amazon logo Levi's changes sizes again
I have worn the 517 for over twenty five years and Levi's exclusively over 50 years. Two years ago, the cut changed and all 517's were relaxed fit. Send back and change size because they were too big. SO I ordered the same thing but now 517's are "slim cut". Doesn't work on me, I need some extra room. Now the number is 557 for the relaxed fit and I get to pay the postage to return the wrong cut jeans. Shame on Levi's: they should not have changed these 2 years ago and then change again this year.

amazon logo Hard to find jeans for guys
These jeans are perfect for the guy who wants to wear boots and not look like a geek or a thug. Just the right combination of loose and fitted.

amazon logo These are NOT your classic 517s
DO NOT buy new 517s if you are looking for the slim, fitted, look of the classic Levi's 517. That's been left in the dust. Apparently Levi's thinks only fat people wear jeans now.

These jeans have so much extra fabric it's almost comical. I bought a pair online, set the jeans out on the floor, and even with a 29 waist, there is so much extra fabric they look like women's jeans! It's like they have room for hips or something.

Gimme a break, someone who buys 517's is not going for the baggy gangster look, they're 517s!!!

Thoroughly disappointed with the direction Levi's have taken the fit of their jeans, I will never buy a pair again.

Don't be fooled by the other reviews that say these have a classic fit. They have a baggy, frumpy, 'modern' couch potato fit.

amazon logo What can I say?
What can I say? They are Levis. Perfect fit, excellent quality, and the most impressive thing was the price. Unbelievable!

amazon logo good jeans but...
Good product, on time and as shown in Amazon.
But...years ago, ordering the same # jean and the same size always brought the exact same fit and look. Lately, the same length, for instance, some times is a bit too long (can be fixed) or a bit too short (bad news). The price to be paid for savings by manufacturing offshore. Lets see if with the crisis we return to the memorable "MADE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA"

amazon logo Levi's 517
These jeans come washed so they are soft, supple and ready to wear. They are pre-shrunk so order the size you wear. I choose boot-cut jeans because I wear 12"-shaft western boots. Levies are the only jeans I wear because they fit well, look good, and get better with age.

amazon logo unhappy
Received jeans. Color was correct but it was clearly marked "slim" and my son needed a regular.It was clearly marked on all packaging that it was slim but never said so on the website and he wore them anyway to an event so I couldn't return. Waste of $40

amazon logo very good jeans
It's a very good pant for my husband. Nothing too special or fancy; he is very satisfied because he got what he expected

amazon logo May be counterfeits
Just to let some of you know, Levi does not make the 517 in a 35" waist, yet I see this seller selling this size of 517. If the Levi sites does not show it and someone is selling it, it's got to be counterfeit. It would explain some of the bad reviews here.

On aother note, I have had a lot of problem with inconsistant labeling. I have bought 3 pairs of levi's from a retail store, all marked the same size, but when I get them home and try them on, one will usually be very tight, like it was mislabeled. This happens a lot. I used to think it was counterfeits, but I bought them all from the same location from what appears to be a legitimate retailer.

I think there is a problem with counterfeits, but I also think levi my be blaming counterfeits for some of it's quality control issuess.
