Newly Purchased, Levis 511

This is a rough experiment, so be gentle.

Although the tag didn't specify, would soaking these in a warm bath shrink them what-so-ever?

Also...Ignore my shoes, they're old/dirty and in bad taste, but...meh

no, they will not shrink any noticable amount. they will however stretch out quite a bit if you wear them a lot.

I've already noticed some considerable stretch...

At least I have something to wear if I'm ever painting a house?

Well, these are going back...

G'bless my neighbor, who happens to own a pair of New Standards in size 27. He's worn them day in and out for roughly 4 months, when I tried them on, they fit like a glove.

I'm in love, ...that being said, I just ordered a pair. F**k you Levis, hello APC

Where did you get these Levi's? Do you know the color code of these? I saw a pair of Levi's in Macy's that looks like dry, but I wasn't sure so didn't buy them. The salespeople there, as you'd expect, were of no help.

and saw some blue already...

the tag has a warning. i think they werre 50 bucks or so..

weird, if you are a 26 in diesel thanaz 27 new standards (stretched out for 4 months) should be loose and shit. but yeah apc is nice.
