They always fit true to size and when they get older, the holes that appear become a fashion statement.
These Levi jeans look good and fit great on a big man.

Product Description

After the '70s were over, things got more relaxed - —including our jeans. In 1985, we introduced the 550 jean. It had the same quality and craftsmanship as the original 501 style, but with more room in the seat and thigh. Today, it's the comfortable classic for guys who want a relaxed look.

Live in Levis

More than 140 years after inventing the blue jean, one thing is clear: Levi’s clothes are loved by the people who wear them - from presidents to movie stars, farmers to fashion icons, entrepreneurs to the everyman. 'Live in Levi’s’ asserts with confidence and pride that Levi’s clothes are indeed for everybody who’s not just anybody.

    What happened to Levis? I have been wearing Levis jeans since the early 1970's. I am amazed at how cheap they are made now. These are nothing in comparison to even the same jeans of 10 years ago. The fabric is thin and wears out quickly with moderate to heavy usage. I am very disappointed in Levis company for cheating out on the materials. More often than not the fabric fails after a few to maybe 2 dozen, washes and wear cycles and then I have to throw them out. My old Levis jeans would last at least 5 years under some of the worst abuse you could dream up. These new ones wouldn't last a week in those circumstances. They need to change their logo since there is no way in the world their current jeans could hold up to the test in their logo. That truly is false advertising now on their part. For those that don't know; the original jeans were attempted to be pulled apart by two horses back in the beginning. the horses could not/did not rip the jeans since they were so well made. That is the Levis logo to this day, two horses pulling on the jeans. Now they could be pulled apart by two 7 yr olds I am sure. Shame on you Levis! Raise the price and maintain the quality is fine with me. Raise the price and then cheap out on the quality is just wrong.

    Relaxed fit sizing, beware of Jeans sewed in Nicaragua.
    These Pants are not sized correctly. The recent Levi's 550's pants I purchased were made in Nicaragua. As soon as I put them on I knew they would not work for me. The same thing happened when I bought relaxed fit jeans, which were also made in Nicaragua, from another supplier. The jeans that I have tried on that were made in Nicaragua have a lower waist line and are not true relaxed fitting. I compared the Nicaragua made Levi 550's to my older Levi's 550 which were made in Mexico purchased several years ago.
    The Nicaraguan Levi's 550's sewed seams measured from the crouch are 1.5 inches shorter in the rear and .5 inches shorter in the front. And, as a result ride lower on the waist. They are not true to description of being larger in the hips and seat. That may not sound like much fit it does make a big difference.
    Compare this to recently purchased Carhart Jeans (Made in Mexico) which are true relaxed fit jeans and fit me nicely.

    Before I ordered these jeans, I read several reviews claiming that the Levis products shipped by Amazon are of a lower standard (e.g. thinner material). I'm happy to report that is NOT the case for my recent order.

    My sizing for jeans/pants is right on the border for a big and tall man. I can get some clothing that fits me in retail stores, but often I find many of the retail stores go up to 1 size too small for me, and I wind up having to go to a big and tall store (which sometimes has the opposite problem, because I am on the sizing border), and end up having to pay a premium price.

    Amazon sent me a coupon for $20 off a $100 order, and on top of that, their prices were much better than the retail stores that don't have my size. I will likely by all my Levis jeans this way in the future. After all was said and done, I was able to pick up 4 pairs of Levis for just under $100 out of my pocket

    These Levi's are NOT what they used to be. The fabric is (&(^&%! The knees had holes in them before the color even faded a bit. Sooooo much thinner than they used to be. I've ordered many times over the years for my husband, but Will NEVER buy again.

    It's the end of an era.

    My husband loves these jeans. They fit him just right. He has a large belly but a small rear and these don't bag or sag on him.

    I have to give AMAZON a thumbs up on this product and service. The jeans I ordered were exactly what I wanted. Too often in the stores, I find this size jeans too baggy in the seat and thighs. So I took a chance and find theses jeans were not like that at all.

    I'm a musician (sax player) and often wear jeans when I have to load in my own stage gear. I wanted something to wear that would not get torn or wrinkled easily and still have "a look", with my boots, shirt and leather blazer.. And these Levis fit that bill for me. I only gave four not five stars because I really wanted but could not find, in my size, a more upscale-dressy jean, like the ones I've found in some of the upscale stores. And I know, like the other black Levi jeans I own, these too will fade after so many washes. If Levi would make a product that kept its color longer, I'd give it the fifth star it deserves and recommended it to everyone!

    Do not buy jeans from Amazon. I just now got them after the return window. Only to learn that they are very bad fakes.
    Now I cannot even return them!

    Very thin material,
    There is even a repair that has been done.
    They are not shaped like real Levis or even like jeans for that matter.
    Made in Columbia.

    There is no link for me to leave feedback. Very convenient for hiding bad business practices.

    I would not recommend these pants. I had a belt loop break off after about 2 months use and the overall quality seems lacking. I do like the fit and the comfort, but they have decided that fewer belt loops is a smart idea and it wasn't.

    Next pair I bought was much better - changing my rating to a 5. Looks like they added 2 more loops to the pants (again) and they fit well.
