Men's 502™ Jeans
LEVI’S® 502™ MEN’S TAPERED JEANS
It’s all about the tapered fit – especially now. We’ve always loved a good taper, and tapered jeans for men are more popular than ever. It’s easy to see why so many guys turn to these types of jeans; they’re the perfect middle ground between different fits, and offer both comfort and style for every day. All around, men’s tapered jeans are a win-win.
While we have a range of tapered fits, the Levi’s® 502™ Regular Taper Fit Jeans are a stand-out pick for daily styling, and our suggestion for go-to wear. It’s our most versatile tapered jean for men, designed to work with a range of body types, and not too slim in the thigh. (However, if a narrower fit is what you prefer, our selection of men’s slim tapered jeans includes the 512™ Slim Taper, which has a more tailored look and slimmer leg.)
A perfect first pair if you’re new to this fit, the Levi’s® 502™ Regular Taper eases you in. First of all, what is a taper? Think of it as an inverted triangle: wider at the top, and narrow at the bottom. Tapered jeans for men offer extra room through the seat and thigh for comfort and room to move, but instead of fitting straight to the ankle (which can result in a baggy look), the leg narrows to the ankle for a clean, crisp finish. The Levi’s® 502™ is a contemporary alternative to the straight jean you love and is just as easy to style – without compromising comfort. This cool, casual fit is a great place to start before jumping into men’s slim tapered jeans (like the 512™).
The Levi’s® 502™ comes in a range of fabrics. We make it with stretch denim for extra comfort while still maintaining that classic look; this is becoming more common for men’s slim tapered jeans, for the sake of mobility and ease. Our men’s slim tapered jeans also come in chino twill and even corduroy, so you have styles for different occasions. For premium styling and lasting quality, we’ve got tapered jeans for men (including the Levi’s® 502™) in our Made & Crafted® collection, featuring selvedge denim from the best mills in the world.
Once you’ve got your Levi’s® 502™, it’s time to try different looks. With any tapered jeans for men, we like to start with classic, laid-back ensembles. Cuff the hem and wear with sneakers for a contemporary look.
