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.

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)!Read more » « Show less November 11, 2011 by Richard H

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.Read more » « Show less November 27, 2009 by Anonymous
I shop Zappos because they carry a variety of sizes, they realize everyone is not a size 10 and 110 pounds. I will never shop anywhere else. Thanks Zappos!
I'd also recommend: Ralph Lauren for men

I am so thrilled with your speedy service, your free shipping, and the fact that you actually carry jeans for my extremely hard to fit son! Thanks!

Good fitting jean...once I got the right size. I had to go smaller and shorter than khakis. I purchased other colors,as well which fit well. As the "optic white" is very white, I haven't had the occasion to wear them yet!

Levi's -- they speak for themselves. My husband wears them to work every day and we have found the best place to get them is at Zappos. Easy, to your door, no problems. Thanks Zappos!

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.
