    Does anyone know how the 505 fit? And how is the construction?

    I'm looking for a unbreakable pair of chinos (of sorts) that I can wear most of the jeans...

    A late reply, but I just tried these on today. I would describe the fit as a true "slim straight". By this I mean the thighs are moderately slim, and the leg flows more or less straight from there to the hem. Based on my sizing, I'd have to say a size 32" measures aprx. 32.5" in the waist, w/ ~11.75" thighs, and according to the Levi's site, they leg opening is ~8.5, which seems right. Would be awesome if the leg opening was 1/2 an inch smaller, but oh well. According to Filson sales rep, minimal waist shrinkage, but .5-.75" shrinkage in length. Very little stretch.

    As for construction they are made in the US, w/ Filson as a partner so I'd have to trust it as super solid. And the Filson guarantee is great--bring them/send them to a store and the will fix or replace. Someone can correct me if I'm misstating that.

    I really like these for a simple, chino-like pant in a 5-pocket style/cut. Great fabric that will wear well over time, and has a DWR so it will shed light rain (and spilled coffee) easily--at least for the first 20 washes....

    Anyone know if there's a code for Levi's site that would bring down the price? I think $150 is a good price overall, but I'm a cheap ass so I'm always looking for a better deal.

    Thank you for some insight.

    I figured they were up to Filson standards, but I just wanted to know about the fit. I doesn't sound like the perfect fit for me, so I'll just wait and see if I can find them for cheap.

    Are the 505s only in Filson/Levis stores or can you find them elsewhere? I'd like to grab some, but want to try them on first.

    Just wanted to let you guys know that the jackets are back up on Levi's website. They also have them in stores now.

    Also, new trucker jacket in olive.

    Did you buy the olive one? Because I bought the brown one in a large not too long ago, and it fits pretty damn medium on me; shoulders are perfect, and I don't think I'd be able to layer much under it and still move comfortably if I'd sized down.

    Check your hang tag. If it says levis on it, then its probably an older batch. Mine just has an R on it.

    I have the same feeling as well. What's the manufacturer date for yours?

    Can you explain the handtag?

    Sorry I meant the white tag on the chest pocket. The earlier batch has the word levi's on it. Mine has an R on it. I think the ones with the R are from the new batch and have the adjusted sizing.
