    How many pairs of jeans do you own? How many jeans that you own actually get worn on a regular or semi-regular basis?

    I own 12 pairs of jeans, but only about 5 of them get regular or even semi-regular wear.

    About 20 pairs

    about 4-5 pairs are diesels from 5 years ago that I never wear anymore

    2 washed prps
    1 washed kohzo and 1 washed 45rpm

    the rest are dry jeans made up of 5ep, rb, nudie, acne, somet, diors, and kmw

    I only wear about 2-3 pairs on a regular basis

    the rest are on and off ..sparingly throughout the year I would say

    future denim purchases: iron heart 634 and south willard 10oz jeans ..I dont know when Ill be buying these though..

    the future purchases is a good thing too

    i plan on getting a pair of STF's and some Strangler bootcuts. I have decided 40$ is the most I should spend on jeans at this point in my life.

    I find it hard to justify spending another 500 dollars on jeans as I have too many pairs. But im still gonna end up doing it ...

    A couple dozen. But the amount spans years. I dont think I throw anything away, although second and third looks warrant a purging.

    None. I've tried to wear jeans, but just can't stand them.

    Current rotation:

    SC Okinawas
    5EP LDB rigid
    Iron Heart 634
    APC NS
    45 rpm Sorahiko Slims o/w
    R&B rb6
    KMW 1950

    I probably have at least a dozen others of various brands (Diesel, 7FAM, Gap) that I no longer wear. Will probably donate or sell. From all the raws denim I currently own, I'm set for quite a while. Still kicking around 5EP straight down zips. Love 5EP jeans.

    I have 9 pairs.

    Last year was all about Nudie, this year i've gone all repro.

    Current rotation -
    SC '47's, most week days
    LVC '33 & Edwin ed-47, weekends

    I've become fascinated by Kato recently (www.katobrand.com), the design and methods of production, etc. I've got to somewhere find about £200 to get a pair though which i'm finding hard to justify.

    2, 1 (Acne) gets regular rotation. Not much of a denim fan.

    Too many, now:

    Sugarcane Okinawa (1.5 years old, fall, winter, spring)
    Rogan Original (1.5 years old, rarely wear, beater jean for heavy drinking at night)
    Samurai S5000VX (1 year old, fall, winter)
    APC Rescue (2 years old, spring, summer)
    PDC RPM (2 years old, rarely worn, summer)
    Rogan lightweight dark original cut (brand new, summer)
    Full Count 1108 (3 months old, fall, winter, spring)
    Kohzo persimmon-dyed (1.5 years old, rarely worn)

    No plans to buy any more any time soon. The next pair I buy will probably be something cut like the 5000VX but in a 13.5 oz dark denim.... If I can find it.

    I think I am going to donate all the crap that I never wear. Hopefully I can get some thrift store credit, at least.
