Levi's quality in jeans is hit or miss, in my opinion, but these cords have stayed the same for the last few years. Fit is low on the waist like 501 Levi jeans, straight through leg and little material around the ankles. Looks good with boots, not so great with tennis shoes. Sandals/chaco also looks nice. Blue color same as before, same with the dark grey. Same as previous years. Fit appears same as before as well.

Also purchased the 511 Levi's cords. The 514 less tapered through the thigh-knee-ankle compared to the 511. If looking for much more tapered slim look, go for the 511. My thighs are a little too big for the 511 from squats but I have small calves so I got a pair of 511 a little bigger, 33 waist instead of normal 32 and fit was good.

Still appear to be expected Levis quality, although almost thin enough to think about investing in an iron to keep wrinkle free. I've always preferred the 517 bootcut styling but haven't seen cords in that style for more than a decade. For me anyway, they fit as I'd expect and not too low on the hips.

Listing note: The "burnt olive" looks like the historic standard brown on my monitors and not the very green color the pants actually are.

This is my first pair of corduroy pants, just in time for winter. The pants do a remarkable job of maintaining warmth, even in single digit weather. They also hold up to wind better than denim jeans. Surprisingly, the pants are also breathable. I wore them for a few hotter weeks of fall and was impressed with the air flow. The pants have a fair amount of crotch space, and run slimmer down the thigh.

My only grievance is that they ran a tad long. This works great for wearing them with boots (and the pants are more for warm weather), but I have to cuff them when I'm not wearing shoes. And even with a properly sized belt, the pants bunch somewhat due to their length.

I love Corduroy but I love relaxed fit Corduroy.
These are not so much relaxed fit.
I mean the waist size was spot on but the boot leg are straight down and I don't like that. I like them loose on the boot leg area.
That's just me.
But they're good other than that.

There seems to be an issue with how Levi stores or transports these, because many have permanent imprinting/scratches in the corduroy pattern from retail hangars (those with the two clips) anywhere along the whole pant, like they were tossed upon each other with the clips still on in huge piles until the weight was so heavy it permanently damaged the fabric. I had to return two to Levi directly because they were so bad before trying Amazon and finally got one that was only slightly damaged, not too noticeable unless you were looking for it.

They fit alright, maybe more for the kind of guy who wears his jeans lower on the hips than most jeans even usually are because if you don't then the top of the inseam will awkwardly come right up between your balls. The 513s manage to fit more snugly without doing this, so it seems clear that these 514s are made to sag a bit and to be a little more loose and casual. If you know that and are fine with it, they will serve their purpose well. I don't really think of corduroy as a slim/clean-cut look type material, so I don't mind. Also, the touch of stretch is nice to finally have in a guys jean; We move too!

Bought these for my 6'4" husband who weighs 190 and has a 36" inseam. They were actually a little long on him, but fit ok otherwise (although he said they were too baggy). His biggest complaint, and the reason for three stars, is that the belt loops were too big and placed in less effective places (no middle loop on the back) and made the pant sag. He wears these for work (research professor, so he needed dressy to teach but rugged for the lab) and the looped sagging on the waist and the bunching at the ankle just don't look professional. It is so hard to find corduroy pants for someone so tall, but we will go back to hunting for another brand.

These fit as expected. I have two pairs of 527 jeans in 34x32 and the waist seems to be identical. I'm 6'2" 185lbs athletic build and there is enough room in the thigh for me. Very comfortable and great for colder weather.

I prefer bootcut and was disappointed they are not available in that style (that I could find). Only complaint is similar to what I've seen on other reviews in that these pants can arrive with visible dents or scratches. Good overall, just not made to the highest quality, but that is to be expected given the price.

Levi cords are and have been for decades my favorite casual pants. Unfortunately they disappear for years on end with only occasional reappearances, especially in the dark blue which is my preferred color. With traditional American sizing, they're just a tad larger than current trends. For reference, I have a 40 waist but sometimes go to 42 for comfort, depending on the brand. If you straddle sizes, between 40 and 42, or 38 to 40, etc., go with the smaller waist size. Lengths are as expected.

The Levi's 514 Straight Fit cords fit as expected. Size perfectly matches the same ones I bought a couple years ago. I ordered the Graphite and Burnt Olive ones. Both colors match the picture. The 514 is not as tapered as the 511, yet it is slightly slimmer than the 505.

I was looking for my size in corduroy pants in the nearby stores, but I couldn't find them.
So I went to Amazon, and sure enough, they were available.
