Hey guys, I'm looking for some jeans to wear dry or washed for less than a hundred. I've already bought sugercanes, new standards, and ES hutches this year so I need to buy something a little cheaper than the denim I just mentioned. Does anybody think the gap gaucho looks good? What about the levis shrink to fit jeans? They seem like a steal for 46 bucks.

You can often find the Levi's Shrink to Fit for much less than $46. I bought two pairs for just $30 each from Mervyn's.

You already have 3 good pairs of jeans. Why do you need a cheap pair?

The truth is, I bought all these pairs this year and I'm kind of getting addicted to denim. Unfortunately, I've spent a lot on very expensive denim which leaves me less money. Hey does anybody have any opinion about the PDC three year? Their 99 bucks at revolve clothing.

Thanks for your suggestions guys, I'm gonna go check out Mervyn's right now.

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopp...roductID=23345 A friend of mine has these and they look/fit good for 100. I like the look of them a bit more than the 3 year. I was thinking of getting these in the coming weeks, mainly because i know an urban outfitters where i can actually try them on unlike a lot of jeans i want.

H&M Sliq is $40. Slim-fit straight leg with medium-low rise. They come in some washes which are okay, but they also make a raw indigo colored pair, and a raw black pair. I have the raw black and they are pretty cool jeans for the money. Can't wait to break them in some more. Since I would assume all your current pairs are some shade of blue, you might like the Sliq in raw black. Really can't go very wrong for $40.

I have to second Versace Man, I looked at the H&M jeans and they appeared to be very nice for the money. If I didn't already have so many jeans I would have picked up a pair.

On a side note, of you can fit 29 or 30x30, I have a pair of the AG designed Gap 1969 jeans from 2000 for sale for $29 shipped (in the US.) They are probably the best (and only nice) Italian selvedge jeans that Gap ever carried.

Those raw black sliqs are nice, i saw them a month or so ago but of course there was only one pair left and they haven't replenished that color at all

I wouldnt buy any PDC for close to $100 they sell them for much cheaper at Discount stores like Nordstrom Rack. Uniqlo gets quite a lot of respect for a cheap jean here. Try to get your hands on the raw black/indigo Dress up denim. I have a pair with a wash and they fit great, Slim, Straight leg (true straight leg), cheap at about $40 a pair in every Uniqlo in Tokyo.

Come to think of it, the absolute best bang for the buck I have ever had in a pair of jeans has got to be my RRLs dry Japanese selvedge jeans that I got on ebay for $40 or so. There were a bunch of them in that price range on ebay for awhile, if they are still there it is an exceptional value. They are among my very favorite jeans that I own.
