The LVC Thread

I can tell you how much I paid for them at the Levi's Store in Causeway Bay (Hong Kong).. but if others want to help verify; I believe they are 1944 s501xx (obviously a distressed and washed version).

You don't wanna size down on them... You wanna size up. Unlike most japanese denim makers which shrink to tagged size, LVC shrink FROM tagged size.

If you are a natural 30 waist you'd want to get at least a 31-32 tagged size. Since it'll shrink 2 inches or so depending and then stretch a little with wear.

If you sized down 2, 28, they would shrink to a 26 which is probably unwearable.

in my experience with LVC this is only true if you're referring to the 1947's. besides those I'd go so far as to say that ALL LVC models are a bit oversized (at the waist) so therefore you dont really need to size up, even though they're stf...

Yea I should have been more specific, but I believe Lew was asking about 1947 cut

and its a straight leg.

Do Levi's stores still sell LVC's?

I think it'd be smart to call before, I seem to recall some do and some don't.

Looking for a pair of LVC '47s in size 32 or 33 / tag size 34 is good, too.

Will buy or trade.
I do have a pair of Rag & Bone RB-15's for trade + SUPREME gear as well.

Please PM me or email:

LVC rules.
July 21, 2010 @ 14:38:04
LVC can be found in some stores like Barneys or even Levis retail stores, but its a slim chance and its probably old overstock.

I was talking to a couple Levis stores in my area and they mentioned that LVC line is done, but its supposedly being brought back this year under a different name. Pretty plausible since Levis has been selling alot of different clothing under sub liines like the "1853" and "El Real" for men.

naw its still made, sold at barneys like you said. look at their print catalogs. there is another line that looks like lvs but is cheaper forgot the name, probably what you are talking about.

old news...lvc been in europe hiding

around a year ago, heard thru the levis grapevine that it would be making a comeback this year, but under what circumstances was not made clear
July 24, 2010 @ 20:30:16
I wear a size 30 in APC new Cure.

How to size on LVC 1947?

July 24, 2010 @ 21:27:04
i'd say size up 1 from true waist then hot soak them for a skinny fit.

btw some washed lvc's in my listings, check it out. 30x32
July 24, 2010 @ 23:02:43
^ that's wrong, 1947 501 is a straight cut, sizing up & hot soaking would def not make them fit skinny.

@ boy.2.clutch, no LVC's are comparable to how your New Cure's fit, but if you still are interested in LVC's, you should cop 67 505's or even 66 501's, they are slim and also have a slight taper down the leg.
July 25, 2010 @ 11:24:36
I know they aren't the same cut, I was just using that as an example of what kind of size 30 I am. I'll most likely just go TTS.

I cold soaked my pair as soon as I got 'em. I went true-to-size as well and couldn't button beyond the first two buttons for three months. They fit fantastic now, but yeah, took a while for them to stretch.

Yo just gave me a shitload of hope. When you cold soaked for how long,in them, how did you dry etc? thanks alot
