All, I've learned a lot by following the men's clothing section of SF but have not spent too much time following streetware and denim. Although I feel relatively confident buying suits, shoes, shirts, and ties, I can't say the same for jeans. In fact, I own only 1 pair of old Nautica jeans that are somewhat baggy. I'm going on a trip soon and would like to pick up a pair of jeans but don't have too much time for shopping or reading up. If my store options are Nordstrums and Macys and say I have a budget up to $150, what would be my best bet and what should I be careful about so as to not throw my money away? I've looked at some old threads here but they are too detailed for my quick fix that I need. Any advice appreciated? I live in Miami so there are other store options but I'm somewhat pressed for time.
