With so many different types of Levi’s jeans coming out, it’s kinda difficult to keep track of all your options. The style you sported a few years ago might not fit you now, since styles and bodies change. As someone who has a very difficult time finding new jeans that look good and fit well, I know all too well the struggle you might be facing. For that reason, let’s discuss the different types of Levi’s, what makes them so special and what body types each style fits best.
Levi’s 501 Original Fit Jeans
Levi’s 501 original fit jeans are legendary in the mens urban jeans world. They can be worn by most body types and sizes as they aren’t too loose, but aren’t too tight either. They’re made of 100% cotton, have a button-fly style that’s considered timeless, sit just below the waist, and are a must-have in every man’s closet. They look especially great on men with athletic bodies, but that’s not exclusive.
Levi’s 505 Regular Fit Jeans
Another classic in the mens urban jeans world – the Levi’s 505 regular fit sits just below the waist and it’s basically a slimmer leg jean that modernises the cut without making it skinny. They feature a zip fly, and are sometimes made with elastane mixed with cotton, giving the denim some stretch. They suit any body type, and can be worn in any occasion and any season.
Levi’s 510 Super Skinny Jeans
These jeans feature a very slim and skinny cut, and are great for those who want a tight fit. The tight fit on the jean is achieved by adding stretchy spandex in the weave, ensuring they’re form-fitting. They sit below the waist and are narrow throughout the entirety of the legs. They’re ideal for men who have a smaller frame, thus anyone with a bigger body type might have trouble getting in them.
Levi’s 560 Comfort Fit Jean
Probably the most relaxed-style jean released by Levi’s. If you’re looking for maximum comfort, then you can’t go wrong with this 100% cotton, relaxed jean. These are great for people with a bigger body type who don’t feel comfortable with denim sticking to their legs. Paired with an extra-large t-shirt, you’ll get the ultimate comfort feel.
Levi’s 511 Slim Fit Jean
One of Levi’smost popular and best-selling jeans, the 511 has been the choice of millions of men in the past few years. They’re a bit loose at the top, slim at the thigh, and become skinny as they go further south. Elastane in the weave provides a bit of a stretch, which makes them great not only for those with slim bodies, but for athletic types as well.
