A versatile slim straight jean. Best for slim, athletic builds.
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.

After discovering good beer which resulted in unexpected stomach weight, I found that the 501s and the 511s were no longer my preferred jeans.
Since then, I discovered the 513s.
The 513 Stretch Slim does a few things for me:
-It has a slimmer pant leg without being too tight in the thigh or calf (which I experienced with other "slim" fit jeans).
-It sits below slightly below the waist, which is comfortable. But it is not baggy.
What would I change?
- I am not a fan of the bootcut. With that said, it does give the jeans a nice look for those occasions where you want to be casual but not informal. It goes well with high top shoes and boots, but feels awkward with my puma gym-shoes. I wear a 33x30, so I am not in a position to go down a size on the length. If I wanted a pair that looked better with casual sneakers then I would consider going down a size in length.
- The material is more porous than the non-stretch Levi's. As a result, it needs to be washed more frequently.
alas, i'm a product of my formative years so while i wear the levi slim bootcut with boots, i wear these for all other wear with either dressy shoes, or super casual, depending on the denim wash you get, these can take you to an expensive dining evening, or playing basketball. i have 2 pair that cover that range with different washes.
i will say the waist size varies up to almost an inch at times, but that doesn't really matter. the last pair i got came a bit tighter, but these stretch so after a few wearings they stretched out to perfect. this pair came at about the waist size of my other pair AFTER it stretched, which is fine. they both are the same size. my other pair has a lighter/more worn wash, these are dark with almost no wash to them, for dressing up. they aren't 'skinny' jeans, but just tapered along those mid 1960s lines so they fit low on the waist and slim in the hips and legs, but aren't tight from the knees down, just a nice taper.
this model, 513, is not usually made visible on the levi website, and you have to know about them or you won't really find them, but after 501s they are the iconic style of the 1960s...they are technically called 'slim straight fit', which is what they are. straight fit, just a bit lower waisted and slimmer in fit.
best of the best. as said, waist fit is not horribly critical as long as you get close. i'd get them snug as they do stretch out to fit. however, i've found that like all clothes these days, maybe it's ego gratification for customers, but what used to be a 33 waist is now a 32. in all other jeans or pants i take a 33 waist. i took a 32 in junior high. i bought these in 32 waist...i think they are just stroking my ego with that. but if it helps you pick your right size, i share it.
First of all, the color is lighter than picture, only to further lighten after several washes.
Next, I am 6'1" and 170lbs. I have worn a 32 x 34 for as long as I can remember. I have a pair of 505 stretch that I love! They fit tight and are comfortable at the same time. I went for the 513's thinking they would be a little slimmer. Wrong. First off, despite the label on amazon, these jeans are not stretch. If you have ever tried on a pair of stretch vs. non stretch, it is a complete different feel.
These jeans - weight wise- are very light. Not a great quality as they wear quickly and also lose shape easily, like one wear between washes only. My other Levi's can go almost 3-4 wears before needing a wash. I am still giving it 3 starts, as for that first few hours of wearing these jeans they are great! however after 4-6 hours (even sitting) they are mis shaped in all the wrong places.
I will try to order a different pair, but will be sure to inspect the jeans thoroughly before taking the tags off.
