    I used to be into some really expensive niche jeans /Japanese denim and what a waste of money that was for me.
    I just retire to a few Levis slim tapered leg ones and Im good these days. They are clean, they fit well, and are enough quality for me and cheap price.

But the most comfortable ones I have tried and have are made by a mix of fabrics and have the texture of a sweatshirt despite clearly looking like and dressing like jeans.
    I found the 502's to be perfect.
    Regular fit, tapered leg.

    But get this: they're all "stretch fit" now. I bought a couple, dark denim, and worn in light blue. They fit great, like normal jeans.
    But all the new 502's are able to stretch, so they don't look as good wearing them. When ever you bend your knees, you can see the material stretching, and it looks like you're wearing pants for seniors with the elastic waist.

    They always gotta ruin a good thing.
    Damn.

    On the flip side, the Straight Slim Jeans at American Eagle are totally working for this 51 year-old less than flawless build. They too have flex, and man are they comfortable.

    It's like putting on jeans that feel like pajama pants, but they are still snug and sleek. A welcome respite for an average guy in middle age.

    APC jeans are great indeed. Apart from those, I wear my Nonnative jeans a lot. Also, gotta say I found Yeezy jeans shockingly good. Thought this brand was all marketing and hype.

    Clearance at hollister I picked up like 8 pairs of extreme skinny jeans they are some of my favorite fits (really molded to my leg and a bit of stretch) and for 20 bucks a pair a steal for me.

    Oh I still stop by and window shop. I like and appreciate the looks and quality but not for me anymore. I used to be heavily into English shoes buying and selling. Now I still drop by John lobb boutique every now and then to see what they have but not interested in actually owning.

    Express jeans are what I go for almost every time. They have 50% and 40% off sales quite often, plus they sent out coupons every few weeks. They fit great and they're very stylish without being obnoxious (looking at you, Buckle).

    I buy socks and underwear from H&M since their store is the closest to my home, they are OK. Everything else has such a terrible quality

    Yeah, I tried a few things from them. It's cheap for a reason. The stuff doesn't fit right and it falls apart. It's gotten worse over the years.

    I personally only own Levi's (love them) and some american eagle ones from a few years ago. I like both but will probably only be purchasing Levi's from now on

    Replay for me at the moment. Waitom forever dark in particular, quality material and no fading.

    Used to be all for the Diesel but the quality seems to have deteriorated over the years.

    For the price, can't go wrong with Nudie jeans. So many fits, fabric, washes to choose from. If you want to cough up a bit more money, I say invest in some Iron Hearts. It'll last you YEARS and make denim a bit more personal.

    If you want something more lowkey, can't really beat Levi's.

    Yesterday I just purchased a pair of True Religions from Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH for about $75. All black slim fit jeans with a little bit of stretch -- surprisingly comfortable, as they are my tightest pair of jeans now. They have the horseshoe stitching, but the thread is black. They are fairly discrete. Not sure what the consensus about True Religion is around here, but they make my legs and butt look amazing. Just need to get them hemmed.

    As long as your jeans make your legs and ass look smokin hot and you like them, that's all that counts. Glad you like skinny jeans I don't go anywhere without them.

    Never liked them in the past, but these look so good. My girlfriend has been urging me to get skinny jeans, LOL. I just hope I can be comfortable all day wearing them.

    I am glad you opened up your mind towards them. Skinny jeans do drive up the body proportions a bit so when you look at your self from a profile, you will look longer, leaner, a bit more than just straight legged jeans or regular fit. It also allows for more expression with shirts/tops in terms of fits and designs (e.g. billowy to oversized , flowery or complicated designs, etc) as you cant really do that (or is trickier) w regular fitted jeans , as the look is a bit off or 'too much going on' kind of thing.
    Also helps to be physically fit as well.
    I recommend you also look into Hollister and ASOS skinny jeans. These are of good quality and the fits are tremendous but at a very cheap cost . (the sales will put them at around 20 dollar mark usually). I shop a lot on ASOS and have purchased multiple of their jeans and some of the brands they carry. I usually go for the extreme skinny or super skinny ( I can pull these off) and cant ever go back to wearing any other type of fitted jeans. These are it for me.

    Glad you listen to your woman. If they recommend something or suggest it, it takes a man to listen and validate it. They usually know well for fit and style (in my experience).

    I am averse to buying jeans online without having previously tried them on due to fit. Most "skinny jeans" tend to not fit my legs at all because my thighs are a bit large compared to my waist due to weightlifting. The jeans that I just purchased are labeled as "slim fit" or "slim stretch" (something like that) but on me, they are pretty close to skinny jeans. Regardless, thanks for the suggestions! I am taking these to the tailor today to get hemmed.

    I really like the look of a slim fit jean, but skinny? On a guy, it just doesn't look right, IMO.
