If any of you OG LVC fans had a chance to sit down with the guy who cut the original patterns for some of the iconic LVC jeans (1955, 1937, 1963, 1890, 1933, 1947...) what sort of things might you ask him?

is this the first time LVC has used Cone for preshrunk Orange Tab jeans?

on the t-shirt...I'm guessing LVC is banking on die-hard "Made in USA" advocates to shell out the extra $$$ for such items

sorry, but i'd rather spend $25 for a US-made Goodwear, or $40 for a US-made Velva-sheen, or hell, even $70 for a MF "skivvies" t-shirt...i just don't understand how they come up with the prices for some of their stuff

this one's pretty obvious, but it shouldn't be overlooked...
what was the reasoning behind "modifying" the cut of the 1947? if i'm not mistaken, this was done from the very beginning or at least very early on in LVC's history

Same here, those Todd Snyder/champion pieces are pretty incredible as well.

Does it really take almost a month to get an order placed from VentePrivee ?  I am a bit anxious because I gained 30 pounds in 2 or 3 weeks due to health reasons and need some new denim that isnt a quick fix.

^Yes, shorty, the 47 came out around 1998/99 and was pretty much the same tight-thighed cut it is currently.

cool...i'd be getting the lowdown on that then
i guess even more fundamental than that is why have a pattern-maker at all for the manufacture of historical cuts..weren't there patterns in the archives they could use to manufacture the repros?
it makes sense if you're going to modify like in the case of the '47, but what about the other models...were there slight changes to those as well, or did it have something to do with the machines or materials used for the reproductions that required new patterns?
