post #916 of 1170
Crazy...we've had a bunch of guys come in and try on 1947 501s and pretty much all of them decided to size up. And these guys ran the gamut of "average" build, short & skinny, tall & muscular and everything in between. Who knows, maybe the guys we had come in just can't get over that initial tight around the waist phase. Are you fellas accounting for assumed shrinkage post-wash or soak?

The conversation started from a discussion about the washed denim. For raws, definitely sizing up. Washed tts is usually fine - no?

Personally, I went TTS in the raws and they were fine... shog[1].gif

Got my stuff in today. Sized up one on the 1954 501z, fit is perfect. Sized up two (1ish tag really) on the 1967 505 and it fits fine, maybe a tad big in the waist.

This is good to know as I determined my next LVC is the '54 501z. How is the cut overall compared to the '47?

roomier top block and very tapered leg. Not as flattering on me as the 47, but a nice quirky fit that is much more comfortable. I don't recommend wearing them slouchy as it gives a pretty big diaper ass look, so get the longer inseam.

I suspect sizing up is necessary then, just as you confirmed - my '47s were just about as tight as a straight leg should be in the thigh.

Here's some cool footage of Mildred Bolen, one of the most experienced loom operators at Cone, who make all the denim for the post-1901 501.

How much does the LVC 47 stretch? I was told it would stretch an inch around the waist. I got 29, which is a little tight. A little stretch would be perfect.

Question for the team here - i just ordered a pair of LVC 1947 501s from Gilt (in "ruffed" color);  two quetions

 

1) I assume these are first quality items (never purchased from gilt before)?;  i'm worried that they are some lower quality version - anyone with past experience that can comment woudl be greatly appreciated

 

2) on gilt's sight they say they are made in the united states - can someone confirm that "washed" lvc can be made in the US - i read someplace else that all "washed" LVCs were made in turkey  (i call gilt customer service and they said they were made in the US)

 

thanks!

I will ship to the UK via the post office. Buyer pays shipping. I will ship to the US, again, buyer pays the shipping on the shirt.

I will not accept returns on this item so please ensure you are confident about sizing before you buy.

I wish to keep my 100% positive feedback so please give me the chance to settle any issues you have.

Thanks and happy bidding!"

Just to answer your question. We've got a few pairs of the washed LVC 1947 501 and 1954 501z in store now (Remember Me & Phantom Wash, respectively). Both pair are in fact made in Turkey, while the 1954 501z Phantom is noted as being washed & finished in Italy. I doubt you were given a lower quality version from Gilt, as I imagine they would have made this clear to you before purchasing.

On another note, we've got some SS12 pieces up to 60% off right now and rigid 1954 & 1947 (these two not posted on our site) at 50% off. Pretty good deals if anyone is interested.
