If you’re a regular reader of the Strategist, you know our editors have very strong feelings about their jeans. But if there’s one thing we all agree on, it’s that nothing fits quite like a pair of classic Levi’s, and 501s are about as classic as it gets. The cut is neither super-high-waisted nor low-rise. The legs are slim without being leggingslike, and the hem hits at the ankles, so they’re not comically cropped. And unlike vintage Levi’s, this particular pair of 501s is made with stretch denim, meaning you’ll be able to comfortably sit in them for hours and never worry about them digging into your waist. Best of all, these Levi’s jeans are on sale at Shopbop — part of its “surprise sale,” which is still going strong — for just $90, or 30 percent off the list price.
