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.

Yea you can but there will be minimal shrinkage, as I've heard. Try BOILING water.

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.

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.

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

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.
