fill up a tub with hot water, and let sit for 30minutes, then take them out, hang dry till dry.

when i first get raws what do i do for soaking?

PS: theres levis 501


are they 501xx "shrink to fits"? if they are, clean your bathtub, fill it with the hottest water from your pipe and submerge the jeans fully for a good 30 mins. if you want to go for an hour go ahead, i usually go an hour, but that's just me. or take the eco-friendly route: you can fill a bucket with hot water and soak it in there.

I'm new to this denim thing. What is the difference between STF 501s opposed to just regular 501s

regular 501's have already gone through the process of the shrinking, and may over go some distress or wash.

501 STF's are regular raw, and you have to soak them so they shrink and fit.

Anyone recommend me some strong denim that I can wear daily with a lot of abuse (like riding a bike, going on long walks) stuff like that? I have a pair of Hundreds 'classic' denim that I'm growing to hate. Been wearing them for about 5 months and the crotch is starting to go and the inseem is all worn-out.

ok I gona need someone to answer that has a wide sizing knowledge, I measured my waist and even got someone else to and its 30 and over 31ish lower where I usually wear my jeans.

So i sized down 2 with new standards (to a 2 smokeyface and they were way too big (they were 2nd hand and could of been stretched by previous owner.)



I then got some new cures in 29 (sized down 1) and they look too big for new cures even though i sized down 1


I use to wear grim tims in size 30 which looked like this

so I guess there true to size.

So im really keen on getting some lvc, probaly the 1947's but I wouldnt have a clue on how to size, I sized up on some regular 501's along time (size 33) ago but they came out alot big and baggy after the hot wash. Its wierd my waist is 30.31 but as you can see by my fit pics you wouldnt think so ,any insight?

yer thanks but judging by the sizing of my previous jeans what size? I would say my real waist is 30 and get a 32 ,but my new cures are size 29 and it doesnt look like I sized down at all, getting my point? so even though my waist measures 30 maybe a 31 is actually sizing up 2 in different sense. kinda hard to explain.

dreamkast.

this is basically how it is.


APC's are vanity sized. it basically means. what ever the size is on the tag, add 2.

for example. my true waist is a 29. my new cures are 27 and they are quite loose now because ive stretched them out and i got skinnier, i shudv got 26


your new standards look really big because its already stretched out and its not a slim cut.

your new cures look not that skinny either because you only sized down 1 to a 29. when u shudv sized down to a 28 or even a 27 if u wanted a skinny fit.


but im guessing your waist is about 29 not 30... so if u want lvcs then get some in size 31

They're a slim straight cut. They're not meant to be "tight." I guess you could size down.

I just got some apc new cures yesterday. The guy at the store said to use a spray bottle on the bottom of the crotch to prevent blowouts. How often should I do this and if I do it too much will the dye go away?
