I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1243

post #18631 of 20635
Nah, I got them new in a Levi's store (before they took it out of the mall ;_;). Small case "e", both sides (one upside down, I think). It was basically just their line of in-store 501s a few summers ago, which was cool because it was just as I was starting to get into denim. They might have sold them at other stores, like Macy's and other department stores, too. I think they still had some of them out the following year... I think I saw some kind of deep, dark blue ones that were STF (but slimmer, like they weren't?) with both black patches and beige...one might have had the XX on it like mine does, but I don't remember for sure (the sales rep said they were the same jeans, but I don't remember. I think if there was a difference on the tag, the black had the XX, the beige didn't). They switched back to those awful cards for the most part, as you know, and it's kind of pissed me off, and is part of the reason I have not bothered to buy a new pair of cheap jeans lately.


I guess I could try emailing Levi's and seeing if they can give me any info on the color.

Is it fine that I keep my jeans on one hook? I'm afraid of the repeated stress and weight is gonna kill the pants.

I have emailed Levi's with regards to questions , like the Levi 201 Buckleback jeans , & they
apologized , but it was no longer in stock. The main reason I like this style is that it sits more
on the waist as oppose to the hips ( old fashion nod[1].gif) & the fact that there were copper
rivets on the back pockets. Aero Leather in Europe has some vintage Levi's for $$. I wasn't
too keen on shipping from overseas . Recently , I found the LVC Levi's 501s Cone Mills &
although they're pricey…@ eBay , I got a good deal on a 1915 Levi's 501s Selvedge jeans .
This for me is the earliest style I own. The next ones will be the 1930s 501s. I like the fact that
these vintage denims are made in the USA or at least that's what the tags say !icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It's probably fine. I imagine light weight denim might do something funny after while, but if you haven't noticed anything by now, you're probably fine.

Yeah, I'm thinking about going with some 1940s era LVCs myself at some point. I was trying to decide last summer over those and Billy Reid's 501s, which have some quirky little touches I guess, and were around the same price, both USA made I believe. I ended up getting neither, but so goes it.

I was pretty surprised at the Lees J. Crew has now. There's something I didn't think I'd see myself saying, but they looked kind of neat online, at least. I think those are USA made, as well, but don't quote me on it.

How big of a deal is it for a tailor to tapper jeans? The leg openings on my jeans I wear the most are looser then I would like.
post #18637 of 20635

I'm 35 and haven't worn jeans since I was a kid. All of the different cuts available are a bit confusing, so please help me make sure I'm not embarrassing myself.

I bought these two pairs. The first two pictures are slim straight fit and the second two are standard straight fit.


 

 

 



I never thought of myself as a slim fit kind of guy, but I think the first pair fits better. The second pair seems too baggy. I'm also not wild about the color or the horizontal lines faded into the front of the thighs in the second pair (I'm sure there's a term for that, but I don't know it).

Please let me know what you think. Any feedback on the jeans or anything else would be greatly appreciated.

not a big deal at all, though i've heard of people having issues with having it done on the inseam. tapering on the outseam is much easier seeing as its just one stitch. messes up the selvedge line if you care about that though.

Not a big deal at all. If they are selvedge, ask if the tailor can tailor from the inseam

post #18640 of 20635
I was of the same opinion with regards to tailoring on the inside inseam which would alter the
selvedge on the inseam. But , the jeans were slightly baggy on the bottom portion. Everything
else was exactly what I liked in this brand style of jeans.
I was very happy to find that the tailor was able to take in on the inside & still maintain the
original style of the inseam. So , it can be done..with the right tailor .nod[1].gif

he is a good tailor...might as well have him hem them too so I dont have to have like 4 folds...too bad ive worn them for 10 months so the bottom will look a little messy

Think I saw somewhere xx represents where the denim is sourced from, might want to check up on that. In general I think xx is higher quality.

 

First five numbers on levi's tag are fit i.e. 00501 is 501, last four are style.

post #18643 of 20635
so I started wearing some raw denim and after about one or two days the knee area began to form. Today I dropped them a bit lower on the hip and I like where it is now. Will the knee reform?
post #18644 of 20635

Why aren't CITIZENS OF HUMANITY popular around here?

 

Is it the quality? the price? style?

 

 

I recently bought a couple of CoH jeans; 1 black and 1 cord. Both are extremely soft and comfortable.

What would some good business casual brands be?  I like the regular normal color throughout type jeans.
