He was very happy with the colour and fit and they look good dressed up or down, very good value.
They fit true to size and had no loose threads or defects upon inspection.
Still needing some jeans, I went to the local "work wear store" and checked out their Levi's 501's.

    I ordered and returned two sets of pants for the same reason. These are defective items with cheaply repaired cuts around the knee area. The cuts I saw on both pairs are about 4-5 inches long...and the fix looks like surgical stitches. You can see them a mile away.
    On the positive side, the return and refund process was very smooth. Pay $10 more and get them brand new at the store...

    They fit true to size and had no loose threads or defects upon inspection.

    I think the material is thinner than I remember for 501 jeans, but in am very happy with my choice and they were worth the wait. What wait? It tooks a few weeks for them to show up, but I ordered a color that I couldn't find anywhere in the "metal" so I wouldn't expect to see the same delays on more traditional colors. They are worth the wait though!! I wear them with motorcyle boots and they fit easy over them despite not being a boot cut jean.

    They did not shrink, at least not noticeably, in the washer and dryer cycle either which is always a concern with jeans. I am also able to use a wide leather belt in them without any issues threading through the belt loops.

    The fly buttons were much easier to use than I recall, so that was a bonus.

    I love the fit and look and would definitely buy again.

    Way too small. Have owned a dozen pair of these and they fit perfectly. These are too small, a weird cut, definitely irregular. Very disappointing.

    I REALLY wanted these pants to be okay. Unfortunately, though, within about 30 seconds of putting them on and buttoning them, the top button popped off. It was not that they were too small for me. They were not too tight. The problem is that the buttons (at least the top one) was defective. It clearly was not connected well to the material itself. I thought about trying to re-secure it (super sewing or super glue??). I quickly decided that would be a mistake and am in the process of returning them.. I can't say whether it is some sort of design flaw with this type of pants. All I know is the pair I got is defective.

    Ordered two pair of Levi's 501's. As usual, they arrived quickly from Amazon....thank you!. After receiving them I was very disappointed. The reason for the disappointment...The material the jeans were made out of was incredibly thin, and light weight. Not what I'm used to from Levi's! They felt like they'd last about 2 weeks before ripping. So, I returned them...with no hassle BTW. Still needing some jeans, I went to the local "work wear store" and checked out their Levi's 501's. They sold the regular weight material Levi's....the ones I'm used to! What's up with your Levi's Amazon?

    Fit great, and it's nice when you're a taller inseam like me (36") when your jeans have length to spare (but not too much). The unique coloring is cool as well, probably my favorite of the several pairs I have ordered via Amazon. If more colors become available in my size, no doubt I'll be back!

    not sure these are legit brand name jeans. Haven't even gotten a full season out of these and really don't wear them that often. They've already worn through the crotch and back pockets are ripping. No, they're not too snug. They're actually a little large on me. I wouldn't buy from them again.
