Pro: Nice to have a narrow jean that fits athletic thighs. Con: inconsistent sizing.
December 28, 2016
I have a love/hate relationship with the 541s. I spent a LONG time in a department store trying on all the different Levis because I can never find jeans that fit right. I'm 5'9" 175 lbs, and my legs are slightly long for my body. Skinny below the knee, thicker athletic build in the thigh and butt from a lifetime of sports. Now that it's in style to have skinny pants on the bottom, I'm usually out of luck. Anyways, I found a pair of 541s that fit great at the store. Bought those, and then went to buy more on Amazon for a better color selection. The graphite color that I got on Amazon was WAY bigger on the bottom. I also noticed inconsistencies like that in the 541s at the store.
I love the pair I got in store. They're now my go-to jeans. But the ones off Amazon were a totally different fit. I'm nervous to order any more because it's a pain to go drop off my return for shipping. Someday I might try again, but for now I'll just keep wearing the one pair that actually fits.
