The Levis 501 Jeans are no doubt a classic denim. Now a bit slimmer, their quality and fit are way beyond the price paid for them.
You can either go with the Original or Shrink to fit version. Either way, wearing them makes one feel rebellious in some way, from Marlon Brando to Steve McQueen.
I do recommend getting the raw denim version and make your own version of "distressed jeans".
