Yea the high taper and 501 ct both have too aggressive of a taper. Looks even worse when the knee starts to bag out. That's why I'm just getting 501s tapered myself to like a 7.25" opening. And will probably remove the picket arcs too...

I've got some levi 501s I want to taper a tad more and hem. You guys usually do a light wash / dry before getting anything hemmed / tapered? To get the shrink out? In the past I've had stuff hemmed then washed it 6 months later for it to end up to short..
