3.0 out of 5 stars May be okay but, January 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These may well be okay but I have two complaints on the pair I ordered.

First is that "sidewalk" isn't the color of a sidewalk but rather the color of freshly poured cement, that is, about two shades darker than dry sidewalk, definitely darker than what's illustrated. I'd call it medium gray. That wasn't quite what I expected. Maybe they fade after a few washings.

Second is that I've been wearing only Levis for many years and the inseam sizes always ran true on the 517's and other series, but here, even allowing for some shrinkage, my 34x34's were more like 34x36's, so I had to return them to order a 34x32 which probably still will break noticeably over my shoes. In fairness that bunchy too-long look seems to be in, but had I worn this pair in stocking feet I would have been stepping constantly on the fabric.

I really hope they shrink 3-4 percent on washing because for being "super skinny," out of the box the pair I returned still seemed to have surprising looseness over my thighs, calves and rear, and I am slender but not built exactly like a toothpick. Just getting a smaller waist size wouldn't work unless I spent many afternoons at the gym.

Thirty years ago Levis made and later discontinued a light weight stretch jean that fit perfectly without being too tight, which would have looked gross then and now, or getting saggy after three wearings and sliding down an inch or so on my hips, the way the much heavier 517 boot cut stretch version of today does.

This doesn't make sense. Were you meaning to say something else? Because this sounds like what you're LOOKING FOR. Then you say it... looks "gross"???? Very confusing.
