Seeking advice. Best way to buy a dozen Levis 501's?
Several years ago, I went into a JCPenney and bought half-a-dozen pairs of identical black Levis 501 jeans. I've since worn them out, I'm down to the last two, and they are getting thin in spots. It's time to buy a new set.

There has to be a more frugal way to replace them than to pay full retail, or even mall store sale prices.

So I'm soliciting advice from LJ land. What's a good way to save some money doing this? I'm willing to buy up to a dozen pairs in this transaction.

Note, I do not want off-brands, or house-brands. No going to CostCo to get Kirkland brand jeans, or to Ross Dress-For-Less or Nordsrom Rack to hunt thru designer store rejects. I want Levis, I want black, and I want 501's.

I've never tried it, but maybe you want to contact a store owner directly and negotiate a price. If I owned a store and someone came to me I would be willing to cut them a deal. Alternately you could find out how to buy them wholesale, and if they will sell a small amount such as that. I could then buy them for you. Unfortunately I have no idea where to recommend you go to find the info.

Not sure if either of those are anywhere near you, knowing neither Washington geography, or where in it you are anyhow, but you might try those. From levistrauss.com. :)

Ebay-do a search for your brand, size and color

I wish I would have had that idea when I bought my black stretch bootcut Levi's a year ago. They are slowly wearing out and I can't find them anywhere. :(

They have Levi's 517® Boot Cut Jeans at http://www.cheap-jeans.com/mens517/levis_517_005170260.html

This is the men's cut.

These are women's stretch, I think I may have found them on the website though. Thanks. :)

Not 501s...

550s! My jeans of choice for my formative years.

Riding low on the waist, with a big, fat ass and thighs. It's the Levi equivalent of the Utilikilt beergut cut.
