There’s just nothing like that perfect pair of Levi’s. I’ve had Levi’s 501 denim shorts for several years and they just get better with age. One of the best places to shop for them is on eBay and I have some tips if you’re looking for a new pair. My favorite fit is the 501, I have them in white and a faded blue. If you’re looking for a new pair, use the search function to check off “new with tags” or “new without tags” and you can search by model (Levi’s 501). Over 80% of the product on eBay is new and available with the “buy it now” feature, so I always check those when searching (and I check off “free shipping” too). This is the wash I’m wearing in these photos (waveline) and the fit is pretty true to size. They stretch a bit and get more comfortable with every wear. I also have them in this color, it’s a chalky white. You can find a lot of amazing vintage  and pre-owned pairs too. The sizing can differ from new styles, so make sure to check measurements for the waist. For example this is a super cute pre-owned pair (love this wash), and you can see in the description the actual waist measurements. My other favorite Levi’s piece is my go-to denim jacket. It’s the Levi’s Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket (runs big-I have xs). It’s available in multiple sizes here, such a great wardrobe staple. I’m still on the hunt for a great pair of Levi’s jeans, let me know if you guys have a favorite style!
