So I purchased the 521 slim tapered as beater jeans (lol). Ehh. I want to like levi's, (classic durable jeans at a good price) but none of their 10,000 cuts work on me. The fit was too baggy at the knees, then did this weird thing where the last few inches were tapered, so the hem was awkwardly small while the calves were baggy. May rehop on the Dior train.
How much did you size down? I went down 2 from my normal tagged size and they were a true slim jean
These should hold me over until I can snag some Left Field slim straight cone mills denim.
Wow, thanks for posting the measurements. These are identical to my last pair of Mabitex.
The 521 looks absurd unless you want puffy thigh pantaloons. 513 still is more room in the thighs than I would like, it looked a little weird around the knee but maybe just needed some wear. 513 might have been OK sized down 1, but they don't make 31x34 in the rinsed from what I can tell. I'm not sure if Levi's waists are getting bigger or if I've lost weight, but both 521 and 513 were too loose up top all over the place without sizing down, and even then the fit is questionable. I dunno, disappointing overall, I guess I'll just deal with lower rise 511 and look a little dated than bother with 513.
I've been wearing 513's most days now for the past 2.5 weeks. I usually wear 514's, and they used to be the best fitting pant I owned, but 513's are an improved version. The leg feels slightly slimmer, the cut follows my leg a lot more, as there is much more discernible taper from the thigh through the legs. The high waist is also very nice, I find it to be more comfortable. If I had a camera I'd post a pic of me wearing both. These are the best fitting Levis' I've ever worn hands down, and I highly recommend them as a much better 514.
