Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Bye, Original Jeans There was only one Shrink to Fit jean product for many years and I have been a customer since 1966. In the past 30 years this term has been applied to a wide variety of newer products that are not of the same quality. I've had problems with the fly in other than the "original" in that the buttons are not well spaced. The material in those jeans has changed as well. I can no longer distinguish what constitutes the "original" and will be shopping for a product that is like the old jeans.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the Same Most of the two and three star reviews are correct! I have been wearing STF 501's for about 35 years. I first noticed the slight decline in quality a few years back. I by two pair every summer. The last two sets represent a significant decline in quality. The fabric just isn't the same. They feel too much like slacks. I don't like to change the way I dress, but I think I will start looking around for other jeans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from why change? Remember when coke tryed new recipe? How did that work out? Same thing here. Wanting people to change is ridiculous . Change for company reasons. These are not dockers. If it works why change. Still some good in these new style 501's. But they are just not the same. Been wearing 501,s for over 50 years. Now have started to wear some wranglers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality for Levis Been wearing these jeans since the 70's and these aren't it. Thinner material, single stitching rather than double, one button broke third time I wore them. I'd try returning them but just don't want another pair. Very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from shrinkage I ordered shrink to fit 501's online in error. Those three pairs are floods by almost two inches in just a couple washes. Be warned, these shrink almost double compared the original 501's. Of the seven 501 pairs purchased, looks like these three 501 "shinkers" are going to be shorts.... 501 originals are great. Loyal user for almost 3 decades. Those are the same and have nominal shrinkage. These 501 STF have to be made of another material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Polyester??????? Stretch???? "Original" NOT These are NOT "original" in any way. The originals were 100 percent cotton and SHRUNK that way. These have polyester and stretchy stuff in them. FAKE "originals" that won't shrink or fit the way the ones I've been wearing for darned near 50 years USED to do. Just ... wow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from way to baggy even after wash in warm water I bought this pair of jeans just to give a try to levi's raw denim....I won't make this mistake again, you can tell immediately that is a low quality jean when looking at details such as the stitches and buttons. Additionally, this jeans feel to baggy even after ordering true size. I usually have trouble fitting my quads on most jeans, but these are the total opposite. It feels way to loose. Thumbs down to these jeans, unless you like baggy jeans and don't mind the lower quality and attention to detail.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh so sad. But oh so true Awful compared to how 501 STF used to be. Very thin or light weight denim, gone is double stitching and hems curl. I guess they will reissue the original 501s and charge twice the price of these imposters. Switching to carrhart

Yes, the correct size to buy is 48x30. Levis 501- Shrink -To Fit Jeans will do as it states, "SHRINK". Shrinkage , in my experience, is around 5/8" to 3/4". Levis 501's will fit you nicely.

I buy Levi's 501 Shrink to Fit, (not Big and Tall, I'm short), but I believe the shrinkage would be the same. They generally shrink about an inch in the waist and about 3 inches in length. The total shrinkage typically doesn't happen in one washing. So buy ONE paid and wash and dry them several times to check for fit. Penney's will take them back even if they have been washed. Then buy MORE.
