Article is a bit old but quality is quality.

YSL is supposed to have high quality jeans as well. I just don't really care to wear jeans all that much anymore. I'd rather pay $15 for some slim fit pants on clearance at Old Navy and use the extra $300 to buy something cool like an Ed Hardy or Affliction shirt.
Not to sound like I'm being a dick, I'm honestly asking; Ed Hardy and Affliction are cool? Wearing that stuff around here gets you instantly labeled a douche over here.

Agreed and any Jean's with bedazzled rear pockets went out 10 plus years ago.

This. I could never bring myself to buy a pair. Even the True Religion jeans that I owned, the embellishments on the back pockets were very minimal. I've just never been that guy. Anytime I see someone wearing Ed Hardy or Affliction anything it's basically a billboard stating "Don't talk to me it's a waste of your time."

Anyway, I'm always down to learn about new things from other people. Let's hear what brands everyone wears, maybe I'll find something new.

i haven't looked at Tom Ford stuff in a year or so, but back then he did all the crazy artisan stuff with his jeans that the Japanese did, and then proceeded to ruin it all with dad jean cuts. they also retailed for about $800 a pair.

yeah, checked out the website this morning. I didn't see anything that would justify an $800 price tag. Even if I had money to burn I couldn't justify spending that much on jeans that look just like everyone else's jeans.

True Religion are so gaudy in my opinion. I laugh when I see people wearing them. For me it's Adriano Goldschmied. Great fitting and feeling jean. It's funny how some say all jeans are the same. Seriously? You think the fit, build quality and materials is the same? Come on. Even just where they're made makes a huge difference. I remember when Arcteryx started making their jackets in China instead of Canada. The quality went out the window. So I believe they stopped that. Anyway AG jeans are excellent.

Back 6-7 years ago when I wore True Religion jeans I didn't find them quite so "look at me" like I do now. I have three pair in a drawer at home that I refuse to wear even to get dirty, that I can't give away. Even these jeans only have the horseshoe in single white thread. Some of the styles that I see people wearing now I can't wrap my mind around why or how people think they look good in them. Classic looks never fade and those who require the flash are either insecure and use their clothing as a way to make themselves feel better or legitimately have no class.

My opinion on people stating that all jeans are the same only tell themselves this to not have a complex about not understanding. This is like saying all cars are the same.

3) A pair of Wranglers will last just as long as a pair of $300 jeans. I get rid of mine every 5 years or so, simply because the styles change and it's just nice to have some fresh clothes on occasion, not because they wear out.

4) Trust me, as a man, no one should notice your clothes beyond "he looks nice". Above that, you have gone too far.

5) Don't care what other girls think as I am happily married and my wife approves of my jeans selection 100%.
Just admit it you wear dad clothes.
I don't think so, but what do I know, lol. Me in my typical weekend outfit.

That pricing is beyond absurdity.

Agreed. Don't get me wrong, I'll splurge if I want something bad enough but designers have to do more than simply put their name on it to make me want it that badly and even still then it wouldn't happen.

+1 Really like the Rowan's from COH. Also points for knowing PRPS, you are the only other person on the planet that I know of that has even heard of them.

I like some DSquared's stuff but I'm not skinny enough to wear their stuff.

It's getting harder and harder to find a pair of comfortable nice looking jeans that don't have the "look at me" shit on the back pockets without being skinny jeans.

As for the quality comment, you are exactly right! I've had some Old Navy jeans that met the looks category but the fit was not where it needs to be nor the quality. The difference between Old Navy jeans and some Japanese selvage is night and day. The guy in Nashville that makes custom jeans swears that his jeans will last you the rest of your life.





I prefer to keep the skin on my knees. I only make this comment because I remember these shits when I was a kid. I couldn't bend my legs in them.



I have these in every color. My favorite pair are mauve colored.
I'm 5'11" & 150 with a slight muscular build. Before i found 7FAM, i was not wearing jeans at all. I was wearing pretty much skater pants with wide legs. Any jean I tried back then had tapered legs which to me is ugly and doesn't sit over the shoe. I just happened to walk into the Bev Center Macy's and saw these jeans on a table. I looked at the hem and thought they were pretty wide. I grabbed a couple washes in Relaxed fit (Bootcut too narrow for my liking) and tried them on. Honestly, I was shocked how well they fit me and the cut was bang on. Bottom width 10" and knee is 9.5". I bought them right there. Guess what? After 15 years, i'm still wearing these. lol They were all made in the USA back then, too! I kept buying more and more pairs, until all I wore were these jeans. Later on as they transitioned to more tight-ass cuts, they slightly changed the Relaxed and Bootcut. They totally fucked up the cut of the Relaxed, but made the Bootcut slightly wider. Go figure that one out. So I ended up buying those instead.

I've seen a lot of designers thrown out here, but those 7FAM jeans will not be beat in the cut department.

I do not wear these or any of my regular clothes at work to preserve them. All the shit I have was hard to find and are irreplaceable. So, this is why I bought a separate set for work, which unfortunately is the newer stuff.
