DENIMBRO *TOP TOP ELITE* LEROY STRAUSS DEADSTOCK 1890 WORLD TOUR

As most of you know, Michael Harris recently found a small batch of deadstock ca. 1890 cinchback jeans from Levi Strauss competitor (and cousin), Leroy Strauss.

This model seems to be from the Leroy Strauss budget line, similar to the Levi's 201 of the time.

Most of the batch got snapped up by collectors immediately, but one pair was generously reserved for the denimbro community and is ready to go on a world tour!

This pair has been given one warm wash and air-dried and has shrunk from a 34 x 34 to roughly a 32 x 32. With some wear these should accommodate a 33 waist comfortably or possibly a 34 with a bit of sweat. After another wash I think 34s are definitely out of luck, and 33s iffy. Ultimate size will probably be roughly a 31 x 31 before stretching, I'm sure they would work perfectly for a 32.

A few people expressed great disappointment with the Leroys, so I imagine we won't see them signing up for the tour, but I imagine we can find 10 or so people who do like them and can round out a tour?

If we have an overseas leg, it would be a good idea to collect a small entry fee of $10 or so to enable payouts to those doing the overseas shipping.

What is expedited overseas shipping nowadays for a pair of jeans- $60 or so for sub-DHL?

I'd prefer a month in cooler weather so that I can actually wear them, I'm jorts 24/7 in the heat.
I make things out of leather.

Us commoners have a chance at the Leroy's? Oh goodie. If I get in early enough, I can squeeze into them. I'm in socal so hopefully I can be part of the early rounds before another wash.

How high is the rise, btw?
