Levi’s Fit Guide | How do Levi’s Jeans Fit ?

Jul 12, 2016


As more and more fits and styles are introduced in to the market, with new names and numbers flying around, it can get a little confusing in distinguishing what it all means when trying to find your perfect pair of jeans. To offer a bit of a helping hand in your quest, we have put together this fit guide, covering 4 key styles from the most renowned brand on the market – Levi’s. We take a closer look at the Levi’s 501, 511, 520 and Line 8 Super Skinny to see how each pair fits when worn…..


Levi’s 501 Customised & Tapered Jeans 


The 501 Customised & Tapered offers a contemporary update of Levi’s most iconic style – the 501. Inspired by those who wear and rework the jeans themselves, the classic shape has been adjusted to fit the requirements of the modern consumer.  Constructed from 100% cotton denim, the 501 C&T Jeans offer a little bit more room around the waist, sitting low on the hips. There’s plenty of give around the thigh area, which is tapered down through the calf area and down to the leg opening.

While maintaining the heritage look and feel of the original 501, the 501 C&T’s shape is much more suited towards modern trends. Additional features include a button fly opening and Levi’s leather patch on the rear waistline.

Levi’s 520 Extreme Taper Fit Jeans 


The LEVI’S 520 silhouette features stretch elements within its construction to maintain the skinnier look at all times through wear. Designed to hang low on the hip with a drop crotch, the 520 model gives room around the thigh and seat for a slouchy look, tapering the look down towards the skinny leg opening. Perfect for someone with an athletic build looking for the skinny look, the shape is available with us in various washes and colours.

Levi’s Line 8 Super Skinny Jeans 


The Levi’s Line 8  Super Skinny Jeans are the tightest fitting pair of jeans available from Levi’s. Constructed from a mixture of cotton and elastane, they are designed to stretch during wear to ensure comfort and a snug fit. Perhaps best for those with slimmer builds, the Line 8 Super Skinny Jeans sit comfortably below the waist and are skinny from the thigh to the leg opening.

Levi’s Line 8 reworks classic and more contemporary styles by applying modern colour washes for a simplistic finish, with each style available at a slightly more accessible price point. Shop our full range of Levi’s Line 8 HERE


Levi’s 511 Slim Fit Jeans 


The Levi’s 511 silhouette have become one of the most popular shapes on the market in recent times. Arriving in a slim tapered fit, the jeans have a low rise and can be worn many different ways, from shorter in the leg or longer stacked against footwear. Most Levi’s 511 styles have been constructed from an elastane/cotton mix to increase mobility and still offer durability through wear. Additional features include a zip fly opening and small Levi’s patch detailing on the waistline.

We also hold the COMMUTER 511 which is a real breakthrough in denim technology and great news to any fashion conscious urban commuter’s out there, offering both style and functionality.
