Looking for new dark jeans

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
For the past few years I've been wearing levis 511. Now, however; they're 70 dollars which I think is a bit too much for jeans made in third world countries and of 2% elastic. I've been wearing the Blue Flame model, which is about as close to raw denim it gets. The reason I've strayed from raw for the most part is because I'd like to avoid getting indigo on all my nice dress shirts—dont crucify me for the sacrilege, but I spend most my time on MC. Anyway, unless someone can reassure me that wearing raw, sanforized denim won't leave dress shirts stained (in which case I'll get a pair), I'm looking for a new pair of slim, 511 type fit jeans that are dark wash and relatively inexpensive. Any help would be really, really, appreciated.

Bump once for good measure and out of hope.

This may or may not be helpful, but Brooks Brothers carries a line of Levis that are made in the USA.  They have the 501, 505, 511, 514.  However they are really expensive.  So that may not be exactly what you want.  But hey, at least it's made in the USA.

Yeah 200 seems insane for a pair of levis. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. It's not so much made in the usa that I'm worried about, it's that if im paying 70 dollars for jeans, they shouldn't be made in a country where it costs a dollar to produce them.

It will absolutely stain your dress shirts, especially the lighter ones unless you soak them multiple times before wearing.

You know there is a huge thread for jeans... 

Wait for levi 40% sale (these happen often), or uniqlo.
