What's wrong with the Levi's 501 Jeans?

Profit not Quality never goes out of style..

I guess its the profit is more in style these days!

I don't really like shopping for clothes, I find a brand I like and comfortable and tend to stick with it. Levi's was always the brand to go to. I never had to try them on - I just bought my size and it was perfect fit every time!  So I was out with the wife one day and saw Levi's 501 jeans on sale. I got so excited that I bought 2 pairs of Levi's 501 jeans - didn't even try them on as I never had when buying Levi's so I didn't expect this one to be different. 

My wife washed it and I was excited to wear them - I noticed something different with the fabric. It looks great but it feels different. It seems to be a little "thin". Levi's 501 jeans were always very comfortable to wear but I was finding this one a bit uncomfortable. So I tried the second pair, it's worse - it doesn't fit very well and its the same fucking size jeans!! 

I started thinking that this was all in my head and that I just needed to "break them in". So a few weeks passed and nothing has changed and its gotten me really irked. What the fuck?? Am I too old for a pair of 501's now? Was it just me? Is it all it my head - I mean it's Levi's 501 jeans its over 100 years old! Every pair I bought in the past was perfect!

I did a little googling and to my surprise, it was not just me! People all over are complaining about this iconic product! The symbol of quality - "Quality never goes out of sytle" my ass!! Other people have the same complaints as me! Here's the reviews from amazon

"Not as good as it used to be", "Levi's has gone downhill", "Worst pair of jeans ever bought" - I mean the list goes on and on - and its not just amazon reviews -it's reviews from Levi's very own website as well

And to make things worse, on of the belt loops break - not even a month wearing it. Fucking assholes! Way to ruin an american classic! Now I have to find another brand of Jeans!
