OK all you Levi's pro's, I've got a dilemma I need help with. My lovely wife picked up a pair of Levi's LVC 1967 505-217 jeans for me at Buffalo Exchange that are marked my size but are about a size too big. They're marked 34 x 34 but measure 18.5" across the waist with a 32" inseam (maybe hemmed?). They feel like they're rigid and have been warn some but don't show signs of being washed or rinsed (the pockets aren't blue and they still feel "rigid" mostly) There's a lot of conflicting information on wether or not these will shrink. Does anybody have first hand experience with these jeans? Will they shrink? Or should I sell em? Here's some pics...

Levis 501's are the only shrink to fit jeans levis makes. So you can expect very little shrinkage with you 505's.
