Do Levi's run different numbers in different countries? Went on a mission looking for some black 501s or 511's, could only find some 504's here in Aus.




Anyone know what US 50's they fit like or if they'll shrink/stretch (waist)?

bosc0 where are you looking?

Most Australian sneaker stores should stock denim and a lot of them do stock LVC, especially 501's.

Turn them inside out and you could either soak them(i know there not stf) or wash them, and they should shrink.

air dry, or in the dryer if you want them to shrink even more.

You're looking in the wrong place. What part of Aus do you live in?

Small question...

I've been wearing some Indigo STF's for maybe 3 months now. If I wash them I'm wondering what they're gonna look like.. Will there be any good fades or what?

They've never been washed or soaked by the way...

if i'm not mistaken, 504's are just a variation of the 501's. i have a pair of 503's and they are the same legs/fit as 501s except slight low-rise. 504's are probably very close to 501's

Aus is getting more LVC soon, atleast I know Perth is but Sydney should definitely have LVC.

Go check out Provider in Melbourne, I hear they are pretty dope.

Or;
http://www.sneakerfreaker.com/shopguide/?country=AUSTRALIA&city=MELBOURNE&search.x=44&search.y=15

Browse through that.

It also helps to ask around at stores for certain products, some places may be iffy to help you out (if they are cunts or not) but if you know your shit they should point you in right direction.
