Levis 501's are the only jeans worth wearing! All those other models are okay, but 501's are the originals. Great fit, great look. The only others worth considering are 505's - if you can't deal with the button fly. (Opinionated, aren't I?) Unique to Zappos is the inseam measurement of 31". I have checked 20 or 30 sites, and all have inseams either 30 or 32. 30 is just barely okay for me, and 32 bags up too much over my shoe. 31 is perfect, just enough break over the shoe. Only Zappos has 31 inseam - not even Levis site has that length. (For the paranoid among us, I did extensive reading about signs of counterfeits. None of the signs, obvious and subtle, show up on Zappos Levis. These are the genuine article.) So, if you want the real deal, in more size choices than anywhere else - this is the place to get 501's. The only jeans to have (in my humble opinion)!

These new 501's do not feel like 501's, something is off in the waist, they feel like a low rise jean, almost like a hip hugger. Way too tight in the crotch. The other thing is the belt loops, classic 17 oz 501's have 7 loops, these only have 5. I've been wearing 501's since high school, almost 30 years now and whatever Levis has done to the waist needs to be undone. Hate to move on to 505's because I love the button fly but I just may have to.

I only wear these type of jeans because they are perfect. Zappos delivered for free when JC Penney and Macys, even Sears, wanted at least 7 bucks. They came faster than promised and had no problems. I will purchase from them again.

I'd also recommend: levis are the only brand

Basically the best pair of jeans I have every owned. As other people say, buy them roughly 2in bigger in waist and 2-4in bigger in inseam. I normally wear a 32x34, so I got a 34x36 and they fit well. Plus the shrinking was a lot of fun, having a custom fit is part of the appeal.

I'd also recommend: New Balance
