OK
So I was at Wally-World (walmart) at lunch today to see if there were any good post halloween sales. While I was there I decided to see if they had any good thermals out yet. I walked past the denim and couldn't help myself but to grab a pair of raw Rustlers. I will more than likely return them after I try them on tonight because... well... not to be a dick or anything, but THEY CAME FROM WALMART!blushing Anyway, has anyone ever tried these before? They are thick and stiff as hell. I think they were $10. HA!

Thanks

They (rustler) are a bit wide legged, but they are super easy to alter. The flat seam is on the outside of the leg and the normal seam is on the inside. I am going to alter them tonight and see how they fit. They are super stiff. I'll post pics. smokeyface

Okay peeps, sorry about this again but...

After hearing about dick crotch bombings, I am just wondering if I should light starch it later at anytime, or should I just wear it? I'm afraid it losing that stiff feel. Though these haven't stretched out yet, as I put them on once. (not even a soak)

Regarding my PUMA x EVISU.

Will soaking it in hot or cold matter? It's kinda dirty and I don't think I wannt put it in the washer though.
I recall doing a light soak, but not sure if the water rinsed of the sanfordized thing.

I been lookin for some black denim and i need some help on which to choose as I live in Pittsburgh and we dont have any quality denim stores around.
I was thinking about some samurai's because I hear theyre just coated black and fade really nicely. But then i hear their stiff as hell, do they eventually break in or?

Then there was APC NS black and maybe even some Diors if i could find some.

Any help is appreciated..samurais/diors...suggestions?

As far as fit Im into the levi 511, nudie even steven type fit. thanks ahead of time.

I have this pair of black overdyed 501's but since they are 2' or 3' TOO long, I was thinking about getting that tailored to get the tapered fit (I dint know if I should do it because they might look weird) OR just cut the extra 3" (of the length)

so i just bought some black 501 STFs. i really like the raw look of jeans and don't care too much for fades and such.

id still like to shrink them a little bit first, though. should i still soak before wearing, and is there a way to do that without losing much of the inidigo/raw look?

if you like the raw look just go return them for a smaller size.

Sorry if this question has been answered in this thread, but I didn't feel like reading all the pages...

Anyway I just got a pair of raw levi's 501's and i love the way they look and fit but the damn things feel like cardboard they're so damn stiff... what can I do to break them in and make them a little softer (and possibly a bit more fitted) without washing them? thanks in advance

They are called 501 S.T.Fs for a reason. As in Shrink To Fit. Usually on the jeans they have a label for you to sit in a warm bath with the jeans on so they shrink and conform to your body.

So in essence, you purchase them large, then shrink them to fit around your body. As in Shrink-To-Fit.
