66 is tapered. Roughly the hem is about the same size as the 47, but the 47 is much tighter above the knee. Perhaps the 54? 54 is also tapered, but slimmer than the 66. Sizing up with the 54 you may get what you want.post #963 of 12469/21/12 at 9:21ampost #964 of 12469/21/12 at 10:00am
37´s are baggier. The even earlier models are generally even baggier (eg early 201´s, the late 1800s models). Love the 33s, very antifit and light weight denim, my favourite summer pants for the last 7 years or so.post #965 of 12469/22/12 at 3:18amQuote:
Given this I always thought it was funny that the 1878 Pantaloon was such a slim & tapered fit; especially seeing has how the denim overalls as they were called, were literally worn over the work pant. However, I do have to note that the 1878 was never originally released, but rather created for LVC from an archival pattern that was found.
Speaking of slim LVC fits, we recently got the 1978 501 in the shop (little "e" red tab, sulfur as opposed to nat. indigo dye, slight taper) and I'm still trying to figure out how much I really like them. At first they were a little weird because I wasn't used to seeing the hairy cone mills/sulfur dye combo (though I'm not sure if LVC uses nat. indigo dye at all anymore?), but i must admit, they're growing on me quite a bit.post #966 of 12469/22/12 at 5:52pmpost #967 of 124610/1/12 at 9:45pmpost #968 of 124610/6/12 at 11:49ampost #969 of 124610/7/12 at 9:34amQuote:
I'd be completely confident going to LVC for hemming. You'd think (hope) that the people who make the product would know best practice...post #970 of 124610/23/12 at 8:56pm
I recently came to possess a pair of 1947 501 STF in 33w38l. They have only been hot soaked, and they shrunk down to about a 30"w36"l. Right now, I can get into them fine, and they fit perfectly (except for the length). Since they were just soaked and would seem to be at their smallest, would it be advisable to get the next size down to accommodate stretching, or should I keep them as is?post #971 of 124610/23/12 at 10:53pmpost #972 of 124610/24/12 at 4:44pmQuote:Originally Posted by JugglEvan

did you happen to measure the 33w before the soak. i had heard to allow for 2 inch, but 3 sure sounds like a lotpost #973 of 124610/24/12 at 9:08pmQuote:
I purchased them from someone who bought a tagged size 33x38 (didn't measure actual) and hot soaked them and they got too small for them and just were put into storage. I did my own additional hot soak and then tried them on.
Also, at its current "30 inch waist", it stretches well enough to fit my ~32" waist perfectly when worn at proper rise height. The 30" is measured without me pulling on the waistband at all.post #974 of 124610/29/12 at 8:51pm
