Levi's Fit Guide
You can buy "Original Fit" or "Shrink-to-Fit" 501s. Both styles will feature a straight leg, classic seat and thigh, and a 17" leg opening. 501s are usually worn at the waist by men with slim to average builds. If you buy the Shrink-to-Fit design, buy them 1-3 inches larger in the waist and length than what you would typically wear.
These are a regular fit designed with a straight leg, classic seat and thigh, and a 16.5" leg opening. Fit to sit at the waist and similar to a 501, except the 505s feature a zip fly, slightly slimmer leg opening, and a higher rise.
This straight fit jean has a 17" leg opening and sits below the waist. Offers a slim look, but not a skinny jean.
Designed with a slim upper leg and bootcut to slide easily over work or western boots. 18.5" leg opening. These jeans sit below the waist and are available in rigid (unwashed), rinsed, or stonewash denim.
These Levi's offer the traditional relaxed fit. Providing a looser fit with relaxed seat and thigh, and 16.5" leg opening, these jeans sit below the waist. 550s are great for men who have to do a lot of bending on the job or have larger thighs.
The 559 is your relaxed straight leg jean. A good work jean with relaxed seat and thigh, and an 18" leg opening. Worn below the waist.
This "loose straight" style has a slightly looser fit than the classic. Designed with a straight leg, loose seat and thigh, and 18.5" leg opening. Worn below the waist.
