    anyone actually wash his 551Zs?

    on oipolloi's site it says you should dry clean only since the fabric is shrink to fit but in doing so it will fuck up the zipper and it will be all jacked up?

    do the lvc pieces have copper rivets?

    you mentioned it buggering up the zipper , dry cleaning would probably not be the best on the copper and might discolor the denim at points of strain.

    I can't speak for the 551Zs, but I owned a pair of Samurai 505s before and they had a zipper with unsanforized and after I soaked/washed them the zipper still worked fine. It just may not zip as fast as it did because you start to get a little curving of the zipper teeth along the fabric.

    Ok, i'm going to get some slack for this and go against the grain here.. but personally for me, I don't see the appeal of wearing a pair of jeans anywhere near that dirty.

    i think that's pretty gross as well

    I've washed mny zipper Lees which were supposedly Sanforized - but shrank. They were fine. Wash them cold and make sure the zipper is up when you wash them and I don't think it will buckle too much.

    Real men do work that makes their clothes dirty, real men stink of cigars and whiskey. The appeal is not being a dainty pussy.

    Anyone have those 1915 LVCs that Cultizm is carrying?

    They look really great.

    Right now I'm looking at a pair of LVC 1944 501's and I'm having trouble which size to get with these. My Crate Route's in size 33 are a perfect fit for me if that could be a reference point. The measurements are the same minus the higher rise on the 501's. Should I get the 34's in the 1944s?

    How should I go about sizing the 1947 501's or 1967 505s for a slim new standard type fit.

    Fear not I will be carrying LVC for spring 10 when everything launches again in the states.

    I will start with the first jean made buy levis and go up to the newest 501.
    Europe/Japan has always have a bigger interest in Levis than the states that's why the LVC division was moved to brussels.
    If you have any questions about the spring 10 collection check my blog in a couple weeks

    I will have some sick ass pics for you with a little history lesson.
    Best,

    Very interesting. Know if you'll be carrying the 1944s?

    Are both the 1947 501s and 1967 505s raw?
    How do these run?

    the 505's are sanforized i believe. 505's bit smaller than tagged and the fit is slim. Curious about the rise though.

    '47s are raw shrink-to-fit and run true to size (pre-soak). My '47s are tagged 34x36 (I'm a 33 or 34 waist) and, after two washes in 9 months, now measure about 33.25 in the waist.

    How about the LVC 517's? Anyone know where one can procure a pair of these?

    I have a pair that are slightly too big in the waist and I've been looking for a pair of 30 or 31 waist for months now with no luck. They aren't selvage so I guess that turns a lot of people off around here, but they're made with beautiful denim nonetheless.

    Where the hell can I get these?

    Wrong, the 505's are true to size; the rise is medium (like 10.5); have you ever actually had these jeans?

    What is the slimmer of the 1947 501s and 1967 505s?
