With Amazon Prime Big Deal Days already more than halfway in the history books, the clock is ticking on some of the best deals of the fall. Men’s Journal has been shopping for everything from fitness equipment to men’s boots, but one deal MJ was surprised to see was on the Levi’s 501 men’s jeans, a core style. Right now, in the remaining hours of the sale, the Levi’s 501 jeans are as low as $37—54% off the original price of $80.
How does a style icon fare on the site of a mega-giant like Amazon after preceding it by nearly 120 years? Very well. The Levi’s 501 men’s jeans have earned nearly 70,000 five-star ratings with reviews from both men and women that sing its praises.

These Levi’s jeans are considered a straight fit, which means there’s very little taper down the leg. They’re designed to comfortably sit at the waist with an average amount of room in the thigh. The denim is made from 100% cotton, as it always has been. They feature an old-school button fly closure in the front and the classic Levi’s placket above the right rear pocket. They’re perfectly machine washable, but make sure to do so inside out, and sparingly, at that.
Anybody from Kurt Cobain to Barack Obama has been spotted wearing Levi’s 501 jeans. In the last few years, they’ve been surging in popularity with younger folks as well. They’re a style that continues to trace the boundaries of the ever-changing American culture, but the jeans themselves have remained largely unaltered.
Take it from the customers. Many customers, including this one, described how they tried to find different jeans but ended up returning to the style. “They are the only jeans I’ve worn since 1977,” the person said,” I did try some other styles over the years but keep coming back to 501s; they’re my thing.”
If you’re planning on buying jeans anyway, now is the time to strike with October Prime Day offering up this popular pair for likely less than any other retail store. But don’t wait too long—all the deals go away at midnight PST on October 11, 2023, and they may go back up to full price.
