    Not at all. 514s are much lower rise.

    [​IMG] Nice find. Will probably kop tonight [​IMG]. I have 30x32's in Tumbled Rigid that I love. Well, I loved them more before the first wash on my 3Sixteens and haven't worn them since, but I'll have to find them to try on before ordering. 514's are a great cut, very versatile leg opening, and the 34 inseam sounds perfect for me.

    Agreed, I've tried on 501, 511, 512, 527, and 505 and 514 are by far my favorite cut..slim but not skinny and the leg opening is not flared but doesn't hug the ankle.

    You said you had the rigid...how much did they stretch? I usually wear a 31 in levi but im worried that with a 31 in the selvedge they will stretch to be too big. A 31 on first wear is snug and a 30 is very tight FWIW

    my tumbled rigid stretched a good amount but this is totally different denim. tumbled rigids feel like sand paper.

    i love everything about the cut except the leg opening is a fraction too big for when i'm wearing vans and causes them to drag behind my heal if i don't roll the hem up a tiny bit in the back.

    Those look good but no button fly is a deal breaker for me.

    Great cut and appears to be nice denim. This fit is great for those of us that aren't built to rock a true skinny jeans program

    Levis site says 9 5/8" front rise. Can anyone who has a pair of 514's confirm this and tell me what the back rise is? Thanks.

    I'll measure the rise on my 514s when I get home in a couple hours if no one else has posted it by then.

    I measured the 32 in waist pair I have here and get almost exactly a 9 5/8 rise on the front and a 15.5-15.75 rise on the back (assuming I'm correct to measure rise from the meeting point of the crotch seams to the top of the pants along the seam).

    I might consider a pair of these once people report back on how the denim is. I really like the legs of 514's. I like the top block as well, though I could deal with a tinier bit trimmer butt and maybe even another half inch or so on the rise to make them absolutely ideal.

    Are these expected to be sanforized or true raw?
