Thanks Dr Heech.
I'll revisit the other thread and read up. 

Interesting you mention 'river fluff' as a quality detractor, assuming that is the tuft, funny as it's one of the things that in some cases is almost overly stylised by the Japanese brands. 
 
Haha yes, it is one of those fence sitting subjects for me.  Regardless of originals and other repro companies, with Lvc I just remember that the rivets on the pre-2002 stuff were clean, i.e. no fluff protruding and belt loops cut close to the fold where the tacking stitch is applied. 
These things plus a few more even geekier ones were omitted after that, never to return :(

The 'Fibershed' movement -- this floors me, it's amazing.  A very responsible, anti - fashion, appropriate take on clothing. 

I hope Daniel knows that we DO find all of this quite fascinating.

I'd love to hear more about this fibershed movement if you are able to interview his friend.

So cool that he designed the 527, 514 and 511's -- all three of these, and in this order actually were my 'gateway' to caring about the jeans I wore, how they looked, how they fit, et cetera.  The first pair of new jeans I bought with my own money were 527's.

Ain't that the truth.....  I don't know how tough it is for smaller guys to buy clothing, but when I look for a shirt big enough (usually XL) to fit my chest and shoulders, it winds up being so short in the sleeves I have to roll them up, and half the time they're too short in the body to comfortably tuck in.  And of course, it will fit like a tent through the mid section.  If you have a 46" or 48" chest, you must have a 44" waist.....

Excellent interview Mark!
