LVC 1915, the best button stud jeans
Hello all readers. For this time I got the jeans LVC 1915, is the "Levi's Vintage Clothing 1915" and that means Is a premium production line jeans of Levi's company. We come to see the premium details of LVC 1915.
There are still many readers who do not understand about Levi's "LVC" jeans. What is it? And what is more special than typical Levi's jeans? I will explain briefly. Knowing that "Levi's Vintage Clothing" LVC jeans are jeans that Levi's has produced in the current retro fashion. By using the manufacturing process as close to the old jeans as possible, from weaving to sewing Other raw materials such as rivets and buttons, which will be used as a prototype of Levi's jeans in production. Mainly focused on the Levi's 501, emphasizing the important era That has changed the details (Minor Chang) of each era to come as a model for new production. That produces retro like Levi's 501 jeans 1915.
There are still many people who do not understand and think that LVC jeans are fake Levi's jeans, which is a misunderstanding. Because all Levi's LVC jeans are manufactured by Levi's America and there are many other countries that are licensed to produce.
If the readers understand LVC well, let's see the beauty of the LVC 1915 jeans. What are some interesting details? Which many people may never know before that Levi's 501 jeans produced in 1915 are different from the current Levi's 501 jeans.
If the reader has the opportunity to buy a new Levi 501 jeans, you will see a clear paper label "LEVI'S VINTAGE CLOTHING" followed by a bar code and the selling price of the jeans.
If you flip the paper label to the other side Will see important details, namely 501, 1915. "Shrink-to-Fit" means that jeans will shrink after washing. Will shrink a lot depending on the temperature of the water too If the water is very hot, it will shrink a lot. For this sign, the end is still clearly stated that "Made in the USA" is produced in America.
The key point of this LVC-1915 jeans. If everyone considers from above, it can be seen that this jeans "No belts loop." It's not that the factory forgot to sew the belts loop. But the belt loop has not been used since the early days. Therefore, this jeans has no belt loop. See, it's really special. Because this jeans has clearly conveyed the vintage in the 1915 era.
And if there is no men's belt in the 1915 era, how would he wear jeans? Try to notice that the area of jeans. There are 2 buttons on the left and 2 on each side on the back, in the middle of the other two buttons. These 6 buttons are important to use for "Suspender" . I considered the jeans that have buttons and the most rivets as well. I counted as many as 11 buttons and 13 rivet rivets.
The Levi's 501XX trademark label is a leather label for vintage mood. For details on the sign Will be quite different from the paper label.
The back waist will have a fine line back strap jeans behind. Who like jeans. When you see this part, you will call "Belle". This section will be popular before the birth of the belt, and of course it indicates the fullness of vintage. 2 buttons on the back, placed in the suspender, used for workers in the 1915 era.
Back straps In the 1915 era, there was a needle when we fastened the strap in the desired position. Will use the tip of the steel needle Stabbed into the fabric of the strap In order to lock the position so that it does not slide off But for jeans, LVC-1915, the needle will have a bridge connected to both ends of the needle if anyone wants to use it. Using a wire cutting pliers Or anything that you think can be cut Cut out the bridge at the end of the needle, then it will be the end of the two needle and can be used like the past. But if you don't want to use it, don't cut it out because it's sharp. When using or washing, cleaning can be dangerous as well. Let me remind you first.
The back pocket we noticed Copper rivet is located at the corner of the mouth of the back of the two bags, which Levi's 501 jeans will not be used to emphasize the back pocket like this. Use pocket corner yarn instead of rivets. These rivets are Levi's patents, which are registered and used in Levi's jeans since 1873 for copper rivets at this corner of the back pocket. Was canceled in 1937 because the rivet in the corner of the bag after the time of sitting would scratch the furniture Therefore using bar tag instead, but still keeping the rivets hidden inside the pants called "Hidden Rivet"
The Arcuate on the back pocket will not be as beautiful as today Because modern uses double needle sewing machines Makes the spacing equal even in the past 1915 as an ancient sewing machine Must use a person's skill in walking along the line to form a pinion or curve, so it looks distorted Not beautiful But vintage jeans lovers Said that it is very classic. Levi's therefore arranged as much as 1915 the most.
In the back pocket on the left There will be a white paper envelope. Actually, the white envelope attached to this Is a envelope from Levi's to every customer Who bought the LVC 1915 jeans in the letter, I can't sheep out to watch Because this one I will sell to customers For the inner content Will explain the origin of the LEVI'S 501XX jeans in 1915, but if there is an opportunity to open the envelope Will be brought to readers again later.
For the back pocket on the right side, usually at the corner of the bag, we will notice a small red symbol with beautiful white LEVI'S characters. Many people call it "red tab" but this one doesn't exist. Where did the red mark disappear? Did he forget? Or Levi's jeans are fake? Many people choose jeans like this. And may say "Fake or not, don't pretend to sell me." That means you still don't fully understand Levi's 501 jeans. Not because the Red Tab label is stuck at the corner of the pocket in 1953. So, this jeans LVC 501 is the 1915 model year. Red doesn't happen. "If the reader knows this, don't panic. And thought it was a fake.
The right rear pocket has a paper plan. Levi's guarantee tickets, if located in the United States, will be rough paper is not as smooth as general paper. You can notice it like a vinyl.
Let's look at the rivets. The image above is the rivet on the outside of the jeans. There is the letter "LS. & CO-S.F." Is the abbreviation of Levi's.
For the copper rivet "Rivet" on the back Or inside the jeans There is a character of Levi's company, but it's flat than the front. I counted in this model, there will be 13 rivets together, considered a model with rivets, a lot of Rivet ever.
Important rivet And special for this model Is straight jeans target Will also rivet. Which later had to remove this rivet. Because of the cowboys working when wearing jeans Some people do not wear panties.On a cold night, they will camp fire in the pasture. When sitting near the fire The heat will gradually Accumulate on the copper pins at the crotch. The hot rivet touch the internal organs of the cowboy. This problem, Levi's was resolved by removing the rivet at the target in 1944. During World War 2, the metal was not needed in jeans. In order to use the metal in war missions.
Later details Is the top button grain or around the button Suspender strap waist will have the letter "LEVI STRAUSS & CO S.F.CAL" as a donut shape and have some coating on the surface, like a lacquer like preventing something from rusting.
The buttons attached to the crotch Will be smaller than the top button And the details are not the same.
The Small button will not have letters But it is a Donut shape and has a pattern in the image above.
In the bag area of the inner bag. There is a paint "LEVI'S VINTAGE CLOTHING" in black too.
The selvage on the pants Not a red lines expected Like the typical red line jeans In the past, there was no red line in the picture. In 1915, the denim would be a selvage border like this.
Another part that uses a selvage is a small bag at the edge of the waist or a pocket. Will see the white edge of the pocket mouth Look inside the bag.
Levi's Vintage Clothing LVC 1915 jeans. We notice that the details will try to produce like pants in that era. Everything, but the only thing that doesn't imitate like that, is the care label that is in Levi's jeans. If it is a LVC jeans, the label will be new like the jeans that are currently sold. But will have the letter "LEVI'S VINTAGE CLOTHING" and the next line produced in the United States imported America, it's an important point to look at this care label. Because if produced in another country, will print the name of that country.
Another important label is the last small piece inside the top line. PC9-15501-008 means jeans 501, using the fabric code 0008, retracted after washing, clean as well. And if the reader observes another group of letters and numbers on the white side, the CW-5115 refers to the production in the 51st week of 2015. The number 4420 will be the location code produced in America. Which must match the top button Let's look at the back of the studs. Look better.
This picture will clearly see that The buttons have clearly marked the number of production locations in the United States. 4420 matches the care label.
Vintage Levi's Clothing LVC 1915 jeans use Kurabo's fabric, weighing 9 ounces before washing and the weight will increase to 12 ounces after washing. Considered a fabric that is not very thick and comfortable to wear.
For those who think to buy to wear Can see the above illustration that is already worn What kind of person will he be? Of course, it is suitable for people who prefer vintage clothing. Because the pants are cylindrical, straight legs, high waist and no belt loop. Compacting requires the use of the back belt. Your vintage style should be bought with a suspender to wear as well.
