I look at the picture in the advertising of the jeans being pulled in two directions and I wonder if the current product could withstand that experiment. Maybe they should stop advertising that way.
I wouldn't buy one thread from amazon if it wasn't for their freewheeling return policy.
I'm 6'4" 235 and I can get away with the 514. I have an athletic build. I wear 36 Waist 34 Inseam. I have to say that the 34 inseam is LONG so be careful. When I was a kid I always had to hunt for 36 inseam 501's but these days a 34 inseam is PLENTY long so either My legs have shortened and my torso kept growing of over the years Levi has changed their dimensions to make people feel shorter?? I dont know.
ANYWAY..... They are my new favorite Jean! These are advertised as slim and that is what they are. They are tighter in the thigh but still comfortable. However the seat and crotch have plenty of room and for me the low rise is also more comfortable then the old style 501's or even 550's. I have actually grown tired of the baggy look anyway. If you are chubby or thick, well these might not be your style. But I am still trying to look hip in my 40's and these 514's are the trick!
They fit exactly as the 527 but the Boot Cut 527 has a larger leg at the bottom and larger opening. I like those as well but they are a bit to belled out for me. The 514 still has a large leg opening and looks great without being overly belled out or being tapered down too much like the old 501's when I'm wearing my flip flops (I live on he beach)
They ride Loooow. So beware. If you are not used to the low ride style I suggest you get a pair and try them out. I wear a belt to adjust the ride so it doesn't slide ! Having to pull up your jeans all the time when you sit gets old so for me a belt is a requirement with the low ride jeans.
LOVE 'em !
I also wear these while riding my bicycle, which brings me to the main problem with these. They cannot take a beating, or a solid glare. In the past nine months, all six pairs have developed holes. Five of them acquired their holes in crashes. Not one pair of these has survived even a mild crash that one could reasonably expect cheaper jeans to survive. One pair hasn't even been crashed in. The right knee simply wore through in regular use.
Don't get me wrong, I do like these. The worst-off ones will be cannibalized to repair the mildly damaged, and replacements will be purchased. But Levi just isn't as good as they claim to be. The fabric isn't half as durable as they make it out to be. Nor is the sewing, which marketing material printed on the pockets begs you to investigate, particularly impressive. One pair was actually defective, as the fly was sewn so badly I had to iron it down every day lest it curl and expose the zipper.
It should be noted that each color is an entirely different fabric. Shoestring is extremely thin and light, Midnight somewhat less so. Both are quite thin, so I never wore them while working. Of the colors I've tried, Indigo Wash does seem intended for at least some actual work. The fabric is noticeably thicker than the other two colors I've used, though thinner than cheap Wrangler's. The three I purchased in Indigo Wash became my standard attire in the not particularly dangerous job of a dishwasher. Still, the pair that wore through in regular use was in Indigo Wash.
Finally, don't buy these blind. Try on a few sizes somewhere, figure out which works best, then buy a few. These do not shrink in any noticeable way, even with a hot water wash and high temperature dry.
They have now apparently discontinued the Cover Up wash which I have been getting and now I have to try a different one again.... We'll see how this goes.
