Those are very dad. But when I think of more fashionable light wash, I think these 511s in blue stone wash(the icon all the way at the bottom right. Real summery and a uniform wash to not look tacky. 10/10, I've been called a dad on MFA for a fit pic with these.
Tagging /u/supermax96. If you're gonna get just one pair, go with something like the rigid dragon. Then check out light wash, or black, or whatever, if you want more.
What color 511's most closely match these, if any?
Have you seen the lived in skinnies? They look much more like 511s in terms of fit. My lived in slims fit very similarly to alpha slims, which is identical the 513 cut.
Let your eyes judge for themselves (fit looks very similarly between these):
What colour of shoes would go well with tan chino shorts ?
Also, what is a good alternative to these, considering Blue Stone is discontinued ?
Depending on your size Amazon has the Levi's for less.
