    I have 14 pairs and wear only jet black jeans. I do not own any other colour and would never even contemplate wearing blue denim in any shade. Why be one of the crowd. But I won't wear faded black. Must be dressy black. Love em and will always wear them. Clearly I'm not representative of other forum posters but, hey, I like that.

    I find that when I travel, I can usually go with a pair of blue and a pair of black jeans, unless it's a really warm climate. I like to pack light. Sometimes I go with just one color if I'm pretty sure of the kind of spots I will be visiting. Black jeans will get you into almost any restaurant if the jacket is correct. I have a pair that I had copied into black linen that I enjoy wearing.

    Danny- What type of shoes do you wear with your black jeans? Just curious.

    Interesting topic since i put on an older pair earlier this week and was wondering where they stood these days? Didn't like the look too much but it was just for work. Used to wear these out to clubs in the late 90's with black shoes and white & black or grey tops...wouldn't go with that look anymore.

    I can only see black shoes unless the jeans are quite distressed and not too dark.

    I'm with you there. Very distressed jeans can be worn with brown or white shoes (a la Dior Homme), but just jet black jeans are not very versatile in that respect. I wear black jeans with black monkstrap shoes, since the jeans tend to look like a very heavy, fitted trouser.

    Black (of course).

    May be versatile, but I prefer to avoid jeans when traveling.
    Jeans are not great for providing warmth, for quick drying, and for the unexpected dressy situation that I may find. They are great for coordinating them, and for their durability.

    However, I do love jeans.
    I own three blue, and one jet black that I recently purchased and have found to be highly versatile. I wish I had bought them before. Will have to try black jeans with a jacket. It may change my opinion about them for traveling.
