I have Levis 505...what does that mean? How is it different than 501, the higher the better? I know nothing about all this, except to buy what fits. I don't like the way jeans look though, my legs are too skinny for them or something
501 is the original cut. High rise, stright cut thighs, tapered leg. I think 505 is the relaxed cut? The higher number just means it's more recent, not necessarily better. I think 517 is high rise boot cut and 527 is low rise boot cut, but I'm not sure. The Levi's site explains it.
