1.0 out of 5 stars | To stretch or not to stretch - Buyer Beware
Fit Type: Big & Tall Size: 46W x 32L Color: Lake Merrit (Waterless)
Most Levi's now come in both stretch and non-stretch variants. As you can see from the photo that is also true for the 541's. The stretch versions are clearly labeled with the word "STRETCH" in red print on the tag. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't see to appreciate this for every item. While some are marked stretch in the item description, others are not but should be. The Caraway Twill and Lake Merrit variants that I just purchased, are stretch, even though they are not labeled that way by Amazon. The Timberwolf/Cruz Twill are not stretch. I also purchased a pair of camouflage 541s from a different listing that were also not stretch. This might not be true for every person who buys these colors. It is the case that some colors and sizes come in both stretch and non-stretch. Good luck trying to get what you want from Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Pay attention to the cotton blend! They don't all fit the same!!
Fit Type: Regular Size: 34W x 30L Color: Husker - Stretch (Waterless)
I went to my local dept store, tried on 5-6 types of levi's and found that the 541 series in a 34" waist was the perfect fit! So, I went on Amazon to choose from their great selection since my local store only offered one color. I did not even notice that there were so many blends of cotton. After receiving 2 more pairs of 541 in the exact size I had just purchased, I found neither fit. I then realized the cotton blend difference and I learned that with a 98% cotton 541, I'm a 34" waist, when it's a 100% cotton, I'm a 35" waist, when it's 83% cotton, I'm a 33". My personal taste is that anything less than 98% cotton is too stretchy and not the traditional Levi's that I've worn for 40 years. That's why my daughter says I wear "Dad Jeans". This series fits great on my waist, plenty of room in the seat, and I can fit my phone/keys in my pockets with plenty of comfort.

4.0 out of 5 stars | 3 different colors review.
Fit Type: Regular Size: 35W x 36L Color: Lake Merrit
This review is for 3 different colors of the Levi's 541 Jeans. I was very excited to find the 541 fit, I had never tried them on before, and generally have a hard time finding jeans that are comfortable and look fashionable (enough). These are not skinny jeans or slim fit jeans by any means, and for people looking at 541s that is probably not a reality anyway. I am 6'5 and have larger thighs and butt due to athletics and working out my entire life. I can squeeze 511s on in a 36x36, but am left with a baggy waist and thighs that are busting through the seems. For years I wore 505s, I still like them, they are comfortable and not too baggy. But, I wanted to find a pair of jeans that was a little more tapered and fashionable to be worn with a nice shirt or sport coat if need be. I tired some higher priced brands, but its hard to find a 36 inch inseam that you aren't paying over $150 for. Then I found the 541. These jeans are great, more tapered than the 505s but enough room in the seat and thigh to be comfortable. The only downside to these and the reason for 4 stars is the lack of consistency in sizing. In 505s I wear a 34x36, and I read a few reviews that said to go a size up, so my natural thought was try 36x36. I ordered 3 colors, Lake Merrit, Midnight and Rigid Dragon. I will list the sizes and thought below, because I ended up ordering 10 pairs of jeans and returning 7. Lake Merrit - more stretch and give in the waist and thigh. True to size in 505s. 36x36 WAY big, 35x36 a little roomy, 34x36 just right. Midnight - 36x36 too big, 34x36 - very tight in the thighs, 35x36 a little roomy on the waist, but way more comfortable in the thigh. Rigid Dragon - 36x36 initially felt ok- stretched alot too big, 35x36 - ordered a few of this size because one felt tiny and short, and the other ended up being just about right. went with one of the 35x36s. Overall a great product if you have an athletic build and want a more tapered fit.

2.0 out of 5 stars | Beware Levis inconsistent fit
Fit Type: Regular Size: 32W x 36L Color: The Rich
Ordered two pairs of Levi's 541s, they were cut significantly different in the legs, so fit (or didn't) completely different. Where's the consistency, Levi's? Quality Assurance? Especially for online purchases, this is a major inconvenience, and ultimately ends up costing me time and energy to re-order what should have been more consistently produced in the first place. Where's my refund for that wasted time and effort?

4.0 out of 5 stars | Husker = heavier weight stretch
Fit Type: Regular Size: 34W x 36L Color: Husker - Stretch (Waterless)
These are great, just be aware that if you're looking for lighter-weight stretch jeans for warmer months, these ain't it. The Lake Merrit style of 541's are the lightest I've come across, at 92% Cotton/7% Polyester/1% Elastane ... perfect for warmer weather. I bought the darker/dressier Husker, at 82% Cotton/16% Polyester/2% Elastane, thinking they would be lighter material like the Lake Merrit's. Not so. I decided to keep them, as they will work nicely for Fall & Winter. I've got 4-5 pairs of 541's, and you never know how heavy / light they'll be until you try them on ... Still in need of a pair of lightweight, medium/dark wash, so please throw suggestions my way if you've got any.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great Athletic fit style for big guys!
Fit Type: Big & Tall Size: 48W x 30L Color: Lake Merrit (Waterless)
Really great pair of jeans! I am a big guy and usually buy my jeans anywhere from 50-52 in waist. I've been experimenting recently with levi's brand because they make the Athletic cut for big sizes now. And they are more form fitting and give less of that "trash baggy" look that comes with buying jeans as a big guy. I Love how they fit. You can always tell that they're big jeans- because at the end of the day, I'm still a big guy. But one interesting thing that I will note is that I decided to try to get a few sizes smaller to see if I could pull it off. I haven't lost weight or anything- I just ordered a 48 because with the Athletic cut jeans, no matter the brand, the cut makes it possible to actually wear/fit smaller sizes around your waist. Well I ordered a 48 and they fit amazing. But I dare say that I could even order a 46 to get a look where they me a tighter fit. As a guy who usually rocks 52 or 50, size 48 feels kind of loose. I like I need to tighten my belt. I know that they are a little on the expensive side. But if you can swing it, think of it as paying for quality and craftsmanship fitting. I am definitely going to order again and try for a size 46!
