Quick Answer: Why Are Levi’S 501 So Expensive?

Are Levi’s worth the money?

Well worth it.

Levi’s is just about the best pair of jeans you can get for a decent price in my opinion.

I own so many pairs of Levi’s but I haven’t spent full price on any of them because I buy them at second hand stores almost like new.

If I had no choice to buy them full price I probably would still buy them..
