I will never buy another pair of these jeans.,
This review is from: Levi's Men's 550 Relaxed-Fit Jean (Apparel)
The last FOUR pair of Levi 550 relaxed fit jeans I have purchased have had the second belt loop on the left pop off where it is anchored at the bottom. It just pulls out and leaves a hole in the fabric. No, I do not pull up my jeans up by the belt loop and no, I do not yank out the belt when removing it. You would think that I would have learned my lesson sooner. The quality of this product has declined terribly in the last few years, probably due to someone's brilliant idea of cutting costs. Well, no more overpriced Levis for me. I am done paying top dollar for junk!

I agree. How tough would it be to program this improvement into design and quality control?

most of mine do exactly the same. Levi's quality's slipped a lot in recent years.

EXACT same thing happened with mine. Levi's is consistently selling jeans where the belt loops won't even stay on? Seriously?

Bwaahaha - the EXACT same thing has happened to three pair of mine over the years. Left side, second loop, bottom. I use that as my 'wear indicator' and donate them to Goodwill after that happens. Makes no sense though.

Ditto, 4 of 4 pair in 2 years. I thought it was me.

Thanks for the advise. Same thing happened to me with the loop of my old Levy Baggy Jeans that I like so much and was discontinued.

All 8 pair of my husband's levis popped the 2nd left loop. WTH? FYI my Uncle is farmer, he swears 1 pair of Levi has $.12 of cotton in them.

$0.12 may be exactly right, which means there is a huge amount of expense in labor and distribution. You wonder why it's so much less expensive to make something overseas and ship it here - when (in this case) 99% of the expense is labor oriented, and labor overseas is a fraction of what domestic labor is. Levis sells their regular 501s for $48 but you can buy the USA made 501s for $130. Food for thought.
