Great fitting jeans especially if you are tired of mainstream high street tapered/slim fit jeans.

My first ever pair of 501's, always wore Wrangler as a youngster but now aged 55 I decided to try out some new jeans. Well the High Street outlets were awful with nobody stocking the type of fit and style that I loved in the 80's, all the jeans I tried on were slim fit and/or tapered leg, ok I am not a slim chap but some of them I could barely get my feet through never mind past my knees !
Every shop I went into stocked the same style and fit of jeans, they all seemed to be very thin material too with a horrible leg fit not suitable for a man of my age.
My son told me to try Amazon for a pair of 501's and bingo he was right. The style, the shape, the quality of material (very thick, unlike the high street brands I tried) and the size (waist 42 leg 32 - believe it or not I am not fat merely tall at 6ft 2inch) was perfect. These are genuine items,amazing quality and a very good mid/late 80,s style, not too loose not too slim fit, you know what I mean if you lived through those times.
I have recently been watching some DVD's of both The Smiths, Tears For Fears and Simple Minds and their jeans must have been 501's , well that is what mine are like, stone washed, really thick material with button fly - sure, not the easiest of ways especially if in a rush to go to the loo but they will ease off in time.
These are genuine Levi 501 jeans, bought directly from Amazon, not third party sellers ( please note these may also be genuine items but from looking at the various photos posted up of the "leather" rear patch, there is one big difference that shows them to be fakes). So buy in confidence from Amazon and wear a piece of history.
