Looking for a more relaxed Levi Repro

    Was looking at the Levi's store for a pair of jeans the other day but nothing really caught my eye. A few simple fits were OK but I guess I when it comes to jeans I'm looking to go big or go home.

    Thought I'd looke into seeing what sort of Levi's repro models were available that had a more loose fit that some of the stuff I've been seeing recently.

    Saw one of the Capital E jeans at the store today and they looked alright, maybe the Alambra (sp?) cut?

    A quick look on the Vintage Levi's site shows that the 1930's 501 are a looser fit as well, and I remember one of the 40's was a loose one as well.

    Are there any other repro Levi models that are cut more relaxed that the current styles? Doesn't have to be a LVC model, it could be something done by another company. I know you guys are pretty high on the 45rpm jeans, although I was under the impression those were slimmer and are definitely pricey.

    Can be straight or a boot-leg cut. I've had good success with the PDC LTD and Diesel Ravix models, as well as a Joie cut I can't name, for reference.

    Looking for some help from the Denim Gods here on SF to guide the way.

    Thanks guys,

    Another loose-fitting 501 repro is the 1955, as well as the 1800s. I suggest searching rakuten for various repro models. Most stores often have a full-body shot of models wearing them.

    Yeah, the 1955's are looser than the 1947's. If you're a small size, I'm selling some 55's in the Buying/Selling forum. [​IMG]
