Seems unnecessary to ask but Levi 501s will tick all the boxes you mention. They are even easy to find in the shops.

501's are way to baggy for what he is looking for.

My vote is BB Levi's. I use them When I make trips to visit construction sites.

Definitely go for APC new standards or if you want slimmer but still nice selvage denim petit standards just down size down too much - also if you aren't strained in budget go for Dior 21cm raws or 19cm indigo raws - I use to work for a laid back company and I pretty much wore a tucked in Band of Outsiders or Gant shirt tucked into some Dior 19cm indigo raws to work every day with some Clarks desert boots. Pretty much can't go wrong with that - it's casual but still very much classy. You can order the Diors from www.luisaviaroma.com and APCs from apc.fr or context clothing.com

I think the 1947 501s would be a good bet. Slimmer than regular 501s, with a tuck-able rise.

I don't think he has mentioned how he's built. 501s can be skin tight on some of us satisfied.gif Hardly baggy.

word!

as with all clothing, they are sensitive to size. cant throw out models universally like that. im lean by all accounts, but i am a bicyclist, and many denim and trouser model popular here look like ballet tights on me.

also, i find 501s just a tad too high wasted

I have a pair of the Uniqlo Made in Japan's that I bought last year. You'd think they were brand new—totally indestructible—and they're plain enough to go with something like a tweed sport coat. I think they're only available on the website now, but they do have the Japanese fabric ones in store. They selvedge models are stiff, but how they feel will depend on fit. I really wasn't prepared to spend more money, and I've been very satisfied.

Maybe a stupid question but where would I even go to find a good selection of 501s, Levis doesn't have stand alone stores, right?

They do. You can also try any mall.

Bloomingdale's and the other higher end department stores should carry the more expensive Levi's jeans.

Are they closer to regular 514 slim, or regular 511 skinny?

Similar to the 514, with a higher rise.
post #44 of 101
the rise is very important when looking to tuck in. i like the tellasons because they are low in the front, but the rise is like a straight-leg in the back. my shirts never untuck. i can't wear shirts tucked into my new standards because the back rise is just a little too low.

OP - save some cash and get the 1947 501 if the rise works for you. The denim is decent and the rise is good for tucking in - just what you want. Just be sure to size up because they will shrink like hell.

Is there anything like a Levi's 511 (ends up slim on me) but with a higher rise?
