I took a chance and ordered these Levi's slim fit jeans and I'm very pleased with them. They aren't skin tight "skinny jeans" that are popular right now, they're regular jeans cut for thinner figures. And for some reason they are longer than other brands of jeans in his size. They fit him perfectly, and didn't shrink noticeably in the wash.
They come in a nice variety of colors and washes (I bought four pairs), and are reasonably priced at about $25 each with free SuperSaver or Prime shipping. As he grows, I'll be buying more of these jeans.
Edited December 2013: Our son has outgrown the original jeans this review is about, and I just ordered him 5 pairs in a larger size. The original jeans held up well, didn't shrink or fade in the wash, and still look decent after a year of school and playground abuse. I'm very happy with these jeans, and will continue to order them until he grows into mens' sizes.
Like low rise 501's without the buttons. If you're looking to bolster your jean wardobe with some slimmer fit low rise styles but afraid you're gonna come off looking like some Goth-punk rock-star wannabe who's so skinny they disappear when turning sideways ...relax ...those would be the "Skinny Fit" 517's not these. And if you're looking for some jeans that *don't* have "Relaxed", "Loose" or "Baggy" as part of their style moniker then these are the ones to get.
I would call these "sensibly-stylish-low-rise-jeans-for-the-more-mature-taste-crowd" ..."mature" in this case definitly *not* refering to beer belly and severe love handle embellished body types; consider these a goal for that weight loss or exercise program. They are also not the strict domain of the anorexic male model body type either; regular, non-gut bearing guys in halfway decent condition can wear these no problemo ...and look good. The waist sits lower than regular fit jeans but not radically so, they're sort of a mid rise ...no one's gonna be graced with viewing your choice of undergear or given a rendition of SNL's "Norge Man" routine when you bend over.
No matter your views regarding the modern day Levi Strauss Company, they *do* know how to make blue jeans that fit, are stylish and reasonably priced; the quality is still there. The 514's are called "Slim Straight fit" ...forget the "slim" part of it; they fit like Levi's 501's in the seat, thigh and legs with the leg openings the same size as 501's. I purchased a pair of 501's at the same time I bought the two pair of 514's so I had real time comparisons. The crotch on the 514 feels slightly higher than the 501's, but nothing radical or uncomfortable, and the cut of the jeans does help flatter the male anatomy ...your results may vary. If ya look good in 501's you'll probably look just as good, maybe better, in 514's.
Sizing of the jeans is a bit different; my usual 33x32 501 size translated into a 33x30 for the 514's. Shrinkage was not a problem in the waist (these were pre-washed) and the legs shrunk just a bit making them perfect in legnth for my taste. The only thing making these jeans better would be knowing they were proudly made here in the US of A ...like they used to be. My 514's were made in Egypt and Bangladesh ...hooray for the global economy. Okay, so much for the soapbox.
