These jeans are really special. They look like they're gonna fit ordinary, but as you put them on u start noticing each detail was made to them look great on you. From the pockets size and position on the buns, to the quality of the fabric. Everything really made for a great look!
I received these pants as a gift and I love them. The Trepunto stitching on the back adds a very cool look. I am a slim guy so I only look good in tight fitting pants. These are no skinny jeans, but they were pretty slim fitting and I was happy with that. I would love it if Levi's stopped using the black, real looking leather patches. I don't think they are a deal-maker for anyone; and for those of us who don't wear leather, they are definitely a deal-breaker. Overall though, these are a great pair of pants.
I usually wear size 31X30 but after my last pair of 527s was a bit to slim on the waist (midnight train) I decided to up the size to 32X30. This pair fits perfectly and boot cut is perfect for wearing, well, boots. Overall fabric quality is good for the price. However, one gripe I have with Levi, not the jeans, is that the shipping is much much longer than the website states it will be (1.5 weeks just to ship from factory instead of up to 6 days, another week of shipping after that). Would recommend.
I was curious about how the waterless coloring would affect the feel of the jeans and it definitely makes them a bit stiffer... we'll see how they feel after a couple washes though. Other than that though the color is good and the fit just right. I would recommend them for sure.
