The first time I came across this rinsed wash was in 2005 with a 1966 501 called "My Generation" when purchased new the jean had a strong stench, a brown tint and had scented tumble dyer pads in the pockets to hide the smell,
The wash later became rough rinse around 2010ish.

What I always wondered was: Is it the denim itself that is washed and treated or the constructed jean?

Early finished lvc jeans were always very undersized as later finished jeans more true to size.

I've seen a few samples that had brown or orange tints applied, the outside looked, em, okay but the inside was a horrible color, not suited for turn-ups.

Chemical or perfume scents on washed jean- not okay.

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.

Thanks, going to search for a Made in USA one.
