New Line of Levi's? - Page 3

post #31 of 42
At the pricepoint (at least Revolve's pricepoint), what is the incentive to get these over APC, 3Sixteen, Naked and Famous, etc? From what I'm reading, they're pretty meh.

Only one I can see is if you want washed vs. raw. Even for washed I actually like the APC Pioneer line better, but definitely not at $310!

Kind of disappointed that these are "imported". The Capital E's that I had at this price range were made in USA.

i saw these in person today at the good ole CO-OP. they look Capital E and Earnest Sewn had babies . . . albino babies at that, bc of the white tabs.

i think they went in the wrong direction with the branding on these. the white tab and distressed arcuate look really bad, and actually take away from the one thing that levi's has had going for it, which is their heritage and history.

i know they were probably trying to differentiate these from dept store line but there's gotta be a way to make a jean like 'more rich' and posh while still keeping the red tab and the stitched arcuate.

Just picked up a pair of Levis Made and Crafted straight legs. I bought these instead of the APC New Standard Straights. I think this was an ok buy due to price...128.00 due to "denim event" at Barney's. But, I will make Raleigh denim my next pair of jeans.

Looks to be an attempt to take Levi's more upscale to compete in the $150-200 market, but maybe these are actually better for some reason?

I saw these at their outlet store and immediately feel in love with them after i tried on the standard jean. The blue is really rich and deep without looking too dark. Unfortunately they didnt have my size though. I think the color was blue icon and happended to feel very course, maybe it was raw denim because the other levis jean was much softer. Im a big fan of levis so its great to experience them in high end quality.

I just posted a long story on Made and Crafted over on SUperfuture.

Made and Crafted is a very subtle range - but I'd differ from some of the previous assertions, I'd say they are indeed suitable for denimheads.

Here is some of the detailing on their chinos.



And behind that detailing is a complete story. IF you want to check it out, it's here, , while an overview of where the whole range is coming from starts here .

Levi's Made & Crafted has some sweet new shirts out for spring. These pics are from Rodengray.com so make sure you go there to buy if you want them. I hope it's ok to use there pics, if not I'll edit my post!

^They do look nice. I bought the chambray shirt two posts above you. Everything was top notch except i should have purchased a L instead of a M and ended up selling it.
