Levi's STF! :D


hey guyys so i bought my first pair of levi's stf today! so i have some questions

how should i soak them? I dont think going in a shower with jeans on would be ideal for me, what other options are there?

also a question about inseam; this is the length of the jeans right? i'm about 6 feet tall, is 32 pre-soak too small for me? :O

and finally, are these the 501xx? and do they have that cool fade?

oh and one more thing, when i tried these on, they were baggy as balls! when i soak them will they be a lot less baggy? :O

thanks guys! this is pretty much the closest to raw denim as i'm gonna get for now so i am very happy(:

They should shrink 2-3'' in length.... I'm a noob when it comes to raw denim but I'm pretty 32 isn't going to be long enough.

Well Im 6'2 and pre soak I always have to go with a 34 or 36 im thinking that you may want to go up a lil. I have long legs and a short torso though so it depends on how your built also, but expect drastic shrinking after you soak.

That's the 501XXX you got there, not the XX denim on LVCs and special editions.

It's still shrink to fit though.
As for the fades, it really depends on you!

siiiiick thanks guys!

so i finally got around to soaking them yesterday, sat in a tub of warm water for like 30-40 minutes, but i didnt get much shrinkage off of them :O

so earlier today, i tried soaking them again, but this time not wearing them, and made the water as hot as i can get it.

ill post pics soon!
