514 is my fav fit. This particular color style is truly BLACK. Not a hint of blue! Perfect. It also still has that Jean fabric look, unlike some other black Levis that have such a uniform color and fabric that they barely look like jeans.

This review follows the purchase of my fourth Levis 514s, a pair in 32x30 Rigid Grey. Between them, they've demonstrated vastly different fits and levels of durability with just one pair being about right.

These latest jeans aren't bad but the legs seem to be the baggiest of the bunch and maybe a touch longer. And though I haven't actually measured them, it could just be the stiffer fabric that makes them seem that way.

One of my first pairs had both knees wear thin and rip, while another's legs are a touch short. The final, and my favorite jeans, fit just right and are one of the lighter weight (though darker blue-black) fabrics in the line.

A final, fifth pair I donated when I realized I'd ordered the wrong waist size, 31 vs. 32. Since it was only one inch too small and had already worn and washed them a few times, I thought I'd try to live with it and see if they'd break in and loosen but they never did. (Not my brightest moment, admittedly.) Those happened to be a dark indigo in a heavier fabric, a combination I found I didn't care for anyhow...

Despite the inconsistency, these jeans overall have the best fit for me so I'll probably try at least another pair to see if I can find some like the best set.

I'm 5' 9, 140 lbs and generally 30x30 fit me very well. Not the case with some of these jeans though so I'm returning them. I ordered the Bullock and Agraba jeans. The Agraba were very tight and stiff. They could probably be broken into but I would order a 32 waist instead of a 30. These were uncomfortably tight. The Bullock was also tighter on the waist than expected but closer to the relaxed fabric feel that I'm used to. So I would order that in a 31 or so. All my other 30x30 jeans fit me just fine, I just find these somewhat small for me.

Edit: After returning these I ordered a pair from Macy's and another from the Levis website. They both fit me perfectly as expected. Don't waste your time with these. Sizes are not as advertised, if you can I would highly recommend a department store website or the actual Levi website.

Purchased from Costco and developed a 2 inch tear above the red label in less than a year. The fabric is noticeably thinner than the denim used in the 501's of my youth. The thinner fabric is comfortable, but don't expect these jeans to be durable, they are not.

I have an old pair of 30x30 Levi's 514 that were quite beloved but are now relegated to the "marginally socially acceptable cutoffs" shelf. I bought these jeans in 30x29 in both "Dirt Rush" (a nice dark wash) and "Acre Rinse" (a lighter, more classic blue), since I felt the older jeans came in a little long (before I cut 'em off). All told, both pairs of pants look and feel pretty good.

The Dirt Rush are several---like three or four---inches longer than the Acre Rinse. As a man I'm pretty used to being able to buy jeans prêt-à-porter, so this was a bit of a surprise. That said, I'm happy to pull a J. Alfred Prufrock/hipster-expecting-a-flood look on the longer pants, or even hem them things get desperate.

The crotch on the Dirt Rush are much baggier, and they have a stretchier feel. The crotch on the Acre Rinse is quite tight, and the zipper is small---I can barely get my hand in. Both zippers have "chunky" feels, and don't zip particularly easily.

Bought 30x32 for my son who is long and lean. He wanted a slimmer fit jean without being a skinny jean. Fit is natural looking. They sit on the hips about 1-2in below belly button but they don't really look like mid-rise jeans. Straight through the hips and legs but baggy enough to move around in and room for muscle growth in his legs. These are not the jeans for you if you have any real mass to your legs. My husband races bicycles for fun and even though he also wears 30x32, he couldn't get these above his mid-thigh.

Ladies with Kardashian sized behinds or Jennifer Lopez sized backside, listen up! This is the boyfriend jeans you've been waiting for. The legs are slim enough but not tight (so it fits your outlandish man-sized thighs) but the seat of the pants are large enough to fit Arsenio Hall's famous buttocks. It may even fit the muscular physiques of the Williams sisters and a couple of tennis balls in the back pockets. In fact, I put a small phone book in the rear while the waist button was closed and I could still stick my full hands in the back pockets. Mind you, everything else fit just fine. The legs are slim but not skinny and the waist, while sitting on the hips. were snug enough to hold the pants up. I guess the foreign pattern makers who work Levi's jeans these days watch too many American TV shows and think that this is the land of the unfit lard behinds. To top it off, the fabric quality is atrociously bad. I'm going back to the 501s.

I ride a bicycle a few times a week, but I'm pushing sixty and I've put on about 20 pounds in the past couple decades. (5'8" 165 lbs) The reviews led me to believe these jeans would be a great fit. Not so!Based on the reviews, I ordered a size up (32 instead of 30 or 31 in other jeans). The jeans fit perfectly in the seat, but the thighs were so tight I could barely walk. Worse still, the waist was so loose it showed a plumber's crack while I was standing up.

I'm going back to my old standbys: LL Bean Double L "natural fit" jeans in size 30. The butt is a bit loose and the look isn't exactly fashion-forward, but they're the best-fitting jeans I've found.

I tried on a pair of the "slim" levis at JC penny - they fit great and I liked them. Ordered them off amazon and they were insanely small\tight even though they were the exact same size and model. Tried the "slim straight" and there were almost no differences. Finally, these "514 straight" jeans were what I was looking for. Nice fit, not baggy in the legs but not skin tight either. The "shoestring" color is nice.

I bought Levi's 514 Bullock (black) jean 32x32 which is usually my perfect fit . The size is totally off it was too small, then I ordered 33x32 . it was ok in waist but the length is too long. replaced it with 33x33 . there was almost no difference in length. Now I need to spend extra money to shorten them. The other jean I got is Levi's 569 32x32 perfectly match my size.
