    Nothing like a nice pair of shrink to fit 501 or a relaxed pair of stone washed jeans. Better yet a nice pair of Wrangler boot cut.

    I was at a Neko Case concert a couple of years ago, and she stopped in the middle of the set and asked: "What's with all the guys wearing girls' jeans now?"

    I'm a Levis guy myself, both for me and other men.

    I wear Levi's because thats what I'm used to, feels and looks great.
    Glad I think that way, I already spend too much money on shirts...

    I enjoy my Levis because I refuse to buy a pair of jeans that cost as much as a 32" color television set.

    Same here.... 501s for me (or 505s on the days I don't feel like buttoning the fly).

    I'm really picky about my jeans. Never owned a pair of Levis. But I think they look good on a lot of guys.

    Whoever said designer jeans are girl jeans bes' go back out and feed the cattle, they gettin res'less.

    I like modern and urban, as long as they aren't bling-ed out.

    I think that Levis are a more practical choice over the designers ones. Some of us can't afford to spend $200 on a pair of jeans.

    I know this is heresy to some, but I normally own only a couple pairs of jeans at a time and only replace them when they wear out. It's a quick trip down to Marshalls for a pair of $19.99 Levis. They don't even need to fit right. I know what my ass looks like underneath them.

    My very point. Those were $15 jeans. Why spend more?

    I don't care if they're designer. I have spent $100 on jeans and $40 on jeans. To me its all about fit and what they do for your body, especially the butt...

    If the jeans aren't acid-washed, and do in fact hug your butt nice, I don't care if you spent $10 on 'em... I'll check your bum out.

    It's been about 20 years since I've worn Levis. I think they are still making Levis that are cringeworthy, although they have some styles that are decent. Levis do not seem to fit me well at all.

    I buy Nautica, and I put the naughty in Nautica if you needed to know. I also like Marc Ecko Jeans. My Buffalo Jeans are my favorite jeans though.

    actually I do the exact same thing...the price is right - the fit is right - I guess I don't have the time or energy to go hunting for something else...plus I know what not to wear: I just look plain stupid in "designer" anything.

    to my eyes, there is nothing more appealing/pleasing/drop-dead-sexy than a guy wearing a pair of well (not skin tight!) fitting levis 501/505's and a 3 button pull over shirt, shirt neatly tucked into said levis. icon_cool.gificon_wink.gif

    there is a thin line between advertising the overall package and flashing the goods.

    What's good for one person isn't good for another.

    I mean... honestly, the debate is a black hole. It's like debating cars... some people will drive a perfectly good $8,000 Corolla and be happy with it, and others want a car with a lot more power and style and flash and are willing to pay for it.

    I use to think Levi's were those cheap Walmart jeans until I moved to Atlanta and saw everyone wearing them. Haha I was like I thought Atlanta was fashionable then I saw a pair of them at Macy's I was like Oh...

    And now I'm addicted and want more haha

    Levi-Strauss missed the boat in the denim "game" by not getting into the fashin/premium end of the game soon enugh. They relied mailnly on the sales of their basics to drive their biz.As for me--I like style and will buy some expensive brands but was shocked to find that the best fit for me is a boot cut Gap jean!
