Any suggestion for lightweight denim for summer? I've never bought lightweight denim before. Any suggestions? I think Earnest Sewn makes some but not sure.

what's your price range. You might want to go with a 10 oz AG( $145.00) or the jeans mentioned above.
Evisu makes a good light weight denim I believe it's 10oz. and the look great but damn are they expensive.

I wouldn't mind spending $150 for lightweight denim, but now that I think about it, I could probably just get regular denim for the same price and wear them all year round.

Is there that big of a difference between lightweight and reg. denim? Is it worth it?

Nope, Pennsylvania. Plus, I would probably be wearing them at night.

If you have a shitload of money to burn and want some seriously lightweight denim, 45RPM's BC4000 jeans are 9oz.

I'd imagine lightweight denim makes for better strip club attire, if you're into that sort of thing
