I Need Help Choosing Jeans

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
For a while now I have been buying Levi's 501 STF in the Knight color. They fit and look great (I like that raw look and stiff feel) until it is time to wash them. I have a boatload of jeans that have been washed once only to never be worn again because of the shrink factor.

The obvious answer would be to size up so when they are washed they will fit but I like the look & feel of them before they are washed. Does anyone know of an alternate Levis number I could try to achieve the effect I'm looking for without having to scrap the jeans after washing once?

Thanks

some people spot clean and put in the freezer instead of washing.

I find 501s incredibly baggy.

Do you dry them?  Is it possible to get jeans Dry Cleaned?  

 

I rarely wash my jeans and when I do, I hang them up to avoid the shrinking factor as much as possible.

I wash with cold water then hang to dry. The very nature of the jeans I mentioned in the OP was that they are made to shrink when washed for a custom fit. I want a paid I can wear that have that same raw appeal without worrying it will be lost on the first wash.
