by Thrifty Good jeans, undependable sizing
My husband loves Levis 517 Flex. The cut is classic and fits his long slender frame. The extra stretch in the flex fabric adds comfort. They are classy and durable. Beware if sizing! I recently ordered 2 pair in the SAME SIZE, thinking it would be good to have extras of his favorite. They arrived marked the same but one pair was 3 inches shorter than the other. We kept the correct pair, and noted that for the future... Levis doesn't have reliable quality control for size.

by Bryan0135 Maybe best boot cut jeans around, but color problems with some.
I bought a pair of black and 2 pairs of rinsed Indigo. I like Arizonian Jeans better, but their boot cuts were loose fit and these are slim fit, so it gives it the cowboyish look I wanted. These pants don't seem that slim as other slim pants, though.
These pants are rather expensive and they have some problems. My black pants were good, but the rinsed indigo had color problems. I ended up ordering two of this color so I know what typically happens with it.
First, if you wash them even once the color changes drastically. It still looks good and dark but looks more like regular dark stone wash.
The second issue is with both of the rinsed indigo pants I noticed that there was a crease in the pants that was discolored. I tried to fold my pant legs on the seam, but they fold how they want. Well, this fold on the pants left a discolored light blue stick that ruined the look of the pants. The first pair was unacceptable but the second pair discolored around the seam, so I guess they're fine.
I never got the regular dark stone wash, maybe their better, but the black is always good. So I suggest not getting the rinsed indigo color. It says on the tag about not washing them too much. I might consider fading them more or dying my discolored pants.

by FarmerSmitty Great jeans - always fit, even as I change!
I have worn the 517 boot cut jeans for more than 20 years. As I got older, and the waist went from 32 to 34 to 36, the fit was always good looking and comfortable. After recently losing 28 lbs and dropping back to a 34 inch waist, it was great to see that the latest two pair fit like a glove. Great for a 58 year-old farmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by asilcela Comfortable, true to size, look great
My 15-year-old son has worn Levi's 511 slim jeans for the past two years. We could not find this style in a 30/34 this year, so we tried a pair of Levi's 517 bootcut blue jeans. The fit great, look great, and he likes them; so we ordered a black pair in the same style and size. Nice fabric. They are fairly soft and comfortable, and Penney's offered a good sale on the jeans. You can't beat Levi's brand! They are a good jean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zarbow I have worn them for years
I love the boot cut jeans as they fall over my hiking boots when I wear them. I also wear cowboy boots and they are a must for them unless maybe you are a drugstore cowboy and wear your levis inside of your boots. That sure doesn't work when you are working on a ranch and want to keep debris on the outside of your boots. Heavy construction lasts for ever. I can whole heartily recommend them!!!
