But LAGuy, you just dashed my plans for to design a USNews-inspired ranking of denim makers. Think of it, we could divide them into four tiers, make seperate rankings for small/regional manufacturers, and even emulate the graduate rankings by ranking how each maker performs according to which image the prospective wearer is seeking when wearing the jeans. You know, we could have Helmet Lang in the "aloof minimalist" program and Wrangler for the "hey guys, I'm a cowboy" program. Anyway, I'm in the same boat... classifying different labels together in terms of quality of construction and value offered for the price is helpful information... making a exhaustive individual ordering of brands that are all similar enough for the distinguishing criteria to fall mainly on the lines of subjective intangible qualities is just fussy.
