i actually ended up buying a pair of these off my friend. the "tapered" fit is actually quite baggy, but the blue selvedge accents are pretty cool. the wash is rather plain though.
u fucking idiot
How much should I size down or up from my actual waist size on a tapered (or any fit) if I want a slim 511 like fit that doesn't look like shit with mid/hightop shoes? I do plan on sagging a bit. I'm 5'6 and normally wear a 29 or 30 waist in levis.

I dropped a can of paint today which splashed onto my jeans. FUUUCCKKKK! So they are now having their first wash for 5 months, I could have easily gone longer if I didn't have the accident.

Wash them if they have decent contrast already. Mine didn't lose too much indigo when I cold machine-washed them at 5 months. Here is what mine looked like after the wash:
I will update in a bit with what they look like after 7 months.
Damn. What do you do while you wear these? Mine don't look like anything close to your's and they're nearing five months as well.
hey modernART how long do you plan on wearing those? your blog on the jeans is dope by the way
