    I don't really have "nice" denim, just a couple of mediums

    J Brand Kane (the most comfortable)
    N&F 10oz weird guy indigo selvedge (too light/thin to wear during the winter)
    Unbranded UB301s that I'm slowly breaking in (the ball busters)
    PRPS rambler raws (my #1 go to)

    After those I have about 3 pairs of 501s, a pair of forgettables from Banana Republic and about 7 pairs of Abercrombies that haven't seen the light of day in about over 5 years. I have a pair of True Religions that were damaged while motorcycle riding that I was going to repair but never did. After 3 knee blowouts and a thigh blowout one pair are now shorts and the other just sits in the dark...brooding. The rest are grass cutting hard labour jeans by various makes like Polo, Buffalo, Calvin Klein, etc.

    Oh and a pair of Carhartts carpenter jeans just because I believe they are actually bulletproof

    Thanks Hirsh.

    One of these days I'm going to put my pennies together, drive to NYC and get a pair of PBRs. Due to my constant procrastination it won't happen anytime before the spring/summer

    Good luck - I wish I could drive to New York to shop- I spend a fortune shipping to the UK!!!

    Btw, pair no.17 has happened!!!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Boyfriend has ordered me a pair of Ralph Lauren jeans online- please, please, let this be the last pair![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hopefully I'll be able to stop at 17- it would help if I stopped surfing jeans, as I am looking for new winter boots!!![​IMG]

    Thnx a lot [​IMG]

    Personally I prefer skinnies or slim straight Japanese Selvedge jeans, but these will get worn until they drop, although ATM I'm putting all of my attention into my bespoke 21oz Kurabo jeans, which I've had since July 2012:[​IMG]

    They're fading really well, but it's impossible to show under artificial light.

    This is the last daylight pic I took a few months ago:[​IMG]

    Yes I can't imagine why nobody else wants to post on this thread.

    I've got 2 Siamese cats, but they're not very interested in jeans, whereas I'd hoped peöple on a denim forum would be!!!

    Anyway, both 17 and 18 have been shipped, I'll pr probably order 19 and 20 next week[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Oh, and I've split up with my boyfriend for the zillionth time, so no new jeans from him for a while!

    I've designed my Holy Grail pair, heavyweight of course, but that's for saving up for...so I'll stick at 20 for a long time!!!

    What up baby girl it's your boy snoopy! :slayer:

    Nah da problem is dat jeans is not as fashionable for now. Chicks and dudes are rocking sweats and yoga pants. So that is why not many peeps are responding. But jeans will be in fashion again soon you'll see.

    I think I got like 55 pares in my closet. Need to recount.
