Be a man. Make your own decision. Women need opinions.

Also, when the piece of clothing goes on the person it changes considerably. This is especially true for women's clothing. I don't know what the hell any of it is when it is on a rack, but it sure does look good when they put it together.

An overweight man in straight leg or slim jeans, probably not. An athletic build (not bulky) in skinny jeans, maybe. Short athletic build in baggy jeans... no. Overweight average height male in boot cut would be better...

Taking that into consideration, the only thing this forum serves to do is comment on the jeans, not how they look on you.

Unlike most $30 jeans, Levi's won't fall apart on you. I've got a couple pairs of 501s that I've had since high school (10 years, so not that long) that I've worn to death. I tossed one of 'em last year because the fabric just wore through in certain spots. That's a pair of well-made pair of jeans. The Wrangler's I bought at Wal-Mart because I just a few pairs of jeans all fell apart in six months. Not that I'm particularly easy on them, but that's pathetic. Unless I go asphalt surfing on them, there's no excuse of a pair of jeans not to last until the dye washes out of them (which then they start to show stains and usually get relegated to menial labor duty not long after).

I wouldn't pay $80 for 'em, but there's a good basic pair of jeans.

Levi's jeans in Walmart are not the same quality as those in department store. It's a different line and made with different fabrics/dyes.

I already said I liked Diesel jeans in post 36 of this thread (quoted above). They're highly fashionable and good quality. Reasonably priced as well.

Even the other one looked nice to you though. Can you reply to my other topic I just created on Buffalo Jeans.

As frugal I am. I don't normally pay high prices for Jeans but I value my clothes and I want it to last a very long time. I will go as far as even stitching the clothes if they are ripped. Some of my clothing are over 20 years old.

People who want clothing to last a long time do not buy lightweight distressed jeans that already are ripped....

I thought ripped jeans don't last a long time? The Buffalo gobe has couple stiches but not ripped.
