    Do you have any idea how the '33 compares to the '20 201? I was just at the flagship store in San Francisco and liked the 33 best of all the cuts there, but didn't like the material as much. However they didn't have the 201 there to try.

    I don't own the 33, but according to Paul T's guide they are quite similar in shape and both offer the widest leg openeings, the 201 being a tad bigger and looser than the 33. However, the 201 does shrink not that much than other LVCs, I bought mine unworn, but washed in 90°C and dried in the machine and it did shrink barely at all.
    The fabric is nothing spectacular, 11-12 oz Cone Denim, but I like the detailing better than on my Made in USA 44501.

    So, I can't help much, but I'd suggest not to size up too much on the 201 due to their lesser shrinking potential.

    Cool, thanks for the info. The fabric on the 33 is lighterin shade than the others, and gives the impression that it'll end up looking like any of their regular STF jeans. However, I did really like the lighter weights of the older models. I'm thinking that whenever I decide that I want to venture into LVC, I'll have to go for the 201. While it was disappointing to not get anything on my trip, it has been very helpful in narrowing down my denim wishlist.

    In fact, the denim of the 201 does not feel that much lighter than the 14 oz of the 44501. And you're right, it feels and looks somewhat different than the other fabrics, a bit slubby on the inside, but not as hairy as the 501 denim. In any case, it's a beautiful pair. Keep us updated.

    Denim lust has hit a low these couple of months...spending so much time on a single pair of contest jeans has reminded me of all the others hanging on the denim rack.
    No new jeans for the forseeable future ;-)

    I really think that I am going to end up getting another pair of LVC's sometime early next year, or when another pair of jeans decides to break down. Either way.

    Evisus are still on sale IIRC, so the perfect time to get one.
    S510XX24oz in LHT or RHT? The latter would be harder to get

    During my trip to San Francisco and LA I stopped in at Self Edge, The Levi's Store, and The Stronghold. Based on handling what was available, my list has shortened quite a bit...

    Oni Blue
    Samurai 4000
    Samurai 634GX
    PBJ 009
    PBJ 004

    I found that the LVC fits weren't what I was looking for with the possible exception of the 201, which wasn't available to try. Everything at Self Edge is nice, but nothing really jumped out at me. And the Stronghold only has two fits, both of which I find to be too slim in the leg opening, otherwise their materials are really nice, including some natural indigo, hand-dyed jeans that are slubby and irregular looking. It's a shame that their stuff can hardly even been seen anywhere online.

    Too many on my mind...

    Oni in AI if I get to try them on
    TFH - the new indigo mix model in 2011 if the cut works for me
    Maybe another Samurai if I could make up my mind
    Another RMcC - like the denim - 901 I already got - 906 does not work for me
    Maybe a second IH in another denim and/or cut
    PBJ XX-007
    SDA SD-D1513 if the cut works
    A SC model....

    I think right now the only jeans on my wishlist would be: APC Petit - or perhaps New - Standard.

    I'm just desperate for a simple pair of jeans that actually fits properly (not really that happy with my Finns right now).

    I have enough jeans in my rotation ATM. However, I can do with a pair of The Strike Gold SG2109.

    I was thinking about purchasing Ande Whall before the current PBJ but because the store itself is down, no online store or stock whatsoever everywhere :( *sad

    I think I have pretty much all the jeans I want :)

    Otherwise to be even more spoiled here are 2 I want:

    PBJ xx-007 Deep Indigo
    Samurai S0500XX, but I will be getting those, just gotta wait a little!

    Edit: Might as well say that I will be getting these, just waiting for the guy to ship!

    I suppose I should adjust my wishlist to accommodate the contest...
    Samurai: 0500XX, 4000VX
    PBJ: 009, 7, or 4
    Oni: Blue 14 or 18oz
    Also, one of the AI models from any of these brands...
