ok,thanks
how should i size down/soak em to make em fit slimmer? pre-wear soak or should i size down a certain amount?


please dont mind the n00b questions


you can size down 1 or buy true to size, true will stretch out comfortably after a hot wash and dry

Like these?

possibly. i've never seen those in person, but look how phoe's fades turned out on his rigids:
hypebeast.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2012724&postcount=2735



With all that said, can someone with a pair of 501s list measurements after a hot soak and wash. I want to know if the inseams on STFs measure the tagged size or if they're off like some denim(Uniqlo S-001 for example, Nx34 measureing .5 less than tagged which would proabably shrink to a dead 33 after washing.). I'm looking to get either a 31x38 or 30x40 depending on whether or not the inseam will shrink a complete 10% like some sites say or simply the general consensus of 3 inches after soaking and washing.


I got 501 STFs tag size 30x34
inseam measured by hand to be 33.5

after hot soak, inseam is 30

You can do what airfred did and go true waist then not hot soak just the waist.


How would I "hot soak" everyhing except the waist and for how long? And how should I size on the inseam to get at least a 30"-32" inseam after the hot soak? Thanks cool

You can use a hanger and keep the waist from touchin the water and soak for about 30+ mins.
And size up 3-4 in the inseam so get like a 34-36.
