Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs VERY large; or Levi's sizing seems to have changed. I bought these in a 26 S. I have 3 pairs of 26 S in 505 Slight Curve. They fit me like a glove, but after several years they have worn out. I normally wear a Size 0 or 2. I was very disappointed that Levi's has discontinued the Curve ID line, but it is what it is. SO I bought these 505's. And they are HUGE on me. They fit more like 27's or 28's, or even 29's by the end of the day. Very disappointing, now I am stuck with pants that don't really fit right. I will have to pay extra to have them altered or just put up with giant pants. While it is undoubtedly a fine thing to fit into a smaller size than you thought you were those of us who really are that smaller size just want our pants to fit. I wish I had known before ordering how large Levi's run now, because I would have ordered a 24 or 25 or even a Junior or Girl's size. It's not just the 505's, either, because I also ordered 414's and 501CT's in 26 and they are also enormous! I love the styles and looks, I just wish they fit properly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Jean that has never gone out of style!!! Levis 505 straight leg jeans are the ONLY jean that I find myself purchasing. At 52 yrs old I find it unflattering and uncomfortable to wear anything that has too much spandex. Levis 505 have never let me down. I have noticed that some of the lighter shades of the 505's have more spandex than the darker so I always check the tag for material percentages. Levis 505 are the only 99% cotton jeans I can find. I try different brands and styles and am disappointed with the lack of cotton. I have been a loyal Levi customer for 40+ years and will continue to be as long as the cotton content is high. I absolutely love levi 505 jeans.They are a quality jean at an unbeatable price!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylishly Straight When You Don't Wan't Skinny! I just can't do "skinny jeans." I am a pear shaped 38 year old mom who is approx. 5 ft 8 and 190 lbs. I purchased a misses size 14 in both tall and regular lengths. I think cuffing / rolling the bottoms of my jeans is so cute, but skinny's don't work on me. These are the perfect compromise! The fit in the waist and through the hips is comfortable. The regular length allows me to cuff at my natural hem or higher where the longer length allows me to wear them unrolled and over a pair of boots nicely. These are my go-to jeans!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product and Fast Delivery to Store but Sizing Questionable Purchased 2 pairs of the exact same Levi jeans. One in a lighter denim, the other in a darker denim. They are both the exact same style number. I ordered online so that I could get "longs". The lighter denim fit perfect (almost a little big), I had tried these on in the store and they also fit about perfect (although I needed the longer length). The 2nd pair which is in a little darker denim (are VERY TIGHT) and NOT quite as long at the lighter colored ones. I will be returning the 2nd darker pair soon. I just can't figure out why the exact same pair of jeans, in 2 different colors, would fit so differently. Surprised by this. These are NOT cheap jeans and are brand name Levi's. Love the jeans but sizing differences have me seriously confused. Bummer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jeans For us ladies in our 50's these are great jeans. While they are not skinny jeans they fit well a are a little more modern in the cut but still very comfortable. If you like a great fitting jean, this is the style.
Date published: 2016-09-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from no gaps I wanted a comfortable pair of jeans, have always liked the way Levis fit, as I have gotten older comfort had become more important. I will buy these again
Date published: 2016-10-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I haven't worn Levi brand jeans since I was a teenager! I loved them then and now that I am 74 I love them again! I haven't worn Levi brand jeans since I was a teenager! I loved them then and now I love them at age 74! The fit is great, the waist fits perfectly and the hips and thigh area are great. They are so comfortable, I want to wear them everyday. The biggest plus for the jeans is that they come in Talls! As a 6'2" woman, that is very important to me. The length is perfect. I love these jeans, thank you JC Penny's for the great quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened to Levi's These jeans look cheap & feel cheap. What happened to Levi's? They have been my jeans for over 40 years & I am seriously disappointed at what they have become. I guess I have to find out what's happening with Lee & Wrangler! For anyone who is in my age group (60+) & have always worn Levi's, do not buy them.

Answer: 
I always wash my dark Jeans separate from other pants, etc. and hang them to dry. This keeps dye from "creeping" on to other items.

Answer: 
No. But, I use the washer sheets that prevent dye from bleeding to other clothes every time I put my lighter jeans and my darker jeans in the same wash.

Answer: 
Yes, they have been known to transfer on to other things, purses, boots, and shirts too! I still like them, though. I would suggest washing a few time to rid yourself of that problem.

Answer: 
The legacy blue is a dark blue jean. Where the sleek blue is a light color jean. On the whiskering, I would say no.

Answer: 
Legacy appears to be the original dark blue you would expect from a brand new pair of jeans. I did not order Immersion or Sleek Blue, so I am unable to offer a comparison between all three.
There was no whiskering on the jeans I ordered.

Answer: 
Sleek blue is just your basic medium blue. The legacy & Immersion are darker blue with perhaps a blackish undertone. Legacy, to my eye, is the darker of the two. The 2 pair I ordered both had very bad fading on the front of both legs, one leg on one pair being far worse then the other. The one pair they had in my size in my local JCP also had a faded/worn out look to it on the legs. Not the look I was after. When I think of "whiskering" I think of faded lines in the dye up high on the leg nearer the body & going more side to side then up & down. If that's what you are referring to as wiskering, then no they did not have that look at all.
Hope this has been of some help to you.

Answer: 
I can't give you measurements but I can tell you this. They are longer than Levi's Misses use to be. I'm 5'6" and have to cuff (at the hem line).I bought these 2 years ago and they were perfect. Now they are longer, the stitching color is different, and the fabric is of cheaper quality. Years ago I could take 2-3 pair of Levi's straight off the shelf and know that they were all going to be exactly the same thing. This is no longer the case. I've ordered the 512's several times. I've ordered the 505's several times. No 2 pair are alike.
