Hot soaked and put in the dryer?! Why did you put them in the dryer? In my experience that makes the creasing/fading in 501s almost impossible.

Secondly they didn't mention 501xx anywhere and had a leather patch instead of the paper-y one I see in pics online... What gives?

these might have been lvc

The dryer made them shrink more. They were not stiff, but normal wear creases them just fine. You can see the way the combs are set that there's no problem there. All the normal spots are creased and fading from a month of intermittent wear. YMMV.

Thanks. Although I have never heard of this, I will check it out.

Today I've found on eBay some straight leg Levi's 521 with 20 cm leg opening. Or I could check slim fit Levi's 512 (they should have 20.5 cm leg opening for 36w). But does anyone have them and could he tell me what kind of outseam does they have? That flat one (501s have such) looks much better on turnups.

just picked up a pair of stf's at a levi's outlet. they didn't have the size i needed (31x36) so uh i had to bump it up to 32x38... mistake? probably but for $25 plus the cost of a hem, i'm not too worried. most guys who i work with in the lumberyard aren't too concerned with fit so i don't think i'll be judged too harshly

picked up a pair of Verde STF from Amazon. Tried the advice here of going with my natural waist.

On second day of wair, after my 20 min warm water bath, and I'm glad I went with my natural waist size. Helluva nice color on these IRL.

Anyone pick up the STF in black? I'm tempted since they got my size on Shelpers.

Okay, I just had my first go at this... I bought 34 x 34, trying to end up with 34 waist and 32 inseam. After soaking for a couple of hours, the overall fit was pretty good... waist is just tight enough that it seems like it will stretch back out correctly. The only problem is that the length didn't shrink nearly as much as I expected; it looks almost like they're still 34. I put them on wet and have been wearing them around, and it seems like there's still a good bit of dye coming out, I get smurf fingers just touching them. Should I:
1. Do another hot soak right away before wearing them again, hoping to shrink the inseam more and leave everything else the same?
2. Wear them for a week or two before soaking again?
3. Just assume they are what they are at this point and count on hemming them?

I'm open to suggestions that may not have occurred to me. Thanks for any input!

Cheers,
G

inseam should have shrank at least 2 inches. They will shrink more with another soak but the dye is so crappy and starch is so light it will be hard to get creases and fades what not.

Cuff 'em and wear 'em.

I've been wearing them in black since October. They've progressed infinitely better than the Nudies that were my first raw pair.

Don't expect much fading though. The black holds its color forever.
