    Speaking of which, they have a 30% off sale on select LVC models and 50% off Evisu.

    As far as I can tell, almost all LVCs run 1-2" larger than tagged. And, don't believe the statement that they shrink 2" in the waist. They may shrink an inch, but they'll also stretch. That, along with the short inseams (for STF), makes them virtually unwearable for me.
    Correction. Some of the early models have waists that measure four inches larger than tagged. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This just seems way too confusing and for the prices, I'll keep shopping at BiG! What the heck? Why does it have to be such a pain to actually give Levis money?

    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.
