501 STF (TTS in wait, size up 2 in the leg)
Wore them for about 2 weeks and got a little stretch in the waist before I did this...
...


I love the fit of 501s after they shrink. Not too baggy, and not too slim at all.

Ok so I just picked up two Levis 514's.

The first is a regular 514 Rigid wash. So far, it hasn't seemed to loose any of it's color, but I haven't washed it yet.

The second is a 514 Welder. I'm not sure what the difference is between the regular kind and the slightly more expensive Welder, other than that it comes in different washes and has different pockets in the back. I'm not sure if it's 'rigid' or not. Anyway, this one did have dye transfer. I let it soak in warm water and dried it, and now there isn't any more transferring.

So I have a few questions for both.

1) Will they keep losing dye each time I wash it? Or will the color only fade for the first wash, and keep its color for any future washes?

2) Will washing them make them loose their rigidness?

3) Will either of them shrink a lot after the first wash? I'm mostly worried about the regular rigid wash; like I said I'm not sure if the other is rigid.

4) If they do shrink on their first wash, will they continue to shrink even more for future washes?

Thanks

Why wash before wear? Are they the rigids?

I have just got a pair of the 1966 super slims and they are super tight, is there any chance these will stretch a bit in the waist?

1) Yes. They'll keep losing dye with every wash. Depends how much agitation is going on.

2) Yes. Washing will continue to soften the denim over time. After they dry they'll feel stiff, but they'll soften up quick.

3) Anything made of cotton is bound to shrink a little bit and stretch out a little. It's a constant give and take. If you want to minimize shrink use cold water when you wash and hang dry or dry on low.

4) Same answer as #3

You wouldn't need to wash "Rigid denim" at all before wearing unless you hate the stiff/rigid feel of the denim and want it to soften up. One reason to do a quick soak though is if you wanna wear them damp to set your creases. Other than that there isn't a point to pre-washing a rigid washed denim.

All denim will stretch with wear, just depends on what kind of denim it is and how much give you'll get.

I recently bought some 511's and needed to size up 1. My usual size was tight as hell and very uncomfortable.

Just wear em, no need to do a wash or soak.

now compared to the sands


its obvious that the blue jeans is slimmer, thats because i used the dryer so if you want a slimmer fit use the dryer
