I absolutely love these jeans! I am a tall (6'4”) male with a real thin waist. I wear a 32/34 and these pants fit like a glove. The description does not lie when it says it's the “perfect medium between baggy and slim” - they truly are. I can feel comfortable when I stand up and comfortable when I sit down. No matter what I do these jeans are ready to go. These jeans look good, fit good, and the pockets aren't at all dinky. Just purchased my second pair.

These jeans are terrible! I bought 4 pair about 4 months ago, washing them after 3 wears on average. About a month in, one pair developed a hole around the back pocket (on the inside corner, where jeans always wear thin). I thought I'd just snagged the pocket while working on the house, but now I'm sure it's because of the poor quality of the product. Now, a few months later, only 1 of my 4 pairs is still sans holes. One has a nice big hole in the crotch with more on the way on the thighs, while another pair has two decent size gaps around the corners of the back pockets (both of 'em!), just like with the first pair to fail.

Perfect slim fitting jean that is made for a bigger guy. Not an '80s style skinny jean fit. The 36 x 36 is a good fit with a little length.

I am a 6'5" swimmer and I finally found a pair of jeans that fit an athletic body. These jeans are comfortable, fit just right, not too tight, and not baggy. I will be getting more of these.

Nice color and fit. My son has a 32" waist and 35"-36" inseam. Ordered one day and received the next day. I love Zappos customer service!

These are the perfect Jeans. I bought them for my husband who is 59 years old. The baggy butt is gone. They are snug but not restrictive. He loves them. They have a slim fit gives him a modern look without all that skinny jean tight action. No men should be wearing jeans baggier than this. Check them out.

I bought Tumbled Black and I was looking for this color and fit at an affordable price for a while. It is the perfect fit and color. This is just like other designer brand jeans at $200. Daniel Craig wears similar jeans (7 for all man kind) in his 007 movie and this Levi's jeans is just like it. Zappos was great as always.

I was disappointed that these didn't come in 34 length in my waist size, but I just got an extra 2" in length by continually stretching them while they dried (after washing in cold). Remind me of Gap boyfriend jeans from 2009 - my favorites.

Excellent fitting jean. I'm 6'3, 200lbs, and I don't like jeans with extra material nor do I like a jean that's painted on. These fit perfectly and go over my boots easily. Went on to buy 2 other styles.

These jeans get 5 stars all around. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends. The Slim Straight fit is perfect. Not too tight, but slim enough to look great. Also, the material is not too thin or too thick. I know sometimes jeans are too thin and therefore rip easily, and some jeans are too thick and feel bulky and uncomfortable. These Levi's are neither. I'll probably be buying some of the other colors in the near future.

These jeans are great. From my 40+ husband to my 16 year old son, all 4 guys can wear these. Not too tight, not too high, nothing fancy but a great everyday jean if you don't want to wear out the Sevens too fast. A little loose in the leg for the super-trendy guy who likes a skinny leg. These are slim, not skinny. They stretch out, so go down in the waist if you are unsure (my son is 31 or 32 depending on the brand, so 31). One HUGE warning: my husband is a 34/36 inseam in these, and I just got him a second pair which came marked 36, but they are past 38". I measured them against my son's 35/38 pair, and they matched. Not cool! Never had this problem before, and I have purchase 10+ pairs...

The fit is perfect, but the faded, ragged and dirty look of the material used is not acceptable. Please make the Levi's 514 Slim Straight jeans available in classic denim colors that look new and not used.

The cut and fit is ideal for my build. I am extremely picky about this. Unfortunately, the quality of Levi's denim has gone to the dogs! I've owned about 6 pairs, and none of them have even lasted a year. You have to baby them, like a nice pair of slacks. Considering that I had a couple of pairs of 501's that lasted about 8 years, I am really disappointed in the 514's.

First let me start with how wonderful Zappos return policies are - good thing too. My son wears a 34 x 32 jean, after deciding on the tumbled rigid wash jean and reading the reviews on some discrepancy in sizing in this color I ordered a bit larger, 35 x 32. When we got the jeans they were so small that my younger tall slim son who wears a 32" waist could hardly get them fastened around his waist. We guesstimated that the 35 waist was closer to a 30 or 31" waist, using my skinny son as a gauge. Next we thought that if the sizing is that far off it would mean we had to go up several sizes so we ordered a 38 x 32. The 38" waist is closer to a 36" waist and is a bit large. I am going to try and shrink these in hot water and a hot dryer and see if I can get closer to the right size that way so I will not send this pair back but might lose out. From what I have read the other colors do not have much sizing issues as compared to the rigid wash. I'm not sure why the jeans I have ordered are so far off regular sizes except maybe there was a crack party one day in the sizing room at Levi's in the tumbled rigid wash color department. Shame because the color is really very nice. Shame because after being in the Navy for five years son needs some cool updated going out clothes.

Perfect length, perfect waist, perfect jeans! I have waited a long time for the perfect pair of up-to-date styled and slim fitting jeans for a 50+ year old guy - these fit the bill perfectly. I just received two more pair...from Zappos of course!

Been trying for years to get my husband to wear slim fit jeans. Tried these on in a store, he bought them and loved the. Ordered 2 pairs from Zappos, being a VIP, I got them next day. I think he might want more of these jeans.

Brands I'd also recommend: Levis are the best jeans for the price and fit.

Having suffered through the different washes that these streaky new stretch jeans offer, I finally got me a pair of indescribably soft, know-it-the-first-time-you-put-em-on-they're-your-new-favorite jeans. And of course Zappos didn't make me wait: Order them (at the same price as the local stores who don't have nearly the selection) and there they are. Am disposing of the ones I've settled for and starting my new collection!

I am a tall and lean guy who has trouble with jeans. These fit great and the length was truly a 34in inseam. I would recommend these jeans.

My husband loved the jeans! He got them as a gift from me and I was really looking for jeans that fit him well, without looking too baggy or out of style. These jeans fit great! And he really likes them ,too. The service and helpfulness was much appreciated. The woman who helped me was such a pleasure to talk to. Thank you.

I bought these for my son for Christmas - he actually sent me the link - so there was no way I would get it wrong. Of course, when he opened the gift, he smiled and said "perfect Mom!"

Love the Jeans. They fit well and I already own 5 pairs of 514's. These are the least expensive pair I've purchased so far. I don't know if I'll ever clothes shop in a store again.
