Ive researched and read pretty much the entire official denim thread. There is some great info that I gained but I still have a few questions. Most people talk about preshrinking technics with 501 STFs since there obviously made to be done like that. And they talk about the methods of shrinking them without fading when you first buy them. But others talk about treating them like selvage and not washing them for 6 months, than dry cleaning and all that. If you treat them like selvage and dont wash them do you just buy true to size rather than sizing up 1-2 like normal? Also im wondering what kind of length theyve got. Im 6'1 and waist 34. I was thinking 32 length. So my question is if I dont pre-shrink these badboys should I be buying a 34/32? Thanks in advance. Im basically looking for dark rigid straight legged jeans for cheap 30-70$ and would like that shine to them. Maybe I should go a completely different path?
