The Real McCoy'sxLVC

I usually try to make my posts longer but now I've got to make a shorter one yet again(a lengthy report on KATO is coming), otherwise I'd have to wait months for more information.

I just heard from Lewis at superdenim that The Real McCoy's has just struck a deal with Levi's; they will be making the 1947 501 for the Levi's Vintage Clothing collection. There has been complaints about the existing '47 not being an accurate reproduction because it's so slim, but this should be the last say on the issue as the owner of The Real McCoy's has thousands, not kidding, of vintage Levi's to base the jean on.

I'm not sure when the RMCxLVC '47 will be available nor where it will be available. I do hope, but not expect, that this model will be sold in every country where LVC is sold.

The Real McCoy's has already made a few models for Lee, but I'm not sure if or how they are better than the Edwin-made ones.

ringxring & Ironheart/FreeBee



The forum at ringxring has so far yielded a few new or re-issued models from Samurai Jeans and more are in the works from Samurai as well as other brands.
For one, Giles of Hidden Rivet/Ironheart UK is about to create a 14.5oz version of the popular Ironheart 634 model. He's looking for input on which denim to use, which details to incorporate and a design for the backpocket arcuates.

For me it's really exciting to see opportunities like these arise and take part in them. If you dig it too, here's the discussion and information about the project. There's even a small prize for the person who comes up with the winning design.

Let's make jeans!
