New SF member and not sure where to find the answer you're looking for? Have a quick question that doesn't belong in a current thread? Welcome, you found the right place.

This is a weekly thread where new users can ask quick questions and get a solid answer. If a thread already exists that would be more helpful, we will point you in the right direction. The only stupid question is the one that isn't asked.....so ask away!

Hello!

So recently I bought a vintage Levi's denim jacket from a local vi rage shop! Everything in the sho is hand picked by the owners from around Canada! Anyway, I picked up this jacket, and I jut wanted to see if I could see how old the jacket is, and if it's a engine Levi's jacket or not! I noticed that on the infamous red tag on the chest pocket, the only thing it says is a "R" with a circle around it! Upon doing further research, I found out that apparently the company does that to 1 in every 10 jackets! I'm not sure if that's true or not. I've I clouded some pictures and I really hope someone could help me!

p.s. The jacket doesn't have any pockets on the hips, and I'm not sure if the stitching is double row or single row!

Thanks,
Olivia

Hey guys, I'm a newb just looking for feedback on the fit of this jacket. The arms look a little short to my eye but I'm not sure. The shirt underneath is shortsleeved so that's why there's no cuff coming out the bottom of the jacket. I'm also a newb to selfies so sorry for the poor quality pic.

Hey junco, can we get a better pic? You're not going to get any solid feedback based on that picture.

Bought some Japan Blue JBCD0463 Cote D'Ivoire (slim tapered) in size 29. The waist is a bit roomy, but the top block is snug; I can pinch away a good 2 inches from the waist, are these too roomy in the waist? I tried on a bunch of pairs, but this style (slim tapered) seemed to fit better. I'd like to get some opinions on how they fit.

Only you will know how they feel in the waist, but they look pretty snug in the hips. They definitely don't look like a bad fit....if you like the way they feel, keep them.

the waist is roomy, but, yes, the hips are snug, that's the main reason I couldn't size down in the waist. I do like the way they feel, snug, but not uncomfortable.

So the Santiags that are still on the store are going to remain at full retail until they sell out? Or are these being added to the permanent collection
