I'd look into raw denim selvedge options. They're more expensive than most jeans, but they will also last longer, so it probably evens out in the end. There are some options that are lower-priced but still very good, like Gustin, Naked and Famous, and Unbranded. The latter two you can find on sale, as well. All brands will offer multiple types of fits, if you don't want it to be baggy look for ones with a lower rise. Measurements should be readily available online.
