    Could not agree more... I'm on the hunt for summer colours, but these don't seem to come down in price like the darker washes. Great T-shirt pants.


    To Denim ^... Almost all the stores listed sell online, just click on the names given.

    I've just added a run-through of this spring's LVC range at loomstate.

    Some of the nicest items I've seen in recent years, especially this version of the Three Pleat 1874 jacket, in a new shade of cotton duck.

    [if there hasn't been a decision yet] The knit looks strange and old-fashioned. The black sweater would be much more versatile, assuming the weather would be cold enough to wear it.

    Pablo-T, I enjoyed reading your review. Thanks for that.
    Shepard456, I concur that the first is really a vintage piece and may be, depending on your personal style, a little hard to find occasions for wearing... it seems a little costume-y. The second's a more adaptable piece.

    Thanks. How do the rough rinse selvage 1947's compare to rigid? Is it a completely different jean or is the rough rinse just the raw that has been soaked? Thanks for any advice

    I haven't bought any LVCs before but I really like the pair on this guy:

    [​IMG]

    Apparently they're 501xx but I'm not sure what they are exactly.. they look like selvedge, but what wash? Are they the 1947s? Do I size up for them to fit like that?

    I'd love some advice :D :D thank you!

    Just bought a pair of 1944 rough wash, whatever that is, from Vente privee. STF. So what do I do with them shrink wise. Also, I bought my normal jean size. Was that a mistake?

    You're supposed to buy 1-2 sizes bigger for shrink to fit... It's a big component of the 'shrink' part.

    don't think any of the LVCs on vente were STF.

    just checked - yep, those are one wash, not STF

    So I'm ok? I figured I wouldn't have trouble flipping if if didn't work out, but I really want to wear them. And I'd never be able to afford lvc otherwise.

    Can anyone tell me about the rough rinse? I bought it because it was the darkest available.

    Actually, I just looked, and they're listed as STF. Rats.
