Since 1853, Levi's have seemingly managed to dominate the denim market with their various and world-renowned silhouettes and styles. However, in recent times, Levi's has expanded its empire far beyond the realms of just jeans and instead into a variety of quality and stylish products.
With a brand as expansive as Levi's, it's hard to pinpoint just exactly how each style and piece is going to fit. Because of this, we've gathered our team of menswear specialists to give all the tips, tricks and advice when it comes to sizing for some of Levi's most popular pieces. If you're thinking of buying some new Levi's gear, make sure to check out the guide below first!
How Does Levi's Fit?
Generally speaking, Levi's clothing will all fit pretty true to size. It's worth noting that if you prefer baggier and slightly oversized looks you may need to size up when purchasing any Levi's pieces as a lot of the pieces are more form fitting.
As usual, the denim is a slightly different case. Levi's make things simple by implementing a numbers system to describe how the jeans fit. The most popular styles are the 501® Original, 502®, 504™ Regular Straight, 510™ Skinny, 511™ Skinny, 514™ Straight and 519™ Extreme Skinny.
- It's worth familiarising yourself with the different styles of denim available from Levi's. The right pair will complement both your body type and your aesthetic.
- Levi's as a brand are very useful when it comes to providing measurements. Because of this, it's always best to know your own sizing so you can use it to match one of the various size charts available from retailers online.
- To take your own jean measurements correctly, measure from your crotch to your ankle and then around the waist also.
Levi's Jeans and Trousers Fitting
My pair of Levi's 511s are the perfect day to day piece! On top of that, they look great with a pair of New Balance for a classic dad styled fit.

How do your Levi's jeans fit?
My Levi's fit perfect. I prefer a slimmer cut, so I went with a pair of 511s and then just went for my standard size. Knowing my measurements really helped of course, so I'd advise people to get the tape measure out if they're unsure what just exactly what they are.
Are Levi's jeans comfortable?
Well, I mean just like any pair of jeans they're not the kind of thing that is nice to wear around the house, but when I'm out and about they're perfectly fine. Depending on the type of denim you go for you may also need to break them in which can take some time.
How do you style them?
I usually like to keep it simple! In summer I pair my light wash 511s with a crisp white T-Shirt and a pair of New Balance of the feet. Sometimes I'll cuff the bottom of the jeans but it all depends on which silhouette I'm rocking on foot in honesty.
Levi's Sweatshirt Sizing

How does your Levi's sweatshirt fit?
I'd describe the fit as very true to size. I don't usually worry too much if things are a little bit baggy but the sweatshirt fits just as I expected before I bought it!
Is it comfortable?
It's very comfortable. My particular sweatshirt has a brushed back fleece inner so it's super soft to the touch and very useful for keeping me warm during the cooler months. Alongside this, the cotton feels premium and seems like it's going to be durable.

Levi's T-Shirt Sizing
"My Levi's T-Shirt is one of my favourite T-Shirts in my rotation. It's very durable, and the fit is perfect also!"
Raph, Content Writer
How do Levi's T-Shirts fit?
My Levi's T-Shirts fit completely true to size, however, I usually like wearing them a bit oversized so I tend to size up. If you're looking for just a standard fit, I'd keep to your normal size!
Is it comfortable?
As far as T-Shirt comfort goes, sure. It's not anything I'm going to scream and shout about, but I'm happy with it either way!
How do you style it?
It completely depends in honesty, because a T-Shirt is so versatile I'll usually just rock it as a base layer unless it's a warm sunny day. On the rare occasion the weather is nice, I'll just grab a pair of shorts and then pair it with one of my many Jordan 1 Hi's.
Levi's - The Round Up
Overall Levi's as a brand fits very true to size. Unless you're aiming for baggier and relaxed looks we would recommend taking your regular size when it comes to T-Shirts, sweats, jackets and other pieces. For jeans, it really helps to know your measurements! Also, it's a great idea to do some research on which jeans style is going to be most flattering for your body type and aesthetic!
