Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bluevoter Levi's 514 - excellent jeans, unreliable sizing
I decided to get rid of my loose and baggy jeans and replace them with several pairs of slimmer jeans. I'm very happy with the 514s, which are a good fit for me. If you are packing a few extra pounds around the waist or lower regions, these are not for you. Unfortunately, the sizing on these jeans is very unreliable, with *at least* a one inch variation around the waist and the seat depending on the individual pair of jeans. That variance is probably caused by slightly different patterns or loose quality control in the different countries where they are made. For me, I had to try 10 pairs of 514s to find four that fit me properly. So I don't recommend ordering these online, but rather going to a store and trying them on in person.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by hibiscusinlove1 Caraway color
I agree with the review that says the Caraway color selection which appears "orange" is not the actual color. The actual color is a nice darkish khaki. My college-age son likes this color and the 514 style very much.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by friedcatfishandgrits Great travel jean that looks more dressy
I wanted a jean that could possibly pass for chinos and these fit the bill. The 514 fit is the best style that Levi's has done in decades. The straight fit is perfect for my 6'2" 185 lb frame with a 33" inseam. I have found that Levi's makes some of their 32" labeled inseams a 33" to account for the variation and the lack of the true offering of a 33" inseam. These inseams work for me but I usually have to order extra pairs to find them.
