Got a pair of 550s. Love the jeans. Fit is great for CCW and even my style. Well after a few years I go buy another pair and the motherfuckers have changed the deminsions on them. The pockets are smaller and the fit tighter. Another reason to buy multiples if you find a pair of something you really like because the designers will fuck it all up for you.

That is all.

I buy the Levi's at Target. They are not the same as 550's or 599 or whatever. I think they call them Levi Signature. I get the Relaxed fit. Good pockets and room for your CCW.

Plus they are between $20-$25.

IBTLH (in before the Levi haters)

Yup. I hate Levi's. The only pants that fit me well are the Carhartt carpenter pants. And those are getting harder to find. I think everybody must be a fat migdet also. It seems like every time I go to find pants the only size they have is a 48 inch waist and 30 inch leg.

You do realize that Levi's funds a PAC that supports gun control?
Try Wranglers. Cheaper and they fit better.

I don't buy Levis because of their antigun politics. I do have a few pair that people got me for Christmas though.

I prefer the Wrangler carpenter jeans. Nice and roomy with big pockets.

Levi's never seem to fit right. Wranglers or Carhartts for me.

I switched to wrangler 20x

The cheap Wranglers fit me better and last just as long (and a can prevent guilt about wearing stuff from an anti gun company.) That said I very rarely wear jeans, when it's not shorts its Carharts or Wrangler fishing pants.

I wear Carhartt jeans or cargo shorts/pants 99% of the time.

Finding jeans that fit well is a real chore these days, especially with so-called "vanity sizing" that is becoming prevalent in men's clothing. Vanity sizing is basically specifying a size that is Y sizes smaller than the true size, so you can say that you wear a size X when you actually wear size X+Y.

Example: my "true" waist size is somewhere between 30-32. I can get away with size 30 in most jeans (e.g. Lucky Brand) even though they are a bit loose. Enter APC, with "vanity sizing". I wear a size 28 (!!!) in APC Rescues, which is effectively sizing down FOUR whole sizes from my true waist. I haven't worn size 28 jeans since college but apparently I can do so again, at the ripe old age of 36.

It's getting to a point where you can't just order your regular size off the Internet any more; you have to go in-store to try them on (which I hate).

PS no Levi's for me, they are anti-gun.

It seems all clothing sizes are screwed up these days. The mexicans just cant seem to get it right. I have medium sized t-shirts left over from years ago that are the same size as the XL ones that I wear today and I also dont have one pair of jeans that fit the same as another.
Link Posted: 7/21/2008 8:59:26 AM EDT
Agreed. I hate shopping for clothes. I hate trying on everything even more. I'd used to grab a few of the same thing and go try one on. Have to try each and every single item on because they vary in size so much.
Link Posted: 7/21/2008 9:06:39 AM EDT
I have a pair of Levis that are LOOSE on me, bought about 5 years ago... I go to buy a new pair, same exact model and size, and they don't pass half of my tights... WTF... I know I packed a few pounds from 5 years ago, so I don't mind buying a bigger size, but making the same sizes WAY smaller is BS.

I believe that given that most of the rest of the world uses the metric system, you get some interesting sizing on stuff made overseas.

I've actually found that I can get about two to three years out of a pair of Wranglers, which is more than I can say for any pair of Levis that I ever had.

Kirkland Jeans from Costco. Can't beat them for $15ea.

Unfortunately I've started seeing it in some US-made jeans as well. I have three pairs of US-made* Lucky Jeans. All are "vintage straight fit" (different washes, tho) so it's not a matter of a different cut. Two of them I can wear without a belt, but the other one would fall down if I tried to wear them sans belt. WTF?

In addition, all three are sized 30 (waist) but they actually measure 32 in the waist. Again, WTF ...

I may try Rag & Bone jeans next ... sewn in North Carolina so mebbe those guys know how to keep a consistent cut.


*: not all Lucky's are US-made.

You are all some brutal mofos! I had to laugh too! I am actually skinnier now than I was 3 years ago though.

and yeah...I just grabbed them form the stack and was like, "Ye'up 550s 34, 32! Because I hate the mall.
