    So, after trying and being dissappointed by Nudie Ralph and bootcut Ola, I've decided to try Levi 517s as they are 1) bootcut, 2) rigid, 3) cost $20.

    The Ralph's to recap, were baggy, even sized down, with great long rises and generous thighs. The Boocut Olas were not bootcut.

    The 517s are kind of between Ralphs and Olas. They are bootcut, like the Ralph, and actually feel remarkably similar around the knees. The are slimmer than the Ralphs at the top, but not as slim as the Olas.

    The denim is certainly stiff. We'll see how it wears. I've taken photos, and will check in again in the Fall.

    I got these on Ebay just to check them out.. The fading looks great in person but a little too beat up for my tastes.
