they stay pretty skinny still, except in the thighs, those will get super loose
but that could be because i bike lol


This is no joke. I'm about a week in on some rigid 511s and everything above the knees now fit like my 501s (except the waist)...

FUCK MY NIGGER DAD

Nov 20, 2010 @ 18:33
i cant believe they changed the fit on the 510s. So shitty now.


What do you mean?

Looking to get some new selvage. Where can I purchase LVC saddlemans in person in NYC? If I'm a 36/34, what size do I purchase?

Also for 501xx STF, if I'm normally a 36/34, what size should I purchase?

Thanks everyone.

@nail

For stf:

TTS(true to size) waist. up 4 for stacks.
slimmer fit size down 1 for waist.


est. 3months

Nov 29, 2010 @ 10:13
Anyone know where to find 501xx LVC in Miami/Sofla? Or online maybe? If I'm a 32 waist and relatively tall (6'1"), should I stay with 34" inseam, or try to find a 36" as they will shrink down 2 inches.
Nov 30, 2010 @ 22:58
Go with the 36's. Im 6'1 too and i made the mistake of gettin 34's. They shrunk to a 31 inch inseam and looked like high waters

How many people taper their 501stf? My tts waist pair has been worn lightly on and off for 8 months and don't really have any fades going besides on the wallet pocket, and I am kinda guessing it is due to being to wide in the calf. Anyone with pics of some tapered?
Dec 01, 2010 @ 10:04
Being wide in the calf shouldnt prevent you from achieving fades. You should have defined honeycombs and whiskering if you've been wearing them for 8 months.

levis was my first love for denim.
LVC 501 saddlemen. i still own my pair from the release date.
been threw a couple washes(i was a dummy and never new about soaking)
anyways they still look dope, fit great.
i also had a pair of andy warhol's bannana print joints.
i love the fit and feel of levis.
Dec 01, 2010 @ 21:27
My Haiti Stfs are almost two weeks in, with my obsessive hand washing, the fades in the front are coming quite nice - however irregular.
Dec 01, 2010 @ 22:37
hey guys im on 12 months with my stf. when i first got em i did two hot soaks. since i they haven't touched water in like 11 months if i wash them now will they shrink?

Dec 02, 2010 @ 17:43
12 months, post some pics after wash.
Dec 03, 2010 @ 21:15
does anyone know of a pair that is 510 and raw?
Dec 05, 2010 @ 21:20
Has anybody tried the levis selvage panel pants that came out a little while back? Thinking about buying a pair online but not sure about the fit.
Dec 05, 2010 @ 21:53
you guys have any advice about achieving fades? i've been wearing my levi's for about 2 months and am seeing minimal fades. they're pretty much only on back pocket that holds my wallet.

Tightness, If your jeans are too loose you won't get as many fades.
Starch will help with the stiffness and more friction. And if you don't really do much in them - fades are going to take a long time... My STF's are 2 weeks in now, and I have a lot of fading going on from washing my hands and thigh rubbing them.

I went TTS and the waist is barely stretching. In time I guess.
Dec 06, 2010 @ 19:30
i bought mine tts also, i didn't do something right i guess.
Dec 07, 2010 @ 20:47

Dec 07, 2010 @ 23:45

I washed my two weeks in. Wash your jeans if you feel they are dirty. Maybe I'll pit pictures up in a bit.
