Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made... I hover between 34 and 35, so I chose a 36" waist. Fits well, and not too snug. I like a little bit of room around the waist. The straight leg is just right, but I choose to turn up my cuffs. My biggest disappointment was that these 501's were made in Egypt and imported. To be fair, there are no construction deficiencies that I've noticed, but I was hoping that these jeans would be Made in the USA as advertised. All in all, a good pair of Levi's 501's in Dark Stonewash, which I will wear for a long time. I plan to dryclean only and not subject them to the washer/dryer routine. I believe that's the best way to preserve them. In a pinch, cold water hand wash and air dry is the way to go. Dear Levi's people: If you say Made in the USA, I tend to believe you. Please keep your promises. Nothing wrong with Imported, the quality could be arbitrary, and I prefer my Levi's to be made here. Thank you for reading my review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "Original" 501s NOT Original Anymore I have been wearing Levis 501 Original Button Fly jeans for almost 40 years...literally! In the last 3 years I have ordered a handful of Levis Original 501. And when they didn't fit like the old Originals I went to various stores and tried on the 501s. And none of them fit like the old Originals. Bottom line...Levis Original 501s are NOT Original anymore! The legs are now tapered. They are tight in the thigh and they don't fit over my boots. And no, its not because I have gotten fat. The rise is different as well. Where I used to be able to sit comfortably in my drivers seat with my wallet in my hip pocket, in the most recent pairs I feel like I'm sitting on a brick. The wallet is not in the same place with the new Originals as it was in the old originals. And I have my last pair of original Original 501s to prove they don't fit like the new Original 501s.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hems in the Original 501 Shrink to Fit Jean I am 60 years old and have been wearing Levi 501 Shrink too Fit since I was 13 years old. Yes, I like Levis. However, I have been very, very disappointed with the hems in them any more to the point I am looking for a complete different brand of jean to buy after all these years. The hems anymore instead of being roughly 3/8" to 1/2" are maybe if lucky an 1/8" therefore the hems of the jeans continue to roll up and look absolutely terrible. Very cheaply made anymore and it's very disappointing, shame on you Levi Strauss !!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought 5 pair and they a;ll tore in the same place within 4 months. Been wearing Levi's for over 40 years. They have always been great until now. I bought 5 pair of the Men's button fly 29x32. They all ripped in the same place within 4 months. right in the seat right by the seam, as if there was a flaw in the material. What a shame too. I have always been a faithful Levi's customer refusing to wear anything but Levi's At the price I paid per pair from (Sears) and the poor quality I I couldn't afford them at that rate of replacement even if I wanted to. When I called customer service to see if they would replace them (being it was all 5 pair bought at the same time) They guy I spoke with was not helpful at all and kept putting me on hold (over 40 minutes) until I finally gave up,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pay Attention To Where They Were Made! I wear 501s to work every day and have numerous extra pairs for leisure. I am always on the lookout for another pair that fits me right. Here's my "expert" advice: The 501s made in Mexico are vastly superior to those made elsewhere, especially Egypt. It seems the Egypt template is different; so the legs are more narrow and sometimes the seams don't line up exactly right. Personally, I only buy them in the store after I have tried them on. Two pairs can fit you differently. But if you get them right, they are iconic, IMO.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tiny narrow hem at the bottom curls up I have been wearing 501's for almost 40 years. I can live with the thinner material that is used now, but the tiny little hems at the bottom of the jeans that I just ordered are the last straw. They curl up, and are almost impossible to get to lay flat like the wider hems. I have sent numerous emails to their customer service department, and none of them have been replied to. Say goodbye to a 40 year customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but runs slightly big These pants are made of nice material, albeit bit stiff like a pair of stiff jeans, but considering Levi's is a jeans co, it makes sense. They do run slightly roomy on the waist to thighs so you should consider sizing it down if you're like me and like to wear fitted pants. The black color isn't deep true black but rather washed-out dark charcoal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible quality and workmanship. After wearing 501 shrink to fit Levi's for 40 years, I'm done. The quality is horrible. Inconsistent sizing, poor workmanship-is there any quality control? The 3 pairs I bought a few months ago are a joke-after washing they look like an accordion, with bleached out wrinkles. The inside seams are only single stiched! They are unwearable.

how much do these pants shrink?

If I order 30x32, What do these shrink to?
Asked by: larry
In my experience these will shrink about 1/4" in the waist and 1/4" to 1/2" in length. I wash them on warm and dry them on hot.

Where this 501 Levi's style was made? Was it in Mexico or USA? I want to know in order to proceed with the purchasing. Thanks

Asked by: Bigo
All mine that were ordered this past time were made in Mexico. With over 8 different washes/finishes, it might prove useful to see if these came from a different locale. Have been wearing 501 for 38+ years and it has been over 20 years since I remember made in USA; but again, some of the wearing and washes (or not) might still be made here. One added note. The straight blue jean (unwashed) has always had a shrink of almost two inches in the waist if you use a dryer. This will take several dryer cycles to get there. They used to have a disclaimer years back to allow 3% shrinkage. That is one in every 33"; that is actually x2 with heated drying.
