Levi’s® Style & Fit Guide for Men

Levi's Fashion Workwear Denim

Levi’s® Style & Fit Guide for Men  

Facing a wall of Levi’s jeans can feel a bit overwhelming. After all, there are a lot of styles and types available. At Coastal, we carry a huge selection of Levi’s for men. To help you choose the right pair for your body, work, and play, we’ve compiled a quick style and fit guide.

What’s with the Numbers?

Levi’s® developed their numbering system to correspond to the rise of the waist (low and regular), seat fit, and leg opening (tapered, straight, and boot cut). Essentially the three-digit number will tell you all about the overall fit or look of that style of jeans. Once you find a number that works for you, it’s easy to stick with that style and fit, including slim, regular, and relaxed.

How Much will Shrink-to-Fit Shrink?

When buying a pair of Levi’s 501® jeans, it’s important to pay attention to the label. Pre-washed jeans are already shrunk, but the Original Shrink-to-FitTM 501® jeans will lose 1-inch in the waist and 1-inch in the legs after three washings in hot water. If you typically wear a 32x34 pair of pants, you’ll want to buy 33x35 shrink-to-fit.

Levi’s 501®
Working Guys and Weekend Warriors

The 501® may have been around since 1873, but Levi’s® has added some variations in the lineup – and we have them at Coastal. Choose from the Original Shrink-to-FitTM in several colors or the Original Fit Stretch Straight Leg Jeans for added fabric stretch while still fitting over your boots.

  • Style and Fit: straight fit with an all-American style. 100% cotton with a button fly and 5-pocket design. Regular fit through the thigh with a straight leg opening. Shrink-to-fit jeans sit at the waist, while the others sit just below.
