Rated 1 out of 5 by from absolute disaster Third time I've tried to buy the same 501's I've worn since I was a teenager. Third bust. The fit isn't "small" but there was no "all-over-the-map" category. This time, I tried six different pairs, they were made in four different countries, and each one fit radically different, from knees cut so tight they wouldn't bend to inaccurate waist and length. One pair had crazy wide thighs and sat too low on the waist, the next: two inches too short and totally baggy in the waist. Some had thin fabric, others weird stitching and tiny hems. It looked like I got six pairs of pants on the black market. These are so far from the Levis I have worn since I was 18 and I'm saddened, now 55, to have to find another source of jeans. Apparently the Levis we all knew and loved are long, long gone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Different cut I have worn 501s forever. Well over 30 years. They have changed!!! They are now cut very loose and baggy compared to what they used to be. Very upsetting and they look bad. The material isn't stiff like real denim.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product Been wearing 501 for 30 years but some are made in Vietnam, Mexico, Turkey and Egypt. This style I bought recently is made in Egypt. Anyways, I love wearing it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A moment of silence Yes my friends, the jeans of past are long gone. The denim itself seems to be half the weight of normal and the cut completely different. After a month of light wear, a hole already appeared on the pocket.The hem on the cuff is about an eight of an inch as apposed to the classic one quarter. I went to a store to buy a real pair and low and behold, they are gone. They will be missed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the same 501s Lifelong 501 wearer; this fabric is thinner, softer, and am quite certain that they won't wear as well, but will let you know. Looser in the rear, tighter in the thighs than the originals, but will still wear them. Wish they had a 'maybe' button for the recommendation option.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very upset This is my fifth pair of levis 501, before all the pairs of jeans are produced in Mexico, and were perfect. Now made in Haiti, and they really are different, they are longer, wider leg. I write to you to let you know that I'm upset. It seems to me that I have a reject.

Answer: 
501 is the classic button fly... I don't know the answer about big and tall v. regular... I make my purchases based on size alone... (Since I know my 501 size)...

Answer: 
Levis 501's are button fly. Not being big or tall I can't respond. 501's always fit like a glove for me.

Answer: 
The Levi's® 501® have a button fly instead of a zipper. This button fly in the 501® style has been the standard tradition ever since the beginning of the Levi's® brand. Other styles of Levi's® have the zipper fly and each style should indicate which fly closure it uses.

Answer: 
No zipper, just buttons. I can't answer the difference between big and tall and regular as these are sized by waist and inseam length.

Answer: 
Most original fit levi's have a button fly but if it says zipper then it would be. On the big and tall it has a little roomier fit in certain areas like the thighs and rump area. Of course the big and tall also go up to bigger sizes and start at a larger size as their start size too.

Answer: 
Buttons, no zipper. Standard for 501's. Big and tall are more "roomy" and relaxed, I am partial to B & T because I can get a pair close to the length, rather than getting a pair to fit my waist, but have legs that are WAY to long for me.

Answer: 
No zipper; button fly only. Waist and length are standard but fit can change. I have a 40" waist and a 36" inseam and the original fit is fine for my size.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
The material is prewashed before they are sewn so they might tighten up after each wash but only because they get stretched during normal wear. They fit very well to size!

Answer: 
Technically they already come preshrunk. So if there is any shrinkage it is very minimal. Of course on regular heating cycle. But these jeans are very durable.

Answer: 
They will still be a size 30x32 because mine fit the same as when I tried them on when I purchased them.

Answer: 
These jeans do not seem to shrink at all. If the fit is truly 30x32 you will have no problems. Buy with assurance that Levi had a very high quality and fit is usually true to size.

Answer: 
They don't shrink. Will come out of the dryer slightly tighter but will loosen up once you put them on.

Answers

Answer: 
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.
