Those 511's came out great.

If I want to return my 514's(not raw) back to their slim shape (cause they stretched out), should I give them a hot soak or cold soak? And should I do that thing where you where em right after the soak? Thanks
Jan 03, 2011 @ 20:36
hot soaks will give the most shrinkage and indigo loss, so its kinda the opposite for cold soaks, if you're worried about creasing, they will come back once they dry out n you wear em. but since your 514's arent raw theyll stretch out quickly

and thanks for the comments on my 511's yall

hows the fit on those?
assuming they're the same as these:
http://us.levi.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4101270&clickid=cart
according to the reviews on their site they're tighter around the waist
Jan 05, 2011 @ 20:52
^^^theyre actually the soft ridged's instead of the ones u showed
my true size is a 31.5 but i went with a 32.
As far as the fit goes, it streched out to practically a full size up everywhere, they started to become more of like 514's with a taper at the end of em

What kinda levi's are these and how do you get them to fit like that (except for a guy of course lol)
Jan 09, 2011 @ 14:28
Yo, gotta question if anyone could answer that'd be great

copped 511's, but i peeped the one percent elastane, and i was wondering if these stretch out like uniqlo denim, and how much they stretch out, im wearing a size 32x32

should i stay TTS?

or should i return them and go to a 30x32 to accomodate for stretching?

id rather not, so i was wondering if stretching is severe
Jan 09, 2011 @ 23:05
how should I go about washing a pair of saddlemans? hand washed in cold water w/ some detergent?

^ I usually wear 31, but sized down to 30x30 for my 511s.

They're a perfect fit right now, but I'm throwing these in the washer/dryer to shrink them down. I'll rock them after and stretch them back out.
Jan 10, 2011 @ 18:28
i cant believe they changed the fit on the 510s. So shitty now.


What do you mean?

I tried on some 32x30 510 in black, and the fit is sex.
Jan 11, 2011 @ 13:27
so should i size down to a 30 due stretching?
and is it severe stretching?

this is my 1st time buying the 511 model


oh and btw, im 160 lbs.
Jan 11, 2011 @ 22:13
^ Can you try them on anywhere?

I'm 5'7, 160 lbs. 30x30 fit perfectly on me because 511s do stretch (I shrunk them in the dryer yesterday, and shit still fits perfectly).
Jan 12, 2011 @ 14:16
thanks man, mad helpful.
Jan 15, 2011 @ 17:52
hi heres my soft ridged 511's
i was surprised how nice they came out
6months of on n off wear 5washes



i got some 511's rigids (overdye) that i been wearing for 1 year and 3 months. they faded a lil but not like this. and i never washed them. should i finally was?
Jan 15, 2011 @ 18:06
^^^to tell you the honest truth man, wash em when you feel like it,
i did like a wash after every month or so with those, but i also did a lot of activities biking, skating, parties, hiking, camping, i did it all in them lol
Jan 17, 2011 @ 06:23
After getting them tapered they were still a bit too big/long for my liking so I
did a hot wash/dry.



That's a mean fit.
Jan 17, 2011 @ 11:07
thinkin about coppin a new pair of stf's. anyone know the difference between sand and kakhi stf's? they both look similar online blushing
Jan 17, 2011 @ 16:58

I saw the sand today and it's really light. AFAIK the khaki STFs are discontinued.

From lightest to darkest:

Sand>Khaki>Tobacco

Make sure you size up 4 for either sand or khaki stfs because they run very small

Seems a bit extreme. I have the Khaki 501XX Shrink-to-Fit in the same waist (31) as all my other 501XX Shrink-to-Fit from this decade (ie. LVC sizing can be different).
Jan 19, 2011 @ 17:05
That's a mean fit.


ass looks weird imo
Jan 19, 2011 @ 21:41

Jan 21, 2011 @ 11:20
rigid is not raw no. Got a pair of brown 511's the other day, kinda dissapointed with the fit. May have to get em tapered a little from knee down.
