WEIGHT IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE COLOR, NOT THE STYLE
on June 1, 2015
First of all, I'd like to congratulate the gentleman in the picture on his choice of footwear. Boat shoes never go out of style.
These pants in the "Rinse" color are 14.3 ounces, which is very thick. The style is awful; someone else commented on here that, when you wear these jeans, you look like early-'90s Jerry Seinfeld. That's pretty much on the money. No person on earth should wear tapered jeans. Ever. And these taper a lot. But apparently some people like them, so who am I to judge.
Now, for all you people complaining, do a little research. You seem to think the weight (thickness) of the denim is associated with the style. It's not. It's associated with the color. If you go to the Levi's page and scroll through the different colors for each style, the weights are listed. Typically, the darker the color, the heavier the denim.
For instance, you'll notice the 550's heaviest denim is the "Rinse" color, at 14.3 ounces, whereas the 550 in "Tumbled Rigid" is considerably thinner at 11.9 ounces. If Levi's did a better job of advertising this, fewer people would complain about the so-called loss in quality. There's no loss in quality, Levi's just has far more options to choose from, many of which are made from lighter denim.
Hope this helps.
