    Heard LVC is a mess now I will not be copping.
    ?
    Complete raw range now always available, made in the US;
    New sunset shirts;
    Obscure new items for denim nerds, like the cotton duck closed front jumper;
    New, smaller organisation which hopefully means more attention to detail;
    new denims, like the Cone 1915, among the best LVC or anyone else for that matter has produced
    LVC finally available in the US again.

    On the downside, there no evidence they're sorted their pathetic sizing issues, and there are rumours prices will go up at some point. But in any case LVC look to be in better shape than in the last five years .

    Email your retailer to find actual size, and then best bet is to size up by one inch - TTS if you really want them skinny, altho the 66 model is better for downsizing as the thighs aren't so slim. Older 1947 production is usually undersized by one inch, as above, recent production seems to be true to size, for the 32W at least. But the only safe way is to check.

    Cheers for your help, Pablo.

    I did it. Pulled the trigger on the 1947's.

    I'm a true W31, so went for W33/L36 and plan on soaking once right away. Will post pictures!

    Good luck. I hope that was a measured 33, not a nominal 33, which is likely bigger.

    Not sure, I just followed Cultizm's advice blindly. He said 33-34, so I went on the slimmer end.

    Pardon the total noob question: Which, if any of these, is closest to the current Levi's 505 fit? Obviously not a popular cut among SFers, but I'm a big boy and dig the fit a lot.

    You do know that there is a 1967 505 in production? If you downsize 1 or 2 sizes on it, it will fit a lot like the present 505's.

    Or else you could go for the 1954 501z - here I would recommend going 1 size up. They have a bit of room around the thighs, which is good for us bigger guys. This model has become the favourite of all my LVCs

    You could also buy the 1966 501 - buy true to size or downsize 1. They also taper from the knee down and have more room around the thighs. They get quite frequent wear in my LVC rotation.



    Please remember that LVC sizing has been a bit inconsistent over the recent seasons, so you better get some measurements before ordering.

    I went into Cinch in London and saw them up close - they look really, really, really, really baggy. Like, really baggy.
