1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Yes, already have, & I think it's kinda cool. I'm getting a lot of dye on the book in the back pocket, too.

    How much would you recommend sizing down on the pre-washed levis? i've heard that can stretch quite a bit

    Where did you found a pair of the khaki stfs? I've been looking for a pair for quite some time now.

    Amazon had a bunch on sale for $24.99 about a week ago. Don't know what sizes are left.

    Sized down 1(29) on my order since the TTS(30) I got were somewhat loose pre-soak. I'm assuming the khaki's will shrink the same amount, but was wondering if anyone knows about the lose of dye is as extreme as the indigo's in warm water.

    The Macy's near me has khaki STFs, as well as brown, greencast, indigo, light blue, and purple. They were all on sale for $34.99 a week ago. Hope that helps.

    I'm doing something similar. Got a 1-inch size up in the waist to see how a different fit turns out.

    Thats how mine fit more or less. I sized down 1, Im gonna size down 2 if I can find a 28 pair. My Macys only carries 30s, Ive seen 28s on Levis.com once I think. TTS these fit me really baggy/boxy.

    These stretch as much as APC do so sizing down isn't a problem as long as your thighs are not big.
