Favorite brand of jeans?

To compliment Suttree's thread (still getting used to the new name, bud), what is your favorite brand of jeans?



Plain 'ol Levis here. Been my favorite ever since high school. Wrangler is good too.


I may try Carhartt for my next pair just to test them out.

Levi, 505 specifically. They look great with your pant legs rolled up

Levis, 501s if I can find them, 505s usually.

Carhartts are ok. A bit stiff and I don't really care for the fit but they are great work pants. If you are not doing labor though, Levis are much more comfortable.

USA made Carhartt. I've never worn them out, they only get too disgusting looking to wear. That's quite something when you consider what work pants get subjected to.

That's been the fate of most of my Carhartt stuff (although battery acid will knock them out of commission).

501 (shrink to fit), which apparently makes me an old man.

at least that's what my fashionista friends tell me.

botto, you are old. Kids these days wouldn't know what the heck to do with a button fly.

That said, 501's are where it's at. And Toughskins from Sears. Those rock.

501s, and they have to be the dark unwashed ones. Now that they are no longer made in the USA the fabric is thinner but overall they still fit really well.

Yeah, I miss the 501 Rigid Indigo. They lasted a really long time.

You have to pay for that type of information. You see, Couchology is a very expensive religion. I'll give you the answer for $1999.99.

Nah....I'm high enough to have access to the Couchology archives. If only they would stop changing every 10 seconds, I could find the fool....er, I mean rule.

How's that working out for ya ?

Wranglers here... Levi's quality took a serious dive when they outsourced.

Carharrt rules if you actually work in your jeans.

Works pretty well actually. Last pair I bought came from target, Mossimo brand. 19.99 or some such, and fit pretty well.

You guys make me think Carhartt isn't worth trying if I'm not going to "work" in them (which I won't).

I bought two new jackets (one rainproof jacket, one coat), both Carhartt, last year and liked them a lot. That's what made me think of possibly trying the jeans.

I don't think I have 2 pairs of jeans that are the same brand. I usually buy whatever catches my eye and usually if they are on sale.

Yes, the Levis move was disappointing.

The brown duck Carharrts with double knees are pretty unbeatable for durability.

Levis. I rarely wear long pants when I'm not working so they last a long time.

Depends on how picky you are about wanting soft and cuddly cloth against your legs. And even if you are picky in that way, their regular jeans aren't too bad. It's the thick canvas pants that you'll probably want to stay away from.
