There’s style and there’s fit – and then there’s the ins and outs of Levi’s®.

Gear Patrol got the full lowdown on the fits and styles of men’s Levi’s® jeans courtesy of Jonathan Cheung, senior vice president of design innovation. Looking to better understand the identifiable traits of the Levi’s® 501® jean? You’ll be able to identify that arcuate as easily as that fifth pocket. The difference between shrink-to-fit and anti-fit? Jonathan clarifies the what behind both (hint – Bruce Springsteen wore one of these well on his famous “Born in the U.S.A.” album cover).
