Hey fellas, I got a pair of the 1878 Pantalons. I love the fit (anti-wide leg), but the buckle is total dog shit. Can anyone point me in the direction of a better one for this pair? Dead


Matt....reach out to the Levis meatpacking store. They have bowls of replacement buckles for each buckleback model.

No new wear to be seen, but here are the 1878 pantaloons (with Hollows Leather suspenders):

how bad is they fraying as it is now, unsoaked?  

I have never machine washed mine either, but after the first soak of the first pair, is when I noticed the fraying and it was bad enough to ruin my day.

I've only soaked mine, and minimal wear, and they're still fraying.
Poor quality.

I assumed those unfinished seams were supposed to be 'authentic' to the period…I've seen the same on Rising Sun jeans.

^True, but on the 1878s denim the actual selvedge is fraying and is very irregular- some sort of mechanical problem in the weaving, and for some reason this was acceptable to lvcs quality control team.
Just kidding, there is no such team.

Ah, I see. & btw, don't try to throw up a smoke screen. I'm well aware that LVC has their own highly trained security force of ruthless mercenaries.

Actually I'll have to correct myself- I always had assumed that the inseam selvedge was coming unraveled, but I turned them inside out and it seems like the back panel actually cuts away from the selvedge about halfway up, maybe because the pants have such a convex profile?
 What I had thought was an unraveling selvedge is actually just frayed, cut, unfinished cloth.
 Where is my 1878 Crow's Pie with uncrimped crust edges?

Yes.^^^That's what I experienced with the unraveling. As you say, selvedge cut away above the knee. They could/should have just left it...
