5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Jeans., April 25, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wrangler Men's Cowboy Cut Slim Fit Jean (Apparel)
If you are used to Levi's or the regular Wrangler jeans, here's some help in choosing a the right fit for this. This jean is the "slim" version of classic Cowboy Cut jean that Wrangler has been making since 1947. Among the Levi's jeans, the fit of this jeans is most similar to that of the Levi's 512,but it is cut slimmer in the seat. It doesn't have as much orange stitching as a Levi's, the back pockets sit higher. It has a zipper fly. The so-called "rigid denim" looks a lot like the "shrink to fit" rigid denim of the Levi's button fly 501 when new and will lose a lot of indigo dye on the first wash, but that's where the resemblance ends. The 501 shrinks about 10%, but the Wrangler shrinks less than 3%, because it is Sanforized. So, you should buy your correct size, erring on the side of slightly larger if you are right on the border. The the really neat thing about the Wrangler is that they still have copper rivets on the back pockets, something Levi's stop doing generations ago when schools complained that the rivets scratched the wood desk chairs the school kids used to sit in!

Compared to the regular the Wrangler Cowboy Cut, the this slim Fit is quite a bit skimpier. The slim fit seat is smaller and the legs are pretty trim--it's more of a boy's cut. If you are really on the thin side, it may work for you, but many men will find it too constricting in the waist and seat.

Wranglers stonewash finishes are pretty mainstream compared to some of the more exotic things Levi's is doing now. These definitely are not so-called "destructed" jeans. You won't find whiskering or abrasion the way you will on the stonewash Levi's.

Overall, these are very solid well-made jeans that offer a nice alternative to the more popular Levi's models. Like Levi's, they are well made and indestructible.

how tapered is the leg?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 7, 2012 10:41:57 AM PDT
It is noticeably tapered at the ankle, but not 'pegged' or anything. I'd say about an inch.

Thanks for your review. But is this cut designed to sit at or below the natural wasitline?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 27, 2013 9:57:21 PM PDT
At or slightly above the natural waistline. Similar to Levi 505.

Thanks. They'll sit too high for me because I have long legs and short torso--I'd look out of proportion wearing them. Too bad. They sounded nice otherwise.

They are most certainly not tapered. They are a straight leg. "Cowboy Cut" has to fit over boots - cowboy boots. Tapered legs are not good for wearing over cowboy boots, or any other kind of boot.
