    There is a massive thread on these called Levis 514, raw that is on the front page. I definetly would look there.

    BTW $21 dollars is a steal, I paid $32 for mine at Macy's

    I don't know what you guys think of it, but I would say that the quality of Levi's jeans really got lower for some years.
    I buy them pretty dark and not too used, but the get destroyed within 2-3 months.

    Keep me posted

    Back in the early 90s the quality of Levi's dropped drastically as the company went into decline. Sales reps used to demonstrate the quality with a "back pocket test" where they try to rip the pocket off. For decades, they were indestructible, but in the 90s the pockets came off clean without much effort.

    Honestly, though, I am not brave enough to try this on my new Levi's Reds...
