their waist sizing must be off then. I'm a 32 in like everything but 511 and 501's are tight as fuk


even within the same brand, sizing is different.
if its too tight, size up. also, some 511 some spandex. after a few hours of wearing it, it'll stretch.
they are skinny fit, and low rise. you're supposed to sag so your thighs and crotch arent all suffocated.

My sizes are as followed
501 - 30
511 - 32
511 trousers - 31
510 - 32
my waist measurement where my pants go - 33 inches

yes that would reduce stacking
as would hemming them

I'm pretty new to this thread, but I've been doing a lot of searching on here to see where and how I can get a good looking fit. Today I'm going to buy some Levi STF's and wanted to know how I could get a good looking slim fit with some stacks. I normally wear 34/32 in 511's and they fit perfect with 1 soak and 1 wash. I also have 514's that are in 32/34 and it's a little "baggy or "airy" for my taste and not as slim. I don't want it too look too tight. I'm 5'11" 175lbs if that helps.

What size should I get for Levi's STF'S if I wanted a slim fit look with some stacks?

Youre not going to get a slim fit out of 501 stf unless you can size down like 4 sizes or have huge legs...you just said 514's are to baggy.

Just get some raw 511's off the levis site

Hey everyone

im new here and thinking about checking into some levis STF
have been wearing Levis 505 lately and really liking the fit.

My measurements
6 feet height
175lbs weight
31 waist size in 505's with bit of gap, maybe can squeeze into 30 waist size

Here are some pictures of myself wearing levis 505 in 31x32.



What do you think of my fit? I think 32 is a good length, but thinking to try 34 length to get more stacking. I dont have super skinny legs, so dont know if i will ever like wearing 511 skinny jeans. Probably stick to straight leg 505. I have a pair of Levis 501's in 32x32, and they fit tighter on the waist and legs, but the ass part bubbles out??? Does anyone have this problem? Its like theres ALOT of extra fabric in the ass, puffs out and looks really bad. Thats why i am not sure if i wanna buy another 501. Is it because 501's are suppose to be worn higher on the waist than the 505s?

Should i go for 30x34 levis 505 next time? would more stacking look better?

Also if i get 501 STF, what size should i get? 31x34? 31x36? for my 6feet height.

I went through the 192 pages of this levis thread in few hours, looking at all the pictures
I like this fading stacking stf jean pic the most...


Are these 501s or 511s? The back part isnt puffed out with too much fabric, which is good.
The fade and stacking on front looks really good too. What colorway are these jeans?

Thanks

Ok, this is a picture of my 32x32 501 in black. I dont understand why the size 32 waist on these 501s fit tighter than my 31 waist 505's? Do 501s fit tighter on the waist than 505s? Also can you see the buldge puffed out ass on these 501s.. there is too much fabric and just looks really weird. Did i get a bad pair of 501s? Am i suppose to wear 501s higher up?
If i buy shrink to fit 501s. should i get size 32 waist or 31 waist like my 505s?

Thanks

Let me ask you then... how would you compare the fit on 501's to 513's? I find 514 @sz34 are too baggy on the leg and 511 @sz34 are too tight.

513s are perfect. I have the same problem with 514s and 511s. 514 are slim on the thighs then straight throughout the leg which makes them sorta boot cut. 513s are jus slim throughout the whole leg

yeah the back tends to do that since the rise on the 501 is so high. i still wear mine on the hips and it doesnt look too bad. (STFs)

Those pics at the bottom are my jeans. They're indigo 501's. Measure your true waist size and get that size. Measurements on that specific pair of mine is tagged 32 x 38. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.
