Pros:Good-quality, good price

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: Levi's 550 Relaxed Fit Jeans are a very comfortable and well fitting product. They last a long time and are available at a good price.


I have been wearing Levi's Jeans now for many years. For me it all started when I was a kid in the 70s, who wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything but the "big bells". Remember those? I still wear a a variety of Levi's products, and have found the Levi's Red Tab 550 Relaxed Fit Jeans to be some of my favorites.

Levi's Red Tab 550 Relaxed Fit Jeans have the classic styling that Levi's are known for. They are 100% cotton, have a zippered fly, and feature Levi's five pocket design. These straight leg Levi's jeans have a relaxed fit for extra comfort, which basically means that they don't have that super tight fit. They have a 16 1/2" leg opening and feature the traditional Levi's stitching on the rear pockets, as well a the classic Levi's tab on the right rear pocket. You can find them for about $30, or maybe even less you find them on sale.

These Levi's Red Tab 550 Relaxed Fit Jeans are available in a variety of sizes and colors. They are available in lengths from 29" to 36" and available waist sizes 29" to 44". These Levi's jeans are also available in big and tall sizes in lengths up to 38" and waist sizes up to 60". Available colors for these Levi's jeans, are black, stainless (sort of gray), khaki, as well as a variety of different shades of blue. I purchase these in either one of the blue shades, or black and have found that the colors will fade somewhat after many washings. I have also found that some sizes may be a little bit difficult to come by. For many years I wore these Levi's jeans with a 30"W x 36"L size and had problems finding them. When I did find them at a store in my size, there were usually only two or three pair on the shelf, so I would purchase them all. I have since added 2" to my waistline (not too happy about that) and have found that it is much easier for me to find these in my size. If you find that you have trouble finding your size at the store, try checking online, as you may be able to find what you need there.

The denim that these Levi's Red Tab 550 Relaxed Fit Jeans are made from seems to be pretty good material. It's been quite a while since I've worn a hole through a pair of these jeans. The stitching itself is pretty solid as well, as I haven't had any problems with it coming apart.

These jeans are meant to be worn at the waistline and are fastened with a large metal button. I did have a button pop off of these Levi's jeans once. That however probably had more to do with me and my expanded waistline trying to fit in a pair of these, rather than a defect with the product.

The front pockets on the Levi's Red Tab 550 Relaxed Fit Jeans are very easy to get your hands into, and are also deep enough so that things such as pocket change don't fall out of them when you sit down. The rear pockets easily hold a regular sized wallet. These Levi's jeans also have a very small fifth pocket on the right side of them. The pocket is so small that it's really not good for anything. It is only 2 1/2" wide by 2 1/2" deep, so its small size really limits what you can put in there.

Overall, I have found Levi's Red Tab 550 Relaxed Fit Jeans to be quite a durable product. I have a few pair that I have been wearing for years and they still fit great. The little bit of extra room provided by the relaxed fit helps to make these jeans, all the more comfortable They may be a little bit more faded than when I first purchased them, but they still look good while wearing them. I'm sure I will be wearing these for years to come.
