Doesn't seem much different from normal levis, except because of how dark the jeans are, the stitching may show more. But they definitely don't attract attention or anything. I'm thinking of soaking/hanging mine to see if i can get a bit of shrinkage. Not much, just back to when i bought them and the inseam a half an inch. Maybe get around to trying to iron out the shin creases, but then again, i'm really lazy because i said this 2 weeks ago.
You size 2 inchs up from your natural inseem (right above the ground in heel area barefoot) with straight jeans for a natural stacked look. Toss you're jeans in a net or a dryel bag with a fabric freshener and dry for 15-30 mins to shrink back to original size.

He bought his in Japan, thus he doesn't get smelly creases. Buying them should be self explanatory, unless you REALLY want to pay service to buy $40 jeans in Japan. I highly doubt the 514 will be dated for a longgggg time.
