Levi's have turned into complete garbage and I absofugginglutely refuse to patronize their bullsh*t pants anymore.
I spent $120 on a pair of Lucky jeans today, mostly because I wanted to slay the little JAP that did EVERYTHING for me while I was in the store, except blow me in the fitting room. I honestly think I'm going to go back just to get her phone number
I'm not too proud to admit I get the cheap-ass Wrangler carpenter jeans from Walmart...they are roomy, comfortable, and fairly durable for the work I do (shipping). Plus the little pocket along the outer right thigh is perfect for my phone.
They have the Internet on computers now?
I have two pairs of Levis that I like, and as previously observed, they're supposedly identical sizes but inches apart in actual inseam. I'm just used to that these days, though.
I'm not really beholden to any particular brand of anything. I buy what fits and looks halfway decent until they change enough that those are no longer true, then I move on.

Carhartt. For work not much compares, and they actually have some really nice, very stylish higher end models these days. Tons of different cuts so as to fit anyone, and relatively cheap too. They use some of the heaviest denim I've found.
I actually just bought a couple pairs of 1969 gap jeans also... while they are a little bit more expensive than I like, they fit very well and look good. The quality seems pretty damn good.
When wally world started selling Levi, sh!t went down hill fast.... I was never much of a Levi fan, but they are total junk now.
I wear Prana Axiom jeans mostly, and they're ****ing amazing - expensive, yes, but they've got a bit of stretch, and I've worn them climbing, hiking, traveling, doing trail work....they're bomber as hell. But they're also cut for a fairly lean guy.
And Carhartts are awesome. Especially their duck canvas work pants. Those things wear like iron! I also have a pair of their flannel-lined jeans that are great for working outside in the cold. And when it's really cold, I have a pair of the insulated bibs and an insulated 'car coat'. For slightly warmer days, I've got an 'active' jacket that I've had for years. That thing takes a beating and just keeps going.
If Wranglers from Wal-Mart are better then they're better. That's the nature of buying retail today. Everyone has cut their production costs to the bone so you never know when the "budget" product might end up exceeding the "premium" one in quality.
Thankfully I probably won't need more jeans for a long time.

I always blow the seams out of old navy jeans. They are just super cheap to me....
Something I think we can all agree on: do not, for any****inreasonwhatsoever, buy jeans with tapered legs, stonewashed jeans, or jeans with pleats. I see a man that wears jeans with any of those attributes and I see a man who never learned to dress himself.
Casual dress is a minefield for those not well versed in it, and I am not. If I am not in a suit, I stick with khakis, and polo or pilot shirts. If the weather is really awful, I will break out the seersuck and white bucks.
I never had jeans until I went to college and girls started buying them for me, and I always feel as if I am in a costume when I wear them. Trying to teach me all the new rules about casual dress would be like teaching a WWII veteran how to use a VCR.
Straigtlegs are straight from the knee down, not thigh. Thighs are normally cut a little fuller. Boot cut jeans flare a little bit, a hybrid bell bottom. Jeans that are cut the same from the thigh down to the ankle just look stupid.

CARHARTT or http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/m...ose-pants.aspxDULUTH trading company for heavy duty, real working man's cut and materials. I've switched to khaki material cargos for everything else.
I'm only fighting with @Pace_Foods in order to gain the attention of @danicamckellar. It's like a real mellow John Hinckley situation.
Since everyone has moved their production overseas and cut costs to the bone, you never know any more if more money = better quality, so just find the jeans that fit best and don't worry about what brand they happen to be. Chances are the cheapo jeans will last just as long as the 'premium' jeans.
OP, I've been meaning to try a pair of these:
Made from the same material they make fire hoses with. Have heard from a couple friends that have them that they are damn near indestructible, and once broken in are even more comfortable than their favorite worn-in jeans.
