LVC
« on: October 04, 2011, 04:05:59 pm »
Anyone who recognises me from sufu may know I have a big downer on what this brand has become.
From making awesome reproductions using bespoke Cone denim at Valencia Street to producing crap in Turkey and charging £200 + in the space of 15 years.


I couldn't resist picking this up from Yoox the other day for under £40 . Nicely made in Italy, I haven't seen it on any site, wondering if it maybe a sample .



I'm rocking the belly flap look a lot at the moment, before some jokers like G star jump on the bandwagon.

Sample Made In Italy, it would seem a strange one to me? And no surprise that LVC are now being churned out of Turkey as it's much healthier profit's that way.

Hi just wondering what people on here thought about Levi's vintage as heard it's improved it's what made me interested again in denim 10 or so years ago after buying vintage Levi's in the 80s from American classics on the kings rd and Covent Garden

@lee  I love it, and have an extensive collection, but haven't bought any items since discovering IH and Full Count. I got out an oversized raw Type 1 jacket a couple of months ago and am wearing this over my raw Full Count Type 1 and type 2 jackets which are a smaller size than all my LVC jackets.

@lee I haven't got the 1915 vintage though I like the look of them. Peter at American Classics, Covent Garden used to give me discount in the 1999 to 2006 era when I was a regular customer there!

@lee, there's already an LVC thread (on p12!) that hasn't been active in years. If LVC is your thing, I'd suggest you head over to the Superfuture or Denimbro forums, where the brand still gets plenty of attention and up to date discussion.

Although we do prefer existing threads be used we can easily merge threads if need be... like I just did.

We encourage all members to discuss WHATEVER they wish to discuss (minus a few things)...

What we don't like is members making other feel they are unwelcome.

@lee, I apologize if you feel your contribution is not important/ welcomed, that is certainly not the case.

Happy posting!

No problem at all, lee!

It's been some time since I've worn LVC so not too sure what they are like now.

Definitely served their purpose when first getting into workwear though.

Thanks, @dylantbmayes . You wrote precisely what I was thinking. Certainly, I've got a number of LVC items which would beat many of the FoTD contenders and there are very few (if any) of the classic ingredients of a great pair of jeans which LVC items lack - you can take them for granted. For my part all of my vast LVC collection are Made in the USA, many in Valencia Street and nearly all bought new, raw between 1999 and 2006 with some items bought since being 1996. What is a pity is that LVC restricted their waist/leg length combinations so undersizing can be difficult. This may be a deliberate attempt to create a desired look, which is a pity.

This is all a bit silly. I thought I was being helpful here pointing out the general lack of interest in LVC by the fact that the existing thread was languishing on p12 and that 2 other forums have far more active discussion on the brand, which I think is useful information for someone genuinely interested in LVC. Consequently, a moderator sent me a 'friendly reminder' not to be 'rude or sarcastic' and to remain 'polite and courteous'. Was my post rude or sarcastic, making anyone feel unwelcome? Does anyone really think that? Perhaps I'll get a genuine warning now for posting this!
