Indigo Friday. Cone before it’s gone. Three three or five five, I think...

Levis is offering 40% off the entire website including LVC through Friday evening. Use the code INDIGO. 

I just bought two pairs of 1954z's that never seem to go on sale so was happy to save $198 on the order.

I have some unwashed measurements of the 1976 jeans in size 32/34.

Waist: 42.5 cm
Front rise: 30.25 cm
Back rise: 39.5 cm
Thigh: 31.5 cm
Knee: 24.25 cm
Hem: 21.25 cm
Inseam: 85 cm

I would say they are fairly TTS.

It's great that Aero have hosted that document for years now, but if you buy LVC jeans from Aero, beware of the sizing on their product pages.


They stick religiously to the old adage "buy the size up and they'll shrink".


That may well have been true back whenever, but is often NOT the case nowadays.


Example: 1933 (recovery act) 501s run true to ticket size - Aero says buy bigger.


I learnt the lesson, to my cost, so finished up buying 2 pairs to get one that fits.

Anybody want a pair of 36s, going cheap?

Do the LVC 1936 Type 1 Jackets have cinch backs with pins?  Are they Silver?  Bronze?  A combo of Silver and Bronze?
