hey guys. im a denim noob and need help =] . went to the mall today and was tryin on 501 STF's but wasnt sure what size to get.
i tried on a pair of 38W 36L and thats the correct fit i want them to end up being after shrinkage, fading, stacks, etc.
u guys have more experience than me in this, and im trying to get two pairs of 501 STF's so according to my size, what size should i order online?
also, one of the pairs i want to fade in more, so i guess that requires more soaks . . . BUT does that mean that with each soak (and for how long) the denim will continue to keep shrinking, even after the initial 30 min soak im going to do for both?
If your waist is; Increase size by
27 - 36"; 1"
38 - 46"; 2"
50 - UP 3"
If your inseam is; Increase size by
27 - 34"; 3"
36"- & up; 4"
Majority of the shrinkage will happen in the 1st and 2nd soaks, also soaking doesn't give you more fades, how much work you put them in will. Soaking will prevent crotch blowouts, rips etc because without letting your jeans hit water it weakens the material. Also people usually soak whenever the denim starts to stink, just use woolite with cold water, don't necessary have to soak them if you do this method.
I hope that helped
