Perhaps it’s the amount of concerts I’m lucky enough to attend weekly in NYC, or perhaps it’s the fact that I’ve been listening non-stop to modern-yet-classic rock bands like Interpol and The Strokes, but I find myself reaching a lot for my Levi’s 505C Denim — fittingly enough, today’s featured #menswear pick on The Style Guide. The even better part? If you’ve been looking for a pair of denim you can wear to a rock concert for a while now, I think the 505C from Levi’s might just be the ticket, what with its roots in classic rock heritage (the original silhouette was once worn by the likes of the Ramones). Crucially, they simultaneously harness downtown cool and modern style. And since it’s the weekend, let’s crack open a cold one, kick back and find out why Levi’s has struck gold with the 505C — shall we? Before we dive in, know that you can get free shipping from Levi’s on orders of $100 or more. Now, where were we?Ahh, right — the excellent style of the Levi’s 505C. I’ve certainly put my Levi’s 505C Jeans to the test since initially reviewing them last year for The Manual. From exploring Brooklyn to heading to Grand Rapids and rocking out at Lollapalooza 2017, I’ve been more than pleased with how these classic, rock-inspired jeans have held up. Heck, I’m even wearing them this weekend as I explore Brooklyn and see my favorite band, The National. What’s the real kicker, though? You can get all that quality and classic Levi’s style in spades for under $40 on sale — sizes of the Levi’s 505C Jeans are going fast though, so you best act now. And what exactly are you getting for your hard-earned cash?
For one, you’re getting the long heritage, history and attention to detail that Levi’s packs into everything from its classic men’s denim to its accessories. The 505C is no exception, featuring a blend of domestic and imported materials — including Mount Vernon cotton denim. These stylish, classic men’s jeans are also made with one percent stretch — critical for getting around town, getting to the office and getting to that concert later. I even brought them with me on a spring trip to Pittsburgh to see Local Natives, and loved the versatility, quality and excellent fit. That’s simply what you get with Levi’s denim. And lest you think these jeans will only work at a concert or as you dress for a music festival, they’ve got plenty going for them when it comes to reliable styling potential. The Levi’s 505C, particularly in the medium-grey Marky fit as seen here, works with a navy cotton blazer and a classic Oxford shirt, (plus stylish leather boots), for casual office style that retains a bit of rugged edge. And when the weekend rolls around and the doors open at your favorite concert venue? Team classic Levi’s denim with a slim striped henley and a moto jacket — plus your favorite pair of leather boots — for undeniably cool and rugged style. Who’s ready to rock?
