Default Where do you guys get your jeans from?

Serious question. Who makes a pair of jeans that can handle every day abuse and be comfortable?

I bought two pair from old navy a few months back. One of them got one use and the other got worn two times before they ripped wide open. Doing what you ask? Nothing, just getting in my car and rippppp about a foot long.

Went to kohls two weeks ago. Got a pair of urban whatever for $20-30. Worn once, washed and worn them again. Was working on the floor today at work, squat down and ripppp right in the front about 8". I still have to be at work for another 5 hours.

Have a few pair of lucky jeans. Last pair got maybe a few months and same shit, ripped. I don't wear them down to my ass, or anything stupid. I just need a good pair that can handle daily abuse of getting in awkward positons, and getting beat up from welding dust fumes etc.

The rest of my jeans are older (a few years) and still are great. Probably before companies cheaped out and went to china

Old Navy is junk.

I just buy Levis from Kohls. Last me forever.

Duluth trading if you don't mind spending the money. Will last forever and if they don't you just take them in and exchange them.

Levi's started having dumb stains and shit on them and I bailed. I can wear out and get my own jeans dirty, don't need to buy em that way.


I wear wranglers these days. Normal colors, can get them for $20 at most stores and last me a while.

Parents.

Seriously, I don't wear jeans often enough to wear them out now. It's all dress clothes or shorts.

I used to get mine from Sears.

Old Navy because I like the thinnest junk. They have tall sizes online.

I haven't bought jeans in a couple of years, but I would get them from Men's Express and only when they were on sale. I tried Old Navy jean's once and didn't care for the material. But that was over ten years ago.

What do they typically cost and what's the flex stuff?

Duluth Trading here too....

Ballroom Flex jeans.

The flex is they work some spandex into them and they have some flex and give to them.

I actually have to go to the store tomorrow because they shipped me the wrong pants, I ordered my Firehose work pants and they sent me normal ones.


These are the jeans I usually get:

I usually buy my jeans from Express. The new flex or stretch material they use is awesome. It makes them a lot more comfortable and will flex a little instead of tear.

This. The Duluth stuff is great, even if it is a bit more money.
They make a nice pair of jeans made specifically for men that don't squash your male parts. Worth every penny.

I stopped buying Levi's after their CEO made the comment that he doesn't want gun owners in his stores. Fuck him.

Duluth's never ending return and exchange policy makes up for any additional cost also.

My brother used to mock me because I went to Duluth and "its stupid expensive clothing"....

He and his wife went to the store to get a gift card for me for Christmas and as a joke his wife bought him some underwear because he always bitched about what a moron I was for spending $22 on a pair of boxer briefs....

He now wants me to tell him when the next sale is on the buck naked underwear because he wants to buy more pairs after wearing them once.

Currently wearing Duluth Firehose Work pants, Duluth long sleeve long tail shirt, and pair of buck naked underwear....

I'm like a walking billboard for them.....

Oh, and my Boar Mocs should be here this afternoon so I'll be giving those a shot as well.

Durable, comfortable, stylish, expensive, ladies love them? All of the above, some of the above, or none of the above?

My Joe's Jeans are seemingly indestructible. Single solid color. No fade in over a year and pretty much I have a single primary pair. But I sit at a cubical 9-5. Just picked up another pair at Nordstrom Rack where they're heavily discounted.

Durable? Yes.
Comfortable? Yes.
Stylish? Not really, but there's a ton of pockets for me to utilize at work.
Expensive? $55 a pair, but they go on sale frequently and free shipping is nice.
Ladies love them? Not while I'm wearing them. #foreversingle

They're just great pants for work and what I do, which is at a desk some of the day, and in the warehouse checking up on jobs some of the day. I don't mind spending a little more on clothes if they're well made. I used to go through Carhartt Carpenter jeans like they were going out of style. I have a 5 pair rotation of these pants that have been going on over a year now with no problem.
