Levi’s 502 Mens Jeans

Recommendation #: Levis 531 And 541

Levi’s Fits Explained – 502 Regular Tapered Jeans

One brand I always recommend is Levis. Theyre ubiquitous, affordable, and have a ton of different models that fit every body type.

For years, my favorite jeans for athletic guys was the Levis 541 Athletic Taper. Still a great pair, by the way. I wear the 541 model exclusively, because Im not slim, and I have bigger legs .

A few years ago, Levis added a new model, the Levis 531 Athletic Slim Taper. I LOVE this pair for the slimmer yet still muscular-legged dudes.

Still made with a comfortable rise , with an athletic fit in the hips, butt, and quads, but slimmer from the knee down just a touch.

Also they seem to improve the sizing in the waist. I buy my actual size now , whereas with the 541, I had to size down one to two whole sizes.

Heres the one problem with Bonobos, however: The pants have a lower rise.

I feel like I need to keep hiking my pants up or my b-hole will be exposed. I tried several versions and I always had the same urge to pull up my pants.

It could just be my particular body proportions or build, so I suggest trying at least the Athletic fit for yourself.

The Problem With Levis Denim

I have two gripes about Levis, however.

For one, their sizing and fit is inconsistent. So if you have three pairs of Levis 541 in a 32×30the exact same size and modeltheres a good chance theyll fit differently.

Second, they seem to change model numbers often. So dont be surprised if Levis discontinues your favorite model the second you discover it.

The first pair of tapered Levis jeans I bought years ago was the 508. Its been phased out since . And this isnt the only example of Levis changing model numbers. Im sure if you Google it, youll find plenty of stories.

Levis has solidified their offering of tapered models. however:

All of these models have stretch denim fabric options. Typically its a 98/2 cotton/elastane blend, which is ridiculously comfortable. I always recommend at least 98/2 blend nowadays.

For the denim purists, there are rigid, non-stretch versions as well.
