One day the tagged sizes will match the actual sizes.  Fingers crossed.

The sizing is fine, they just put the wrong patches and tags on, honest!

I would think that it might be more important to know general shrinkage rather than typical over/under sizing, as you said most sellers will measure for you.  My 201s didn't budge at all after a few washes (and even a short stint in the dryer once), but it seems other models are more like Shrinky Dinks.

setterman - Might be too little too late, but when i get back home to the U.S. around nov/dec I'd be happy to fill in the sizing info that's missing in your list.  I will measure 1890s, 1937s, and pantaloons too.  I have most year models in various years of production if you need anymore specs.

from memory, I think the 1890s measure two inches above tagged waist size, and spot on to tagged length.  a tagged 30x36 measures 32x36.  I have several pairs and I also remember one or two pair coming up short in the inseam by 1/2" to  full inch.  So somewhere between 35 and 36" inseams.

Hope that bit helps for now. I'll check in again when i'm back home.

Hi Bro's, I am looking to grab a pair of LVC only buckle backs but am interested in a pair with a slimmer knee to hem.  I was looking at the 37's on Cultizm which look to be a lil slimmer.  Also any sizing help would be great as well.  My 47's which were 18in flat are now 19in after a few weeks of wear.  I am currently carrying a bit of a gut so not sure if thats going to play a part with a higher rise jean

^ you might like 1878 pantaloons. They are tapered with slim knees tapering down to a slimmer hem.  They aren't for everyone, but they're one of my favorite jeans out there.

you might be able to get away with a size 34 in them since they fit large.  size 34 measures about 18 across the waist.

I would have mentioned the 1915s, too. They're slimmer than expected.


Though, right, the 1878s are very slim. And the waist is huge.

I got the 34s and they're too big for me. I'll sell if anyone is interested. But- I've already hot soaked them and I put some suspender buttons on.

I'm not a fan of the 1878's, they require altering of silhouettes & looks which means spending more money.   I need to stop wasting time and just buy one of the other years.

Made a very impromptu purchase of the 1878 pantaloons as Levis outlet had them in sale for 50€. Got a size W31 rigid that is a bit loose in the waist unsoaked.

Here are the pre-soak measurements for 31/36

Waist 16,5 inches (2 inches over the tagged size)
Inseam 36
Front rise 12,5
Thigh 11,5
Knee 8,7
leg 7,4

I will update the post when I have done the first soak.

One can discuss the authencity of 1878 but I got to say that they are really nice fit. The waist is so high that with a proper sizing they stay up nicely with only a cinch. Bit of a diaper look on my skinny backside though.
