damm..threw up all over my stfs last night.was trying to go all summer without a wash but up until that i've been pretty impressed they definetly hold a candle to my other better quality denim;twas a good summer project.....
just picked up. probably going to soak them tomorrow. how long should they soak?
Originally posted by Inactive UserThose 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 .
They're 29x36. I sized down one on the waist. Should I just give them two hot soaks?

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.
If I were to soak a pair of Levis 501 STF, without tapering, would I get a fit similar to the 514 or 511?
Okay so I have been wearing my STFs for a lonnnnngggggg time and they stretched a lot is there any way to shrink them again without tapering???
