@T2ohoh Depends on your price range. If its under $200 go for APC. If your price range is 200-250 go for 3sixteens. 250-300 go for RRL or LVC. Anything above 300$ Samurai or PBJ's are the best bang for your buck.
Are you sure you're talking about denim with deeper front pockets? I didn't notice RRL, LVC or APC having front pockets that were any deeper than Levi's.
