If you've worn 569s in the past, these are no longer the same jean.,
This review is from: Levi's Men's 569 Loose Straight Leg Jean (Apparel)
Stay away from these. Levi's is trying to force-feed us low-rise skinny jeans. As others have mentioned, the fit has completely changed. To Levi's: There's a number on the jean that denotes fit, if you are going to change the fit, change the number!
Before buying these, I'd already purchased 3 others in the last two years, size 38x34. I wear "loose-fit" jeans not because I'm stuck on the baggy, sagging jeans fad, but because my legs just don't fit into similarly sized 501s. I thought I'd found my perfect jean, and purchased these without worry of trying them on. Bad move.
These new jeans will give you plumber's crack, even if you're not prone to it. I don't have a bubble butt, but I don't have a non-butt either. These jeans only offer 75% coverage for someone with a semi-athletic, proportianate build, who likes to wear their jeans at the waist.
Honestly, I should rate these a little higher, because I have been complimented on them. They are so tight they show a bulge in the front, where the others didn't, and because of that and the deep indigo blue finish, people in redneck country love 'em. I'm thinkin' they think this Californian finally came over to the Wrangler side of things, that's how tight these jeans fit. I haven't experienced the quality issues others talked about, but I don't have another pair to judge consistency on. I actually like the "rough" fabric, I just wish there was more of it.

Agreed, they are cut totally different now. The pockets also got a lot shallower. The quality I have expected and consistently gotten for over 10 years is gone. Time to find a new favorite pair of jeans.
