Default Levi 501's

Anyone know where I can buy genuine Levi 501's at a reasonable price? Online if possible,

Thankyou

Try M and M direct.
Looks like limited stocks/sizes but good prices.

Have they upped their game again? Bought 501s for years but they started making them out of tissue paper and were worn through at the crotch and pockets pretty quickly. Switched to Diesel but I'd buy Levi's again if they last...

They do different fabrics with varying degrees of stretch. I expect they aren't as durable as the standard denim.

The stonewashed do seem to wear more quickly, possibly something to do with the manufacturing process?

I've had the same issue recently with the Joe Brown's jeans I've been buying, that and the fact that I've lost a bit of weight and the fit on the JB stuff doesn't work for me anymore.

Have you checked Debenhams closing down sale? They're getting a little low on some sizes though.

Costco are also worth a look if you're ever Chester way and have a card.

I've been buying Lee (not Lee Cooper, original Lee) jeans lately. Cheaper and much better quality than Levi, plus not so trendy as to be counterfeighted. Really good jeans.
