Kann es sein, dass die Levi's Sta-Prest über die Jahre sehr weit geworden sind, also obenrum am Bund? Ich hatte mir vor längerer Zeit mal eine der neuen Repros gekauft in 32/34. Die sitzt obenrum schon recht locker, also ohne Gürtel geht da nix (hab sonst auch 31). Dann ist mir bei eBay ein Original aus den 60s über den Weg gelaufen. Ebenfalls 32/34, aber bei der habe ich absolut keine Chance auch nur den Knopf zu schließen?! Ist jetzt nicht weiter schlimm, die hat mich nur 1,50 gekostet (das nennt man dann wohl Bargain), aber ärgerlich ist es trotzdem.

ich hatte ein ähnliches problem. musste für unsere hochzeit mehrfach neu und in anderen größen bestellen und keine passte. eine nummer größer war ihm zu groß, eine nummer kleiner ging überhaup nicht zu und war extrem viel kürzer. glaube mit deren größen stimmt so allgemein was mal überhaupt nicht. und als anmerkung, andere hosen passen meinem mann und ne normale figur hat der auch, also an ihm lags wohl nicht

Ein Kumpel meinte auch mal so etwas...

Aber 32" ist immer 32"... Die Größen haben sich nicht verändert...

Der Unterschied ist wohl eher folgender:

Jeans (genauso wie Hüfthosen aller Art) sitzen tiefer auf der Hüfte. Sta-Prest und andere Hosen waren in den 60ern auf Taille geschnitten. Also auch wenn dir etwa eine Levi's 501-Jeans in 32 passt, kann es sehr gut sein, dass du bei einer Levi's Sta-Prest eine 34-Zoll-Taille brauchst...

unter die Nippel ist vielleicht etwas hoch, aber bis zum Bauchnabel ist genau richtig...

Ein Vorläufer der Levi's Whites/ Slim Fits:

Lynn Downey, brand historian of Levi's travels the world with old jeans
The Economic Times – April 3, 2013

"There's a fortune to be made in an old pair of jeans. The only caveat (and it's a big one) is that the pair has to be really old; over a century is a good starting point. If you do have access to great-great-grandad's wardrobe (and assuming he wore jeans), the old pair could sell for close to $150,000. Lynn Downey, brand historian of Levi's travels the world with just such a pair; quite literally one of the first branded blue jeans ever made.

She ensures the jeans are always part of hand luggage; this is one item of clothing that cannot be trusted with airlines. The other pair she's exhibiting is a 501 from the 1980s. What it lacks in vintage pedigree, this pair from Japan makes up for by sporting the signatures of all the members of The Rolling Stones.

It's just a part of Downey's job as brand historian at Levi's. Going from country to country showcasing old jeans or fielding questions from people on the vintage of their denim apparel may seem like a dream job. But Downey's role also serves a valid business purpose. It involves helping the current team at Levi's dip into the brand's heritage for design and innovation cues: "When its design season we have two or three people spending weeks on end with us. Some look at our old finishes and some at our buttons which were beautifully designed," she says.

Downey acts as consultant when a new brand is being launched or a fresh territory ventured into; she has all the information on how Levi's negotiated these challenges in the past.

Brand historians or archivists are quite popular among American brands with a long pedigree. They are (or have been) present at Coca-Cola, Disney, Ford, Hallmark and Wells Fargo. And yet, according to Downey, having a brand historian shouldn't just be the preserve of older brands: "The day you start your business is the day you start your archive. I hope Google have an archivist because they are making history."

While Downey believes she was chosen by Levi's because she "got really lucky", she adds more seriously, "Companies are starting to realise how important heritage can be for design, innovation, marketing communication and brand protection."

Downey's knowledge of brand Levi's is, as expected, encyclopaedic. She eagerly rattles off all the changes that were made to the flagship 501 range which is currently celebrating its 140th anniversary.

501s stayed relevant introducing belt loops in the jazz age of the 1920s, and in the 1930s, as the brand became a decidedly more urban phenomenon, the rivets on the back pockets which used to be exposed and began scratching furniture were sewed in differently. The jeans became skinnier in the 1960s and started to be stonewashed in the 80s and more recently pre-faded.

Of course, this makes Downey the go-to source for some of the serious missteps taken by the brand. Her favourite is from the 1958 when Levi's decided to introduce Spikes, polished cotton pants for men and children with a look inspired by a railway spike and a colour scheme taken from jello: orange, lime and lemon.

These neon coloured pants were advertised to retailers with actual boxes of jello to show them the shades. It was a colossal failure though on reflection, Downey believes Levi's hit the market two decades too early. Spikes have now become a highly sought after collectible and even Downey has only managed to land an orange and a lemon pair. She says a tad philosophically, "When you are this big and excited about experimenting you are going to have missteps."

All through its history the brand has been a huge believer in advertising. This dates back to Levi Strauss himself. Downey says, "I have pieces of advertising that date back to the 19th century. Levi knew this was really important since we got a patent to make the first blue jeans in 1873 and were given exclusive rights for 17 years. He knew he had to milk that: he understood marketing even in the late 1800s. Inventing the category is a big edge."

This attitude to advertising was endorsed even by managers who took charge decades later. As America lapsed into The Great Depression in the 1920s, the president of Levi's continued to spend the then massive amount of $25,000 on outdoor advertising. Downey counts many of these large format paintings along buildings or barns (some of which exist to date) among her favourite work on the brand: an early example of taking the message to where people actually live and work.

When asked to pick a favourite from Levi's TV commercials, she avoids the more esoteric self consciously arty commercials from the 1990s and early 2000s and goes back to the 1970s. She says, "There was this new way of doing TV commercials called rotoscope; where live action footage was hand painted and so it looked a lot like animation. Levi's was one of the first to use that in advertising." Her absolute favourite is from even further back — a film in which a grizzled old cowboy gives a formal burial to an old pair of Levi's.

She attributes Levi's longevity and massive global popularity amid a market full of old and new denim brands first to its quality: "I can still wear an over 100 year old pair of the jeans and walk around in Bangalore." But beyond that, it has to do with the values of the company. She says, "We give back to communities and so are perceived as more than just people who make a good product. Levi's was one of the first to talk about AIDS and HIV in the workplace 30 years ago. That means a lot to a lot of people.""

Ich kauf mir die ganzen Hosen eigentlich nur über eBay, Foren oder Amazon.
