These jeans are not bad, that’s why I gave them 4 stars. HOWEVER, they are NOT the ones I have spent a year searching for.
In early 2018 I bought 2 pairs of jeans from Walmart, Levi’s Signature “Modern Straight” (the obviously older pair in the photos, on the bottom or the right). I LOVE them, they are the best ever, they’re super soft but mostly retain their shape, they fit great (for reference I wear a 16 in almost everything, never an 18, I’m 5’9″ and 200 lbs) and (lo and behold) they come in a tall and they’re actually long enough.
Cue my life’s quest to find more of these blasted things. I have bought about 10 pairs of jeans thinking they were the same, and it turns out they’re just a LIIIIITTLE bit different. I was really excited about these because they even said “modern straight”, which most of the others are “modern slim” or “straight” only or whatever. But nope, no dice. Both of these are much tighter than my original two pairs, and you can see in the photos how different the size is. Now of course the older ones have been worn a lot but like I said they keep their shape, and they fit almost exactly the same when I first bought them. So maybe a 1/2″ of difference max can be accounted for by age, the rest is just a difference in manufacturing. They weren’t super tight on me, but enough to give a slight muffin top which is, of course, what we all like to avoid.
These new ones are also not near as soft and stretchy as the originals. They’re fairly stretchy, yes, but just…normal stretchy for these type of jeans.
The only thing I can figure is the “GOLD” part of the brand. I guess when you get “premium” denim it doesn’t have as much give to it, I don’t know but either way I am Le Sad.
I guess I will keep trying Walmarts around the world to see if I can ever replicate my favorite pairs of jeans…before they fully disintegrate from use…
Esta bien, quedo exacto a su talla y largo. Lo unico que no me gusto, es que ya no tiene la calidad que tenian los pantalones Levi’s, tiene mas spandex o lycra que mezclilla lo que hace que durante el dia se vaya viendo flojo o aguado
This is the second pair of the straight leg jeans I bought thru Amazon. I am giving them only 4 stars because you have to be careful about what size you order. My first pair was a M length which should have been 32 inches, after washing a couple of times they now measure 29 1/2 inches. I did not measure them when they arrived so I guess that they were only about 30/31 inches to start, which is a Short length, even though the tag inside reads 32 length. They will work rolled up for summer. So when ordering this pair I ordered the Long should be 34 inches, they measured 33 inches before washing and 32 inches after washing, which is the length that I like. Otherwise both pairs are a size 14 and fit me just right, they are a lighter material than my red tag Levis but will be great for spring and summer. I would buy them again but will be careful to get them in the Long length.
When I put these on for the first time, I loved them. They are soft, a little thin (I run warm so that’s good for me) and extremely comfy. They seemed to fit perfectly (5’2″, 150#). 5 Stars to start.
As I wore them, however, I became aware of some issues: While the legs were perfect, the waist is too big for me. I will have to wear a belt which is ok, but not perfect. Better too big than too small, right?
The next issue is surprisingly annoying. The front pockets are:
a) way too shallow. Anything you put in there may fall out. Who designed them to be non-functional? The back pockets are decently deep, but I use front pockets a lot.
b) Even worse, the front pockets don’t stay tucked in correctly. I spent a day at work tucking them back in as they kept creeping up and bunching at the top opening. That’s a fatal flaw. I don’t know it that’s an issue with the styling or just the ones I received. I assume it’s all of them and as there is no way of keeping them in position, I will not get any more. Went from 5 stars to 2 stars because of this.

Pedí el 10 Mediano que es un 30W/L32 me quedo bien de la cintura pero de las piernas si quedo algo flojo, estoy acostumbra al corte slim fit que ahí son 29 , esta cómoda la tela pero si se siente que se va a expander más con el uso, espero con la secadora reducirlo un poco , si te gusta andar un poco olgada esta bien , no se ve mal pero si se siente la diferencie entre estilos de la marca levis, no lo voy a devolver porq por mientras me sirve mientras encuentro otro estilo ya que el 712 slim fit al parecer fue descontinuado…

La calidad de la mezclilla no parece Levi’s, además de que viene muy reducido. Al final se lo regalé a mi mamá y dice que está cómodo, pero definitivamente no parece ser de la misma marca que señalan.

I rarely bother to write reviews, but I decided to try and help a sister out (ugh, jeans shopping, am I right ladies?!). I have a comfy pair of Levi’s Denizen jeans that I have loved to death, lol. I was determined to find another pair of Denizens… but no luck! Once I accepted that wasn’t happening, I searched for an acceptable replacement pair of jeans. I eventually found a review of this pair that mentioned Levi’s Denizens, so I took a chance and bought these… and woah! I can’t decide what makes me happier, the fact that the short (S) length is perfect for 5’4″ height (I can wear them with flip flops or shoes and they work fine), the color is exactly as pictured, the reasonable price, size fits as expected, or that they have stretch but the stretch isn’t overly obvious about it. For full disclosure, they are a somewhat thin material (but I live in FL, so that’s perfect for my needs) and while I don’t expect them to rip or wear out right away, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did a year from now (however, since they are reasonably priced, I’m okay with that, if so). Anyway, if you love Levi’s Denizens, looking for cute jeans that are also comfortable, are curvy (waist does not gap and hugs curves gently), and are of an average height (5’4″ for short length), then go forth and buy! I intend to buy more asap. I can’t believe I’m “saying” this, but I might actually love these more than the Denizens I was sad to replace! Happy shopping!

Pedí talla 36 y me quedo grande, en strech se debe pedir al menos una talla menos, porque se aguadan. La tela es un poco delgada para ser Levi’s, al menos los gruesos de antes. Si no tienes mucha panza pide una talla menos ?
Super comfortable. I have re-ordered and got a second pair in a slightly different tone. These are my go-to jeans. The best part of these jeans is that they are as comfortable as jeggings but they fit like jeans. By this I mean that cellulite isn’t visible. If you’ve had this problem with jeggings, I’m sure you’ll understand. It’s funny, because I don’t have cellulite problems with regular yoga pants – only with my Old Navy jeggings.
Anyhow, I’ve worn and washed these multiple times and they have kept their shape. After wearing a few hours, like other jeans, they do tend to loosen some, but not so much that I fear they’ll fall off or anything. They are super well made.
I am 5’3” and get the 10 short size.
