Anything else you do, strategic cuts or tears? Which brand(s) do you like? What will you pay for a pair you REALLY like? Are you okay w/ CERTAIN Wranglers -or- do you only buy Designer? Do you go 'happy medium' w/ Levis? -or- do you branch out and maybe buy a pair of Sevens or Buffalo Jeans? Any colors you like or especially don't like? What's the best places for deals?

Never gave two sh*ts about what brand jeans I'm wearing. If they're denim and they're comfortable and they're under $35, I'll buy it. Never understand why anyone would pay anything more than that for jeans.

Express Rocco's. Low-rise, slim fit, but bootleg. Whiskering, but no actual tears. Come in about four different colors/washes. I like heavy denim also not a paper thin jeans fan. Also at Express buy one pair and second is half price. About $75 but like I said $38 for the second. Pretty good deal. I'm just real particular about how my jeans fit. Found a style that I love. Have about 8 pairs I've bought just in case they discontinue them. Always seems to happen like that when you find something you like.........

Didn't know people actually still wore Levi's, lol......I never could anyways because they always ride up the nutsack regardless of which style or fit.

I liked the old Bullhead jeans they have a pacsun. Best fitting jeans I've ever worn and then they change everything to match the skinny jean trend. They don't even carry much in my waist size anymore, they are going after the skinny ass kids.

Paying more than $25 for a pair of jeans, or more than $40 for a pair of sneakers, is the Common Man's equivalent to paying $100 million for a statue of a strolling Ethiopian.

It's just... not... necessary.

(We're not talking obvious high-quality shoes, here, like specialty boots or something. We're talking plain old sneakers that are only high-priced because they have Nike or Adidas on their sides.)

I don't know about all that. Used to think that about a lot of Nike shoes in particular, but then got a nice pair of Shox that changed my mind about certain ones. Then again, I was actually using them for something specific. Paying a bunch of money for all those "throwback" type shoes that just supposedly look cool is another story, even Jordans seem kinda weak IMO. The styles of Adidas that I get like Sambas are cheap and last quite awhile. Jeans under $25 kinda suck in almost 100% of cases to me. A lot of those American Eagle jeans and a few others aren't very expensive and have some style. You can get some real nice jeans in the $30-50 range that will last for several years style wise. Levis really aren't any cheaper anymore in many cases, and I do agree with the comment made earlier about how they always seem cut to ride up into your junk.

Sorry but there is a difference in quality of jeans. Nudies or raw denim jeans are 150, but they will last years of you wearing them everyday. Now I would never spend that much ever but.....just sayin'


Shoes are another matter. I have no problem spending 150 on shoes. I have a few pairs or jordans that are now worth 200-350. Jordans really appreciate in value especially if they are original releases from back in his playing days. That + the quality + the looks of them are why they are so popular and so great. Heh, I'm about to buy some nike foamposites for about 200 soon.

And like the other poster said, put on a pair of nike shox. They are regularly 100+ but they are some of the most comfortable shoes I've worn.

Jordans fell off after the 17s released in 2000. 18-23 have just been average shoes. The retros they're releasing now are good but the quality is shit compared to the originals.

What are these plain old sneakers? Quality really matters unless if you using them for much of anything outside of walking around.

most comfortable pair of jeans I own are Wranglers; not cowboy cut (too tight) but regular.

they're cut for normal people.

Hopefully when the weighloss challenge is about 1/2 over I can wear them again; along with my Lucchese's.

I look for comfort and durability, and generally buy relaxed fit. I always wore Levi's to work, but they wore out in the crotch for some damn reason. I tried Arizona Jean and they lasted longer, and looked just as good. They were comfortable too. I've also bought Wrangler carpenter jeans, and they're OK.

So are you telling me that I should have kept my Jordans from when I was a little kid?? I had the white ones with red and black trim with the 23 on the side. These were so freakin' awesome.

Levi, Wrangler, or Carhardt. Relaxed fit, regular pocket or carpenter. Must be fairly loose fitting but not baggy. I'm a fairly fit guy, but my legs have always been too muscular for regular or slim cut jeans. I stock up on two or three pairs at a time when on sale at places like Feldmans for $26. I will not ever pay mor than $35 bucks for jeans, never. I have like 5 or 6 pairs of jeans that are worn just right with holes in the knees and frayed cuffs from beating around in them. They are every bit of 5 plus years old. They are selling jeans just like them new at abercrombie for $60, heh.

1. Work denim - carhart, wrangler, timberland, or other - they're usually carpenter jeans.
2. Other jeans: don't care about brand so much as comfort, fit, and price. I'll pick out the comfort and price and then try them on. The wife says yes or no from that point and she bases that on how good my package looks in them. If it looks like I'm sporting a raging codpiece her thumbs are up.

Yup. I have the ones in the top pic. Mine are retro not original though.

If you still had the ones in the 2nd pic...whooo, you'd make some money. If they're in good condition, original Infrared 6s(that's their name) can go for 350+ easy.

Original jordans have become collectors item. Me and a friend were able to buy a box full of originals from a guy who didn't know their worth for like 150 total. I got 4 shoes and he got 5. I restored them all and made them look pretty good and sold 1 pair for 140, another for 75(wasn't able to restore them as well) and the other for 150. I kept the 4th ones. The ones I sold didn't even sell as good as they should. I didn't really care about driving a hard bargain or else I would have gotten a lot more.

RE: Beavis and Butthead

ROFL

I may be in the minority here, but that show was much better than King of the Hill, and they need to bring this show back. Like on Adult Swim or something.

Fave episode is where Beavis and Butthead have a fundraiser at school where they need to sell a box of candy bars (the kind like the little league candy bars, caramel, krunch, almond, used to be). they both got 1 box each. So they were walking home and Butthead had $1 in his pocket (which is what the candy was being sold for) Butthead buys a candybar off of Beavis. So now Beavis down 1 candybar, but up $1, buys a candybar back from Butthead. And they keep doing this back n forth til all candybars are gone.

They come back to school the next day, everyone sold their entire box and brought back like $25 each. B&B came back with $1 and all candybars were gone. ROFL.

Low cut (I like to wear my jeans on my hips) relaxed fit (I have thick legs so relaxed becomes normal)... bootcut preferably. The one thing that pisses me off is it seems like EVERY pair of jeans out there is tight in the butt and crotch, but the waistband is still loose and they fall down. Its like they're made for people with the physique of two funnels melted together. Grrr

Levi 527s are my favorites by far.

But I don't pay more than 25-30 for a pair of jeans.

Many times I buy ones for 15 at Wal-Mart. They look okay. I don't have the cash to drop 40 bucks on a pair of jeans, though. I make less than 8 dollars an hour and live alone. :-)

Banana Republic Boot Fit jeans. Used to do A&F, but I'm a bit older now, can't shop there anymore. I had a pair of Express a few years back, but thought they were POS. Everytime I washed them they came out all misshapen with the pant cuffs curling up, etc. Never messed with Sevens as I've been happy with BR and haven't messed with trying anything else. Damnit SR you ask some of the weirdest damn questions! :)

Never had any issues with Express jeans other than the cuffs at the bottom curling which is easily corrected with an iron...........

This is my issue. I don't buy jeans to have to iron them. You should be able to grab a pair of jeans out of the laundry and wear them anytime without having to plan ahead with ironing your jeans.

:spock:

dude, are you drunk? I'm not sure whether you're agreeing or disagreeing with me.

to me, it has nothing to do with how much I spend on a pair of jeans. I've bought the 'cheap' levis and wranglers (some of the best fitting jeans I've owned have been a nice worn in pair of wranglers) all the way up to some of the 50 dollar a pair (on sale) (brand escapes me--cremiux?) at dillard's. I tend to be a cheap bastage, but I'll spend on quality. for me and my everyday needs, a twenty dollar pair of jeans does the job every time.

I guess I'm getting old--I think holes of any type in jeans looks trashy. just my opinion, though

Haven't worn faded jeans in about a year. It's all about the dark, form-fitting jeans now (no fading, tears, etc.). Not super-skinny, but not baggy by any means.

Got a nice pair of dark blue Calvin Klein's, a dark pair of Levi's 501s (Organic Cotton), A black pair of DKNY's, A pair of grey Express Rocco's. I paid around $50-60 dollars for each of them.

I rock some white Chuck Taylor's or some black Van's with the white soles for everyday stuff, and I dress them up with some Aldo shoes whenever I go out.

Ballin' on a budget...

I usually just wear Gap jeans that I buy from outlet. Last time I went, I got 8 pairs for about 120 bucks.

Yep. I grab about 10 pairs of whatever in a Marshalls, try them on, and leave with about 6 of those pairs.

I can't believe people pay full price for jeans. Cracks me up actually. I never pay more than $25 for a pair.

If you but them at the actual store they do.
Like i was saying, those jeans i pay $25 bucks tops for, all go for 50-80 in their respective stores.
