The cut of these jeans is similar to my old 505's but the waistband is ridiculously big and stretchy; in fact, the fabric is altogether too stretchy given it's supposed to be only 1% elastane. I'm sending them back.

I love theses jeans. I am 52 years old, 5'5 and 130 lbs., 29" at the narrowest part of my waist, 39" at the hips and 23" at largest part of each thigh. I bought a size 8 and they fit perfectly. It's been a huge struggle to find jeans that fit my body as I've gotten older and my waistline is growing larger and softer. Even midrise jeans feel too low and uncomfortable anymore, as the waist always seems to fall right at my muffin top area, looking and feeling unpleasant. These 512 jeans are a higher rise jean, they cover my belly button. The material is super soft and stretchy, but I haven't had any real issues with them bagging out after an hour of wear, like other Levi's I have in my closet. Although these are labeled a skinny jean, they do not fit like the skinny jeans that younger women wear. They are a little looser thru the legs, and the ankles are not as snug. They should be more accurately labeled a slim cut jean. They are more of a classic fit. The one thing I did not like is the fact that the length is listed as 32", but one pair I bought is only 31". Levis has some quality control issues in that area that need to be addressed. Unless you have a short inseam, you won't be able to wear these with the high heeled shoes that the models in the picture are wearing. I wear mine with the flattest of flats. I like these jeans because they fit well, they look and feel age appropriate to me (both the cut and the colors) and they are so very comfortable. Younger women may find these are "mom" jeans, but if you are older and tired of trying to find jeans to fit and look like grown up jeans, you might want to give these a try. If you wear them with a nice blouse or cardigan and flats, they look very nice, nothing frumpy at all about them. I am so happy with my purchase that I'm going to buy 2 more pair right now, because nobody else, including Levis.com seems to sell these, which means they've probably been discontinued. Figures.

These jeans were exactly what I was looking for! A perfect fit and comfortable as well. Not to mention Zappos amazing service. Definitely a win win purchase.
The story of the legendary Levi's® jean began on February 26th, 1829 with the birth of Levi Strauss. Creator of the classic 'blue jean', Levi has seared his way into the hearts and souls of people across the globe. Representing the spirit of bold independence, Levis jeans have always been built for pioneers of the past, present and future, making them a household force to be reckoned with.
Originally an immigrant of Bavaria, Levi traveled westward in search of greater opportunities and fortune. An eager businessman of his time, he established a wholesale dry goods business simply dubbed 'Levi Strauss & Co.' It was through this outlet that he imported dry goods, including clothing, umbrellas and fabric. Business was blossoming with the rise of the gold rush, but it was in 1873 that Levi struck gold. Levi Strauss, along with co-creator Jacob Davis patented the process of adding rivets to pants for increased strength and durability. Their creation of the classic 'blue jean' can now be found in households and catwalks worldwide.
LS&Co exists today as one of the world's largest brand-name apparel marketers with sales in over 110 countries. The Levi's brand continues its legacy by consistently providing quality jeans and products, and by earning the trust of consumers, investors, employees and society as a whole through their responsible business practices. This principle of responsible commercial success is embedded in the company's 156-year history and continues to anchor the way LS&Co operates today.
