What are the best jeans under $100? - Page 3

post #31 of 39
Re; Uniqlo dry selv.....They run true to size, my 32 are 32" at waist as for shrinking, wouldnt know since I havent washed them, but from what I've heard they don't shrink except maybe the length an inch. As far as stretching, I think it depends on the wearer's style...if you buy them 2 sizes too small then yea they're gonna stretch 2" to accomodate you. But having gotten mine at correct size they havent stretched much at all

how is the fit in terms of the 501? I have larger thighs due to weighlifting and cant fit in slim jeans.

This might not be a popular opinion but I'm really unimpressed by mid range jeans. I'm a fan of low end jeans, Levis being the top of that list price wise, but really I'm talking about Rustler, Wrangler and the like. Basic jeans, reasonable quality and stinking cheap. You get what you pay for. In the higher end (I've handled a few but don't own any so it's ok if you think I'm full of shit) you have a lot of jeans that were made for quality first and pricing second. They use excellent denim, excellent production and if you look around you're bound to find a fit that fits you. This is good stuff and I think is worth paying for, though I haven't yet. In the middle the denim quailty isn't really much better than the cheap jeans, construction is usually about the same and you end up paying more for a bit of design that usually isn't that good or washes that generally aren't that good either. It seems like you're spending extra money on mediocre effort which it think is a waste. If I want to pay more than the basic amount it costs for someone to stitch mass produced denim into jeans then I'm going to pay for quality work. Real quality work. So I don't like the midrange in denim, but I'm like that with a lot of stuff. Shoes, suits (especially suits) tools, a bunch of things. Either buy on price or buy on quality but don't buy on how much you can get for x amount of money which is somewhere in between.

It's real similar to 501. They definitely aren't slim jeans, probably the roomiest pair I own, but then I wear Thin Finns most of the time...

Levis and Costco (which are under $14) are the best deals. Filene's Basement often has the $200 range jeans for under $100.
