you did use hot/warm water right? and from my experience putting them in the wash and hang drying them will prevent them from losing their stiffness. however, if you put them in the dryer they will get loose. just buy another pair, and next time go true to size because 501s tend to fit baggy and you have to take into consideration the stretching.

What denim washes/colors do you think are going to be "in" for a while. I know raw/selvage etc is what everyone is talking about right now but I'm talking about colors like the levi's 511 black and grey jeans, those seem to have come and go but you can still catch people rockin them.

has anyone tailored/altered their straight leg raw denims to fit like 511 stretch levis? I want to do it but I'm scared since raw doesn't stretch as much so walking and stuff might be different.

I'm not considering shrink to fit/soaking because after a day or so they're back to the same fit.

do you. don't follow trends of whats going to be in. -_- if i were you i think... hmmm, considering jeans...blue would be a color that's going to be "in" for a while. just a thought.

as far as tailoring, why not just get 511s, instead of tailoring shit to fit like them? i understand you may want to tailor past jeans, but why spend extra cash on old shit when you can get instant gratification with your new 511 jawnz.

there are no colors that are "in"
honestly raw denim will always be "in" around here because its more of a lifestyle/hobby thing because of the whole fading thing and when you get raw jeans they have a nice clean look to them.

but there is nothing wrong with other colored jeans if you can create a good fit more power to you.

except shitty washes your average store are shitty

basically buy the color YOU LIKE!

is it common for raw denim to stretch around the crotch area I guess? I notice that when I stand up, my package kinda moves to the side and gets very uncomfortable and I kinda have to rearrange it lol. Did anyone experience this with their denim?? I dont want my jeans suffocating my shaft now and have my balls feel very uncomfortable, especially during the summer. Lawl. Its a pain when i sit down, then have to stand up

Yeah I get you about the 511s and I actually want to tailor my new jeans I just got, the reason why I stopped looking into levi's is because of the colors they're coming out with 511s, I couldn't seem to find a nice dark denim wash I liked but I found a pair similar to the fit but its about an inch or less wider and the smallest difference bugs me because I can notice it haha

oh okay, a good tailor should be able to take care of that for you, just make sure he/she knows exactly what you want to do and exactly what he/she is going to do doing.

Total n00b question, but do Levi STFs shrink TO or FROM tagged size? I'm pretty sure it's the latter, just making sure.

It shrinks from tagged, so if its tag say..34, it should shrink to about a 32.

Probably at least one, but be careful becuase RRL denim is vanity sized so sometimes its tagged a 34 but its actually a 30 or its tagged 28 buts it a 30, its pretty confusing so make sure you get accurate measurements or try it on

just have the person measure out the dick for you.

rrl sizing differs depending on its generation.

the ones with loopy arcs are true-to-size

the one with NO arcs are vanity.

hope that helpz

the best i can scrounge up is the grifters true to size or sized up. slackers slouch like the levis 520, meaning they have a lower front rise and a higher back rise, in fact they have about two inches on the backrise for the ns, 15.6 compared to 13.75. the grifters have 14.75 backrise. the cougars are a regular fit and also have that huge back rise, bigger leg opening, and a bigger girth on the thighs. soo imo, the grifters, i could be wrong but research more. either way you get quality denim.

so seeing how ive gained a better knowledge about denim from forums like these, I was wondering how much it actually costs to make "Raw" denim, specifically brands like Iron heart which go for 400+ and nudies etc.

All clothing brands are definately overpriced, but is it actually costly to make these jeans?

At the end of the day they know consumers will buy

maybe someone will correct me if im wrong
but i dont think they are worth $300+

but its the time and labor they put into the jeans, which is why they are good quality at the same time

i dont know how long it takes to finish a pair of jeans but if it's a long time I wouldnt charge $40.

wild educated guess

someone correct me if im wrong

Its the usually the construction of the denim itself, every company is able to have their own unique pattern of indigo that fades. Brands that are stocked by selfedge run about 250$+ is because of quality, durability, and construction. Such brands like FlatHead offer one of a kind fading system that's incomparable to any other company, I would say thats one of the reasons why JP denim is so costly.

But the making of jeans, is probably cheaper but not by much at all. JP denim that is stocked in the USA has to go through shipping and customs which can add a bunch of money to when you purchase.

The actual cost to make these jeans are probably less than $100.

But (something I learned in my econ class) product differentiation from these companies prevent others from copying them, and these companies produce jeans that are specifically unique - which is conspicuously worth that extra $200-300.

Levis noob question
Whats the difference between the 511, 514, and 520 models.
I know the 511 is slim but is it like super slim like a NS?
And which 501 model is cut slimmer? The LVC line?

You can actually look this up on Google or the Levi's website. No need for experienced denim experts to waste time.

Hell, you could even learn the differences just by diving into the Levi's denim thread.
