Style: 36224087 Colour:
Levi's took the classic 501 and added a tapered twist to get the CT. In a boyfriend mid-rise fit, these distressed jeans are relaxed through the hip and thigh and feature a more cropped inseam. Five-pocket style and a button fly.
Weird sizing, weird fit
I love Levi's, I have 2 current pair that are pushing 15 years old now, so I was excited to see these and the other models at Free People. I ordered these in Old Favorite. I normally prefer 28/6 in jeans, but after reading the other reviews about them running large, I ordered my normal pant size 27. That was optimistic. They are huge. huge and wide. The fabric is the stiff unstretchy midweight denim I love from Levi's, the wash is a pretty springy/summery color and the distressing isn't too over the top. But the fit is just bizarre, it's not even like a boyfriend fit, it's like they're 2-3 times oversized. I could have easily fitted into a 26. Given that it took over a week for them to even ship, I'm not going to bother with trying to exchange them, I'll wash and dry them on hot and hope they don't shrink weirdly.
DARN IT! I WANTED TO LIKE THEM BUT...
First, I originally wanted the precita wash, but my size was sold out. I could not wait for restock, so I went ahead and ordered the time gone by wash. It is an okay wash, actually. Also, the jeans are sort of lightweight. Not heavy denim, okay as well. The problem is that, yes, these fit unusually large. I normally wear a size 30 or 31 in boyfriend jeans. I read all of the reviews on this site and on other sites and decided on the size 31. Well, it is much too big for me. I think that the 30 would even be too big. I like the room in the waist, but I think after wearing them, they would fall off me. Also, the legs are very baggy. They are only tapered at the very bottom, it seems. Too bad. I was really looking forward to getting them and loving them. I also think that to fit me the way a boyfriend jean should, that I would have to get at least a size 29. Because I am not certain if they would be too small, and I live in Canada, it's simply too expensive to be shipping back and forth.
Wanted these jeans ever since I had first seen the "Precita" wash listed on the site. Teeter tottered ordering them ever since. I have the one teaspoon baggies and am pretty finicky about my jeans let alone boyfriend jeans Worked a shift in store and found a pair of the light light wash that were returned. Tried them on and went home with them. They are a 27 (I wear a 24/25) they sit low on my hips and have a lot of space, which I love they are a super hot boyfriend Jean, wear em with a big turquoise buckle and belt strap rolled with ankle boots and a beat up old moto tee with the cuffs rolledIf I can find the Precita in a 26-27 also I will be purchasing ASAP. I am obsessed. ,
LOVE THIS PRECITA!!!
I just received this today and was not sure as it looked super big in the bag until I put them on. OMG! They fit me perfectly with a bit of boyfriend but not too much. Just the way I like it. The wash and destroying is perfection. Looks just like the pics. I ordered the Precita in a size 29 because I have acquired somewhat of a tummy and I wanted to button this up without having a muffin top. I'm slim everywhere else, legs and hips. The legs and hips fits me perfectly so I think that the waist must run a little on the big side. For reference, I'm 5'2" at 115 lbs. Also, I'm amazed that I can unfold this all the way and it is not too long for me. I absolutely love, love, love this jean! I found my perfect jeans and will probably wear them out so I'll have to get another pair in a different color. Oh, and I received this super fast. Thanks F.P.!!!
I'm glad I read the reviews for this before I got my normal size, because I'm pretty slender and have no butt, so my normal size would have been wayy to loose on me. So I sized down. They fit perfectly! Not too loose, not too tight!
My hips are 94 cm, waist 65 cm My height is 170 cm I have 2 pairs of these lovely jeans (old favorite). 25 and 26 sizes. 25 the size is a little short. If you wear them in full length (not bending), they barely touch the shoe. But this is too cool! 26 sits very loose, low on the hips. 25 size is also lowered to the hips, beautifully going to fold. Love both jeans) PS: sorry for my English :)
Disappointed...huge and weird...
I ordered the cali cool in 26 because it is my true size. It was so big that even with a belt, it looks like I wear someone else's jeans. And with the solid material, it looked even bigger. I am petite so it looks awkward in every way, and not at all like a cool boyfriend fit which I generally order and love. Size down or chose another color...The great reviews seem to comment on the lighter ones.
like my old 501 back in the day
love these jeans. I wear 30 FP pants, i'm a little thick not like the models in these pics. I ordered 31 and the length fit perfect, i'm 5'4". The waist was just a little bit big for me. I get why some reviews said they run big I actually love the room in the waist. Good ole 501s cannot beat them and cannot wait to wear them again.
I like these..a lot
Purchased the Precita Wash. Size in FP is usually 25; so I am happy I sized down to a 24 as I still have plenty of space. I like the length for myself as I am only 5'2. The wash is nice and the distress details in the jeans makes the jeans look like my originals. My only gripe and its small- not a fan of the pockets on the back. They just don't match the great color or distressing on the front. Highly contemplating removing one pocket like my original 501's from back in the day. But other than that great jeans for the price.
