I used to buy Levi's but have recently switched to Duluth ballroom jeans and their firehose carpenter pants.

The pro's

Super comfy
Easy to squat
I've abused these jeans and no signs of wear/tear

the con's

the firehose brand pants hold every fuzzy and hair (dog mainly) so not so great to wear out where you need to be presentable.

I've worn Tommy Hilfiger jeans for about 10 years now. Usually cost around $50 and they last pretty decent.

That said I only wear them on Fridays to work and out on the weekends.

Used to get Gap jeans but they were thin like paper and would always rip at the back pocket.

About 10 years ago I switched to Express jeans and they fit me perfect, are stylish, and wear like iron. They have a little bit of stretch too so they are super comfy even on the motorcycle. Only downside is they are $80-120 a pair depending on the style. I buy super dark jeans and by the time they lighten up enough to look stupid it's about 4-5years.

Would love to get Levi's but they just don't fit me correctly. Unless somebody knows a style they have that fits guys with larger thighs but isn't a 48" fatass

Old navy is the thinnest junk denim you can buy. Levis and Lucky brand are my go to favorite jeans.

I usually get Levi's from Kohls and they last quite awhile. Next time I need work jeans I'm gonna check out Duluth seeing as everybody loves them.

There is a place gordmans by my house. I got 2 pair and they fit like shit after a wash. The wife went there and got me a pair for $20 that stretch and I love them. She is the only person that can buy me better clothes than I can get for myself. She only got me one pair though. Hopefully she can find more, but I want something more streamline in case this place closes up.
Also I took everyone's advice and ordered 2 pair of Duluth trading jeans. Free shipping and 20% off. Still $94 but if they fit like everyone else says it will be worth it. I will be sure to update when they show up. If I get a month out of them it will be worth it haha
Now I need a pair of shoes that don't shit the bed after 2-3 months. Literally every 3 months I have to buy new ones.

Nordstoms or Von Maur. I really like higher end jeans. So I scan the clearance racks every couple of months and usually find some great deals.
For evryday NFG jeans Duluth

Perry Ellis. Found a pair at TJ Maxx for $13 that were super comfortable and soft a few years ago and have stuck with them ever since. They fit me really well and they're pretty stylish. I hit up the Perry Ellis store in the Aurora outlet mall and they're usually $20-25 a pair.

If they're for work you should have gotten the fire hose pants..... Still love the jeans so you should be good to go.

I just got their 20% off order in the mail.... likely going to skip it this time around since I just blew a ton there last week. Haha

I don't change clothes for different things. I go to work in my jeans and come home and grind and weld in the same clothes

Old Navy is junk. I also had a random split once wearing a pair. Last time I ever went truly cheap.

Most of my everyday pairs are Nautica. Good fit, good wear, and good price when on sale.

I also have a few pair of 'premium' tailored jeans I wear occasionally, some Seven for all Mankind and some John Varvatos. Not cheap, but comfortable and look/ fit great.

I'm not even kidding, I put my old navy jeans to hell and back and they keep ticking. It shocks me. It doesn't syrprise me that many people have had issues though, they are cheap. I'm fortunate I have had such good luck....

I used to only wear Levis when I was on my feet non-stop 55-70 hrs a week. The quality seemed to have dropped off to the point they would only last after a dozen wear/wash cycles so I tried Wrangler, Old Navy, Gap, etc. Pure garbage, maybe 5 wear/wash cycles before a random tear or fray.

Bass Pro Shop jeans seem to hold up a little better but they don't fit right in the junk area. I'm going for the Duluth next thanks to TCG

All I wear anymore is Levi's slim straight or slims. I bought 4 pairs when you posted that crazy deal then proceeded to lose 40 pounds and now none of them really fit in the waist.

The other thing I do with jeans, that might be gross but I picked it up from some shoe forum I was on one time... I never wash them, pretty much ever. If they are visibly dirty I wash them in cold water and air dry but that's it. I wash my work pants weekly though.
