    if you go for the 1966 don't size down get your own size. they will lose an inch in the waist but slowly will stretch back to almost the same waist size as they were when new/raw. sizing down one you run the risk of not enough stretch in the waist. length will not return i lost just over an inch in the legs and they are not coming back good job i got 32 leg.

    Yep my store sells levi's the regular stuff 501 and 511 i have also noticed the big E on the new batch of jeans. It doesn't bother me to be honest but it's a stupid move from levi's.

    I didn’t size down they fit me comfortably when I tried them on with the slightest room in the waist. The fit as regular tapered jeans. They look slightly slimmer in some of the pics but some pics are very accurate to what they look in person. So def don’t fit slim around the thigh as I have some slim tapered fits which can be a pain in the ass if you ask me

    That is true will take some more pics once I break them in a bit more the pics are slightly angled. Not that I asked for the pics to be taken that way. They fit relaxed tapered with a nice amount of room around the thighs and tapers down a little. I could have got a little more shrink but a stuck a hanger between the waist when hung dry causing less shrinking. I was scared I would lose too much in the waist.still happy with the fit .

    Finally got round to doing some fit pics of my LVC 501- 1966 lighting wasn’t perfect. May do some more fit pics after a few months wear. i wanted a pair of relaxed fitting jeans these have come out almost perfect after shrinking and I feel there is still a little shrink left in the when soak them the second time. Only area I could have done better is the back but then again I’m back in the gym now time for them leg presses. And deadlifts.

    Rivets of the 501 -1966 model strangely I found whilst trying the 1947 and 1966 in the changing room that even the rivet styles are different depending on the models. 1966 has a rounder top and 47 looks like it’s been hammered down lot more flat .That’s how much of a geek I am paying attention to such small details

    yeah fit in hip area very well i have lost a bit of size on my legs since iv stopped going gym, but i can see the fit becoming even better once im back at the gym. in the end the hanger may have been unnecessary since i don't know if that had an effect on stopping the leg width from shrinking. on my second soak after 4 months if they become dirty i will not use the hanger and see if i can get a little more shrink. but still very happy the denim waist is perfect. You were right about saying if the waist fit raw it will go back to that with wear it practically almost went back to it in 10-20 mins of wear. so wearing a full day the waist will go back to raw measurement Thanks once again you saved me a lot of stress whilst they were hanging dry. Knowing i spent £180 lol

    update Yes great news tried the 501 1966 on after soak and turns out the waist shrank so little it came back within 20 mins of wear the hanger i used between the waist whilst hung dry seems to have done the trick. they fit perfectly very relaxed fit but still fit nicely. i anticipated the legs width to shrink a bit more but still happy that i know there is zero chance of this pair becoming small. and the denim feels smooth on the skin. My first LVC 501 and it's a success, Happy days now only need a good sunny day to do some fit pics.

    i certainly didn't downsize so i should be fine. If it worked for you after down sizing it;s safe to say i am all good. i have also got Edwin ed75 and those are waist 30 and have stretch by atleast an inch to the point i'm almost in need of a belt now, not that i don't have belts but i like denim without belts. Just hoping for the perfect amount of stretch to get back to similar waist to when they were raw so they don't start sagging. i hate sagging jeans that require you to keep pulling up the denim. which is the case now with my Edwins ed75.
