The above APC fit pic looks good, though. They'll look great with a jacket.

Don't the 514s have a really low rise? According to the Levi's website, the 514 has a 9 3/4" rise on a 32/32.

I still need to unzip in the men's room but only barely.

I have a hard time keeping a shirt tucked into my 514s. I think you'd be OK if you had a very flat stomach and a very slim shirt.

straight, by definition, cannot be tapered. and the term slim is interpreted differently from label to label and its fit from person to person.
95% of jeans marked "slim" literally will not fit on my legs.

thats a clean look but could use 1" in the drop and in the leg. pants that look like that standing up hug and pinch on the nuts and the thighs sitting down


these are described as 'straight'. inseam not yet hemmed to fit.

^ FWIW those look a little baggy to me. However if you hem them to have only a very minor break it should clean up the lines signifigantly. I just found this out with several pairs of slacks i thought were too baggy in the leg.

Liking what I'm hearing and seeing about the APC New Standards. $175 isn't that bad considering i really only wear 2-3 pairs of jeans and currently don't own a pair high-waisted enough to go for the tuck. Still... anyone know of a retailer that may have them on sale post-Christmas?

I'm lucky to have a flat stomach, but all but the slimmest shirts do blouse a bit in the back and on the sides requiring some quick maintenance when I stand. That said, when I wear a jacket the side and back blousing is less urgent as it's covered.

As to the rise, the button sits about 1.5 to 2 inches below my navel. This isn't exceptionally low by today's standards.

I find the 514's a good, simple style for men in their 30's or above who don't want too much street in their street attire.

Does anyone have any experience with the Levi 513? Seems they are new, the product discription says they are roomier than the 511 with a higher rise than the 513...might be just what most posters are looking for? I have both the 511 and the 514, but always wanted a slightly higher rise for shirts and because I am so damn tall.

Just bought a pair of 513's from Macy's (ballin'!) on sale at ~$40. If they fit, I'll try to remeber to post some pics.

I saw the 513 the other day...looks like a 514 with a slight taper at the bottom

The 513 sounds like it could be a good fit. Did you see any pairs with a raw finish (monochrome dark blue indigo)?

I did not - I bought them online, Ashton. The colors are different from the traditional colors I've seen in the past. The other interesting color was Super Dark, however not in my size. They are just like the 514 with a higher rise, which is sometimes needed.

To what degree have the J Brand you got stretched in the waist/thigh/seat? I tried on some of the "Kane" fit in raw and wasn't sure whether a 32 (perfect in the waist now) might ultimately stretch to be too large. Also, something struck me as odd with the fit in the seat/upper thigh and I can't quite seem to place it, did you notice anything similar?
