LVC 1967 505-0217 ‘White Nights’

01

Image

—01. 12 oz. Cone Mills denim.

Words

I don’t generally subscribe to pre-distressed denim, preferring to apply my own fingerprint to the aging process, but this version of the 505 from LVC looks like a perfectly worn pair of vintage jeans. The slim, straight cut is probably my favourite fit right now and Levi's have shown some welcome restraint in the distressing department, leaving you plenty of room to put your own stamp on them.

Levi's Vintage Clothing 1970s Orange Tab 615

—01. Medium wash.
—02. Cone Mills denim.

Words

Levi's Orange Tab products from the late '60s and early '70s, long thought by collectors to be inferior to vintage Red Tab items, have received many desirable reproductions from LVC this season, surely regaining some of the respect they deserve in the process. Produced in a medium washed original Cone Mills denim, the 1970s 615 model is an understated style with a straight leg, bar tack construction, zip fly and a leather-like patch.

Levi's Vintage Clothing 1962 551Z

—01. 14oz Preshrunk Denim.

Words

The 1962 551Z is the model that predates the would-be classic 505, and they're a great alternative to the more common 1940s and '50s 501s from LVC. This pair is pre-shrunk making size guessing a non-issue, and I also really like the wear a zip-fly leaves behind compared to a button-fly.

Levi's Vintage Clothing Western Shirt

01

Image

—01. Triple stud closed cuffs.

Words

Finding a good western shirt that doesn't look like a caricature of a western shirt is kind of a challenge. I love ones that don't wear the hallmarks of a cowboy shirt like a neon sign; ones in workwear colours with muted details that a 'real' 1960s cowboy costume would have had. This example from Levi's Vintage Clothing is just that, understated and traditional.

01. Copper rivets.
02. 100% cotton.

Words

The 5-pocket 519 from LVC features a pre-shrunk cotton with copper rivets, zipper-fly and the big E label. The colour is great for the spring, or fall, and offers a slightly tapered fit through the leg.

Levi's Vintage Clothing 60s Striped Tee

—01. 100% cotton.

Words

It's somewhat surprising to me that one of the best products in the LVC offering is consistently their t-shirts. However, it is the case and there are some nice plain and striped options this fall.

LVC 1950s Tab Twill Shirts

01. Pirate Black.
02. Castor Grey.

Words

A classic, easy to wear piece from the Fall-Winter '12 Levi's Vintage Clothing collection, these shirts have just arrived at Haven, along with a selection of other items from the brand. Simplicity is the key with these, as well as good fabric and colour choices, and the use of shell buttons to add some contrast.

Levi's Vintage Clothing 1960's Striped Tees

—01. Blue.
—02. More blue.

Words

The tees shirts in the Levi's Vintage Clothing rage continue to be their second best items after the denim. While they aren't cheap, these striped 60s tees look great, and I like the blues and soft look of the cotton, definitely ideal for the spring season ahead.
