Rated 4 out of 5Â by galeway Great except for one thing
I bought these because I already had a lighter wash pair of 529's that I love. These appear to be the exact same jeans...except they stink! They smell like petroleum...that's the closest thing I can think of. I have washed them 4 times, 3 normally, once with a ton of vinegar, to try to remove the smell, but they still stink.
The original (lighter wash) pair I bought did not ever stink. I'm not sure what it is with these...but they fit great and are just as comfy. I wear them. I don't feel the smell is strong enough that anyone else would notice now that I've washed them a few times. I'm hoping with a few more it'll go away, but you shouldn't have to do that.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by imdi Too much elastin
I tried to order a pair of these jeans that were mostly cotton with as little elastin as possible, but it was still more than I had hoped for. I like good old fashion cotton jeans and not the stretchy fabric. I have bought similar jeans with the same style, 529 bootcut, but can't find the same color and each color has a different amount of stretch.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MaterializeDaydreams Great fitting jeans!
When I first tried these on, I was afraid that the waist would be a bit tight. However, now that I've worn them for a little while, they have relaxed all over into perfect comfort. The shaping is unusual in that the thighs are looser than I'm used to and the waist is smaller. These are both happy surprises, though. For my curvy figure, those are usually the problem areas for me when fitting into jeans. No matter how stretch-worn they get, they don't sag down because of that nicely fitted waist. I'm very happy to have found these jeans and I am sure I will get more. I'm not giving a 5-star rating for quality just because the fabric is a bit thinner than I would have liked.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Becmay Order 2 pairs of 529 Levi's
Last time I bought the 529 Levi's I ordered a size 8 they were a BIG for me so this time I ordered a size smaller. NOPE they are still to big. I normally wear a 6 but reordered 4's. Haven't got them yet so we will see. Levi company should really do something about their sizing.
