They slightly shrink, but stretch back out.


Alright thanks!

Looking for 501 Saddlemans sz34-36

i think 510 and 511 has 1% spandex for stretch so you should be fine. correct me if im wrong.

Only some 511s have 1% spandex and 510s have 2% spandex, sometimes 1%

these are my sized down stfs, post soak w/ maybe 2 days of wear...







presoak, it was nearly impossible to button all the buttons. it definitely took some dedication. i bucket soaked in hot water for about 30 minutes, then i hand stretched the waist out and showered in them for about 20 minutes. i wore them until dry.
i'm pretty indifferent when it comes to these stfs.

opinions?

They look great. How much did you size down?

too tight
Aug 15, 2010 @ 22:56
Fit really looks too small and uncomfortable

You managed to turn 501's to 511's.. congrats.

picked up a pair of Made & Crafted jeans this weekend (Sparkys or something, I forget the exact name)... they might be my new go-to pair to replace the selvedge Helmut Lang's i've been wearing for a few years.

the wash on them is almost perfect, and they're a really good quality denim too. the HL's i had were almost identical, but the denim seemed a little thinner, and therefore wore out a lot faster. I had one pair go from new to unwearable in under a year. Hopefully the Levi's don't do the same.

price was def right too, which is a plus

what do yall think about the Clot Survival 505









not gunna lie, I kinda like the way they look
Aug 17, 2010 @ 08:32
they're perfect for japanese hype, other than that - not sure what to say.
Aug 17, 2010 @ 09:48
ya they dope but im more into a hard denim instead of a washed jean
Aug 17, 2010 @ 10:38
I think the patches kinda ruin them.
Aug 17, 2010 @ 12:52

i mean i guess the fit of the survivors are nice
but im still ehh about the overuse of the patches

Had these 501's for about 2 months but just got them tapered

Aug 19, 2010 @ 23:43

You serious? gtfo
Aug 20, 2010 @ 00:02
@Quan. That is the worst fit I have ever seen on 501s. You make them look like 550s, which are pretty baggy, painter jeans that Levi's discountinued
Aug 20, 2010 @ 00:09
nah im sorry yall but I like em baggier like this.
Aug 20, 2010 @ 06:06
^ windex.
Aug 20, 2010 @ 10:54
Thanks for the info.
Gonna lay off my Unbrandeds and work on these.

- measure your true waist (not what your jeans tag says) and then subtract 2 to 3" for the waist
- for the inseam add 2 to 3"...generally for 32 inseam I would get 34"
Aug 20, 2010 @ 16:20
^ thanks guys. I'll post fits after I pick them up.

arent you supposed to add to the waist since they shrink?
Aug 20, 2010 @ 23:28
^ lol that's what Levi's advice is. It ends up being baggy that way. A good fit is TTS as the waist doesnt shrink too much. Definately would not advise going down 2 to 3'' as bull.flag is suggesting.. blinkyeyes
Aug 25, 2010 @ 03:29
I got measured at San Francisco's Levi's Store and they put me at 33-34. No way in hell am I a 34. I went with 30 and they fit perfect.
Aug 25, 2010 @ 03:33
did anyone watch the levi's story the other night on nbc?

*small update on my 501stf sized down 2-3 (28 x 34)
after a week and a half of solid wear, they have become comfortable. waist has stretched; it is still a little tight, but becoming more and more comfortable everyday. buttons are quick and easy to button and there is no pain anymore. despite what you guys say, i'm loving the fit.

cock room has also expanded blushing
