About Levis 514
Classic but not exactly retro and straight but not really skinny, Levi's 514 jeans feature a slim, straight silhouette that never goes out of style. The cut feels modern because of the low rise that positions the waistband on the hips, rather than up near the belly button. The jeans are roomy but not baggy through the thigh and then cut straight down from the knee to the ankle. The leg breaks just above the ankle, depending on the height of the wearer. One of the most popular styles made by Levi Strauss, the 514 comes in a variety of washes, some more formal than others. Choose a darker wash, such as the Acre Rinse or the Rigid Lake wash, for evening and dressier events. The jeans look great with a crisp dress shirt and blazer. Alternatively, go with a lighter fade, such as Black Stone, for casual daytime wear with a band T-shirt or flannel print shirt. Levi's 514 denim comes in black, white, tan, and gray colors in addition to a variety of corduroy materials in shades that range from dark brown to olive.
