Sigh, I'm 7 weeks in on my 511 Waterless Selvedge and theres a tiny hole forming on my crotch.

TBH the cheap "rigid" jeans they make blow pretty hard. They fade way too fast and look pretty shitty. Not to mention that after a wash the indigo is all splotchy and weird looking. They stretch pretty noticeably too.

wtf u dont wash those, theyre raw


Well you wash them eventually... for example after a year

@stellar

Looking good for 2 months. Keep it up.
They must fit pretty tight for the crotch to wear so soon.

You can simply reinforce them. I'd do it asap. Prevention is key.

Ight this might be kind of a weak question, but I am looking for a recommendation. I've been wearing 501's but recently, they've grown to be too baggy for me. I have 511 skinny khaki's and I love the fit. Looking to cop a pair of denim ones that are similar. Would 511 denims run true? Any other style built similar? What's a good pair to invest in? I'm sort of a denim noob.
Nov 16, 2012 @ 04:12
@slap Thanks man! I'l try to patch em up asap.

Does the waist stretch on 511 selvedge?
Nov 24, 2012 @ 04:18
@yk-2 Yup, mine stretched quite a bit.

EDIT- Found out his wash was "River soaked"

Anywho, my friend bought a pair of Levi's Water>less Selvedge (same as I) from Nordstrom Rack *TODAY* and his pair looked really different from mine. Can anyone explain why?
HE GOT HIS TODAY.
Pics
His: Left Mine: Right

His pair had some creases on the knee and a knee buldge. Mine had nothing when I purchased mine.


His pair had somewhat faded honeycombs, when mine didn't


Detailed combs (NOTE: HE BOUGHT HIS TODAY AND THEY'RE FADED COMBS)


His pocket is bigger and his stitching has more arc.


His patch is of a different material


Detail [(His) (Feels really stiff compared to when I first purchased mine)]


Detail (Mine)


We were just wondering why they were so different.

Those are pre distressed jeans, thats why. Each pair isnt going to be the same

bout to cop some calder "rigid" dark blue indigo selvadge , it doesnt say "raw" does that mean they dont fade like raw jeans or are they raw

bein edgy aint all its cracked up to be

Levis rigid = raw, so far as I know. Calder looks like good denim, deep indigo and a bit of nep?
Nov 25, 2012 @ 05:24
I copped a pair of matchsticks at nordstroms rack on black friday. Sized down one, fits real nice.
Nov 27, 2012 @ 10:03
anyone own an monochrome 511 anthracite? shits tight af

Found 2 new pairs of 514's in my closet that I got for Christmas last year. Totally forgot I had them. They're 36x30, but I've lost a good amount of weight and I'm down to a 32" waist line now. Would if worth it to try and shrink these down to fit me, alter, or would I be better just selling them off or exchanging them for my size?

Noooooooo, I blew a whole in my crotch D:

they'll fade like raw denim. any selvedge jeans made by levi's will fade like "raw denim".
Dec 04, 2012 @ 03:40
I just noticed this on my saddlemans http://i50.tinypic.com/j64ygw.jpg
Are size 28's just like this, or were these tapered?

Don't bother, just sell/exchange.

@SkeeterValentine
I don't own selvedge Levis, but my Unbrandeds are BDGs are like that naturally.

me too man. they where so pretty, had em for 3 years now smh

i got some 508's, i wanna get the leg tappered, you guys think i should soak em first?
Dec 05, 2012 @ 16:51
Got some black 511 skinnys TTS but theyre a bit baggy for me. Would washing shrink em a bit? Cold/warm wash + hang dry correct? Not exactly denim care, but I figure I should wash all my pants like that.
Dec 05, 2012 @ 20:16
^ hot for shrinkage, but they'll more than likely stretch back to original size with wear

I've been trying for months to find a rigid tucker jacket (indigo) and still can't find one. Now the Levis site finally has them in stock, except there's no smalls. Anyone have ideas or know a place?
Dec 10, 2012 @ 16:02
Anyone know where to find the Made in USA 511's cheaper than levis.com?
