is your measured waist a 31 or do you just buy 31s? i can't think of any levis (except for some of the LVCs) that are true-to-size.
if your measured waist is a 31 and you want true to size buy a 29.
511s fit about 2" large around the waist?

generally i just get 32x32/30s(since usually 31s are a true-to-size fit but are rare as shit to come by) and they usually fit alright. now i'm thinking maybe i'll go for a 30


as for the whole buying online thing, it's pretty much my only option until summer because of where i'm located. it's online or like wal-mart or some useless shit like that

The first three photos of the guy wearing the jacket are golden. You have a seemingly innocent jacket, then he shows you the hidden compartments, and gives you a look like "don't you dare tell anyone."

Wear them in and they could look that good!

I think Levi's sanforizes their raw denim that isn't the 501s, but check into it. If they're not sanforized, expect shrinkage of 1 size in the waist and 2 in the legs. It's not a bad idea to do a hot soak on them for about an hour so they shrink down a bit. Then, don't wash them at all at all unless you can't avoid it, keep things in the same pockets so the friction creates awesome fades, and enjoy your beautiful new jeans!

Never put your jeans in the dryer, and always wash inside out.

Wash your jeans less often and inside out. The decrease in friction on the denim will allow for the zipper to maintain strength longer. Or just buy jeans at places that are not old navy.

Man I wash my jeans whenever they get more stretched out a bit, i.e. whenever they stop framing my ass optimally, which is like every 2 or 3 weeks or so. When I was working in a barn I was wearing two pairs every week and washing on the weekend because they got so gross, but otherwise they don't need to be washed that much.

You can put jeans in the dryer! It is ok! Animal Ghosts is precisely right about washing them inside out, and you should leave them inside out when you put them in the dryer. The key is to not dry them completely. When you take them out, seams and hems and pockets and wherever else there are several layers of fabric should still be at least a little damp. Hang them up or lay them over a vent or a heater or something to finish drying. Feel free to wear them still damp, too, I guess, but the fibers are more likely to be permanently stretched if you do (as in, they won't shrink back up next time you wash them).

The problem with putting jeans in the dryer is that getting them completely dry usually means you have over-dried them. Denim is 100% cotton, or at least it usually is, and extreme heat makes cotton shrink up. The mistake people make is noticing that the waistband is still damp and throwing their jeans back in the dryer, even though the legs of the jeans are almost definitely all dry, which means that the only other physical change that the heat and the motion of the dryer can make on the denim is to start contracting the fibers of the dry parts.

I actually live in a section of the world that does not have an old navy. but  I don't see how the zipper breaking is affected by the denim?

Also, guys. Jeans take forever to dry out of the drier, and I simply do not have anywhere that I can let them hang dry. It's too cold outside like 80% of the year to do it outside and I do not have a very large house and my family would not appreciate running into my jeans hanging in the bathroom. Besides, then they don't shrink back up to optimal ass-itude, they stay stretched out which I don't like.

As long as you don't expect them to function, it hurts when you move and they cut in, however, standing still you look rad.

But I guess I could trudge after Animal Ghost's friend and Liz for a day and just buy the things they tell me look good, they both seem to know what is going on in the world of fashion.

Exactly, that's what I meant. As long as you just follow their advices and remember that your opinion doesn't count, it will be rad! You will be like their lump of clay, and they will sculpt you into whatever they want. God, I'm sorry I never went shopping with you, I've failed at being a good sister (then again, I don't know if I'm that good finding guys clothes).

The jeans and sweater are my favorites in that post. The other two are things I am sort of trying to like because I think they could look really good.

I will try some more. The jacket and last sweater I am not entirely sure of, but once again they are things that could look good if done well, or just on the right person.
