Product Review

 “Hello” to all!                                              gears that show confusion

1.    Title:  

501 Levi® original and tall & big original fit jeans for men.

The ‘Accessories Page’ includes jean jackets; shirts: polo shirts, boots, and sneakers.  These have name brands that do not need a Product Review; their reputation speaks for themselves.   If you do need a review of an accessory, then write me a question in the comment box below and I will address your specific issue in a timely manner.  

Of course, Levi has a fine reputation for making one of the best jeans, but there are three basic concerns that need to be evaluated.

One:  How can one spot a fake jean? 

That is important to know because even shopping at your favorite store they could also have fake jeans.  Maybe they ordered from a company that had the fake jeans.  Who Knows?  To help you spot a fake 501 jeans, this clip will help you to use certain cautions about buying the real jeans.

Two:  How does the quality of the 501 Levi original fit jean effected by all the recycling that occurs or the use of water-less jeans?   For that answer, needs to find out briefly how the 501’s are made today.

2.    Introduction:    Another important question! 

 ” Are the 501® Levi original and tall & big original fit jeans, right for you considering the price; the fit; the durability; the style?   That is: regular or tall & big.   Are you concerned about the quality since 501 Levi jeans are manufactured in other countries and are perhaps concerned with the same care that LS&Co has provided?

Here is my testimony page showing my interview with two men who wear 501® Levi jeans   Schedule will be filmed in September.  They will talk about their concerns about overseas manufacturing.   They will describe what they like about their 501® Levi® jeans.


Since I am an older woman (74) Some of you may ask why I chose the 501® Levi jeans for men as the product on my website!!

One of the reasons that may surprise you is my appreciation for the man, Levi Strauss.    If you like the man; you got to like the products whether you wear them or not.   

Check out my post,  501® jeans’ and you too will appreciate the history of the two interesting men who made the first pair of jeans on US soil.   Check out their personality and their genius who built a company that had a reputation for innovation with a great business acuity.   

Get a taste of that time period when the United States was becoming a legend in history. 

I would like to tell a short story about my experience with 501® Levi jeans.  

My parents owned a curio shop but like the man, Levi Strauss, my dad was a genius.  

Mr. Levi Strauss and my dad, W. H. Wheeler were both innovators and both had an acute business acumen or common sense.  I kind of believe they both had a sense of humor. 

They both liked classical music.   

1959, I was 16 years old when my dad, William Harry Wheeler built the 47-foot cowboy.  The big cowboy had authentic Levi® jeans.   They were mads by the Levi Strauss & Co sewing manufacturing company in Amarillo, Texas.The 47-foot cowboy

Do you see my dad on the bottom left?

The 1950s and the 1960s was a happy childhood memory; that is, to be there first for the building of the Corral Curio Shop and Motel and later to see him sew the original denim jeans on the cowboy using his own hand-made railings.  

But Levi Strauss & Co was happy to provide the jeans in 1960.  It cost my dad nothing.  

Of course, dad built a large sign giving the specifics of the cowboy that recognized Levi Strauss & Co for making the jeans!   

Later, LS&Co had an unzipped blog about the 47-foot cowboy.  For those interested in the background about Levis®, whether you are new to Levi® jeans or not, will find this short video informative and interesting.  It will also give you a reason for buying Levi® jeans.    How so??   Why, the Look!

The jeans were beautiful and perfect.   My goal is to hopefully inspire you to feel the same way, although I think you should buy jeans you are happy with even if they are not from Levi Strauss and Company.

 My memories at that time were happy and innocent.   I thank Angelica Paez for the use of her picture.  It shows almost everything my dad built and the original Levi jeans that were manufactured in Amarillo. Texas.   You can learn a lot about Angelica on your search.

The cowboy says, “I stand tall for 501 Levi jeans”.   The laborer says, “I work hard for my 501 Levi jeans”.  The model or student says, “I go all out for my 501® Levi® jeans.”

For those who are concerned about ordering online with Amazon, you can read this short story about Amazon.    It really is a great company to order any product you may want.

It tells information about the Corporate Company; the jobs that people can apply to work there.  They want people they can admire and learn from them.  The article speaks about how they started.   Their first priority is listening to customers and putting them first in their interactions. 

I hope I have given you some answers to your questions and have given you information about the 501® Levi® jeans.

                                                        An Apology
I am a woman and so I have not had the first-hand view for these jeans, but I have read a lot of reviews from customers from Amazon.
I depended on Amazon since they have a reputation for giving honest reviews in details even if negative.
I did buy a pair of men’s jeans at a thrift shop.  They had the zipper enclosure.  I found them to be well made and wondered why a customer got rid of them.
I am glad the customer sent his jeans to a thrift store rather than to throw them away to find its way to the dump grounds.
That is the idea Levi Strauss & Co has stressed about sustainability.
The article calls for excellent reading.
