Even though it's a size 46, the body width is large but the length and the sleeve length are short. Even I (height 170cm, weight 55kg) can wear it without much discomfort. There are 4 buttons on the front because of the specifications for the war.
The back is a "sprit back" made up of two pieces of fabric connected together, as mentioned above. A cinchback is also attached to the waist.
Enlargement of the back. Side pleats are a little deeper.
LOT NO. printed on "S506XX" plus an "E" to indicate big size. Material: cowhide
LVCs often have only a simple tag with the original manufacturing date and other information.
LVC's rigid denim was moving away from American-made denim to Bulgarian-made denim, but it appears that more and more of the denim has since been made in Turkey, which is also made in Turkey. The production date appears to be around January 2020. There is a tag with the limited edition on the right side of the tag.
The top edge of the pockets are riveted to the top of the flapless World War II specs.
The pockets will have so-called single-sided tabs.
Iron laurel buttons. There are four buttons, as mentioned above.
The front has two pleats on each side and box stitching to hold them in place, but the box stitching is not aligned on each side.
Red lines are visible on the underside of the front.
Both ends are riveted.
The buckle is of the needle-piercing type, but it is designed so that if you don't cut the middle part of the buckle, it won't become a needle.
Unmarked rivets. Unlike the original, they are not made of steel.
The rivet backs with the same engraving as the original, but still not made of steel.
The cuffs are also made of laurel buttons and are riveted. Some of the first models have the sleeves made of one fabric, while others are made of two fabrics, but this one has two fabrics.
As mentioned above, the fabric used was made by Corn Denim's White Oak Mill. I've compared it to the LVC product that used the author's White Oak Mill article, and I think it's safe to assume that the fabric used is from the 1944 model year. It's a slightly darker shade and has a moderate slubby feel to it, although not very strong. There is not much neping, but there are a few small weave scratches in places.
