Turn them inside out and you could either soak them(i know there not stf) or wash them, and they should shrink.

air dry, or in the dryer if you want them to shrink even more.

bosc0 where are you looking?

Most Australian sneaker stores should stock denim and a lot of them do stock LVC, especially 501's.


just had a scour through a local mall. Yet to check GenPants or the Levi's store on Chapel blinkyeyes
Aus sneaker store = either footlocker or skate store?

Just quietly between us. Whats LVC and saddleman? ?)

edit: are these homo? ebay link

You're looking in the wrong place. What part of Aus do you live in?

I've noticed all online US stores won't ship Levi's to Aus, must be trying to keep it continental?

Small question...

I've been wearing some Indigo STF's for maybe 3 months now. If I wash them I'm wondering what they're gonna look like.. Will there be any good fades or what?

They've never been washed or soaked by the way...
Sep 16, 2008 @ 23:06
Do Levi's run different numbers in different countries? Went on a mission looking for some black 501s or 511's, could only find some 504's here in Aus.




Anyone know what US 50's they fit like or if they'll shrink/stretch (waist)?


if i'm not mistaken, 504's are just a variation of the 501's. i have a pair of 503's and they are the same legs/fit as 501s except slight low-rise. 504's are probably very close to 501's
Sep 16, 2008 @ 23:08
its going to shrink like crazy, itll lose it sheen and look cheap

Aus is getting more LVC soon, atleast I know Perth is but Sydney should definitely have LVC.

Go check out Provider in Melbourne, I hear they are pretty dope.

Or;
http://www.sneakerfreaker.com/shopguide/?country=AUSTRALIA&city=MELBOURNE&search.x=44&search.y=15

Browse through that.

It also helps to ask around at stores for certain products, some places may be iffy to help you out (if they are cunts or not) but if you know your shit they should point you in right direction.

That is a good time to come to Perth.
The stores I visit are telling me very good things about early 09.
Sep 17, 2008 @ 00:01
hypism how those stfs lookin??

pics?


I wear em baggy so the fading and honeycombing is minimal.. I'm about to just wash em anyway..

not to mention the lack of clothes worn by all the smokin ladies you have over there....smokeyface

2 birds, one stone.
Sep 17, 2008 @ 01:14
I washed em lol...
Sep 17, 2008 @ 16:19
I tried em on today.. They're basically just darker, lost their sheen, and tighter..
Sep 17, 2008 @ 16:55
What size should i get in stfs if i want a slim fit? My waist size is like a 29 or 30.
Sep 17, 2008 @ 19:06
how badly will the 514 slim straights shrink in the wash?

Sep 17, 2008 @ 20:18
I don't think they shrink that much.
Sep 18, 2008 @ 21:01
so i soaked my 501 stfs like a month ago and am wearin em to school pretty much every day. when I soaked em, i did a warm soak and it didnt shrink to the maximum. I want em a little smaller, is it a bad idea to soak em again or what?.
Sep 19, 2008 @ 00:38
don't soak
Sep 19, 2008 @ 10:10
my levi 501xx
i had them tailored and had the thigh down to the leg opening narrowed, i forget the thigh but the leg opening is 8.5", they fit like my gap morrisons now

I'm a bigger dude so 501's start to look too wide and baggy, plus i bought these w/ a 36" inseam and are now a 34.5" as compared to my morrisons which were 32"
these were orginally a 40x36 and shrunk down to 38x34.5

Orlando, FL. OG as fuck.

Sep 19, 2008 @ 10:22
are the 1947 501xx 14 ounces?

I actually never looked into how many ounces the raw LVC's were. I was under the impression that they were 14oz, but a few are stated at 12.5oz

Can anyone shed a little light?
Sep 20, 2008 @ 12:26
I wear baggy jeans, so what size 501 STFs should I get? Size up?
Sep 20, 2008 @ 12:31
Size up.


As the name says, they're made to Shrink to Fit.
