by stoiccharon great value for raw denim
Wanted to try STF. Sized down one inch in the waist from my true measurement (wanted a slightly slim fit) and 2.5-3 inches up in the length. After soaking in hot water and letting them dry while wearing them, the results were pretty good. Waist/upper box/thighs were perfect. The length, however, did not shrink as much as expected so I needed to hem them two inches. Also, the 501 cut is a bit wider in the lower leg than I'd prefer but that's just personal preference. Overall I'd highly recommend if you like the 501 cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Picker I have worn 501 shrink to fit for 35 years.
These are the only jeans I will wear. I am familiar with the shrink rate so sizing isn't an issue. Jcp ships fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by COZWV WHY ALL THE GUESSWORK IN SIZING???
Bought 3 pair of these. Was so happy to find the original jeans from my youth that fit so great and fade like they should!
The first wash they shrunk up WAY too much in waist and length! I've been reading all the reviews and for the life of me I cannot understand why they don't label the sizes to be closer to what they will be AFTER washing? How can the pre-washed 501's fit just fine in 34-34 but these shrink-to-fit ones after washing might say 34-34 on the label but shrink up to 32-32. So the label then becomes completely WRONG!
Had to return them and bought two pairs of the pre-shrunk 501's because of course the JC Penney store did not have my size in the unwashed darker 501's.
I am going to order the 36-36 and give those a try to see if they shrink up to 34-34 but I sure don't see why it necessary after all these years of Levis making Jeans that we have to do all this guessing?

Rated 5 out of 5 by TailGunner8 Levi's 501 Shrink-To-Fit are the best!!!
I love these jeans. Have been wearing them for decades. They are appropriate wear anytime (at least at my age). I've indicated that the size runs small only because you must take into account that THEY WILL SHRINK when you wash them... but sizing instructions are generally included when shopping.

Not at all what I thought these would be. Very strange feeling material--definitely not blue jeany feel. Length seemed about a foot longer than expected so I didn't even bother to try these on let alone wash them for the shrinkage.
The hazards of buying on line...
I returned them.
