I mean we're not talking about a brand like flathead or sugar cane. We're talking about levis. and while levis are the og brand, around the denim community it doesn't carry as much weight as some of the higher end brands.

I personally think they fit a tad bit looser than a 511

ah i hear you. yea they're not necessarily flatheads or anything but i'd say they're an alternative to apcs lol and i cosign on them probably fitting looser than 511s

they definitely fit a bit looser than 511's. i just got mine yesterday and i really like them. the button fly does suck, but thats really the only 'con' i have per say.

when you guys ordered this (with the 40% coupon) did the free shipping for signing up to their emailing list apply as well? i'm going through most of the checkout process and have yet to see the free shipping thing. just wondering if/when it's supposed to show up or if the active coupon voids it

i believe you get free shipping with a purchase of over $100. Since your getting 40% off I don't think the total is over $100

i know, you're right about that offer but on the site it shows on the top and bottom that if you sign up to their emailing list then you get free shipping on your first order. it says no restrictions or anything but i'm also thinking that's just some marketing talk lol

edit - i'm pretty sure the email promo thing doesn't apply with this coupon, it's all good tho

Whoa! you can take it to the Levi's store to return it?? That'd be perfect, I have one right down the street i just ordered online to get the discount. Could i exchange it for a larger size for the same discounted price?

so since the arcs are painted on (which i think is stupid) that means that the arcs will fade then right? I mean you could eventually end up with a pair of levis with no arcs?

the reason the arc's are painted on was to go for the 'vintage' look. during world war 2, there was obviously a supply shortage, and that was the reason the arcs were being painted on jeans. when i heard this, i wasn't as against the painted on arcs. although i would still like to remove them.

painted arcs ftw..the 1940's 501 is one of my favorite lvc items.

on another note picked up a pair stfs for the hell of it and they turned out great fit wise, 100% suprised.that is all.

Found some lvc 1947 501s (STF) on sale for $155. I tried a 34/34 on in the store (im usually a 33/32) and they fit surprisingly well preshrinkage. Length was obviously too long, but there was only a little room in the waist/seat/thighs. Is it a bad move to buy these? I'm afraid theyll shrink to be too small and I'm looking for a classic/fit (ie not too tight)


Considering LVC 47 used to retail in Levi's store for 175, you didn't really find a good deal. Now if these are the NEW NEW LVC 47s from this season which are typically closer 200-250 range, it might be a good deal. Could probably find it cheaper on ebay. Also, if you look at my fit pic, that is after one hot soak. Pre-soak, the fit was nearly got dam perfect. In hindsight I shouldve gotten one size up but Im happy with the fit as is now.
