  • Anyone else have this problem, seems like whenever I buy a new pair of Levi's and break them in after a few wears they stretch in every direction? They get longer, the legs get wider, the waist stretches out a few inches and the ankle cuff area gets way out of shape. It's basically like they go up a whole size. My waist was 35 inches when I bought it (I measured to see) and now it's 38. how do yall take care of yours and stop mine from getting out of shape. I hand wash any stains and never use the dryer for them

    I also go through 3 pants every 6-8 months because they just get too wrinkled even after using an iron.

    I'm starting to think Levi's is trash or if this is a common problem on all jean brands that I just never noticed. What brands yall recommend switching to? I prefer 98% cotton or above which Levi's is also getting rid of more and more over time

  • Mine did have a "stretch" on the tag but I didn't think it'd be this crazy they were tight at the store now I'm using a belt

    I looked that up and have trouble understanding what exactly the difference is. Flat seams? Is that it? I might purchase a pair but they're all very expensive so I don't know if it's worth it. Lots of people on YouTube praise them

    If you own any owm do they compare to the 511? Talking about the feeling and softness

    Levi鈥檚 just trash buddy,as far as I can remember from the last time I bought a pair(which might be around 2015),build quality for all Levi鈥檚 were decent but the fits across the board was trash a good number of the time.

  • They鈥檙e just regular jeans. You鈥檇 have to spend more to get the quality & fit u want. Try allsaints or naked & famous, they鈥檙e pretty good 馃憤馃徑

    That鈥檚 bro science. You gotta wash your jeans with soap if you want them clean

    Yeah, I usually let them soak in the tub with some soap. It鈥檚 just easier to throw them in the wash
