Lvc, rrl both offer workwear button suspenders. It's funny, the pantaloons cry out for suspenders with the split waistband but they don't come with. I dunno why not

Super late on this, but they're actually pretty accurate for denim

I don't wear them with suspenders, the sinch in the back works very well and I just tighten it up. I like the look with suspenders so maybe one day. You could probably get the suspenders from one of the webshops, I saw leather suspenders on Cultizm that looked really good but they were expensive.

Is it difficult to add buttons to the pantaloons like this?

No,

I've done it.
I actually have a pair of the pantaloons with attached suspender buttons in 34 that I would let go.

I've soaked them, but they are too big for me.

They are like new.

yeah, it's not hard.

 

funny they used riveted buttons on the fly but i don't think those were around back then, all the buttons would've been sewn on afaik. but either sew em on (poke around to see examples) or pay a local denim shop to put some legit riveted ones on.

 

i'd stay away from the snap-together bachelor buttons cause i'd be paranoid they'd come undone and stab me

(X-post from thrift thread.)

I just kopped 3x NWOT LVC jeans at a consignment for the same price as their regular Levi's. (They're returnable.) One pair is 1st quality (LVC stamp on inside pocket). The other 2 are irregular (no LVC stamp, irregular stamp on pocket, torn care tag).

Are they legit? Can anyone identify the style?

1st quality pair: (2 "normal" sized back pockets. Hidden rivets. Lighter/softer denim.)


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Irregular pairs: (2 longer back pockets. No hidden rivets. Heavier denim. Evidence of cinch that has been removed.)


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




I can't find an exact match for any of them on the LVC site. The single needle arcuate + small-e red tab doesn't seem right historically. I can't find LVC that used a black patch, either. But then again, why would someone make "irregular" fakes?

Edit: We've identified the first pair in the thrift thread as 1937 irregular or sample pair. They have rusted buttons like they should be distressed, but the denim is raw and much larger than the tagged size.

I'm still trying to figure out what the 2nd pair is. They're not 1890 (double back pockets), and they're not 1905 (pockets are longer). I don't see any rivets, so I'm wondering if they're a sample, or if they were pulled from production before the rivets were added. They also have rusted/distressed hardware.

I tried to be funny by demanding an address but it wasn't really funny at all. Sorry guys.

Hi. So after reading every post in this thread and looked elsewhere on the internet, I'm still not entirely sure. So i have some 1955's. They are 33 inches in the waist. My waist is about 32 inches, so they if they shrunk 2 inches or so in the waist the fit would be more or less ok in the waist (a bit relaxed maybe but that's ok). However does the same amount of shrinking extend to the seat and thighs or is it literally just the waistband? This is the one peice of information I'm finding difficult to find. Basically, if there the fit in the seat/hips is too relaxed now, will it still be after shrinking?

Denim only shrinks along the warp. Look at your jeans and really pay attention to how they're made... everywhere the indigo yarns run up and down will shrink along that dimension. Make sense? So denim will be taken up through the thighs and seat, but only because of the taper. Mostly it will be the "garter" formed by the waistbnd, yoke, and pockets. And the overall inseam.

Thanks for the reply. I just wanted to be sure before returning the jeans or not.

I'm pretty sure all LVC jeans have a leather patch on the back, those seem to look like cardboard. Rivets were exposed until 1937 and the double arcuate started at 1947 so the second pair would be between those years but even then little E wasn't used until 1971 so the dates don't match. . I would say both are fakes due to so many irregularities, even sample sales would have the items as true to what it would like like on the shelf and not have the irregularities from the pairs above.

I think I agree with this one, If you can't 100% definitively say they're real I'd lean towards both being fake

the 37s are 100% legit, without a doubt. this is known.
