I like these but wish they were slightly more relaxed but I am pretty skinny so it might not look as noticable

100% this, a naturally beat up old pair will look a lot better than something factory-faded, and will probably cos you a fraction of the price. just make sure to go by measurements and not tagged sizes as vintage levis tend to shrink.

everlane's kind of a crappy company though (greenwashing, maybe union-busting) and it's not like their stuff is so high quality to offset that or the price if you want slim fit jeans find a pair of levis 511s, but honestly 501s are timeless and not particularly wide https://discord.com/channels/1116793467654381685/1116800072093532191/1232371177599664188 https://discord.com/channels/1116793467654381685/1116800072093532191/1227303539240472667

For levi 501's would you recommend stretch or no stretch version? Thanks

no stretch.

stretch means they won’t last as long because the elastic wears out but also something like 2% elastic isn’t going to make a major difference
