^ 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

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)

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


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.

thanks for the help slap

damn i think i ordered the wrong size stf in black.. I am a size 31 waist in 505. I have a pair of regular 501 in 32 waist, and its tighter on the waist than my 31 waist 505. This does not make any sense! How can a 32 waist phbe tighter than a 31? I called up Levis 1800 number and they said it might be a defect. So anyways... for my STF black, i ordered 32x36. Maybe i should have ordered the 31x36 instead because 31 is my real waist size. So basicly the stf dont shrink at all on the waist. When i pick up my stf jean tomorrow, i just need to make sure it fits snug on my waist, then it should be the correct waist size right? If its a tiny bit loose on waist, then i will reorder it in size 31.

I plan to start joining the gym very soon and doing more leg workouts, so my legs might get even bigger lol, so maybe the straight leg will look more fitted later.

For the STF black, i was planning to soak it in hot water, then hang dry, then maybe try using the dryer. I dont know if i really need to follow all the rules people do to wear raw denim lol. Cant we just wash it and use dryer and wear it like normal jeans? Will it fade too fast this way?

Slap, looking at your 501 stf pictures, it didnt shrink at all on the waist lol. Damn levis 1800 lady told me it will shrink on waist. Look at the back view of your pants, there is a big puff on the ass. I dont like that! I hope it doesnt look like that on my jeans. Its like there is all this extra fabric in the ass and looks really weird. The 501 definitely look big on you.

Im also thinking of getting a pair of beige tan color pants like in your last picture. Its a good color and can match alot of different clothing. What is the name of that colorway?

thanks
Aug 01, 2012 @ 04:11
heres the picture of me wearing my regular 501 32waist. See that extra fabric on the back,, looks really bad. I dont have any of these problems in 505 jeans. Im 31 waist in 505. so it doesnt make sense that 32 501 can be tighter? Probably i really got a defect. Overall the regular 501, fits tighter from top to bottom compared to my 505s. I think 501 im suppose to wear it higher, but it feels uncomfortable, and also i dont want my pants falling off which is also bad too.

Remember, these are my opinion and my experience. Results may vary.
YES. Trying them on will your best option. If you try on the 32s, and they fit loose or even fit perfectly, I would reorder size 31. The waist does shrink in the soaking procedure, but in my experience, they stretch back, sometimes even more than the tagged size. So I recommend buying the pair that fits snug (but able to button all the way), soaking them, and wearing them, which stretches them out.

And about working out, I don't think so. Cause the leg opening will remain the same. That's why I recommend "tapered" fit. Same fit around the thighs, but a slight taper to the ankles.

HOLD UP! If you plan on using the dryer, then I'm 100% sure the waist will shrink! I did not use the dryer. The dryer will definitely shrink the waist, by 1-2inches. You can try it, but I didn't want to risk ruining my pair. Follow my recommendation if you DO NOT plan on using the dryer... EVER.

If won't "fade too fast", but the fade just won't have that sexy super-contrast effect.


For my pair, it shrunk slightly on the waist, but wearing it out 2 days, it stretched back to original. NOTE: I DID NOT USE DRYER.

As far as that "bubble butt", I don't think it's aviodable. I'm quite confident that the only solution is to sag or wear it until the denim soften up.
Another example [styleforum.net]


Also, there's always going to be some sizing inconsistency within jean models. Thats why it's best to try them on before purchasing if possible.

I STILL RECOMMEND TAPERED/SLIM PANTS

Aug 01, 2012 @ 04:57
So when i try on my 32x36 stf, i want it to be TIGHT on the waist, because after soaking and wearing it will stretch a little bit and become perfect fit. I guess i wont be using the dryer, because probably wont need to wash these much anyways, its raw denim! I will just soak in hot water, and hang dry them.

yea i hate the bubble butt on 501s, looks retarded. There is none of that problem in the 505 jeans.

thanks
Aug 01, 2012 @ 05:02
and whats the colorway on these pants
Aug 01, 2012 @ 05:05
No problem.

Thats my recommendation.
Yeah, I personally don't put any jeans in the dryer, even my washed ones.
And I'm quite positive the "bubble butt" will go away with wear.
Share your experience with them in the future!

Aug 01, 2012 @ 05:12
Not sure about the color, but they were bought from Urban Outfitters last year for like $15.
Levi 511 Trousers (I had to size -1).
