I would have preferred 5000 pairs 100 made in usa. wouldn't need to be big e or selvedge. also 60 bux.LOL  it was like a golden ticket when I could still find older made in usa pairs at department/army navy stores.

I was able to pick up a bunch of stuff on sale last year. I see a lot of it for double the sale price on ebay now...

the hoodie is real nice but I had to repair a pocket after 1 day.

That Japanese patch tee is pretty cool.
I'm wearing a black/white stripe tee from LVC right now, picked it up dirt cheap years ago. Developed holes almost immediately...

I have a question on 1976 501's. Does anyone know how was the shrinkage in the Made in USA - Cone Denim version that came out couple of years back?

they shrink but stretch back in waist. be aware that they come short length, so a stated L32 came with a acutally 31 inseam. btw. one of the best repros by levi´s, considereing that mostly japanese repros are based on 1940-50s levi´s, these are even more intriguing. got 4 pairs of em, plus 2 prewashed ones.

LazS- that’s a good question. I always wondered how industrially “rinsed” or prewashed clothing was handled- I’ve always assumed a gentle warm wash with minimal non-fragranced soap and drying in a low heat low agitation environment?
I’d like to see how it’s done.

These are the only rinsed pair I have from Levi's but it looks like they were washed in something that tinted them brown
