Levis 520s

Written by Mr. WellCultured, Thursday, January 19th, 2012 in Q&As

From our Levis fit guide:

What [do you think] about the 520′s (Levi’s new “tapered” jeans)?

My understanding of the new 520s is that they are essentially 511s or 510s with a larger thigh in order to give a deliberately slouchy look. I suspect this is an attempt by Levis to market their jeans to the harem pants crowd.

I don’t exactly like the idea myself, but I’ve heard of some people (especially the squats & oats 514 crowd) love the jeans because they accommodate their proportions. I’m skeptical, but open to the idea.

So tl;dr: I’d place them between 514s and 511s and recommend you try before you buy.
