Those look huge btw. Even after 2 soaks I doubt that they will fit the way you want. How did you size them?

I personally set the stacks how I wanted them and sat in the tub for an hour in warm-hot water. Make sure it's not too hot to avoid burning suprised .

They're 29x36. I sized down one on the waist. Should I just give them two hot soaks?

I would try 1 hot soak for an hour and see how they fit. I've done 2 soaks before and found that the denim loses a lot of the stiffness after a 2nd soak. If it's a nice day out, wear them around when they're wet(not dripping). It'll help with the creasing and you can force the stacks the way you want them.


Pics of my recently soaked STF. Sized down 1, 31x34.

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.

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.

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?
