510's are really the best fitting pants I can find.

would these fade?


Yes, but not in the same way some actual raw jeans would, the contrasting would be different too. All jeans fade, I had some 510's that faded a little, but nothing compared to some of the jeans I've seen on here.

does tapering jeans just make the leg shorter, or does it make it slimmer?

Makes it slimmer, hemming would make them shorter.

If I were to soak a pair of Levis 501 STF, without tapering, would I get a fit similar to the 514 or 511?

Actually, 510 rigids fade nicely for Levi's. Check out this pair that was worn for 4.5 months from a guy named Chemist:

Depends how you size. If you downsize a couple you'd might get a pair that's similar to a 514, but I still think they'd run a little bit looser for a size that you can still wear without having the waist kill you.

anyone have any raw 514's?

If you wash them with detergent, they will definitely shrink back down to normal size if not tighter. Inside out and line dry - if there still too big do a hot soak and machine dry, but be warned this might make them FAR too small.

Trying to locate a pair of Levis 506s in indigo in a sz. 32 or 33 depending on measurements. Anybody got a pair for sale or trade or know where I can buy a pair? Thanks.
Sep 04, 2010 @ 10:51
Im thinking about getting my stf's tapered. The waist fits perfect. There just a little big in the thigh and knee area. How much should I get them tapered?

Did you shrink them initially? I'm assuming you did the whole STF process and most of the shrinkage is gone.

Denim is always gonna stretch back out. It'll contract some once it hits some hot water and will shrink even moreso if you didn't get all the shrinkage out in the beginning. However, after they shrink they'll stretch out again with a few wears.

Yeah I did the initial soak, but after it stretched back out it looks bigger than the pre-initial soak

If it's too big for your liking, do a soak. How long did you wear it for?

Quick question. I'm a little confused between the rigid, Stf, and unwashed color on the amazon site. What's the difference?
