To breathe new life into this thread.
Found a pair of Straight fit at my local UO for $40. Tried them on, but too loose for my liking.
Decided to take a comparison picture with my Skinnies at 19 months, 2 soaks/1 machine.




what size are the straight fits?

At the Westwood UO. Very limited amount on the clearance rack.
I assume they are returns by the looks of the half set in combs.
Size 33 Skinnies, size 32 straight fit perfectly.

Those were size 32, if I remember there were 28, 32, and 36. Don't quote me though.
I recommend calling in though.

I copped a pair of skinnys awhile back.
The stacks are fat as fuck, pics later, but should I get them tapered?
Oh and how do I get these more comfy, they're stiff as hell. Hot soak with them on?

Just fix them occasionally to how you prefer before the stacks settle completely. Tapering would help, but it's definitely not necessary. People with baggy Levi 501 can have really dope stacks.
Maybe try a different pair of shoe just to set in the stacks.

Nothing is ever necessary
If I understand directly, you want to soften the denim. Yes, soaking can remove some of the starch, and soften the denim. Hot water would shrink the denim slightly and shed some of the indigo dye. So hot/cold, up to you.
I would personally just wear the jeans until they soften up.

Hate me for it.....this is my first pair of raw selvedge denim. I got a pair of tapered fit....size 30, which is what I wear in Levi 511s. So why is it I can't even get these to button all the way? I can get one button. Do I really have to just wear them until I can button them?

Never owned raw denim before and im about to buy some of the Unbranded Indigo Tapered Selvedge Denim Jean from UO and just wondering if someone could answer a few questions for me

I own no denim at all and i was wondering is the length and width the same?

What do you do if they start to smell? Do you have to wash them then or is there another way to get rid of the smell?

How bad do they bleed onto shoes?

where the azn girls at

fabreeze is a temporay solution, some people freeze their jeans to take away the smell. or if they just get too bad soaking will take away the smell..

I just hang mine in a room with the fan and a/c on. after about 12 hours the smell is gone (usually smoke from going to bars/shows), and i leave them there for another day or so since it's usually too hot in the summer to wear them all of the time.

Take your size 30 Levis, and measure the actual waist on them. I bet they measure ~16 inch across.
Levi jeans are light weight, and stretch considerably.

No. Inseam:
Skinnys 35.5in
Tapered 34.5in
Slim 34.5in

They bleed on shoes, but cuffing helps.

Unbranded Taper size 28 (huge mistake)

I had a really tough time with these. I sized down one when I got them to 28, and within a few months after I had purchased them gained a few inches in height and as a result several pounds. Needless to say, I was no longer a size 29 waist.

They were pretty damn tight in the thighs and calves, stretched very little. Owned them for about 2 years, wore for probably 8 or 9 months. 1 soak, 1 wash.

They are completely unwearable at this point. Haven't worn them since February. Finally decided to pull them out of my closet and wash them.

I got these on the online store today size 28, tapered. I have a few questions since this is my first time with raw denim. Should I soak them the first day or wait for 6+ months? I've heard mixed things. Is soaking in hot or cold water better?

Don't do a presoak, I'm like 99% sure that these are sanforized.

Just forget the 6 months bullshit rule and wear them for as LONG as possible. Guarantee you'll get some good fades. That was my first mistake when I got my first pair of raw denim (these). I tried to abide by the 6 month rule and was so eager to wash them right when the hit six months, when they barely had any fades. Waste of denim. Glad it was only these I got for $36 bucks.

Cold soaks and hot soaks are alot different. Cold soaks retain indigo, and don't shrink the denim as much. Hoat soaks remove indigo and you will have some shrinkage.
