What are Alternatives to Levis 511 jeans?

Asked by Areyounoob (3points) August 21st, 2010 from iPhone

I really want to be able to swim in the jeans, though with most skinny jeans you can.
Yes, I want to be able to find them in Canada because that is where I live. Please let them be the same price or cheaper.
I’ll be wearing them casually, but will try swimming in them.

Are we talking swim a lot, or just if your life needs saving?

I don’t understand why you want to swim in jeans? But the best way to find cheap jeans is to look on ebay or google them. I live in Australia and I love Ralphs but they are so expensive, I buy preworn (used) ones on ebay for a fraction of the price even including shipping!

Do you mean literally swim? Or, do you mean that you want the jeans to be loose?

Great question re Levis 511 and swimming. I am a lifeguard, rescue diver and shipwreck dive for fun. Levis 511, 512, 510 and 501 (STF) are all good for swimming and diving. You might want to have the 501s taper at a tailor to a 13–14 inch leg opening. Jeans will protect you from the nasties in open water – cuts, scrapes, stings. You can add a rash guard top – and you have he original Levis Diveskins! Great with dive boots and fins. Allow to dry-on for best fit. This is for intrepid swimmers and divers, people who want to hit a pool, or are on the water and need to get wet. Don’t be dissuaded by the nit wits who cry ‘you want to swim in jeans?’ Just jump in – the water is fine! Be safe.
