I went to the levis store today and found that they have replaced most of their older 501s with newer 501s which has different tag design on the back pocket and has "501" tag stiched on the inside of the waist. I tried these on and I like the fit much better than the older fit. Because I usually wear my jeans snug, it felt like they wear completely different jean(similar to 514s). The salesperson told me that the newer one should have slightly lower rise and slightly slimmer leg. He emphasized slight but it didn't feel that way to me. Have any of you tried it?
