    Denim Jeans

    Once the staple of workers and then the symbol of rebels, denim jeans are the great equalisers. Some wear them because it is practical and durable, others in the know wear more expensive luxury jeans.

    Aficionados go for things like selvedge, raw denim, weight of the denim and talk about strange things like fade.
    The true believers often go a year without washing their jeans...or resort to things like putting them in the freezer or going swimming in the oceans...with the jeans on.

    I couldn't find a suitable thread (haha pun intended or not) about denim jeans so I started one.

    What are your favourite brands of jeans that you own and what brands would you like to own someday. Show off your faded denim and tell us how you preserve the contrasty fade lines.

    Luxury jeans = non sequitur

    Paying $200 for "luxury jeans" and then artificially aging them and not washing them for a year is utter idiocy.

    Wranglers or Levis from Walmart. Anything else is ultra douche, n'est pas?

    What's the point of a $20,000 watch when a $20 Dickies from Walmart keeps the time just fine?

    I'm a big fan of Ralph Lauren, Katherine Hamnett, and Next for jeans. The expensive ones don't get washed much because I don't wear them that often. The Next ones are the everyday wear & wash 'til they've had it, then replace them jeans.

    Which Ralph Lauren line? He has several. Some really good, some really mediocre.
    Why wouldn't you wear your good jeans all the time?

    There you go quoting out of context. Feeling the need to dress up for your watch is idiotic. Artificially aging expensive jeans is the sign of a douche. Honestly aging a real pair of jeans isn't. Either way, you're wearing old beat up jeans with a Rolex.

    The working cowboy who wears an inherited Patek is cool. The owner of a 10,000 head ranch who wears a Planet Ocean while branding cattle is cool. Their Levis are worn from real work, not pretend-aged. The ranch owner also uses his $65,000 Ford F350 King Ranch to haul horse trailers and has cow crap ground into the carpet.

    It's about real versus fake. Levis and Wranglers are real jeans. The others are as fake as a Chinese Speedmaster.

    Perhaps you should run that Daytona through a spin cycle in a washing machine filled with gravel to match your jeans.

    Re: Denim Jeans

    I have owned jeans from luxury brands in the past. When I look for denim pants, I want versatility, durability, and comfort. If my jeans have holes in them, it is due to wear. My favorite pair of jeans came from Old Navy. They are comfortable, they have been worn to church events, to cut fire wood, and to work on vehicles. The only others that have come close are Carhartt, though they were not quite as comfortable IMHO.
