Contrary to what some believe to be the meaning of the term, anti-fit has nothing to do with the general size of jeans. Anti-fit is a way of cutting the rise of the jean in a straight line (as opposed to curved) invented by Levi’s which gives the 501 jean its recognisable and famous top block. Anti-fit cut jeans don’t follow the shape of your body. The cut is the result of Levi’s experimenting to maximise every inch of the denim fabric in the late 1890s and early 1900s. Some of the benefits of the anti-fit include greater comfort, less wear on the seat, and of course, and a good looking pair of jeans even though you wear them 2 sizes too big.
