penultimate 501xx sizing thread

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Is there a final verdict on how much bigger to buy 501xxs?

I've looked all over the web and am getting answers ranging from +1 waist +2 inseam to +3 waist +4 inseam.

I bought +1 in the waist.

If this is the penultimate thread, when will we see the ultimate thread?

I think he's trying to say he's kinda like the dude in "Memento": no STM so he'll be back in a few hours, register under a new name, and ask the question again.

I think you can be fairly confident that this will prove to be neither.

[Muttering under breath] Not that you couldn't have searched here...

Ahem. Anyway, buy a few sizes; find the one that you can barely button, and go up one from that. It may shrink a bit too much for your liking at first, but it'll stretch back out quite a bit.

Links aren't dead, you just have change "http://superfuture.com/city/supertalk/" to "http://supertalk.superfuture.com/" and then add the thread. SuFu usually is a better resource for definitive threads since a lot of stuff here got lost in the crash a while back.

Pardon my hyperbole.

Regardless, I searched on this site (and google) and found mixed answers so I figured I'd ask with the hope that you'd all respond with something resembling a consensus.

it's something like 1" on the waist, 3" on the length.. but bigger sizes 36+ are 2" on the waist, 4" on the length...

or something like that...

I did the unthinkable and searched google for "shrink to fit levis." Sure enough, the very first link was: http://www.swainsinc.com/storeframe....html~mainFrame Curiously enough, they offered Levi's STF recommendations which I'll post because c'mon, who really clicks links anymore? That's soooo 2005. "HOW TO BUY SHRINK-TO-FIT JEANS WAIST Add 1" to waist sizes 28"-36" Add 2" to waist sizes 38"-46" LENGTH Add 3" to lengths 29"-34" Add 4" to lengths 36"-Up Example - to fit size 34x30 order size 35x33 "

Ok well they do usually shrink about an 1" in the waist and maybe..hm, 1-1.5" in the inseam. I got a 30x32, (I am a 29x30). I don't know, I never wear my Levi's anymorer, kind of a waste to buy them.
