PRODUCT REVIEW: Levi’s Men's 502 Regular Fit Tapered Jeans

Levi's logo

Short story: A great looking jean that has a little room to move, while still giving a stylish, slimming look. Perfect jeans for highlighting your footwear. Available in 6 different washes and colors. 

Long story: Tapered jeans have been all the rage for the last few seasons. And if you are unfamiliar with what tapered means, don’t worry, we are here to help. A tapered leg means that regardless of the fit of the jeans you are wearing (regular fit, slim fit, relaxed fit, etc.), the jeans will get narrower from the knee down to the ankle. Today we are going to focus on the Levi’s 502 Regular Fit Tapered Jeans.

Even the most traditional denim wearers have found this look versatile and easy to pair with tons of styles. Levi’s has been at the forefront of the taper movement, and the 502 Regular Fit Taper is a universal style. The jeans sit slightly below the waist and are regular fit through the seat and thigh. This will give you a little room to move without being baggy. But the tapering from the knee to the ankle give this jean a slimming look and makes them sit right at the top of your footwear. Whether it is a pair of sneakers, chukka boots, or a pair of dress-casual shoes, the taper allows you to wear your jeans with a variety of footwear types to help complete your look.

Levi's Men's 502 Relaxed Fit Tapered Jeans at Dave's New York

At Dave’s, we have seen people of all ages, all sizes, and all body styles find the 502 to be a new “everyman jean.” If you are wearing lower shoes, then you can wear the jean to its full length and have them sit at the top of your shoes. But if you would like to show a little more of your kicks, then we have seen numerous people cuff them a bit to show off their stylish hi-tops or socks.

Regardless of how you would wear them, these jeans blend modern style with a universal fit. We definitely recommend trying on a pair of 502s to see how great they will look on you.

I prefer the older Levi’s with less taper at the forefront, but these are my second favorites! Great article review “Avi Kerendian”
