Although maxit doesn't like the look, many do.
AS the look of vintage jeans has become more prized, so has the phenomenon of leg twist - a property of older twill fabrics that was originally seen as a drawback or irritation.
Leg Twist was eliminated in the 1970s by skewing (which contorts denim to its after-wash shape) - and later revived with Levi’s Red and Engineered twisted seams jeans!
So, leg twist is a product both of fabric movement, and the garment construction.
I didn't ask Ralph whether it's possible to alter jeans after they're sewn to eliminate the leg twist as, in practical terms, it's impossible. You just have to live with it, taking comfort from the fact it's a mark of cool, old jeans.
When my LVC '47, both pairs, started showing heavy leg twist after their first wash, I was pleased. But plenty of people will comment that I'm twisted already.
