Made in Bulgaria fu*#in.
just got mine, same :(

anyway, looks like mine are going back.

The 1944 I already have are size 34 and they were falling off my waist, so I figure I will go for a size 32, but with the new pair, I can't even do up the button.......... (same for the 1947)

PS the pockets on the 1944 is different to my other pair, they had the plain white/beige fabric instead of this stripped version.

For the price I am chuffed. Pretty much what you used to pay for standard Levis at Just Jeans etc.. Mine fit great. Will see how they go after a wash or two..

Give them a soak Couchey, I heard it stop the crotch blowing, that said both mine went on the 44’s
The only LVC’d I ever had where the crotch didn’t blow were my LVC Japan ones and the 1927 blue selvedge pair they were ok. All the others of whatever year whether soaked first or worn raw all blew in exactly the same spot. Oh and on the 44’s they all developed that off pocket gig where it shows the pocket bag off. For wartime denim I’d go with Lee Japan archive ‘42’s. Beautiful

Haven’t seen anyone mention The Flat Head, but it is another Japanese denim brand with great attention to detail (just got one!). I’ve tried a number of different Japanese makes based on the feedback from this forum and looking at quality rather than price I think they’re all excellent choices. Whichever you prefer is the right one. Me? I’m having a hard time deciding. I like all of them.

I have a few hats from them...some are marked The Flat Head, some RJB which I think is their brand. One I got reduced from their shop in Harajuku last year, and being pleased with it I picked up more on Yahoo!Auctions. Don't have any of their jeans.

I like those denim A-11 caps Thomas. Not so sure about the stripey pants though..;)

Thanks for link, some highwaisted jeans are interesting. Is it you on a motorcycle on one of banners?
