Find me a better example. While Tiranis runs off to do that, I was basiclly trying to show how much I hate the damned idiots who absolutly must have TR, 7FMA, and R&R simply because of the FUCKING BACKPOCKET STICHING. BTW, the $200 7FAM was at TJ. Maxx. Not sure if their full retail

All the TR and 7 jeans I've seen at TJ Maxx and Marshalls have been $50 or less. There are people that are the same way with backpocket stiching on the high end jeans. Look at the godawful evisu backpockets.

QFT. I don't think I've ever seen any jeans at $200 at TJ Maxx/Marshalls ever. Even Antik are like $149 there at the most.

I like some Diesel, Seven is usually unobjectionable to the point of being boring (though I've seen some I really like and some I absolutely hate), and Rock and Republic and True Religion both look completely ridiculous to me, from their flashy, loud back pocket designs to TR's idiotically oversized stitching and rivets (some of them are almost as big as pennies!). My feelings towards the brands mentioned have nothing to do with whether they're high or low quality. I've owned Sevens and Diesels and have never had any real quality problems, though I wouldn't say they're of particularly noteable quality, either. I've never owned Rock and Republics or True Religions and have no idea what their quality is like, nor do I care: high or low quality, they still look horrendous to me.

You can't really decide "quality" of construction based on a handful of anecdotal cases, such as the experiences of the couple dozen people who post in your thread. Try Consumer Reports. At least they have valid data on long term durability.

Diesel jeans generally fit pretty well. I remember a couple years ago where i wore more bootcuts, the zathan fitt my rear and thighs perfectly, but the bootcut was a bit much. Too bad, though.

CR isn't going to give out long term reliability data for jeans, at least not the ones that are commonly discussed on this forum. You're pretty much stuck with anedoctal cases when it comes to stuff like this, but TBH it's really a non-issue. Unless you buy Old Navy or something like that, most denim isn't going to fall apart very quickly, although some ppl did have issues with Crate's QC.

I don't see what all the bum is on Diesel. They make nice jeans and yes they are getting pricey but it's exactly what Levi's is going through.

Exactly. I have a pair of super baggy nonhighend jeans (marc jacobs or something) from my high school days (yes high school) when I was into the super baggy look that survived through daily abuse, through drunken tumbles in the grass in college and I still have them to this day for changing oil in my car and such. But the lesson is that these relatively cheap (<$50) jeans survived nearly a decade before starting to get holes through heavy abuse. Now they are patched to hell but still going strong.

EDIT - actually I don't even have TR's, I have Full Circles.

I'm not sure how you can praise Diesel on one hand while condemning R&R, 7FAM, etc, when they're essentially selling the same product (low rise, bootcut jeans) The pocket stitching isn't the issue as much as market segmentation is.

I unabashedly love some of these brands. I like Diesel and 7FAM. I tried on some R&R today actually, but their slim cut was pretty baggy, so I'll pass. TR is something I can't stand. I love the variety of washes, the comfort, the superb fit - and I won't burst into tears if I see the same jeans on the street. Also, TJMaxx has never sold Diesel for $200.

Actually I got a pair of Diesels at Maxx, a couple years ago, for around $30. I wore them a couple months ago and couldn't stand the obvious fade contrast.

Today I am wearing a white W+H hoodie, light blue t-shirt, and relaxed 7FAM in a medium NY wash. I think there's a time and place for different types of denim and for a really chill look to kick it around the house and grab a casual dinner, the soft and comfy 7FAMs are perfect.
