Anyone know where I can find some black 520's in a 36x32
Jun 19, 2012 @ 19:26
I'm pretty new to this thread, but I've been doing a lot of searching on here to see where and how I can get a good looking fit. Today I'm going to buy some Levi STF's and wanted to know how I could get a good looking slim fit with some stacks. I normally wear 34/32 in 511's and they fit perfect with 1 soak and 1 wash. I also have 514's that are in 32/34 and it's a little "baggy or "airy" for my taste and not as slim. I don't want it too look too tight. I'm 5'11" 175lbs if that helps.

What size should I get for Levi's STF'S if I wanted a slim fit look with some stacks?
Jun 19, 2012 @ 22:48
Youre not going to get a slim fit out of 501 stf unless you can size down like 4 sizes or have huge legs...you just said 514's are to baggy.

Just get some raw 511's off the levis site

anyone got any evo pics of the 511 commuter indigo's? been wearing mine for 6 months or so and they still look new!

Hey everyone

im new here and thinking about checking into some levis STF
have been wearing Levis 505 lately and really liking the fit.

My measurements
6 feet height
175lbs weight
31 waist size in 505's with bit of gap, maybe can squeeze into 30 waist size

Here are some pictures of myself wearing levis 505 in 31x32.



What do you think of my fit? I think 32 is a good length, but thinking to try 34 length to get more stacking. I dont have super skinny legs, so dont know if i will ever like wearing 511 skinny jeans. Probably stick to straight leg 505. I have a pair of Levis 501's in 32x32, and they fit tighter on the waist and legs, but the ass part bubbles out??? Does anyone have this problem? Its like theres ALOT of extra fabric in the ass, puffs out and looks really bad. Thats why i am not sure if i wanna buy another 501. Is it because 501's are suppose to be worn higher on the waist than the 505s?

Should i go for 30x34 levis 505 next time? would more stacking look better?

Also if i get 501 STF, what size should i get? 31x34? 31x36? for my 6feet height.

I went through the 192 pages of this levis thread in few hours, looking at all the pictures
I like this fading stacking stf jean pic the most...


Are these 501s or 511s? The back part isnt puffed out with too much fabric, which is good.
The fade and stacking on front looks really good too. What colorway are these jeans?

Thanks

Jun 20, 2012 @ 06:42
^ You sure those a 511s and not 510s? They look skinnier then 511s
Jun 20, 2012 @ 06:57




Ok, this is a picture of my 32x32 501 in black. I dont understand why the size 32 waist on these 501s fit tighter than my 31 waist 505's? Do 501s fit tighter on the waist than 505s? Also can you see the buldge puffed out ass on these 501s.. there is too much fabric and just looks really weird. Did i get a bad pair of 501s? Am i suppose to wear 501s higher up?
If i buy shrink to fit 501s. should i get size 32 waist or 31 waist like my 505s?

Thanks
Jun 22, 2012 @ 17:40
Youre not sizing them right lol.
They fit in between 514 and 511.


Let me ask you then... how would you compare the fit on 501's to 513's? I find 514 @sz34 are too baggy on the leg and 511 @sz34 are too tight.

513s are perfect. I have the same problem with 514s and 511s. 514 are slim on the thighs then straight throughout the leg which makes them sorta boot cut. 513s are jus slim throughout the whole leg

yeah the back tends to do that since the rise on the 501 is so high. i still wear mine on the hips and it doesnt look too bad. (STFs)

Those pics at the bottom are my jeans. They're indigo 501's. Measure your true waist size and get that size. Measurements on that specific pair of mine is tagged 32 x 38. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Jacket sizing looks good. Personally, I don't like the rolled up cuff look.
With those shoes, I think slimmer jeans would look better. 521, 513, 511.
These model can usually be found in most department store.
Also, consider a pair of raw denim ("Rigid"). Those are more in style now, and I personally think washed/distressed usually looks bad.

Doesn't necessarily have to be Levis either. Pacsun and similar stores have decent denim too.
Check out Gap's new selvedge denim (not last year's model, but the "updated" one). You should be able to find them on Gap.com. At $70 with very frequent 20-30% off, those are a great deal. r

I'd give your current fit a 5/10.

damn 5/10 lol

well the shoes, i just threw em on... i actually usually wear my all white stansmith adidas shoes instead. For jeans,, i dont think i can wear 511. its too damn tight.... i dont know how people wear skinny jeans??? I do have muscular legs and i want to be comfortable, so thats why i stick with straight leg jeans. I just ordered a pair of Levis 501 shrink to fit black from zappos. I will get it by tomorrow!! It will be my first pair of shrink to fit raw denim? and hopefully it will fit me nice! I did not go for the rigid STF colorway, because i didint like the stitching color,,, and also i need black jeans, so went with the black stf!
Jul 31, 2012 @ 22:25
5/10 ain't bad. Your fit definitely isn't "bad", but it's different compared to most fits found on this website. Not a typical "hypebeast"fit.

IMO, (and opinions of different men's style magazine), all guys need a pair of dark indigo pair of jeans. They just go well with everything.

In terms of shoes, they just seem "flat" compared to straight legged jeans. Stan Smiths would definitely be better. Your pant legs seem to swallow your shoes.

I understand the 511 as those are super skinny. Try sizing up, and sagging (they're meant to be low rise anyways). Also, Consider the 513, slim straight, or even 521/520 tapered. I'm positive they will look much better.

Definitely share your experience with the 501 stf. Tagged size/actual size/shrunken size would be super helpful for others looking to get a pair of STF (like me haha).

Yeah, first pair of STF im going with black and i will share pictures later when i get em. I would buy stf indigo, but they dont have it in stock right now, only the rigid and i didnt really like it. Indigo should be my next pair of shrink to fits.

Yes these shoes are really slim and flat, they are feiyue shoes. They are really good for martial arts,,, shaolin monks use em and i find them very comfy and also very inexpensive ~$15. Even if i fck them up i wont worry lol.

I normally wear my stansmith white adidas and yes they a bit bigger but still slim and clean. I also bought 2 nike bruin vintage 2012 in 2 colorways, the black suede and blue suede models. Loving the nike bruin vintages, feel so good on feet and look good with jeans.


When i go to the mall. i will try some skinny jeans and the tapered...

For the 501 stf, i got size 32x36. Im 6 feet tall, so 36 is a good length? Does the waist size shrink much? I know it shrinks in length, but how about in the waist?

thanks
Aug 01, 2012 @ 01:58
http://us.levi.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2076855 in Rigid. I recommend as your second pair.

I am 5'8", 165, and a tad overweight (big stomach), but I have thinner legs.
I'm normally size 32 Levis (in 511, 510), size 33 in Unbranded Skinnys. Also size 32-33 in most other jeans/pants.
I normally 30 inseam, or 32 inseam for some stackage.

I've only had 1 pair of Levi STF. I ordered size 31 x 34. Did a hot soak, and air dry. After the soak, length shrunk maybe 1.5in, and waist didn't shrink. After wearing them for 2 days, the waist stretched an inch. At the end, they were still too baggy for me, and I ended up selling them on Ebay for my money back.
Next pair I will purchase will be 30 x 32. (Size -2 down, +2 length).

I feel you on the Feiyue, they seem pretty nice. But with baggier jeans, they just look really small with such a big leg opening. You look like a fit guy, so fitted jeans will definitely look better. No necessarily skinny jeans, but a pair of tapered jeans.

Here are some fit pictures for reference.
Presoak (31x34).


Postsoak



Random outfit I wore with it out. Still too baggy around the thighs, and a little too long.


In the end, they were still a little too baggy. I love the denim though, weight and color. And I will be buying a new pair (30x32) next time I can find one on sale (under $30). I could have put it in the dryer, which would shrink it down a lot, but for my raw denim, I want to keep them dark, and wear them until they fade.

Extra random fit pictures:
Unbranded Skinny 33


Levi 511 Trousers 31 x 32


In my opinion, and in my experience, fitted jeans/pants, tend to look nicer.
Hope it helped.
