    Well this was an interesting experience. I still get a laugh out of it.

    I tend to have a pretty unique way of dressing on a casual basis... Polo shirt or rugby, western belt and buckle, levi's 550 or 505 jeans.. tennis shoes or
    boots.

    So I grabbed one of the few pair of wranglers (cowboy cut) I have largely because most of my levis were in the washing machine. It was a social thing during Christmas. I had many comments about those wranglers...
    some saying they were hot, some telling me how "different" I looked with them and had a couple say, "your image is like changed".... and a couple of
    x rated comments about how I looked. I thought it was all over the top.
    I put on a different pair of jeans... thats it...


    So what is it about Wranglers? Any thoughts?

    It could be that Wranglers tend to hug the rear a little more closely than say your Levi's 550 or 505s. Or...it could be rope logo. *shrugs*

    I bought a pair awhile back at the VF outlet. They didn't have the rope logo leather patch, though. They fit a bit lower on the waist than I was used to. They are too big now, though.

    That Wrangler cut may be a better match for your build. Other guys would get better results in another brand & cut of jeans. That's typical.

    Unfortunately for me, I'm no good at predicting how jeans in the store will fit me, even if I try them on. For one thing they shrink with washings.

    And while I've found some that got very good reviews from friends, they've always been a lesser-known label that I couldn't find again in the stores. The major brands that you can always find, like from Levi & Wrangler, have never fit me especially well. So the fit of my jeans is a hit-or-miss proposition.

    I bought Wranglers a few years ago and really liked the fit. Their classic cut, and the weight, remind me of what they should remind me of: cowboys, the west, the 50s, etc.

    At about $20 from Kmart at the time, I picked up a few more, and still like that straight-leg, no-nonsense look.

    as Vespa suggests, jeans have to be tried. Not only do our bodies change shape (by design and otherwise), the jeans "fit" you wore a few years ago may have undergone some changes, as the manufacturers employ economies, shift factories overseas, etc. And of course they're trying to keep up with the market.

    I'd agree with Cowboyo's comments. They seem to be made to fit the legs and butt more so actual work can get done.

    A few years ago, I wore pair out one night, and I didn't so much as receive comments but had my butt grabbed a bunch.

    I've never had Wranglers - - I'll try them sometime. I have 501s and Polo - plus a few others. I have to make sure they fit in the thighs - some are too tight there.

    Ok My topic and well this I can tell you. Te Cowboy cut was made for cowboy's and what they have to do for a living. That being ride horses. They were cut to fit the upper leg snug and the ass too. Why? Well for those who have riden horses the snug fit allows us to stay in the saddle better, and not have a bunch of extra material to bunch up or slide around. If you spend a lot of time in the saddle last thing you want is that. Tends to rub the skin raw, cause rashes and such. Not fun.

    Also when a cowboy wear chaps it makes it a lot easier to tie them around. Extra material gets in the way here as well. nice tight fitting wranglers are the only way to go. Go to the rodeos and almost every rider there wears them.

    For guys who have butts, the tight cut helps form it nicely. those who don't have butts, well sorry it won't help give you the ever famous "Wrangler butt" that drive most nuts.

    Most men, no matter thier build will look great in wrangler cowboy cut jeans. At somewhere between $25-$35, it makes one of the best pair of jeans out there, and ALWAYS in fashion.

    That's too funny. It says a lot about those who pay a small fortune for a pair jeans and they do nothing for them as a matter of fact they make some guys rear ends look FLAT!

    Atta boy HK wear your WRANGLERS with pride! icon_wink.gif

    They are the only kind of jeans I wear. I like the way they look, both on me and on the right guy. Wrangler cowboy cut jeans were developed based on feedback from actual working cowboys, not on input from designers. These days, you can also get them in relaxed fit, various colors, etc.

    Well I wear Wrangler pretty much all the time. I get mine what is called "cold pressed" with high startch. i get them back from the cleaners and they will stand up by themselves. Put em on and the crease down the front is great. give a great crisp clean look. Add a nice highj starch shirt and I'm ready for about any function. From Rodeo to meeting royalty.

    Buddy, if you can wear out a pair in one night, you're doing some fancy footwork icon_wink.gif But maybe it was the ass-grabbers who wore them out!

    A few years ago, Wrangler apparently created a "designer" line with a $100+ price tag. Don't know if they sold or not.

    For me, it's the authentic jean look and feel (and fit) = in the city, they give a great contrast to whatever else I've got on, be it cashmere or leather or a t-shirt.

    IMO, jeans are meant to look like you're not trying. The wear should be authentic, not ripped at the factory. The fit should be comfortable and, if not flattering, at least not unflattering.

    I had a pair of Wranglers when I was 16. Either they fit me well or I had a butt then. Then we went to bell bottoms and eventually to Levi's and I lost my ass. Maybe I should try Wranglers again because Levi's just sag. Or maybe it's my ass.
