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.

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.

The blog I write for is doing another Levis give away. Chambray zip hoodie. Pretty nice! I actually own this piece and I like it a lot. Just waiting for the right weather to wear it. I remember it being priced at $98 http://thetribunaltoday.com/blog/?p=708

So I did my a soak to shrink these 501STF and I gotta say, they fit rather nice. Still a little room for improvement but not bad.

They are in-stock online again.

Bought the 32x34s, but I'm concerned about whether they will shrink or not. The guy in the Levi store told me that they are pre-shrunk, but I'm not sure how much he knew -_-

Selling (if my sig still lists it, it's still available!): N&F Japan Heritage 32, N&F x Big John 31 and 32

The fit on my behind is loose. Is there anyway I can fix this, or will it go down with wear? It's not noticeable if I'm wearing a t-shirt over it.

How much do STF shrink if they were soaked once already? Does the length continue to shrink?

Length doesn't shrink anymore after 1st soak. Waist will when soak or wash but they will stretch back out.
