I'm gonna go with Levi's, too, because they're one of the few brands that make anything that fits me.

Designer labels don't go up to my waist size, because heaven forbid someone my size is seen wearing the designer's label.
Wrangler makes good jeans, but I don't like the way they fit me.
Lee jeans fall apart too quick.
Department store designer jeans (Polo, Hilfiger, Nautica) really aren't made well for the price they command. I can't justify spending $100+ on a pair of jeans that aren't sewn any better or made from stronger fabric than my $50 Levi's.

Volcom.

Only jeans I've ever worn. Just tight enough in all the right spots, but they don't restrict movement.

Whatever's affordable and comfortable. If Levis were still made here, I could see spending the extra money for a pair, but as it is, they're the same as anything else.

Ditto on the designers....I've had good luck with Wrangler too (fit fine). I remember when I was a kid and Wrangler jeans were crap....would fall apart in a few months. Now they are fine though.

I don't really have a go-to brand, but I have had favorite pairs of jeans. For a long time, it was a pair of DKNYs that fit perfectly and were extremely comfortable to boot. After that it was a pair of Levi's that felt perfect, then another pair of DKNYs, and currently, my favorite is a pair of Buffalo jeans I found in a thrift shop.

Oh, and I too am not a big fan of paying tons of money for designer jeans.

I'd gladly pay the $150 - $230 prices that I've seen listed for designer labels like Nudie, Good Society, and Diesel (high quality selvedge denim, good dye quality, etc.) if they'd make them in sizes other than heroin junkie, meth addict, and emo kid. Seriously, how small of a niche market appeal are these companies aiming for with a size range of 28" - 34" waist, only available in 32" inseam?

Isn't 28 -34" waist with a 32" inseam the most common size? I know I've always had a hard time finding them in stores. So I gave up on that.

Considering how fat the country is getting, I doubt it.

But maybe in the market demographic (teen/college age kids) it is.

Maybe for the kids they're marketing to, it is. I don't hang out with any tiny people.

I will rescind one of my comments, though. Good Society makes jeans in my size. I think I'm gonna order a pair when I get paid next.

Let's figure this one out... You, James, Sharon, me. How many Loc-sized riders was that pack the equivalent of? (Assuming Loc is ~130 pounds)

Yep, we're a teeny fragile bunch that's likely to get blown off the road by a good cross breeze.
