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)!

The new 501 jeans are phony. I recently purchased three pair of 501 Levi's via the internet from Penney's trusting that the jeans I was familiar with, and trusted name would be of high quality denim, and brass buttons. I am sorry to say that the dye is uneven, no brass buttons, and thin cotton, not denim. These are not the 501 jeans I love these are the same quality jeans one would pay ten dollars for at a discount store. In other words they are trash.

Fabric is much "coarser" than my other 501s, and sort of scratchy. Fit OK when initially tried on, but shrank much more than my other 501s, some of which are now 10 years old, ever did. After only two gentle washes in cold water and drip drying only, these are now too short in length, and too tight in the waistband and crotch. I am quite disappointed.

I purchased 501's, 505's, and 514's. These 501's are tighter than I'm used to: I previously only dwell in the loose fit realm. However, the 501's have more crotch/thigh area than the 514's. Overall, I like these. But I will warn here as I did on the other two reviews, some of the "color" choices on Levi's are actually a stretch denim, and Zappos descriptions do not include that information. You may want to cross reference the color choices with the Levi's website to ensure there are no surprises when you get your jeans.

Gotta love the classic look and feel of the 501 jeans. Had never had the black on black color after years and years of wearing only 501 or 501 shrink to fit for my jeans. The black color is awesome, fit is pretty much the same, and they look great.

I'd also recommend: Ray Ban

Tried them on once and immediately returned them. Actually, that's not quite accurate -- I attempted to try them on, only to discover that the sizing is completely off (way too small) and nowhere in the item description did I read that these are "skinny jeans" -- which they most certainly are. Also, as others have commented, the quality of the fabric is low. Thin cotton, not authentic denim.

Our daughter had a country wedding, on the bridge, and the dress code was "dark denim jeans" easy? Yes, if you chose Zappos -- impossible if you chose to shop locally. Thanks Zappos.
