    It's my understanding that a pair of LVC 1954 501xx shrink a whole two sizes in the waist once washed, meaning that someone who is a 32 should buy a size 34. Is that still the case? Now, for the Lee "Archives" 1952 101z Riders, does anyone have experience with these and the sizing/shrinkage? How does the sizing compare to LVC? Does the same method of sizing up two inches apply for Lee denim on this model as it does for the LVC 1954 501xx? Or do they run true to size? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
