I’ve been a lifelong Levi’s loyalist, but even the ones you buy directly from Levi’s are poorly made. They don’t fall apart on the first wash, but not only is the denim fabric and content inferior to past versions, but the sizing is ridiculous. I do mail order a lot, and to get 2 pair to fit my husband, had to buy 5 and return the three that either gave him severe wedgies, often front and back, or baggy in front, wedgie in back, etc. Sizing is totally unreliable from them, too. Just bought him his first pair of Lee’s straight leg (505 wearer, usually) and he first pair in his size 34/34 fit perfectly, in every way.
At one point, I wore three different sizes in Levi’s several years back, from 4-10 and all in between depending on what style and when I bought them.
