Hey guys. I've recently purchased a 501xx STF selvage 32x34. I usually wear a 32x30. I plan to wear about an inch cuff with these jeans.
The jeans are a little baggy at the moment and I was wondering should I soak them now so they fit? Or should I break them in a little (6 months of wear) before I soak? Are there any benifits to wearing them for a while before soaking?
If I were you, soak them first before you start wearing it so all the shrinkage is out of the way. If you decide to hot soak later adn you already have your fades, your honeycombs and stacks are gonna be out of place. I don't know any benefits to wearing them before soaking. My unbrandeds were fine til I soaked them and all my fades got messed up.
you have a direct link for these on the levis site? not sure which one it is. thanks
I didn't buy mines from levis.com but they were labeled as Black Rigid STF.
what size are those STF's?
28x36. I sized down one cause I didn't want a baggy/ messy fit at the knees down.
