    All,

    What would be my best option for a high quality denim, relaxed fit, sitting at waist or just below, relaxed leg, preferably fairly heavyweight selvage fabric? I'd want a dark blue / indigo color. I also am looking for something available online.

    Thanks,

    JD

    The Levi's 501 are not what I want. They sit too low and the legs are too tight for my taste. I'm looking for something more like the 550, but higher quality.

    At the time I posted that, I wasn't aware of the "vintage" 501 cuts available. I thought LVC was simply an abbreviation for Levi's. Thanks for the input. After doing much browsing here, I'm now hesitating between a Studio d'Artisan SD-101 and one of the relaxed Samurai.

    I wear 550s - worn them for years. I like comfort in jeans, not cutting edge fashion.
