Life gets hot and sweaty in Arizona. Wearing red hot red jeans makes you feel like the boxer that moves towards the punch. I saw these jeans in a window on the Champs Elysees Levi's Store in 2013 and never forgot them. I wanted to wear these jeans to some manner of glory. Now I realize these red 501 Jeans are the standard of the worker which is who and what I am. 501 are the American standard which we can all participate in. -these jeans fit true to size if you size at least one size larger than usual in the waist and two sizes longer in the inseam (your mileage may vary). Always experiment with Shrink-to-Fit jeans if you have never worn them before.
I recommend this product!

when they say shrink to fit yeah sure you expect them to shrink a little bit… i got these and they did fit amazingly before the wash but take them out and they are now very tight and incredibly short. My 15 year old sister can use them as capri pants. it does not say it here but they recommend buying two sizes bigger. wish i would have known that.
No, I do not recommend this product.

phillycoll I am sorry that you had a horrible experience. I sell denim for a living to urban wear customers. I always emphasize to my customers that these shrink 2 inches in the waist and 3 in the inseam. I am sorry that someone did not advise you well. I can promise if you will by up you will love these jeans. Many of my customers dry clean them. The label also recommends hand washing in cold water and drip drying. The next pair you purchase try that. Better luck next time.

Dude, STF's have been around forever. They state on the labels how much they shrink (typically 1-2 in in waist and 3 in inseam).So you ALWAYS buy larger by one size. Wash in warm water, dry on cotton (heat) and they will have a great fit. I have gone up and down 25 lbs over 30 years. and bought larger and smaller STF's. Still have some from the early days (true fade and wear no stonewash bleach junk) and they fit again now that I lost the weight.
Levi's 501 shrink to fit button fly jeans are the tops. I particularly like this Auburn color. The black fill gives the jeans a super appearance. In addition to this great color the jeans give the great fit, look, style, comfort, and strong appeal for which 501 shrink to fit Levi's are famous. I purchased several pairs because they are a very favorite Levi's of mine. They are great fun to wear.
