post #766 of 1173
okay so some help needed in ID'ing a pair of jeans. i was checkin out some LVC at a levis store in malibu last weekend and the salesmen was telling me about how he picked up a pair of LVCs that are considered the first "skinny" jeans. they were def soft and distressed, not raw at all. i know this isn't much to go on but hey who knows....

anyone have an idea?

What the stock on sizes like at the SF Levis in the LVC denim? The generally keep most sizes stocked well, or is it hit and miss?

The popular sizes/models can sell out quickly. I would call the store and speak with the LVC guys in the tailoring department. They (unlike the rest of the store) know about LVC . They are expecting the new line soon if it hasn't arrived already. That would be the ideal time to get your best size and model selection.

Can anyone definitively identify where the 4170 coded jeans are made? By 4170 I mean the code stamped on the back of the top button of the button-fly. 4170 is also printed on the "how to wash" tag located inside the jeans. I've heard they are rumored to be made by Caitac Garment in Gardena, CA, but I called them today and they said they don't make anything for Levis or LVC.

Also, if the jeans are 501xx Levis, and have a 4170 stamped on that button along with every other detail a genuine 1947 501xx repro would have (capital E red tab, 2 horse patch, red selvage on coin pocket and outseam, zinc buttons, chainstitched hem, gold colored thread, silver lining on the wash tag, characteristic twist on the outseam), does that necessarily mean they were made by LVC? Is it possible that Levis commissioned someone else to go through with all of this besides LVC??

I ask because I have a pair from J Crew that have 855010001 printed on the wash tag with all of the above details, rather than the typical 47501... printed on LVC repros. And there were no LVC tags on the jeans when they were purchased new from the store.

Thanks

Jeans w/ 4170 code are definitely made in Cali, but I'm not sure exactly where (Denim Tech maybe?). It's possible that the J. Crew exclusive is exclusive due to their wash and the "85501..." number is the code for this particular model. These appear to be two different codes, one for the factory and one for the model.

I think back in the day, the product code of LVC was 7 digits...the first two representing the model year, the next three the lot number and the last two the wash. It used to be that rigid/raw 1947 501s would have the product code, 4750117.

Not sure I answered your question, but I gave it a shot.

Thanks, it does answer some of my questions. How do you definitely know they are made in California? And to my 2nd part, would Levis commission anyone other than LVC to make these particular repros? I don't think it would make sense to do so, but that's why I'm asking.

Would anyone happen to have (or know where may be found) BiG-style measurements for the '54 501z in a 34-waist? I'm wanting to see how exactly it lines up to my '47s in the same tagged size.

What year 501s would not have Cinch and suspender buttons and be on the more tapered side. I like my jeans to be a little fitted and Cultizm gives little to no description on the difference in years. If anyone could please advise in the best years / best fits or any help please I don't want to drop 250$ if there is a better one on there. Thank you, you guys are always such a big help and great on helping us newbies smile.gif

Hi everyone

I need some help! Im having to do a presentaion for an interview and im doing it on denim and also about being denim head! I just wanted to get some different perspectives other than my own. I was wondering what peoples fav jean is and also at what lengths people have gone to get that special pair. Im also curious to know peoples opinion on washing denim. How often do you wash yours if ever? Please any response would be very helpful. Also if anyone has other ideas on what I could do would be most welcome. Thanks!

You'd probably get better answers asking this in one of the SW&D simple questions/answers thread, if it hasn't already been asked.

Here and here.

I think the 1954 501Z would be the best jean for you. They fit comfortably in the seat & thigh and taper beautifully from the knee downward. If a great looking pair of tapered denim is what you're looking for, the 1954 501Z is for you. PM or give me a call at the store (check sig) if you need any further assistance.

Just took some measurements for you from a pair we've got in the shop.

Waist: 17.5"
Inseam: 34"
Front Rise: 12"
Back Rise: 15.5"
Thigh: 11"
Leg Opening: 7.75"


Disclaimer: Sorry I haven't taken any photos just yet of our LVC offerings, I'll be sure to get to that this week. For now we've got the 1947 501 and 1954 501Z in stock. Much more to come in our second delivery.
