510s are 511s with more of a taper in the legs.

What is the best levis for a straight fit?


501s would be a good choice.

Just got some Levi's 510 about 2-3 weeks ago, I hear they shrink after soaking, since they aren't sanforized, and I know they aren't really "raw" but just "rigid" but, should I soak them before anymore wear or will the fading process be better without the soak? Does it even matter?

I think it looks good. No need to size up imo.

I wear 511s, 501s, and 505s.

Do 511s shrink in waist if you put them in the dryer?

They slightly shrink, but stretch back out.

i think 510 and 511 has 1% spandex for stretch so you should be fine. correct me if im wrong.

Only some 511s have 1% spandex and 510s have 2% spandex, sometimes 1%

these are my sized down stfs, post soak w/ maybe 2 days of wear...







presoak, it was nearly impossible to button all the buttons. it definitely took some dedication. i bucket soaked in hot water for about 30 minutes, then i hand stretched the waist out and showered in them for about 20 minutes. i wore them until dry.
i'm pretty indifferent when it comes to these stfs.

opinions?

picked up a pair of Made & Crafted jeans this weekend (Sparkys or something, I forget the exact name)... they might be my new go-to pair to replace the selvedge Helmut Lang's i've been wearing for a few years.

the wash on them is almost perfect, and they're a really good quality denim too. the HL's i had were almost identical, but the denim seemed a little thinner, and therefore wore out a lot faster. I had one pair go from new to unwearable in under a year. Hopefully the Levi's don't do the same.

price was def right too, which is a plus

@Quan. That is the worst fit I have ever seen on 501s. You make them look like 550s, which are pretty baggy, painter jeans that Levi's discountinued
