I've had good luck with "stretchy" jeans from J.Crew. Now if I'm going to go dig a garden or climb on the roof, I'm grabbing the Carhartts, but for "city" jeans.......https://www.jcrew.com/c/mens_category/denim_jeansAll of this talk of Eagle Counties inspired me to wear mine today with my khaki stretch jeans. I was not aware of the advances in jean technology, I stopped following jeans in the late 1980's, just after stonewashing was introduced LOL. I've WORN jeans ever since, but whenever I needed a new pair, I'd just grab some Levis or Carhartts, whatever was cheaper. Never really gave jeans much thought, so long as they were blue-ish and made of denim, that was all I needed to know.
But my kids have been wearing jeans a lot lately now that they are in high school, at a school which does not require kids to wear uniforms. I do most of our laundry and noticed that all all of their jeans felt weird. Stretchy. So when I needed some new jeans, I decided to give the stretchy kind a try. Honestly - they are fantastic. They fit well enough (these aren't super tight skinny jeans, just stretchy) and they're super comfortable. Probably not super durable, but more than adequate for city wear. Also, I've never had jeans in khaki before, I've seen people wearing them but never owned any myself. Again, they are fantastic. I can wear all of my casual AE's with them. Looking forward to more stretchy jeans.
