The Official Levi's Thread

Hi gents,

I know this sounds like it has been asked 1000 times, but after much reading online I still can't find the answer blushing so wondered if you could help?

I see some say you buy 501STF at your normal jeans waist size if you want to wear them without washing at first, and then take a bath with them on after a couple of months, if I understand correctly, but I am struggling with what people mean by normal jeans size blushing

My actual waist measures 29" at the narrowest part, about 32" where I wear my jeans.  I normally wear 29W 501s, but when I first put them on, they are tight, say an inch or two gap between the centre of button and buttonhole on the waist, and then they stretch after a couple of weeks wear and end up being just right (ie the waist button ends up lining up precisely with the buttonhole before I button them up).  I only wash them when I absolutely have to (roughly 6 monthly) I tend to end up wearing them with my bellybutton 3" above the waistband button and without a belt.  I think a bigger size in 501 pre-wash would result in my hoiking them up often blushing .

So, here's the question am I a 30W in 501 pre-washed (but I am sizing down), or am I a 29W in 501 pre-wash?

Thanks,

R

Pretty different. 511s are considered skinny and 501s are straight with a high rise

Don't have any clue about Levis, never been interested in buying branded Jeans. But the more I look in to it, the more people seem to rave about how much better the quality is compared to the £10-20 pairs I usually buy. Do Levis to skinny leg jeans? Not ridiculously tight, not baggy skinny which look like they're just straight, but somewhere in-between. Can anyone recommend me some along these lines?

Can someone give me a suggestion on the 510s? I like that is has the fitted ankles because I hate it when jeans crease at the bottom but I don't want them to be too tight, especially on my groin lol.

Alright, thanks. I go TTS in 511's so I'll definitely size up one on 510's. I'm not a huge fan of stacking so that's part of the reason I was wondering.
Dec 24, 2013 @ 05:07
i found multiple 511's at tj maxx or marshalls for around 20-25 dollars
Dec 27, 2013 @ 22:17
Could you guys give me a legit check if I posted some photos?
Jan 04, 2014 @ 06:59
Has anyone seen a pair of 501s like these? They differ from the other 1947 501s I've seen. These have a hand written tag (no other tagging inside) and the leather patch on the back is different. Any info is much appreciated. Thanks.

Just bought a pair like that at Macy's, but the inside tag doesn't look like that.

Heres an example of how the rigid dragons fade.

I just got them and they smell like vinegar though. does anyone know how to get the smell out without washing?

And by the way are 508s more slim than 513s?

Wow, that's actually way better than I would've expected. The smell is probably from the synthetic material they use for the stretch. I'm sure it will go away. 

Do you just go TTS on those?

Hi I am looking for a pair of Levi's that has a slim fit above the knee and straight lower with 17" hem, preferably that sits at the waist rather than low. Essentially a 501 with the thigh of 527. I'm not sure this combination exists, and I'm guessing these days it almost certainly would be low waist which I could live with. 527 would do me fine except I need a slimmer (though not slim fit) hem width to rein in the shaft on my Justin boots. The 501 hem works perfectly but the upper leg is a little baggy for my liking. Any ideas of anything that comes close to this? Thanks in advance!

you could always try sizing down or tts w/ a pair of STFs if youre looking for raw. if thats not your thing, you could always look into 514s or 513s

be careful what you pretend to be

Apr 10, 2014 @ 08:28
Try the 508 as well, although that is tapered at the hem. 17" is rather large, that would be a 8.5 inch leg opening (measured across)

Most of the Raw made ones fade to a nice, thrashed color after time. In specific, the previous versions of the 511's fade pretty well but i've never tried 510's.
