How long does the stiffness last?
 

I just got a pair of Levis 501 shrink to fit and I love the stiffness, about how long could it last If I wore them everyday for example?

Depends on if you soak it or wash it before wear.

The stiff, raw feel will probably disappear after 1 week of continuous wear, and the denim becoming quite soft after some months. Quicker if washed or soaked.

seek medical attention immediately if it lasts longer than 4 hours

I would say about a week or sooner if you wear them hardcore. Post your progression pics :)...

Honestly, OP, you can't just softball 'em in like that...

I can't believe a pair of stiff jeans could feel so comfortable

Well then, you should try a pair of Samurai's 24 oz denim. The stiffness will never go away ;score

Not sure about Levis STF but my 12oz Nudies and 14oz 3sixteens weren't all that stiff when I started. The 16oz Flat heads kept the stiffness for a couple weeks and now are "stiff" compared to the others but are also pretty soft. Mind you, after the flat heads my idea of what was stiff changed. I remember thinking that the nudies were stiff when I first got them.

yeah until the summer comes and you sweat your balls off, if stiffness is a necessity either buy multiple pairs or starch.

I was implying that they will be very uncomfortable in the beginning. Obviously if it was Summer here in Australia I wouldn't be wearing a 24oz jean.
