Hello,
I was wondering if these jeans can shrink to a skinnier look? My ideal jeans are the Levis 520 low tapered aka slouch skinny, but since they're not available anymore, I was thinking of getting some STF's maybe a bit smaller than recommended. Is this a good idea?

thx

I'm not familiar with the 520. i'm guessing it has a low rise by the name "slouch". Conversely, 501s have a fairly high rise. Try on a pair before you buy them. I have a 29 inch waist and sized down to 28 (stf).They are very slim, but not tight. If you get STF, make sure you add 3" to your typical inseam.

That largely depends on the "horror" flick you've bought a ticket to.
