yeah, they look pretty but the fit is a bit adventurous for me. I'd get a pair at €50 though!

^ what sort of fit are you looking for in the 1944 501s? 
 
and are you a true 34? what does your waist measure where a pair of high rise 501s would sit? (the 1944 501 has a pretty high rise relative to the model years following it) And do you plan to wear them raw or shrink them from the get go?

In my experience with mf jeans, most will end up right about at tagged size after shrinking, but because of the wide variety of deadstock denim used, some different lots of any respective jean will shrink more or less than even anticipated from design.  So, depending on what you have, that's not too specific of a sizing reference for me to confidently give you an accurate enough recommendation.

my waist measures at 31" where the 1944 501 sits. I have had two pairs. I had a pair of size 34 from a 2011 production run, that after aggressive shrinking, I was still swimming in,  and then I got myself a pair of size 30, from a 2012 (i think) production run that I gave an initial warm soak get some shrinkage, and they fit nicely... waist right at a perfect relaxed fit (could have been tighter) roomy up top but no so roomy that they looked bad.  They kind of have a loose sort of 'cowboy' silhouette on me comparable to mf buckaroos that are one size or more oversized and wouldn't shrink.

Having said that, I recommend sizing down a size one to two sizes depending on how you want them to fit.

everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth

Anyone have any recent sizing experiences with the 1966s?

Do these measurements for LVC 1890 seem accurate on the Unionmade site? 

I need waist 36 so was planning to buy tag size 36. However, after looking at this zi am thinking I should buy tag size 34?

I am also writing to Unionmade. Not a lot of site have measurements for 1890.

They should shrink down to 36 in the first couple of washes/soaks. However, I don't know how consistent that shrinkage is. Also the fabric has been changing in recent models and they might have different shrinking characteristics. Always a gamble with LVC shrink to fits...

I am sorry to revive this thread but I have a question.
I have a possibility of buying a 501 Levis Vintage Clothing 1915 or a 1917. Both are 34W.
I am a 33/34 guy, my 33W normal levis 501 are tight, I am possibly now a 34, but my 34 501 is a bit large (possibly do to the model or cut).
Do to the shrink to fit, I think that the W34 is right, but one post here says that the 1015 model is 4'' large then tag.

My 1915s (from 2009 I think) were 4” larger than tagged. They were a size 30 and measured 34” raw. This may be an anomaly but I’d try to get the measurements before buying. Most of my other LVC models are size 32 and measure 34” raw, ie 2” over tagged size.
