I need the straight skinny on how the "new fit" 501s fit. I am getting two conflicting accounts: 1. You buy them true to size, since a cold rinse will lead to negligible shrinkage. 2. They shrink 1" in the waist, and 3" in the inseam. I am planning on doing a cold rinse immediately to get some initial shrinking, then plan on just wearin' 'em with only occasional say once or twice a year washes. I doubt I can be bothered to starch. Non-STF, you buy true to size. STF, you buy right around the numbers you give in #2. The shrinking properties of cotton haven't changed just because Levi's changed the 501 cut.
