I put this up over at 'superdenim'
Well, here's the answer to my question...from Levi: I'm interested in a number of items...the two shirts, the 646s and the 19thc jacket (depending on how much they 'destroy' the garments and depending on if they actually make these items available)

Below are the products that we are currently manufacturing for our
Levis(r) Vintage Collection of fall 2006.

1947 501(r) Jean

Model Information
Slim leg with twisted side seam Big "E" Red Tab(tm) and concealed rivets on back pockets Button fly with Osco zinc buttons When World War II was over it was time to bring the 501(r) jean into the modern era. It features the double-needle Arcuate stitching design and, of course, the Capital "E" Red Tab(tm), but the cinch, suspender buttons and crotch rivet went away. Shorn of excess, it now reflects a more modern sensibility.

Fabric Information100% Cotton

Denim Deadstock will shrink approx 2" in the waist and 2" in length if home laundered.

1955 501(r) Jean

Model Information
The 1955 501(r) jean belongs to the era of the rebel, the motorcycle rider, the bad boy of the blackboard jungle. It has the leather patch, double-sided Capital E(tm) Red Tab(tm) and subtle styling for the slimmer, rugged guy of the 50's, with the perfect hole at the knee and aggressive whiskering on the upper thigh. This is our "Faithful" finish, in remembrance of America's cultural rebels. Instead of being folded, the cuffs have been carefully rolled up to hit at just the right spot on the boots.

32" inseam, when cuffed = 30"34" inseam, when cuffed = 32"

Fabric Information 100% Cotton Denim

1966 646(tm) Jean

Model Information
The year was 1966 and the bellbottom had gradually narrowed to a barely there flare, captured in the popular 646(tm) fit.

Fabric Information100% Cotton Denim
Deadstock will shrink approx 2" in the waist and 2" in length if home laundered.

Bunkhouse Shirt Circa 1911

Model Information
Levi's Vintage Clothing recreates the work wear found in a bunkhouse left behind in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, circa 1911. The grey chambray work shirt slides over the head. The original owner replaced a few of the fasteners, and so did we - the buttons are made from mother of pearl, river shell and wood.

Fabric Information100% Cotton Denim

Authentic Denim Western Shirt

Model Information
From the Levi's(r) Authentic Denim Western Wear line of the 1950s, this faded denim work shirt encapsulates the motor love of an era. This classic shirt features two chest pockets with silver snaps, a Western style back yoke and a replicated period label with short-horn logo imagery.

Fabric Information100% Cotton Denim

1967 Type 3 Jacket

Model Information

The Type 3 or Trucker Style jacket made its debut in 1962 and by 1967 it was the ultimate of all denim jackets on the market. Perfectly recreated here in rigid, dark Dead Stock denim that's ready to get worn in, the jacket features front V-seams that echo its characteristics pointed pocket flaps.

Fabric Information100% Cotton Denim

If home laundered, jacket will shrink in the chest about 1 1/2", front length about 1/2" and the sleeves about 3/4".

1897 Blanket Lined Pleated Blouse

Model Information
This blanket lined 19th century jacket, or blouse as it was called then, was the forerunner of the iconic Levi's(r) denim jackets. It has sewn down front pleats, two large riveted chest pockets with silver buttons, silver buttons down the placket, and copper rivets at the cuff vents for added strength. A cinch at the back allows for an adjustable fit. The blanket lining adds warmth and softness and a dash of true old west flavor.
