I'm having some difficulty finding a good pair of dark, pre-rinsed jeans with little to no distressing locally, so it looks like I'll be ordering online. I usually wear either Levi 514 or Gap Low-Rise Straight jeans, but I'd like to invest in a nicer pair of plain dark denim. Waist 36, inseam 32-33.

I am not interested in raw jeans.

Budget is $200, but would like to keep it down as much as possible.

These are what I have come up with so far:

The current frontrunner:

Little more distressing on these than I would like, but still looks good:

And last but not least:

As always, any input appreciated.

Outta those 3, I like the Joes. My favorite wash demin is Earnest Sewn, and I think Ance got some decent wash as well.

I dig Earnest Sewns too, but I can't find a pair with an acceptable amount of distressing.

I actually came across some ES jeans at a store here in town for $100, but all they had were bootcut.

I kindof like #3. The other two have pocket stitching that, well could look cheap. The levi's would certainly be recognized, so that's ok. I think #3 is a bit more mysterious, and the wash is visually interesting without being obvious as to why.
