Levis LVC 1933 501XX jeans reproduction review

I bought these Levis LVC 1933 501XX jeans in December of 2012.  They’re made from denim from the Cone Mills and were made in Turkey. A little over two and a half years on, they’re still hanging on, barely.  I’ve worn them pretty hard in that time.  In the wood shop, metal shop, while doing construction, while building architectural models, etc.  So they’ve had a rough life.  That said, they’ve still worn out faster than any other pair of jeans I have owned.  They’ve worn through in the crotch, knees, thighs and seat.  A rivet fell out of the pocket fairly early on, the stitching has come undone on about half of the pocket accurate, and there are many spots worn so thin that I’m sure another round of patches is due before too long.  photo Levis.jpg

Levi’s Type 1 jacket reproduction


This jacket was made by Levi Strauss and Co.. It is a reproduction of their Type 1 denim jacket, produced from the turn of the century until it was supplanted by the Type II in 1956. It has a pleated front, single breast pocket, and buckle back. This one has a slider buckle instead of the pronged type like the original would have had. The denim is factory distressed, as are the buttons. The styling makes me think LVC repro, but the combination of the small “E” on the red tab, non selvedge denim, and the 70535-9954 model no. on the tag make me wonder if it might just be a short-lived reissue by the main branch of the company.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 25″

Vintage in the ’80s

Vintage clothes in the early ’80s. Even the new pieces in the picture would be considered vintage now.

’30s vintage hat, ’20s vintage pince-nez, bowtie, ’70s jacket, vest, plaid shirt, jeans and hiking boots. What a look.
