    My favorite pair would have to be my Eternal 811, followed by Denime XX.

    My rotation includes:

    -6 or 7 year old LVC '47

    -Another strange LVC one-off from Ron Herman. 501s, about 5 years old, really good light weight, non-selvege denim that has faded really great with lots of "vertical falling," as they say, leather patch, yellow stitching (instead of the normal white) along the outseam where the selvege would normally be. I could never find another pair of these, but I saw a guy wearing them once in L.A. He also was bummed the he couldn't find another pair. They cost $98, if I remember right.

    -APC Rescue

    -5ep Low Boot. I love these. I wish they fit better. I got them off ebay and they're marked 33X32, but measure more like 35.5X32. If they were a true 34, I'd be ecstatic. Still, best denim quality I've encountered, great cut, great details.

    -Denime. Unmarked, bought them about 10 years ago at Ron Herman without really knoowing what they were. Very slim cut, raw (also great denim with great fading) but a oversized for me. Again, wish I had the right size.

    -Denime 66 black. Just got them from Coldrice. Haven't worn them yet.

    -Vintage 505 orange tab. From a Fort Worth thrift store, these have awesome wear and whiskering. I've repaired them in about 10 places. On their last legs.

    -Vintage 517-0217 red tab, nearly raw. I like these, but I'm considering selling them on ebay. I bit too long, too tight, too high waisted

    -Vintage 70s Levis denim cargo(?) pants. Slightly bootcut, orange tab, faded, nice denim. Side patch pockets with snap pockets over them and snap rear pockets. I think I'll have to post a picture of these. Not sure what they're called.

    I remember those, but can't remember the name of them. There was a Levis Premium reissue of them a couple of years ago.

    Someone here will remember the original name for those...

    Here's the '47. Note, I wash my jeans pretty frequently, so I don't have the crazy contrast that some of you get.

    Here are the oddball LVC's. Sorry about the crappy lighting. I can try again in daylight if it matters. Both this pair and the 47's are STF, bought raw.

    Those reissues were not exactly like the originals. Mine have a two snap enclosure on the front and very wide belt loops. They also aren't as slim cut as the reissues. They are fairly close though.

    I love my Uniqlo Shuttle Denim. The fit is just perfect, low enough on the hips, but not too low. I wish that I went longer with them, but the next pair that I get will be longer, that's for sure.

    Digging the jean shops I bought a couple weeks ago. A close second is the RRDS I have in the mix. 4 days of the Jean Shops and 3 days of the RRDS. My sugarcanes catch a little action if i go hiking.

    I like Levi's 569s. They fit me well.

    Helmut Lang Classic Cuts will probably always be my favorite jeans.
