I've never heard of this line. Where does this lie on the hierachy?

this is the blue script label. It dates from the last few years when RL made its own stuff in the USA -- around 1995-6ish. It's the precursor to purple label. The USA stuff was made to reasonably high standards, and the blue script label above that. Not quite RLPL standards, but on par with current Polo blue label (Corneliani) in my experience. So, good stuff.

Edit: Oh, and shouts out to Ian, hbkshin, LeSacre and ESPECIALLY EazyE

Levis made and crafted is the forward thinking partner to levis vintage clothing. They're both controlled by levis xx.

I was pretty unimpressed with the one pair I've had, but I'll let 4chan explain:

I would totes rock it if it were my size Ala Jet Li from Fists of Furry!

Precursor to PL. Same quality to Blue Label.

Yeah, Made and Crafted ain't so great...I've not been a big fan of Levi's since their LVC line became stale...But if I ever pick up on a true vintage pair with rivets...OMG! Levi's all day! But nowadays, I'll stick to Momos at below retail rates unless I get super lucky and thrift a pair...

Phineas Cole and Isaia are my two favorite labels for classic tailored clothing. Sadly I've only found one Phineas Cole piece ever and it was in LA.

+1 for me as well! I only have a pair of PC flannel pants. They need some tailoring but very stylish and well made looking.

SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT that's awesome.

Luciano Barbera tie (my second LB ever)

Ben Silver spread collar (And of course in the process of taking the tag off I poke myself with the staple and bleed on the collar. Thankfully my girlfriend is smart and removed the blood with hydrogen peroxide. Direct quote, "I get enough period stains on clothes. I know how to remove blood.")




Hackett (first for me)

Regarding Made and Crafted Levis:

Quality is nothing special. I like the fit and some of the washes on the tack slim. I would not spend more than a quarter of retail for a new pair. The ones I have are usa made.

With that said I get tons of compliments from attractive ladies in their early 20s when worn. Hey maybe I need more.

^ Dude... LOL I seriously laughed pretty hard at your GF comment.
