There are menswear staples that are instantly recognizable and easily wearable — take it from a brand that modernized the blue jean as we know it today, Levi’s. And the pair of jeans that remain a cultural icon after decades? That’d be the Levi’s 501, a perfect pair of classic men’s denim that you can buy right now, and then wear for … heck, forever. In any season, in any weather … these are THE jeans (arguably). That is to say, in the way of men’s style essentials that can work in August, September or any other month of the year, there really aren’t many — the chambray shirt and suede chukka boots come to mind, as does a pair of stylish men’s denim like the Levi’s 501, naturally.
It can certainly be tricky to get all the details right, but that’s what the Levi’s 501 have continually brought to the table. Among those details? The iconic button fly, a timeless fit and the Dark Stonewash finish that you’ll grow to love. Looking for some well-fitting men’s denim that can rack up some miles? Bingo.
On that note, let’s talk about the fit and versatility of the Levi’s 501, shall we? Unlike some pairs of stretch denim that tend to fit more like denim leggings (yikes!), the 501 from Levi’s are cut in a straight fit, with a regular leg opening. That means the Levi’s 501 are at their best when worn with equally classic footwear — think durable high-top Converse sneakers or rugged Red Wing Heritage leather boots. That timeless design also makes ’em an easy pair of denim to wear in different seasons. The Levi’s 501 are as at home with a heather grey pocket tee and those aforementioned high-tops as they are with a grey crewneck sweater and yes, Red Wing Heritage leather boots come fall and winter. Did we mention the part about the classic fit? The rich Dark Stonewash finish? And the excellent price (just $59.50 via the Levi’s site)? Ahh, OK. Got it. Happy shopping!
