DO NOT BUY LEVI'S FROM AMAZON!!!! THEY ARE NOT THE SAME!!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Levi's Men's 501 Original Shrink-To-Fit Jean (Apparel)
I purchased 2 pairs of Levi's 501's and I am returning both pairs. Apparently, Levi's ships lesser quality jeans to Amazon because you can't see them before you buy them.
Both pairs of jeans have lines up the legs where the fabric spools were welded together. I have washed them 3 times now hoping the lines would disappear after a few washes but no luck. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME JEANS I HAVE BOUGHT IN STORES. I AM SURPRISED AMAZON ACCEPTS THEM INTO THEIR INVENTORY. THEY ARE POOR QUALITY. GO TO SEARS SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAD TO IRON THESE JEANS TO WEAR THEM. I HAVE NEVER HAD TO IRON 501'S.
Maybe Amazon buys them at a discount? I don't know. But these jeans sure do suck.

thank's I was just about to purchase exactly that item, but your post changed my mind. You really should be able to see what your buying before you buy it.

That's not the point F. Hamel. I bought them and they are not the originals. Lighter material and single stitched on the inside leg. It should be double stitched. Amazon is wasting their customer's time and possibly money if they thought they were getting the originals.

I just purchased two rigid stf 501s and one came from mexico and the other from Egypt. The Mexican one is the inferior quality you're referencing but the Egyptian on had the proper stitching. Unfortunately the Egyptian one barely shrank at all. 31x32 went down to maybe 31x31... Not kidding. And because the rise is taller in these I don't wear them as low so 31 is literally swimming above my hip bone.

motocross066, Levi's 501 STF jeans, made in USA are still around. Retail price is about $180. They are no longer listed on the Levi's website, however.
