I suspected as much. When I used to buy secondhand redlines in the late 80s, I think the smallest I bought were a 32 or 33W and I was probably a true 30 back then!

This is not meant with reference to your specific pair Charlie but people may complain about LVC, however the messy finishing on some of the 'vintage' Levi's - particularly the stitching is often a sight to behold.

Picked these up the other day, not sure exactly what era (late 70's?).  Levis 517's with grey bar-tacking on the pocket corners and the #2 stamped on the reverse of the waist button.  They're a boot cut jean made with sanforized denim I think.  One wash/ v.little wear.  Anyway, they dont fit me comfortably so no fit pic Thumbs Down

I got a small e deadstock jacket last April.

Not much wear on it yet, but I wear it as often as I can.

this is probably my favorite jacket I own right now. I love the way it fits, I got it for a total steal on ebay ($15) and I can wear it with my jeans without that feeling you get when everyone is looking at your denim tuxedo.

Don't get me wrong. I love the denim tuxedo as much as anyone else here, but the attention I get when wearing denimxdenim is not something I'm real into.







As far as I know its from the 70's. I'm guessing mid 70s. but I really dont have any way of dating

I've been watching this one at a local thrift store for weeks, the price went down to $2.30 so I had to pick it up....Not sure what im going to do with it.



I believe this screams 1970's?
