Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not liking the changes made I have been wearing 501 Shrink to Fit sense i was 5 years old i am now 58 years old. I just bought a couple of pair and i noticed they were much thinner and no more double stitching on the inseam and the hem on bottom legs were much shorter. The fit is also not the same as they have been in the past. I think it is because levi has decided to sacrifice quality over profit margins and corporate greed .It is too bad to see such an icon go down this path. If I can get the old quality i would gladly pay for it. PS is there still some old style 501 shrink to fit, if so i would like to buy them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy I have worn Levi 501 jeans for 40 years and the workmanship on the last 2 pair I purchased from the store online is atrocious. Plus the "shrink to fit" size I always buy 36x30 shrunk so much in length the first washing I cannot in good self conscience wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LEVI'S JEANS 501-1582 SHRINK-TO-FIT, Black Black, Black Fill Super quality. Rest assured. Choose carefully though. I needed W38xL31.5 Ordered (bought in store) W40xL34 (see pics). The best result achieved: leave in the 45-50 degrees Celcius luke-warm water (add a bit white vinegar. a bit black washing liquid - the color won't come out) for half-hour unfolded. Take them out, do not rinse them in the clean water. Hang them to dry for 20 min. Put them on yourself. Do not wrinkle them. Wait them to dry for half-hour still a little wet. Remove and hang them to dry completly on a hanger. Do not put them while wet in the dryer. Do not wash them ever in the washing mashine (if you want them to look perfect). After you get them shrinked like you wanted do not wash them like a year (unless really necessary. Use spot hand cleaning wlith little cold water)they will change on your body. When washing leave in the hot water for 1 hour with soap,hang them to dry. See pics: Before wash actual measurements were W42xL34.5. After 1-st wash W40xL32.5. After 2-nd wash W40xL32. After 3-rd wash W39xL33. After 4-th wash W38L32. (Made me kind of happy). I've made these 4 (four) washes before I started to use them for best results first acheved. Hang to dry unfolded after every time you wear them preferably outside in the cold conditions. You'll be very happy after you get used to them (not right away after first wash). Thanx. Merci.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nowhere near the quality of past 501 STF I have been wearing 501 STF's for about 30 years. The latest generation is much thinner, and the sizing is way off. The old method of adding up a size in Waist and 2 sizes in length, I'm not getting the shrinking that I expected. I haven't changed size since I was 17, so it sure isn't that. If you are looking to get into some selvedge denim, keep looking. These are just navy blue work pants for me, hoping to hold on to my old Levi's 501's.
