For a slim fit I would go 1 size down from TTS. Like I said I got true to size & I machine dried and they still have some excess room in the thigh & leg area. But its better than before

Have you done a pair that was sized down 1? I'd think that sizing down and then doing that initial hot soak would make them really tight.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

I have not done size 1 down yet but TTS is good. I didn't really like them until I machine dried them.

could i soak my 501xx non STF after they been worn?
November 16, 2009 @ 20:09:51
Yea you can but there will be minimal shrinkage, as I've heard. Try BOILING water.
November 16, 2009 @ 20:27:00
i dont want to shrink i just want them to stiffen up

I was going through my closet today. Found my 520s from about 3 years ago. Decided to try them on to show everybody how they looked like now.

5'7 / 150lbs

If anything, I need a fit similar, but not hugging my thunder thighs so much.

Went through my old denim today. Pulled this pair of 520s out from 3 years ago. Here's how they fit (for those who haven't seen 520s before):



Need to find a pair of denim with a similar fit. As some of you know, 520s have a roomy thigh (good for my thunder thighs) and a tapered leg.

Hella hip flare.

You can buy it in a bottle at a store like target, just spray and iron.

hey technique i got a question, i have these 501xx preshrunk, and there kinda loose and i need to stiffen then up, whats the best way to do this?
November 19, 2009 @ 18:49:16
They already been through the factory wash so a lot of the starch has been taken out, I suggest you buy the 501xx STF since its in its raw state and when you soak it, it will still be stiff afterwards.

Trust me, I don't want to get anything tighter than the 520s I'm wearing up there^.
November 19, 2009 @ 23:45:35
where can you find 520s now?
tillys and urban don't carry em anymore
November 20, 2009 @ 10:34:37
^macys should have them
November 20, 2009 @ 12:33:50
with STF's do you want to wash them as little as possible in the washer? whats the point of people wearing them so long with out washing?
November 20, 2009 @ 12:49:41
u want to soak when u first get them to get the shrinkage out of the way, and then wear as long as possible w/o washing to let the fading get in before u start washing out the excess dye

Anyone know how to size for saddlemans? Yes, i've searched the thread and yadadyada, and no one seems to know. I wear a 30 in APC's - meaning I sized down two. thx
November 20, 2009 @ 22:45:10
i havent been lurkn' around enough, but is there a STF guide or any link that shows you how to soak em'?
November 20, 2009 @ 23:47:16

Well if your true waist size is a 32" I recommend sizing up one for saddleman's.
So a 33" waist should be fine for you.
or at least it worked out fine for me when I sized.
