    Quality varies depending on where they are made.

    Which country is best?

    Maybe, though you'd, or at least I'd, be hard-pressed to document the easier detirioration of a pair of mexico made 501s vs some other country.

    Bare in mind, however, that you're comment above is what business people in some countries say in order to justify paying 200% more money for the same product ("No, it's not branding, it's quality of construction. That's why you're paying $120 for Levis 501s instead of $40).

    US&A makes the LVC and Capital E, so I'd probably agree.

    They also run a program using domestic fabric cut, sewn and washed in Mexico which for the price is very good.

    not all LVC are made in the US, a lot of the construction has been outsourced to Turkey IIRC.

    Also important is the quality of the denim/where that's from. Biggest reason to buy LVC and such if you ask me is for the Cone Mills denim.
