    There are several threads for different cuts in this collection but no thread for LVC in general.
    So let's talk about denim, shirts, tees and so on

    So here it is.

    Shops to buy LVC:

    www.cultizm.com
    www.aeroleatherclothing.com
    www.volls.de
    www.frontlineshop.com
    www.manufactum.de
    www.original-fliegerjacken.de
    www.oki-ni.com

    I will update the first page with sizing information and so on if we have enough

    Like you 2 already said i think i will let them dry completly and see how they'll look. Already was hard to put them on the hanger :) so i think they've shrinked some inches...

    Well i guess it look like they have... :-|
    But as said in the Levi's booklet that came with the jean it's normal that not every LVC 1944 has the same pocket bags as the other...Unfortunately!

    Waiting time is over :-D !

    postsoak measurements + fitpic:
    (sorry for last pic!)
    Waist: 35"

    Front rise: 12.75"

    Back rise: 16.25"

    Thigh: 12.5"

    Knee: 9"

    Leg opening: 8.75"

    Inseam: 31.5"

    [​IMG]

    What do you guys think?
    I think i will go for another soak in some hot water but without soaking the waist...But the feeling is complet different to nudie jeans...CAN'T compare these 2...

    Thx alot Stefan!...

    I dunno why you wanna soak them again. They don't need to be slimmer from what I see

    Wearing TF's true the day makes me think slower if it comes to "regular" sized/fitted jeans :-D

    @ Stefan:

    Well i guess there's gonna be no more nudies for me for a while now ;-)...
    And nooooooooooo more prewashed jeans for ever... :p

    Thx for healing me doctor ... :-o

    Anyone knows if the '44 model comes in 35/38 (need to have a 36 length, a little shorter will do too). True waist is more like a 33 or 34 so to be safe I guess 35 is good.

    So where to cop these?

    My experiences are that the 44's are 1-2sizes bigger in the waist then tagged.
    So if you're a regular 34 then a 34 in 44's should suit you well. Same with mine.
    I'm a 34 in every other jeans and the 34 on my lvc (actually 35-36) shrunk to a "normal" 34...

    Edit:
    volls.de sales a 34x36 which should turn out (after soaking) as a 34x34-35...

    @SunBoom: Go for your true waist like TF said, they're pretty oversized, but I wouldn't downsize due to further shrinkings (they'll shrink 2 inches in the waist AND the inseam after the 1st soak).

    Ok. Will go for a 33 or 34 waistlike then.

    But what about the 38 inseam? Can't seem to find it anywhere.
