Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apology owed to Levi's I wrote earlier on here that I was disappointed in the quality. True, the quality of shrink-to-fits is not what it was 45 years ago, but they are still very good. Also, three buttons on the fly -- I complained, but then checked a pair of Levi's I bought 20 years ago 29 waist 36 length, and they had three buttons; it goes up to 4 buttons when the waist size goes up to 30. One thing -- what is this hornswaggle about wearing them in the bathtub?? I guess some folks just like to make life complicated for fun. I'm a gal, born and raised in California. I've been wearing shrink-to-fits as my main pants for 46 years and have often been asked by women who want to know how I get them to "look" that way. Huh??? I just wash them in the hottest washing machine I can get, dry them, and then ... wear 'em. I even had a lady say she'd pay $250 for a pair of "stone-washed jeans" like an ancient pair of my ol' shrink-to-fits. One request -- Levi's, please restore the size of 29-36 in the shrink-to-fits for us longer-legged types. The longest, 29-34s, are way too short to wear with western boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay I love the shrink to fit denim. This is how jeans used to be. Sanfordized denim is probably easier for some people, but I prefer a more authentic experience and the superior fit you get when your unique shape stretches the denim to your own custom fit. Remember you want the length to be 3-4 inches longer and the waist to be 1-2 inches larger than you would wear for tailored slacks. My pair is a bit defective. On the right leg the lateral seam keeps twisting around to the front so that by the time it reaches the cuff it is where a crease would be on slacks. Fortunately this is just a really cheap pair so I can overlook this poor quality defect, but this will definitely be the last "imported" pair that I own. Next time I will get a Made in the USA pair probably in Selvedge denim. I'll use this cheap pair to experiment with starching, wearing into the ocean, etc. before I get a real pair. For now it feels great to have a pair of button fly 501s for the first time in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product fits well and is long lasting I have worn this same product since grade school. I have worn this size since high school. am now 81 yrs old and still love the fit. have been a general contractor for over 40 years and have worn this same type of genes all the time. s there anything else I have worn this same brand since grade school. I have been wearing the same size since high school. I am now 81 and am still wearing the same size and style. They are rugged to work in and they wash and fit perfectly after every wash! The shrink to fit weem to be harder to purchase the older I get.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent product, seems like the quality has decreased significantly Just bought a pair. They are ok, but the fabric seems much much thinner than it used to be. The quality of these jeans is substantially lower than it has been in the recent past.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can not get the length I need They Shrink-To-Fit are not available in my size, which is 28-36. I purchased 28-34 and and will have to add length the old fashioned way: Embroidered edging. It is bad business when I cannot get the proper length and waist at the same time. Boo to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shrink to fit 501's I have been wearing those same jeans since the 50's. My biggest complaint is that they are not made in the U.S. Please consider bringing them back. Also the denim material is not as heavy as it once was.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Longer A Fan Let me join the chorus of long-time STF 501 wearers that are disappointed by the cheapening of a once-terrific product. As others have noted, the denim fabric is now much thinner, and the durable, double stitching on inner pant leg seams is no more. Bummer. We had a good 50-year run together, but I guess I need to find my new go to. Would've been willing to pay a bit more to maintain the quality, but I guess that train's left the station. Hello, Carhartt?

I want to buy a pair of big and tall, shrink to fit 501 Jeans. My real waist size is 47 and inseam is 29. Would size 48/30 shrink down to the proper size? More? Less?
Asked by: John
Think you'll be fine. They do typically shrink (and stay) about an inch on both length and waist. With years of experience with 501s, exactly what I would do. Enjoy!
