    Hey,
    I discovered a Levi's shop in London where you can buy a custom jean (made to measure)! Well, what's the interest of buying such a product? As the jeans will evoluate (in fit) in time!!!

    There is one in San Francisco that does the same. I believe prices are $750-950.

    Yes, San F, NY and London have a 'Master tailor'! I think that it just marketing bullshit! They make the jeans with a sanforised denim (cone, Turkish mill and Kaihara mill) that is going to evoluate in time (in size)....what's then the point of making a custom denim? Plus, the price is [​IMG]! I mean for a similar cone denim, you can buy ROY denim but for just 345$, in my eyes, ROY offers the best finished jeans.

    The raw 1947 LVC are shrink-to-fit..when new. If you buy a used version, just take your normal size.

    These are brand new but are a 'jacob wash'. Does that mean they are STF or take my normal size? Sorry, but I'm not in to denim so not familiar with some of the terms.

    The product is unworn but the denim have already a life behind! Take you normal size, the denim is not going to change in size (just like a non selvedge denim)
