I found this forum a couple weeks ago and finally decided to join. I just wanted to say thanks to all for your advice. It really helps out, especially for someone like me with no style at all.
I'm 6'2 170lbs and I bought a couple pair of Levi's 514's. They're pretty dope! For as long as I've been buying my own clothes, I've bought them oversized and baggy and it looked pretty ridiculous on skinny ole' me. Too bad it took so long to realize it
(I'm 23 now).
I was kind of afraid to buy the 514's because they were "slim" but they fit really well. I'm thinking about buying a pair of raw 514's as well. I normally wear a 33/34 so should I size down to a 32? 32 waist pants really hug tight on my waist and its a little uncomfortable but I've been reading that they stretch. This will be my first pair of raw jeans so I want to get it right.
Also, the two pairs of 514's I have now are tumbled rigid and tumbled black. Should I have washed them first to get the extra dye out or will it make them too light?
