not pre-soaking stf is a horrible idea, they fade and wear just fine after the soak

It wouldn't be advised to not soak them before you wear them. Firstly, the fit of the jeans will look and feel horrible. Plus you will have to buy a perfect fit size meaning you will never wash the jeans since they shrink very significantly. Also if compensate for a bigger size and wear the jeans and then decide to soak them, your honeycombs and fades will be ruined due to the shrinkage of the jeans.

I do not see any benefits with not soaking the STFs when you purchase them. As a healthy pair of jeans need to be soaked to prevent crotch blow outs. Also when your pair of jeans get dirty, you will definitely want to wash them.


I see. Is there a way to not shrink the waist size? And if I were to size up, I can just go one up from what I usually wear, instead of TTS, right?

Sizing on STF are very confusing. Levi's advises you to size up 1 on the waist and 3 on the length. However I've found that the waist does not shrink significantly.

If you're looking for a straight leg type fit, I'd stay TTS on width and size up 3 on the length.
(Personally I found that even after a couple of soaks, the jeans were too loose for my liking.)

If you're looking for a slimmer fit, I would size down 1 on the waist and +3 on the length. After the soak the waist will stretch back out fairly quickly. (This is the route I took.) hypebeast.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2656025&postcount=4773

Does anyone know the difference between 29x29 Levi's 510s for adults, and the size 18 (29x29) Levi's Kids 510, if there is any? They're half the price of the adult ones so I'm wondering why. My sister said the legs on the kids ones might be wider?

I got two pair of stf's ,one indigo and one black pair in 32*36. I soaked the indogos and the inseam shrunk about 4 inches. Should i expect the same from the blacks? I heard black denim doesnt shrink as much...

Obviously, I'm not very fast with denim. I'm looking on Amazon and I'm not even sure what to get (looking at 501 STF's). On the Levi site I see: 501

Sure. Which measurements? I can tell you off the top of my head I got them tapered to a 7.5", and I asked her to start the taper higher because it was super baggy.

i know they do sell a selvage pair, but the one's he's referring to are not. and i remember there being some great debate waaay back in this thread and final understanding was that they were in fact not raw... call me an idiot if i'm wrong

I'm looking at starting with a pair of STF's (the price is attractive at the moment) In other jeans (I've never had levi's or raws) I go 37-38*32 (American Eagle, Hilfiger, CK) What size should I go on the STF?

So I hit up some levis outlet down in the states today and copped a pair of indigo STFs not checking how to size on them before hand. I went TTS on the waist and sized up 4 inches on the length and I was just wondering if I did good or not. Also, I was wondering how should I go about soaking these?

it all depends on what type of fit you're going for and what body type you have. tts on the waist and size up 4 sounds good.

fill up a sink or tub with warm water and give a soak for about an hour and hang dry. wear it when its still damp but not dripping to help stretch the jeans if they shrunk too much and set in the creases.

Yeah I'm looking for a fit slightly slimmer than regular 501s, something similar to 514s would be nice. I'll definitely do a soak first thing tomorrow morning. Good looks man, I just hope I'm left with a decent fit. I'll post pics if I can after.
