The best thing about vintage Levi's is they have no elastic in the fabric, which we think make for the best feel, fit and durability. This is the "Boyfriend" style, tapered from the hips to slim fit at the ankle, with a high waist. There may be signs of resizing around the waist band. The badge on the back of the waist may have come from another pair of Levi's, or the size details may not match due to shrinkage of the denim.
The condition is very good with no flaws to mention. All jeans come freshly laundered.

The best way to measure the right fit for a pair of jeans is to grab a measuring tape. Lay out a pair of jeans that you like the fit of, and take the measurements. That way you can compare those measurements to the pair you are considering purchasing. To measure the waist, Place the tape horizontally across the waistband. Rise. This is measured from the crotch seam to the top of the waistband. Seat- Place the tape across the bottom of the fly. This will give a hip/seat measurement. Make sure not to move the tape up and down. Inside Leg- Place the tape on the inside of the leg and measure from the crotch to the ankle.

The environmental impact of manufacturing jeans is really high. Huge amounts of water and chemicals are used. More than half of global cotton production – 57 per cent – takes place in areas under high or extreme water stress, according to data compiled by the World Resources Institute. Only 30 per cent of the cotton produced comes from natural rain fed farming. The rest relies on irrigation, mainly wasteful flood irrigation. As well as being a thirsty crop, cotton cultivation currently uses lots of chemicals – 4 per cent of all world pesticides and 10 per cent of insecticides are used in cotton-growing. These poisons can pollute local eco-systems and drinking water supplies.That being said, wearing second hand cotton garments is a very good idea. Pure cotton, is much more breathable, and 100% natural and hyperallergenic so feels better on skin. Cotton is also better at wicking moisture away from the body, which means absorbing sweat. Polyesters and other man made fibers can contain toxic cancer causing fibers. Cotton is very strong. It can shrink during the first wash but if you are buying second hand cotton items, they will be preshrunk and already worn in and flexible.
