Does anyone know where I can get information on the various levis styles? i.e. a description for 501, 607, etc so I know what each style is. Also I heard that 502s are the same as 501s except they have a zip fly instead of domes, is this correct? Thanks for your help.

550, 560 - Dad jeans
501,505 - regular fit
514 - slim fit
510, 511 - really slim, may cause damage to reproductive function

Does anyone know how much the 510s stretch over time?

Mine do in the waist, probably about 1-2 inches. Legs loosen up a bit if you're doing something active in them (cycling, for example), but not much, and if/when you wash them they seem to go back to pretty close to new.

I have STF, and honestly not that much. I'd say an inch max in the waist.

That said, they shrink vertically a good 2 inches.

I would agree. They certainly don't hinder reproductive capabilities.
