The Joy of Levi’s 501 Shrink-To-Fit

We are flesh and blood, purely organic creatures. The joy of shrink-to-fit Levi’s Jeans hearkens to the beauty of this.

They are not expensive, but when done right, priceless. Made of non-sanforized cotton, if you are careful they will fit you like nothing else in our age of petroleum produced clothing.

My method: buy yourself a pair about 2 inches longer than usual and 1 inch in the waste bigger than usual. Boil in water, let them sit for an hour, drip dry for 30 minutes, and then wear them till they are dry. It’ll take a few hours or more. Do this twice. Enjoy.

That 100% cotton is now part of you. Grab a sweet tea, sit in the evening summer breeze and stair across a green field knowing that you have about all you need to appreciate the things that matter. And maybe listen to a podcast of two!
