Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Levis are always great but has a small problem on 501 Jeans. The order was received and all was correct. One problem with the 501 jeans. I washed them in cold water and the right leg twisted. I personally do not believe this should happen. All else was easy and other than the twisted leg part, I would recommend the product and J C Penny would be the place to purchase men's clothing. October 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect fit Not only was my husband happy I purchased these jeans for christmas they fit great and they were delivered in 1 day!!! As usual the Levi brand stands up their reputation! January 6, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 501 Shrink to fit Levis I have never received Levis for men of such light weight denim. This is not what I expect for denim Levis! I am very disappointed. In years past I have purchased these same Levi product but never such a flimsy denim. I won't be buying any more Levis from Penneys! January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Ever Fit great as always, these are the best jeans I have ever owned and they last forever January 6, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by not what I expected I never received a mailing receipt in the package when it arrived,just the outside shipping receipt.. Very disappointed and yes I am returning the items. December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love 501 levis. This was my second time ordering on line through the store, it was fast and the employees was very nice and helpful. I will be ordering more 501 levis on line through the store. I love JCP.... Thanks for your fast service !!!! and nice employees.... Tammy Oneal December 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by the only brand my son will wear the shrink to fit feature is the reason I buy Levi's as my son is quite thin and these will "shrink to fit" him. Penny's is my store of choice for them because they always have his size and better pricing than other stores December 2, 2015

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?

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.
