Just got my shipment from Diamond Gusset. The last pair lasted for many years. Great pricing for made in USA jeans.
New to me. Looks good. Have you tried this one?

Nope. Haven't tried those. I get grief for jeans that look like painters pants, so I stick with regular, or relaxed fit styles. I might try one of the Backstage cuts next.

Thanks Mike. Been wearing 505s forever and I think I'll send an e-mail to see if they have something close fit wise.

Flint and Tinder has some good offerings. For work, I reach for my Travelers from Banana Republic.

Very interesting. I had no idea it all started in France.

I now have a ridiculous amount of jeans but Levi has a great sale on their website on 511 selvedge jeans so I ordered two pair. I combined that with 20% off from joining their mailing list and got each pair for $61 each. They’re the first pair of selvedge stitch jeans I’ve ever bought. I’ve never had slimmer fit jeans but all my jeans are really baggy in the legs so they should fit me well.

I wish I'd seen that, the sale is over now and they're back up to $148. 511 is a nice cut, not skinny but not dad jeans.

I was born with "bird legs", so it doesn't matter what brand. For years, I have fully tailored my jeans, slacks, and dress shirts. I can make a pair of Faded Glory jeans sexy...

Good to know. I had my concerns since it was listed as slim, but I find the pant legs to be too baggy on my 514s for anything other than jeans and if I’m really slumming it with flip flops I don’t like how the non selvedge cut looks rolled up.

I used to avoid anything labeled slim, but my wife convinced me to try them, and I've come to like a slightly slimmer cut. Still won't wear skinny jeans. Ever. I also haven't bought any non selvedge since I got my first pair of selvedge.

I just got mine Thursday and this is the first full day I’ve worn them. I was a bit surprised how snug they felt in the leg, but they’ve become comfortable very quickly. I’m not sure how I’ll like going back to my regular cut jeans for work days now that I’ve gotten used to these. I have a feeling it has a lot to do with my build. I have an active job (climbing rail cars, walking multiple miles a day) and am fairly built and 5’9” and 170 lbs. I could see this not being a good style if I gained 20 lbs.
