Joie jeans

I've seen quite the number of jean threads while browsing through the forum, but I have only found one reference to Joie jeans among all of those threads.

Diesel, D'Image, PDC, Ernest Sewn, Seven, G-Star, Levi's, and god knows how many other brands are often mentioned but never Joie.

I believe it was LA Guy who posted that they were one of his picks of the "premium" brands, but that they fell apart alarmingly fast. (apologies if I misinterpreted your statement)

I picked up a pair of Joies late last year, and absolutely love them. I guess they aren't in danger of wearing too fast as I wear them maybe once or twice a week and usually on nights out.

Is the wearing out really that quick (ie. a common issue) or is this an exaggeration?

When I bought them, I was expecting to wear them out in colder weather and was worried about the softness and how light they were but that has pretty much resulted in a very comfortable jean.

Also gets high marks as being one of the few pairs of jeans I've owned recently that keeps something of a boot cut after being altered, as I am not the tallest guy in the world by any stretch.

Just curious if anyone else is wearing 'em and lovin' em like I am since I hear about pretty much every other brand I've seen and then some.

I would definitely pick up a second pair the next time I'm in the market for a new jean (and I don't mean to replace the current ones.)

Anyone???

Yup - I love Joie jeans - the two brands I typically wear are AG and Joie as they both fit close to perfect. The name is a little feminine though.

Joie (French noun) = Joy, happiness, delight.

Be reassured.

Thanks - I knew that - my point was that happy words like Joie are not that "testosteronish" (I know I'm going to get in trouble over this). I'd like my jeans to be called Butch, Spike or Kroll the Warrior King

Glad to see that you've found a pair of jeans that you really like. Joie jeans look hideous on me, so I try to shy away from them.

EDIT: re: wearing out "fast." It depends on how you wear them.. once or twice a week, sure they'll last a year or two. Many people that complain about denim lasting two years would rather have them last 10 or 20. It's just a bummer that jeans are supposed to be items you can beat the shit out of but some modern day premium jeans are pretty fragile.
