Denimbro 2012/2013 World Tour.

The jeans:




Still crispy as fuck though worn once or twice Valencia street 555 LVC 551zxxs! Also to be modified.

Measurements (soaked, and these are sanforized):
   Waist: 33" (82.5cm)
   Inseam: 34" (85cm)
   Front rise: 11" (27.5cm)
   Rear rise: 16" (40cm)
   Thigh: 12" (30cm)
   Knee: 9.25" (23cm)
   Cuff: 8" (20cm)

The fit of the 551zxx is similar to that of the LVC '66, lower waisted and with tapered legs, but with a fuller cut thigh. And of course a zipper. Not made since 1999 or 2000, so they're surpassingly rare. Seem to have been worn a few times, but little visible wear to speak of, and still very stiff.
 These will stretch out a little at the waist, not sure how much, probably less than an inch? 

The customization:


On May 23rd the jeans will go to Jack/Knife, who will customize them using some vintage 1870/80s denim or duck found by Sansome & Nonriveted.

The shirt:

 LVC Early 1900s Sunset shirt, rigid, Made in the USA (in San Francisco, in fact).
 Thanks to Alex Patterson (denimbro Patt11) & the XX team for making this happen. Alex is having this modified in some way at the Levi's tailor shop at Union Square as we speak. Size L, but rigid, so it will shrink down, hopefully to a roomy M.

The bag:


 Roy Slaper will contribute a hand-made duck shoulder bag to hold the jeans and shirt and also for use as a carry-all. Tour members are encouraged, as per robbie's suggestion, to hand-sew on an embroidered or printed patch that represents their state/provence/country or some other emblem with personal meaning.

The road:

Sign up, receive the jeans when it's your month, wear them for a month, post as many pix as possible along the way, pay to send them onto the next guy.  
I got a rocket in my pocket and roll in my jeans
