Brown or gray denim

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hello everyone, i'd like to get two pairs of jeans, one brown, and the other gray. i know levi's makes their 501s in these colors but i can't find them in stores. i've found the gray ones online but haven't had any luck with the brown. if someone knows where i can find these colors i'd appreciate the help. btw, they don't have to be levi's, but i do want a regular rise and regular fit. i don't want to look like britney spears.

Yoox is showing Helmut Lang jeans in both grey and brown.

matadorpoeta, I just picked up a pair of Earl Jeans yesterday in chicago, they are a grayish color, semi-distressed. They were from Sak's. I also have a pair of Levi's Premium that are more conventional, they are gray and don't have the distressed finish (aside from a bit of wearing on the front of the jeans, and a little fraying on the bottom and near the pockets). I'd check with those companies, as well as Helmut Lang which was mentioned before.

thanks for the responses, but i bought some gray levi's 550s yesterday at the mall. i wanted the original 501s but they fit me skin tight. i'm not overweight, though my legs are a bit thick, still it was a surprise. i visited the levi's store in santa monica thinking they would have everything, but they only carried the high end stuff which is made with a low rise and a slim cut. the look seems very gay to me, or maybe just too '70s, or both. on women they're called "butt pants." i found some brown calvin klein jeans that would have worked, but that store didn't have my size. at least now i know my jeans are out there

You are supposed to buy 501's about 3 to 4 sizes larger than you would normally wear if you want a more relaxed look. Don't ask me why, but that's a rule I heard way back in high school, and it's never been that far wrong.

Maybe that's because they're designed to be a unisex jean..?

Thought I'd dig up this topic. I was in the Saks 5th Ave. here in Phoenix today and saw some brown jeans by Zegna for $140. Didn't look all that close to determine the rise or fit, but I did notice they were still cheaper than the Paper, Denim & Cloth jeans that were retailing for $160 (or somewhere around that level.) Personally, I'll stick with my Levi's and Wranglers. Bradford

The Zegna jeans I have were around $150, and I can tell you they fit quite snug. In fact, I normally wear a 30 inch waist, and the Zegna's I have are 32, but still fit pretty snug. They are definetely nice.
