The 501® Original Shrink-to-Fit™ Jeans are made from authentic raw denim that forms to your body. The fit, wear and finish are all unique to you. The 501® Original is an iconic straight fit with signature button fly. Looks especially great with a Levi’s® Trucker Jacket and a simple crewneck tee for a classic all-American look. To find the right size for Shrink-to-Fit™ Jeans, there are three options. 1) For the old-school technique, buy true to size in the waist and two sizes up in length. Wear them in the tub and keep them on to dry. 2) For those who want to machine wash and dry the jeans, we recommend ordering up. For your waist, increase 1" for sizes 27"-36", 2" for 38"-48", and 3" for 50" and up. And for your inseam, increase 3" for sizes 27"-34" and 4" for 36" and up. 3) For purists who like their denim unwashed, no need to size up. Buy them true to size.
