    Let that be a lesson to you, Levi's: you can make a hilariously shitty product, charge way too much for it, and people will still buy it and write blog posts to advertise for you as they try and rationalize the entire mess to themselves.

    The prices are reasonable, in line with Nudie and APC (and running half as much as the Japanese brands these days). In the long LVC thread at SuFu there aren't a lot of complaints (and some real fans of the brand).

    Not sure where you're getting that info. At over $200+, LVC is most definitely not half of Japanese bands at all (if you assume Jap brands are $225-$280)

    For the Philadelphia area market, Sugarcube has been asked to rep the LVC line exclusively in Philly. They expect to be stocking 1944, 1947 and 1966 raws only. All sizes. Inventory due this spring.

    The last time LVCs were available in the US (about a year and a half ago) they were retailing for $175. That will almost certainly change with the re-introduction this Spring, but I'm sure that's the reason for the original quote regarding prices.

    Nice! About time Philly starts getting some good brands.

    Hard to find Japanese repros for $225 anymore - even basic Sugar Cane's are $275 and the 'premium' brands are over three bills. (current exceptions: Fullcount/Warehouse from BiG)

    I paid ~$150 from Cultizm (plus shipping, but here I'd pay tax or shipping) for some LVC '47s in late 2008.

    Paul T at Superdenim is saying prices will go up - but they're still likely to be 2/3 the cost of Japanese brands.

    I finally soaked my 47's after deciding not to sell them. Pre-soak they were 27x33 (tagged 28x34)...after 28x31. I wore them in the tub during the soak and then hang dried after around 25 minutes. I would really recommend buying TTS or one up in the 47's

    I think the '67 505s are the only raw jeans that are not made in the USA for this upcoming collection. Most of the tops and other non-denim items are usually made in Turkey or Portugal.

    I just bought some '67 505's from Cultizm a few weeks ago and the tag says Made in USA. Maybe it was old stock?
