    I guess Levi's are considered old fashioned these days, but I'll be buying my first pair of jeans in years, and I'm going back to old school basics.

    What's a good place in NYC (preferably below 14th) with a good selection where I can shop and try stuff on without being bothered by salespeople?

    NYC is a common abbreviation for 'New York City'.

    Where is it exactly? Have you shopped there?

    There must be ton of places to buy Levi's obviously, I was just looking for somewhere I could try on a few pairs in peace without salespeople lurking and offering the fake "ooh, that cut looks great on you!" schpiel I got when I tried shopping for jeans last weekend.

    well, Levis are pretty much everywhere unless you're looking for something specific like Levis Vintage Collection.

    Well, reading the posts before responding usually helps. I want someplace with a broad selection of fits, since I don't know what kind I will like best, and salespeople who will leave me be. Below 14th.

    he's right. levis are everywhere...and if you don't want to be bothered, just say so, though, personally, i like it when people try to help me. they have a lot more experience fitting others into jeans than you do fitting yourself into them, or so it seems.
    you sound a little grumpy. i recommend exercise...maybe a little yoga, maybe some distance running. hell, maybe some drugs. something to get those endorphins flowing

    Drugs are destructive.

    I'd been warned about the Streetwear Forum. [​IMG]

    if youve been warned then you have no one to blame but yourself.

    OMG Jeans Store. There's one on 14th between University and 5th Ave, and about a dozen littered through out Broadway as you walk towards and in SoHo.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I did end up in one of those small stores on Broadway in the NYU area. I tried on various sizes and styles to my hearts content with no one pressuring me and ended up with some basic 505s for $35. Can't beat that.
