Make sure to size up a good bit in the inseam as well. My ideal inseam is probably right at 31 inches (which are pretty uncommon off the rack), but I got the 34 and they shrunk to a very manageable length.
The olive color is pretty interesting, with black threads contrasting with the green to make the color a bit darker than I had expected. The denim is also pretty lightweight in these. The black pair I have is heavier and nappier.
In Levi's I normally buy the 514, but wanted to check out the STF and I wasn't disappointed! My one comment is that these have a very high rise, especially compared to my normal 514 which are low-rise. I bought them knowing they would fit differently, and I have other jeans that claim to sit 'at the waist', but these are definitely the highest rise in my collection. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase (especially at the $25 price point, unbeatable!) and will probably be buying more 501 STFs soon.
I air-dry all my jeans most of the time, and these too; but, when I first received the jeans I put them in the dryer to break them in, and the results were deep colour altering wrinkles that I could not get out. Now the colours have worn in evenly, but it was the strangest thing.
So, after washing the jeans I carefully lay them out on a rack to dry, and stretch them to prevent any wrinkles from starting.
