Guide to review: Levi's 505C Slim Fit vs Union Ave High Waisted Jeans

A Guide to compare the Levi's 505C fit and measurements to Williamsburg Garment Company’s Union Ave.

Although our fits run standard and like Levi’s, these jeans could fit a bit different on the size scale. Noting, the Levi’s front rise is only ¾” shorter but the waist opening difference is 3 1/4". Even though non-stretch denim measurements should always be larger than jeans made in stretch fabrics, we can’t say with confidence that you should wear the same size in both fits when comparing these styles. Expect a looser fit in the Levi’s 505C as is natural when comparing a non-stretch slim to a stretch skinny fit.
