How long do STF's take to settle / get softer? They're so rigid right now


Probably within the 3rd or 4th wear.

Thoughts on these 520s? Been sitting in the closet for 3 years:



Too tight?


^if thts too tight then 511's wouldnt b so popular


Nah, can't go any tighter than those^. lol


What's everybody else's thoughts on them?

I need some help from the experts on this thread. So I finally purchased my first 501 STF yesterday. I went with 32x34 (My regular size is 32x32), I hot soaked my jeans for about 45 mins and wore it outside to play basketball after drying them for about an hr. Now I still think my jeans are too long, which caused my jeans to sit near my ankles and created crease down there instead of honey combs on the knee area. I thought they are supposed to shrink about 2 inches and end up as 32 but it didn't. what did i do wrong here? was my water not hot enough? or I need to soak them again for longer period this time? I will really appreciate any kind of help. Thank you!

So yesterday i copped a pair of 501 stf's, and i hot soaked them last night for 35-40min, then dried overnight. They resulted in being a little more fitting but still not my ideal fit and way more stiff than theyre supposed to be. So to shrink them again do i just hot soak again today? if so for how long? thanks in advance

You should wear them until 6 months, then soak them in hot water for 20-30 minutes and maybe add a bit of cornstarch spray(you can find this at your local drugstore)

yeah rigid

and what happens if you dont soak 501 and wear them alot, then decide to soak them? will the results be different than soaking them first?


Tell us how it is to feel cardboard jeans lol!

Flamebot. Unfortunately, there is not really a way to speed up the process. 3 months is not a long time. Be patient.
