poor quality

These last two pair of Levis I bought are trash...backside ripped on the left pocket, my wife thought it was my fault and she mended them...a week later I bent over yo pick up a small box and I couldn't believe it...Rippppp the 8" rip aside of the right back pocket.
These are only a few weeks old...I used to deliver Levis when I worked for Roadway Express. Roadway pick them up I believe was in Mission Texas...they were heavy and very good quality.
It amazes me when companies buy out other companies and change the formula and believe folks won't notice the difference.
They try and suck ever last cent out the purchased company and then leave it in a state of disaster.
I have done some research and am going with Carhartt. I bought their work boots and like them so I figured maybe there jeans are good also. I wrote to them and explained my issues, they wrote back saying any problems with their jeans to contact them right away.
Time will tell.

Levi's uses substandard denim

Back in the good ol Days Levi's jeans were the best now they are absolute junk my favorites are the 569 jeans which you can't keep belt loops in anymore they currently rip out the knees are constantly ripping out the fabric is so thin after 6 months use that you can practically rip through it with your fingers such a shame with a name like Levi's I would buy a pair of Wranglers now before a pair of Levi's anymore I'm disgusted I've got 6 pairs of ripped out Levi's in my drawers I'm done

Unpredicable sizing

I have two pair of Levi's 510 Super Skinny Jeans that I ordered online from Macy's about five years ago. Both were made in Vietnam, but the size of one pair appears to be 29/30 even though both are marked 30/30. No big deal, though. I can still wear them both.


Well, last week I ordered two more pair, and today they arrived. What a disappointment. One pair was made in Mexico, and the other was made in Nicaragua, and neither is super skinny. The leg opening on both is a good inch wider than on the two pair from five years ago. These new ones feel baggier, too, with more of a straight leg. And the fabric feels thin and cheap.

I am sending them back, and if I ever buy Levi's again, it will be in a situation where I can try them on and check their quality.

Maybe Levi's should just file for Chapter 13. The company's production values certainly seem bankrupt.

Levi's jeans made these days are absolute garbage. What happened to the quality? I wore levi's jeans all my life and can NEVER remember a pair wearing out in 2 MONTHS. The people running levi strauss and co. these days should be held accountable, do they even have a quality control department anymore???????? THANK GOD they don't make cars. Get your act together before you're all out of a job. Mr. Strauss must be rolling in his grave!

DISGUSTED

I just bought three new pairs of Levis carpenters they didn't even make it a week and all have rip's at the tops of the back pockets. I have been in Levis for 20 years think its time for a change. I still have my old pairs that are ten years or better they have some tin spots in the knees but are still stronger then the new junk they make now.

I am happy to read that I am not the only one who has noticed the decline of Levi's products. My son likes the fit of the Docker's pants they make but the knees wear through amazingly fast. I bought a pair of 505's and was shocked at how cheap they feel. The thread count per square inch must have been changed to increase profits (since the price is still way high). I actually thought the pants had some type of stretch material in them at first but the tag said "100% cotton". It was then I realized that the weave has been altered and, as a result, the pants are thinner and the material flimsy. Why would the owners of Levi's cheapen an American classic this way? If you don't want to make them in the US, don't. But for heavens sake don't put the Levi's name on this trash. Maybe Warren Buffet could buy Levi's and save the company from itself? Someone mentioned Carhartt and I intend to give them a try for my next pair of pants. Anything would be better than the current product put out by Levi's. They are just coasting on their old reputation but that won't last forever.

I sent back 2 pair of Levis after finding out you could do that and they said they would replace one pair and the other pair was worn out do to normal wear even though they were torn in the same place. (Back pockets and crouch) Now my replacement pair is lost in limbo somewhere! FedEx told me they tried to delivery them (not to my address) and they were refused and Levis are saying they were never returned to them and that FedEx told them they were delivered to me? What a joke Levis has become over the years and i think it's time to move on to a different brand and company that cares about their costumers.

I cant believe after 30 years of Levis I cant find my size that fits anymore...I am a 30/34 and just received 3 pair for christmas, and they fall right off me, And when i do pull them up they are over my belly button, and crushing my crotch, I have never gone through this with quality Levis, but then i noticed they are made in Korea, and Lsotho, so i guess its hard to keep quality control. Sad! the 505s will never be the same I am afraid. and since they are prewash...I know from 2 years ago they WONT SHRINK. so back to Levis they will be shipped. and i may have to buy wrangler, which i hate, but may be forced into wearing. I wish Levis would fix this! or good bye levi! I also noticed over the years that the jeans material has gotten lighter, and thus holes appear in 2 years instead of 4 when i was a kid and wore them outside, now they just rip from being in the office. or sitting down, think its time to go carhartt they actually feel like the old denim levis at least and I know they last!

I have never before seen such a decline in quality in my life. out of the 30 years I have owned Levis I never thought i would see the day that the sizes dont matter any more. all my life i wore a 30/34 and now they fall right off me..not my 20 year old ones i use for dress. the new ones from christmas. and it seems they are now made in korea, or lesotho anymore so i guess quality control went flyin out the window in the name of making more money, and also after 2 years of wearing 90s or newer levis they get holes in the rear pockets just from office use, out in the yard forget about it, I was on my lawnmower and got caught on a thorn bush as i was driving by and ripped the leg with a 3 inch long tear. and I still have 20 year old dress levis in dark blue denim that look great. I think its time to go to CARHARTT. thay are like Levis when Levis came out. rugged and durable with a constant fit. Sorry Guys But if they dont get better, then its bye bye Levi!

I have worn Levi's exclusively for the last 30 years. For the last 10 years, I have worn their 569 jeans. A few weeks ago, I bought a couple of pairs to replace some jeans, buying the same 34/34 size I have been wearing. Expecting the same fit, I did not try these on; I simply popped the tags off and threw them in the wash. In the past, the fit had been so reliable that I threw the receipts away as well.

I put these jeans on and to my surprise, the rise was much lower and there was less material in the seat and crotch area. The inseam length is based on these jeans riding lower, so I look like some 50 year old wannabe "thug." These jeans are nothing like the 569s I had purchased in the past.

The quest is on for replacements. I HATE the new ones.

I haven't own my jeans long enough for them to rip out at the back pocket but I agree with the complaints that they are cheaply made! The material is extremely thin, not like the old jeans made of 100% cotton - heavy-duty cotton. I now buy all my Levi's on Ebay...yeah, they're pre-owned, but at $5 - $20 a pair, who cares? When I get them, they look and feel brand new!

I purchased six pair of Levi Strauss "SIGNATURE" jeans for my husband. All six pair within 2 weeks have started tearing at the back pocket. One pair i could MAYBE understand, but ALL six? Yesterday he bent over (he's a slender man) and the whole rear end split right down the length of the pocket. They were purchased at K-MART and they wont let you return without a receipt. Since they were Levi's i didn't anticipate having to returning them. I guess i' m just screwed out of over $100.00 So much for buying American.

I am 45 and let me simply concur with the people my age. Levi's suck now. If I had known back around 2000 that they were closing down their American manufacturing, I would have bought as many 505's as I could afford. I have a pair made in Mexico that the fabric itself, the denim, split from my crotch down my thigh while at work. All I did was step up on a ladder. The rip is about 7 inches long. Complete trash. Levi's, you were the standard, now you are a paper thin ghost. The quality of the denim is cheap and inconsistent. I still have a couple of pairs of U.S.A. made Levi's, and they are vastly superior to the fakes you put your label on now. Shame. If I could, I would start my own jean company to put some quality back out there. Despicable.
