Rated 5 out of 5 by SwimHard2 Levis 517 Red Tab Swim!
I just completed my annual 2-day re-cert for rescue diving. This is a survival course - we were required to wear jeans and boots as you would in the wild. The rules said "clean " jeans and boots. So, I wore a new pair of 517s and new military grade desert hiking boots. Our drills included kayak, DEEP dives and rescues - 1 day in an Olympic pool and the second day in the Pacific Ocean. The ocean part included scuba gear and dives to 80 ft. for search and rescue.
I wore Levis 517 because they fit tight and slim like the original 512s above the knee and then are boot cut to accommodate your boots - and in my case, fit long and lean for efficiency in the water. Trust me - 2 days in the water and Red Tab 517s fit like a second skin, draw up for athletic support, tighten for muscle support on your thighs and become part of you. And, if my 517s can handle this, they can take anything! It was hot in So. Cal., so I let them dry-on for the flight back to Austin. Great fit - wet or dry.
Way to go, LEVIS and SHEPLERS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrFloodedSilverado Levi's 517 stretch - My new favorite jeans
Went to Sheplers last week looking for Wranglers 936 slim fits. Tried them on and they just didn't work with my body, too high in the waist.
On a whim I tried on the Levi's 517 stretch, 34X36 jeans and couldn't believe my eyes as well as the way they fit.
The waist came up to just the right height and the length was just a little long which is good for boots.
The best part was the fit and the stretch. I can wear these tight, just like I like them and still bend and stretch with no problems what so ever. Im not kidding, these are the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn and I'm a guy who likes them tight, just like how cowboys used to wear them.
I also really like the way the waist fits. From the hips up to the top of the waist band the fit is straight up, not as tall but kind of like Wranglers and not like 501s which cut off the circulation at the belly.
After washing they became a little different shade of blue and look good. I took them to a tailor and trimmed up the boot cut so its not so big and that cost was minimal.
They truly are my new favorites! I just ordered two more pair yesterday.

My son was very please that you carry the 501 shrink to fit pants to fit him because they have been hard to fine.

Very good fit but inseam is five inches too long. Have to hem them and this costs more added to the price.

Exactly what I ordered but a long shipping time. I have had good results with Sheplers in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by outasight Levis always comes thru.
My husband will only wear Levis. From time to time there may be a sale on "other" brand jeans that I've bought, but I always take them back because he won't wear them. He's a tall, lanky guy, and the 517's are the very best fit for him, although he has a pair of 417's that
he wears. But 517's are the best fit and that's what I buy for my man!

Have had a hard time finding these "original" rugged jeans. They last forever and hold their fit. Hate those new flimsy pre-washed.
