Hey experts!
I am looking into my first pair of LVCs and I'm trying to decide which model to go with.

First of all, I am 5'8' and normally wear a 32x30 or 32x32. (31 waist if I can find it!!)

I like a slim fit with a bit of a taper at the ankle.

I don't fill out the butt in many jeans so anything that is boxy in the rear or large back pockets or flares at the hips is not good for me.

511's are too slim for my taste. 514's are pretty typical to the fit that I prefer.

With all that being said, which LVC do you recommend? I think the 1967 505 may be a good choice but the 1947 or 1954 501 could be as well, from what I gather.

Thank you in advance.

I own all three from various years but none from recent editions. I have 1947's that vary in fit from different seasons (from slightly slimmer to slightly more loose) so go by the fit of what is now available in the store.

My experience is that 1947's and 67 505's fit about the same in the leg and have very little taper. They have a nice, somewhat trim straight cut. . I think it is flattering on most people. The 1955 is more full in the leg and thigh. If you want a tapered leg go to another more modern cut in another brand. But with tapered legs, in most brands, you also usually get a lower rise.

Here is a chart but it does not give measurements. You can judge the fit in relation to each other by the photos.

Jd5016, in LVC I think you're looking at the 1954 501z. That's if you want a decent taper. If you're fine with the 514 fit at the hem, then the 1967 505 is probably a good choice as well.

So the 1954 501 xxz looks like the slimmest 501 in LVC collection, anyone wears them and can share his impression?
Do you think i have to go true the size with 1954 501 or they will shrink a lot?
thanks

sorry if this has been covered a million times already.

 

lvc 1955 501 in 34 x 32 waist fits me perfectly without shrinkage. I've got a 1/2 inch or so extra in the waist, but the thighs and hips are perfect (thighs and butt are bigger than my waist from lifting, always an issue buying pants, and the '55 are really the first pair I've found in a while that I really like the fit of). Spoke to a few people (levis store and cultizm rep) and both recommended that I get the 34, cold soak and wear dry. I'm concerned that they may end up too tight, but don't have any experience with them. I've been assured that the 36 would end up too loose.

 

anyone have experience to offer?

 

thank you very much for any info.

post #899 of 1170
Based on my LVC experience, they might end up a bit too tight, but depends on how much extra fabric you have in the tighs, as the waist usually stretches out with wear.

From my experience, the waist doesnt shrink more than an inch or so. I have several pairs which ive washed a bunch of times, that fit similarly to after the first soak. The inseam will shrink though...

It's fine. With a little more effort you can stretch the waist back to it's pre-soak size.
