One thing I will say, what companies do with denim these days (no matter how nice or not) is amazing. I recently saw a light pair of light denim jeans which were light on the top, white from the crotch to the knees, and then light denim on the bottom. I wish I could find the pic but I threw it out as soon as I saw it.
Here is a link to another pretty amazing pair. (I wouldn't wear these but they are something to behold)
Just click to see the slide show, the jeans are slide #5 (I think).http://www.cargomag.com/style/content/060303stco
