I'm working on compiling items from the first few bigger seasons of LVC (1999-2001) that didn't have released catalogs.
 Here is what I have for 2000. I tried to include items in the year they were mostly released, not necessarily the year they were manufactured. The duck items, for example, were made in 2000 but I think the jackets were manufactured late in the previous year.
 Anyone with corrections or additional items please speak up or pm me.

Updated the 1999 catalog as I finally found an image of the striped blazer from that collection.

(This is page 2 OF 2, the complete catalog is on page 1 of this thread)

FFF, I had forgotten about that piece.  That's a great jacket despite being a fabrication, historically.  It's pretty funny that the catalogs refer to the raw version as the "1879" blouse and the distressed version as the "1897" blouse.

Can't tell if they're trying to be cheeky, or just couldn't keep track of the made up date they assigned to it.



I'm curious about what the first blanket-lined jackets actually looked like though.  Do any of the resident historians know when those would have first appeared?  Troy Mills was founded in the 1850s if I recall correctly.

I make things out of leather.

Sansome would probably be the best person to ask, although a couple of years ago I was searching for the same answers on sufu and as far I remember I found some info on it and it said that Troy Mills supplied blanket-linings to Levis from the 1920's and Lee from 1933 onward.  I don't think I've seen anything earlier than a 1920's Bluebell chore coat with the Troy Mills label.  AFAIK Troy Mills closed down around 2001, but my memory is not what it was ...

Hi my reply is a little late but only discovered DenimBro a few months back. 
The pants sound like they may have been part of the LVC Old Souls range.

Ive attached the back page of a six page booklet from early 2000s the description is in para 6, don't recall having seen any of the range here in England.

Great thread. I remember seeing the special 150 jacket in Manchester when it came out. It had lambretta SX150 publicity printed on the back. I also wore the Santa Cruz sweatshirt until it fell apart. It was a slightly distressed very heavy sweatshirt. Amazing quality in comparison to today's offerings from LVC.

I do believe the Mark Gonzales referred to here is the same skater from the 80s. One of my childhood heroes. Went on to become an artist.
