Levi Strauss & Co first began trading back in 1853. Inventing blue jeans was just the start of how Levi Strauss pioneered a brand for true originals and some cracking denim. Levi's Vintage Clothing is their collection of historically accurate recreations from their iconic vintage men's clothing and styles.
This is a pair of LVC 1878 Shrink-to-fit jeans with a high waisted, straight leg fit. Made in the USA from Cone Denim, they will shrink roughly two inches in waist and two inches in length if washed. Because the design is from 1878, they have a rear cinch belt but no belt loops or brace buttons. This style also comes with a reinforced seat and knees in line with the original design.
These look to have been worn but the wear is minimal and they still have the original tags.
COLOUR: Dark Blue Raw Denim
SIZE: The label states 36 W 36 L, and the waist measures exactly 38in, so taking into account the shrinkage after washing these should suit a 36in jean waist size, please note the actual inside leg is 35in (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
