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.

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

When you do wash them, all the fading is going to shift up and around.

I have some shrink to fits that I wore a few times but they are true to size. 36waist, 30length. I'm considering on trying to soak them but how bad will it affect the waist/length? I read a few pages and a lot of posts are saying how to stay true to size on waist but add 3-4 inches to the length..

This was a blind buy, but does anyone know what kind of trouble I'm getting into with these jeans?

*take out the spaces


It's a pair of Levis 591 Rigids that I got in my natural size (32). I personally havent even tried on anything below 514s. I'm a natural 32 with atheletic legs (I'm a 32 with Naked and Famous Weird Guys and they fit fine).

38*38 501 STF Hati, 2 weeks one wash.



after i shrunk them they were so tight that I thought they were cutting the blood from the lower half of my body. I was going to go a month, but they got spilled on and i slipped on the ice (the really light spot in the leg). I just wear them hard, doing everything (they had so much grit from tuning skis) . I washed them really hard. 10 soaks in a sink, one with tide. Rough agitation by hand.

I'm in between a size 31-32. How should I size with 511 khaki's?

After getting them tapered they were still a bit too big/long for my liking so I
did a hot wash/dry.

I bought a pair of STF's in tobacco last week. I sized down one and, man, they were a bitch to button up at first. I wore them around the house for a day or so and then sat in a bathtub with them for 45 minutes or so. I kept pulling at the waistline to stretch them out, then let them dry on me.

I have to say, they fit me better than any pair of STF I've ever owned. I'd post pics but i'm not allowed to yet.
