    Great updates from everyone It continues to be too hot to wear jeans in NC. I’ve been wearing mine after work in the evening but there’s not a lot changing.

    Both of those models will be pretty low rise compared to your full counts. If I’m remembering correctly.

    I bet if you handwash cold and line dry there wont be much change. that fabric looks so cool. I can tell its definitely grubby though. You gotta wash that thing. haha.

    Lvc is for sale on their www.levi.com website. I think that Paul is suggesting you buy your waist size precisely because they will be 2” over sized. For when they shrink they should be 36.

    if you're looking for suspender buttons why not get the 20s? I think the 60s and 505 would look pretty weird with suspenders.

    A sized down 50s will be slim. Otherwise there is no high rise slim option from TCB. So if you measure 37 ; order a 36. The waistband will stretch out. Edit: I don’t know about the rises on the 505 or super slims

    Shoes make a big difference in how jeans fit as well.

    the 60s will fit tighter in the same size because they ride lower. that rise takes em down to hip level instead of just below the navel on the 50s.

    @garden gnomes in space I did ancestry about a year ago. Pretty interesting. I didn’t know you could get raw data tho. Here’s what I got I was expecting mostly British/Scottish not so much Scandinavian. My grandma, my dad and my brother did one too. Mine was most like my grandmothers.

    Thanks @volvo240thebest twas indeed a laptop. We’ll see how it goes. @Paul T I think the 20s are really helped by the larger cuff. I actually just finished hot soaking these. I was trying to replicate what I did with the first pair and I’m thinking I hot washed them in the machine and then dried. This time I cold washed and dried. The leg twist wasn’t quite as dramatic, which to me, is a good way to tell if the shrinking is done.
