Anybody else want to talk about their favorite pair of jeans.

These are my favourite, which I bought for £35/$57. I prefer slim-fitting jeans to baggy jeans, which is the opposite of what I preferred growing up (although I'm only in my 20s now). Doesn't get very cold here so I don't need anything thicker, and even if it's below freezing, they suffice. Not a good look if you have really skinny legs though (I cringe at how many skinny-legged males I see wearing ultra-skinny jeans.. bleh).

I am cursed (or blessed??) with the small waist broad shoulders physique also short legs. So my inseam is 28" (grrr) but I don;t like to wear my jeans low because it accentuates the shortness of my legs.
American Eagle Outfitters seem to have what I need. They run all the way down to 26" and has plenty of 28" length.
Abercrombie also the same thing; their jeans sit nicely on me (even though they don't carry 28" length), although not so much for its sister company: Hollister.
The worst offender will be True Religions. I have couple of TR jeans just because. They are 29" inseam but fit horribly on me, i.e., you don't have to unbutton my jeans to pull them down my knees LOLOLOL.

That's the type of Jeans I love as well. But for me, nothing beats my set of Calvin Klein, which I am proudly wearing right now. Lee is one of my least favorite. Their jeans are so tight and squeeze my crotch to oblivion .

I haven't worn Lee jeans in about 25 years. The crotch thing would be a deal breaker for me. You want your jeans to subtly accentuate your manhood, not crush it half to death.

Those jeans are good if you have a relatively husky/muscular build, but not if you're either fat or skinny.

Those jeans would look perfect on me. I am a bit husky. 6'0.5" and 188 lb. I love UK style jeans as well, and trust me a lot of jeans like that are sold over here in big box clothing stores. Sears is a great place to buy jeans.

I like Rag and Bone, and another brand that I can't recall now. I usually try on a bunch of them in all price ranges and get what fits.

With those jeans, you'd want to wear a short, athletic fit shirt.
