I usually take a M so that's what I got.

The jacket came with a tag that said - for jackets you should get one size larger than your normal size.

You think they would have put that on the web site. Anyway it goes back and I'll order an L.
