wonder if that pair that Peter posted up is the same ones i saw at the store.

They were a really light blue almost baby blue and felt raw like like the STF. To me I would think they are since they don't seem to have been washed or rinsed like normal jeans. They had a nice weight to it unlike the Rigid Dragons that I got and never wore. Liked that they came in a a 28x32 also. thinkin of getting them even tho I don't really need em.

anyways, I don't really like how the 501's look on me. They seem too baggy and not tapered well? I've never tried wearing skinny jeans. It just doesn't seem like my style and seems uncomfortable but after reading the last few pages, maybe I will try it. I don't want "skinny" jeans, more so I want "fitted" jeans. I don't mind sagging a little either. So ya, any suggestions on what I should try?

And any thoughts on the sizing considering my size? I will definitely go try them on but I want to get an idea.


If 36 waist fits you, then thats your waist. No need to compare it to what others wear.
501s are straight fit, so of course they won't be tapered.
Fitted jeans can be achieved in many ways.
Either by sizing down (which you dont want to do) or by changing models.

If you want something tapered, check out 521 (slim tapered) or 520 (tapered).
They can be found Levis.com or in most department store (Kohls, Belk, Macy, JC Penny... etc).
They have a tapered effect from the thigh to the ankles.
Slouchy, lower rise for that semi-saggy look.
Roomier in the thigh area, but as it goes down, it slims down.

While youre at the store, look for 513 (slim) or 511 skinny.
If these are too skinny for your liking, try sizing up 1, and it may fit better for you.

Found Levi Matchstick Selvedge Denim in Sterling for $50 at my local Nordstrom rack the other day.
Came in a bluish/greyish color, Rigid tag on them. Selvedge.
Awesome for anyone wanting a pair of grey denim.
Fits similar to 511s, but a little looser.

Indeed, they are trying really hard to copy the LEVI's vintage 1947 back pocket off-stitching

You can pick up Samurai in USA (at like BIG), but if you want a pair with that pocket stitching, you'll have to order one directly from Japan.

Newbie here.. so I recently decided it was time for a change.. I'm getting rid of all of my 514s in 30x30.. I got a pair of 511s in 31x30 and they fit pretty well (after a wash to shrink), but I was hoping for a little more room around the calves since I have an athletic build.. should I bump up the waist, inseam, or both? 32x30, 31x32, or 32x32?

Edit: And I don't care much for stacks or cuffs.

Since it's a straight fit, inseam wouldn't make a difference.
Before you purchase anything new, wear the jeans 2-3 times. With my experience, they'll stretch a little, even at the calves.

If still no good, try a +1 waist.
If not, check out Levis 513 (Between 511 and 514).

Hey guys,
I just bought two pairs of the Nike x Levi 511 skateboarding jeans and i just want to know if I should wash them before I wear them. Should I just wear em out first? Thanks

Here are the jeans I was talking about earlier. Went to go try them on today and might pick them up. They're a really light blue, kinda like a baby blue or maybe a little grayish. They have a nice weight to them and are pretty stiff...stiffer than APC's.

$59 RAW Made-in-USA Levi's 501s, 511s, and 505s at HauteLook today. (Sale lasts til Thursday apparently, but they tend to sell out quickly.) I can't imagine these will last long so grab a pair or three while you can.

If you're feeling generous, I'd appreciate it if you could use my referrer link below.

$200? Levis good and all, but personally, I would get either APC, N&F, Baldwin, 3sixteen, Rogue Territory... etc. There's many brands within that price point.

Is 511 > APC? Hard question, cause I've never owned APC, nor selvedge Levis.
If you love the 511 fit, then I recommend getting the Levis. Quality will be good, it's Levis after all, and you'll know exactly how it'll fit.
