    Hey everyone. Just saying hello and glad that I found this forum. I've recent ventured into the Selvedge / Raw / Raw Selvedge by purchasing 4, yes 4 pairs of Levi's 511 slims (non stretch completely white oak) I love them, but I would like to venture out to nudies. I know that the cost will be more, but it will definitely be worth it at the end.

    So my question is what will be the best fit that comes close to the Levi's 511 Slims no stretch or shrink to fit? When I brought my denim. I went with my regular waist size, but got the length in a 34 instead of my regular 32 just to be able to cuff, roll or pin roll so I can show off the Selvedge.

    Also sorry if this question was asked in a previous forum. I just felt that it was right to add to my introduction.

    Thank you.

    Are 511s available as a STF? I thought it was only the 501 that was available raw!

    STF = Shrink to Fit = Levi's' way of saying unsanforized and raw

    I read your above comment to mean you wanted jeans that were similar to 511, but only similar to STF or other non-stretch versions of the 511; I thought this meant you may have come across a 511 in STF denim.

    Obviously you meant something else.
