    Sevens and Paige are my current fashion favorites.
    j crew and the Gap work for work.
    I need the 36" inseam! Levi's are too short in the rise. Joe's shrink too much.
    I can't do a low rise, skinny leg or cropped denim style.

    Currently only own jeans from Nudie and April 77. Hoping to get my first pair of APC jeans soon though.

    I like Kenneth Cole Reaction jeans.

    Also, skinny jeans are stupid.

    Levis for me. Especially the rare limited edition ones. Currently into 510s and 511s

    I wouldn`t say skinny jeans are stupid. It depends on your body type. They work well for some people but not so well on others. It also might not look good if someone who is especially thin wears them because they will exaggerate the thinness of the person wearing them.

    Just picked up my first pair of David Bitton - really loving the slim leg boot cut. I've got fairly developed quads/hams and these are just the right fit on me - they show my legs off nicely without being tight, and without being too wide or too narrow in the calf region. I'm going to have to see if they make a 33 length though as the 32 is right at the threshold of minimum length on me (despite usually wearing 32 length).

    I don't understand the extreme low rise of some jeans these days. Levis recently effed up their 505, dropping the rise 1/4 inch lower than the rise of a 514. When I sit, my belt ends up at my tailbone! Someday, when we look back on this era, this will be the stuff we make fun of.

    Levi's are a lot like reformulated scents. Levi's keeps the same number (501, 505, etc) but they redesign the cut from time to time, just as scents get reformulated. And then, one day, you find yourself trying on a new pair of your favorite kind of jeans, and... what the heck? They're completely different. I won't be surprised if they redesign the cut of a 501 next year.

    My holy grail jean would be very dark and very soft with a slim but not skinny cut and a rise that isn't too low. Oh, and zipper fly, not button fly. I like a button fly, but I prefer a zipper when I'm not at home. I don't like dealing with buttons at a urinal.

    I tend to be a Levi's 501 guy but I also own a pair of 7s that I love.

    I recently bought 3 pairs of Burberry Steadman slim fit jeans....I was hoping for a fit like Levi 511s, which I wear two sizes bigger than my actual waist for a slightly looser fit, and sag a little. Surprisinly enough they fit exactly how I wanted. I replaced all my favorite Levi's with Burberry Steadmans. I cant complain.

    I'm about 3 years late my bad. But yeah they are extremely good in quality and wear. Breaking them in wasn't bad at all and they lasted. The construction on them is bar none. I bought my pair of sammies from BlueinGreen Soho a few years ago. Idk if they still carry them as some stores don't renew contracts or something. And I paid retail. I'd check denim forums like SuperFuture for deals, someone is always looking to sell denim

    Hudson jeans are amazing.
