***The official LVC thread*** - Page 61

post #901 of 1170

thank you.

 

not looking for a snug fit, if anything I could live with a bit looser than how the 34" fit me pre shrink.

 

do you think sizing up to 36" would be rediculously big, or just a bit loose in the waist, something a belt could easily handle? or am I just out of luck that they don't make a 35?

 

thanks again.

 

Josh

Hey everyone, curious about experiences with non-denim LVC. Prices on t-shirts and buttondowns are ridiculously expensive - are they produced domestically? Are people generally satisfied with their purchases? I read the last 10-15 pages of the thread and didn't find much. There was one photo of the '20s white henley that looks nice but that's about it. Unionmade, etc. sell a lot of LVC that looks nice but the fit would have to be perfect to justify paying $95 for a t-shirt, $215 for a buttondown, $300 for a jacket.

This is a good question, and I was wondering the same myself. I'll have an answer for you regarding the '60s tee sometime next week, as I finally decided to pull the trigger on one from Unionmade after much hemming and hawing.

Stay tuned…

only the white t-shirts (although not ALL white t-shirts) and the "deadstock" or "rigid" sunset chambray and the "deadstock" or "rigid" shorthorn are made in the usa as far as I know.

I own the sunset chambray and really want the long-sleeve white sunset henley, but, beyond that, nothing from the non-denim range really does it for me, especially given the high retail prices

I've bought a few of the 1960's striped tees. Quality is great, vintage feel for sure. I sized "up" to medium, but I'm sort of between sizes now as I've been hitting the gym. Small fit me but a bit too tight and short in the arms.

Love them though. I'm gonna try out a 1950's sportswear tee again. The sleeves on those are weird and don't work for everyone but I've bulked up a bit so I'm hoping it will.

What do you guys think about LVC washed jeans it's good or not

 

and i'm so confuse about these pair 

 

Their name is the same but the picture look so difference

Right now i would like to buy new jeans RRL LVC or APC which one i have to buy

The gumbo wash is on sale at mrporter, though its probably long sold out by now. The wash is more like a mix between the two sites selling it. The contrast levels on the tresbien are much higher than in reality, and the cultizm is a little flat and dull. Haven has a pretty accurate color of the jean: http://shop.havenshop.ca/products/1967-505-0217-gumbo

If you are looking for washed jeans, LVC or RRL are great, APC doesn't have the best washed jeans. It all boils down to fit, and for me most of the RRL jeans have huge pockets which make the ass look baggy.

And then i'm not familiar with LVC how to choose the size

 

i wear APC and RRL in 28 in straight leg and tapper leg in 29

Measure self.

Measure jeans.

Buy what fits.

Sizing is as follows

1947 501- True to size
1954 501- True to size
1967 505- Size 1-2 up depending on how big your legs are

True to size is relative though. For example, 501's (both 1954 and 1947) size 32 measure around 15.5-16 at the waist depending on the wash. This makes it fit more like a tagged 31, however outside of the waistband the jean fits like a 32 assuming you can squeeze into the waist which will likely stretch.

This is true, as long as you're buying recent seasons. Earlier deadstock groups will be sized differently. When I first bought '47s you had to size up because they were undersized.

This is very helpful. Thanks. Just would like to hear from maybe one more source on this. I'm interested in the 1967 505 Joey wash at TBS (since the price is killer). I'd love to know I won't have to end up exchanging across the pond. I'm a 32 in the 1947 501 Rough rinse. Will a 33 in the 505 do? I have pretty decent sized thighs. Is the 505 fit not something I should be considering?
post #914 of 1170
33 or 34. I can normally do a 32 in lvc or levis but sized up to 34 on the gumbos. I have the package waiting for me at home, and will update with how it fits later tonight.

I'd also add that the 1960 605's fit about one size smaller than tagged (at least in the waist, the rest seems to fit quite slim but TTS).

Related to that...Anyone know of shops that stock washed versions of the 605? (other than mr porter and unionmade)
