      You want rugged??
      Levi's, Lee, Wrangler, Carhart, Lands' End, LL Bean - you know, real jeans for real men who do real living in their clothes.

      As for designer/stylish jeans, I buy mine at Marshall's, TJ Maxx, et al and look for cut and fit and weight instead of brand. Since I don't wear the same pair them everyday, spending $100+ makes no sense in my case.

      I like lucky jeans.

      I actually have had some nice american eagle jeans, not low rise, still relaxed boot cut and around $40. If you can get by all the other preppy stupid **** in the store, the jeans aren't bad at all.

    7. 03-30-2008 05:08 AM #32
      Levis, Abercrombie and Fitch?

    8. 03-30-2008 12:23 PM #33
      I don't understand how you beat up your American Eagle's. I had a pair over a year before they bit the dust (I tore the crotch on accident, not their fault), and another Ive had for 3 or 4 months, worn probably twice a week, washed every week at least once.
      My next favorite would be Levi's Slim Straight 514s. They fit me like a glove.

      501's serve me well. They fit right, I have some for working, some decent looking ones, and then some hella old ones for the beach, etc. Good price and they last forever, though that depends on how rough you treat them. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I would go with the Levi's, they last very long, look good and are priced well. And you can find them in most department stores.

      Levis 560s. The greatest jeans ever invented.

    14. 04-02-2008 08:50 PM #39
      yall do understand that 7 for all man kind, diesel, citizens and all those brands denim costs about $4/yard, right? that means you're paying like $80-200 for a name. 7 for all mankind has come out and said "yes, our jeans arent the quality they should be for the money, you're paying in part for something not everyone can afford".
      thats ****in lame. for comparison, samurai/pbj/eternal/etc. etc. denim is about $33 a yard, sometimes more, plus the consturction process by hand....
      get some levis if you want durability and style, they have every cut that the above have and they're like $39.00 when they're not on sale. if you're no wearing them every day like most of us here do, a couple pairs should last you a good solid year before they wear out.
      if you want a great pair of jeans that cost exactly what you're paying for, get some esef's. it's a start up compay, great rugged denim (21 oz if you want to be super hardcore about it), nice dress up/down looks, and it's pima and giza cottons with custom dyes and real solid quality. the fits a standard slim/straight model, size up one for a normal fit.
      esefdenim.com i think, otherwise i'd say levis, gap or old navy, everything else sucks and is too expensive for what it is.

      levi's outlet store? cause yeah, i went to one too and definitely agree with you. it was weird. i thought i could find some raw 501's there, but there was nothing. best bet for levi's probably is in department stores or interwebs

      It's name/style/ and fit.

      You might not be paying for durability/premium materials. But I'm willing to pay for the style and fit. I am sorry but run of the mill Levis dont have the same style and fit compared to Diesels/RR/G-Star etc. The only levi's I like are the Vintage fit and those pass $100dll mark.
      It's the peoples money you can try and say whatever you want to sway ppls likes. But in the end it's their money they can buy whatever they like.

      what i was speaking to is I know for a fact rock and republic jeans are nowhere near the quality they should be for the price.
      and as to my wallets: do some research, you'll see they're about half the price of any similar wallet, and they're completely handmade. I keep my prices low to make them available to more people.
      all i'm saying is this whole "best jean for the money" thing is about being an educated consumer. If you want to buy rock and republic, true religion, whatever, you're paying for a name, not for construction or even for a good, classic cut. With the japanese brands yes, to a point you're paying for a name, but you're also paying for a fine, handmade piece of clothing with pima, zimbabwe, texas cottons and years of research to get perfect indigo blends and cuts. You'll know that all the workers are able to feed their families on a decent salary, you'll be able to go meet them in their personal shops if you want and talk culture....but when it all comes down to it you'll have a pair of jeans that you could wear for years straight...every day...and they wouldn't fall apart.
      or go to macys and get some sweet new r&r's, i hear they just released an awesome new bootcut with green stitching. watev

      I get your point totally. But let me reiterate; I know I might not be paying for the best materials/quality jeans. But I am willing to pay for Name/Fit/Style.
      I am aware completely. I'm not acting out "Man vs wild" scenes and could care less if they last forever, because I dont.
      FWIW, My 2+ Yr old Diesels are holding up the same form and color since I bought them.
