Alright, I'm looking for some really lightweight but durable jeans that can be dressed up or down, and in the 60- neighborhood. Is there anything out there? I wear Mavi now and love them, but maybe there's something better, plus variety is the spice of life, right? What's everyone like?

Thanks

mike

Hi Mike, The only jeans that I wear and bare in mind that I live in Sydney Australia are KEPPERS and they are light but they can also be worn as Dress Pants or Casual Pants. But living in Australia I have no idea what you are saying of - and in the 60- neighborhood - If you are able to help me understand the USA Lingo it would be much appreciated. Heckle

to the forum....if you were buying your next pair of jeans, what would they be? heard that diesel makes a good one, but know nothing about the brand. make that any brand of jeans, except the levis 501s my wife wants me to abandon and "leave to the the 1950s." only pair i have bought recently have been banana republic, which seemed a little more 'modern.' man, when WILL i get with the new trends?

Foxx,

My two favorite brand of jeans are Helmut Lang and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Those two brands simply fit me the best. I like the design of a lot of Diesel jeans, but their jeans are too baggy on me in the styles I like.

Earl Jeans just started making jeans for men. Not sure how these are, but their womens jeans are supposed to be the favorites of everyone.

 Similarly, I am not a fan of either Replay or Energie jeans, neither of which I think warrant their high pricetag.
Are Energies that expensive in the US? The pair I bought (Morrison, New Morrision, something like that) was pretty reasonable for the quality, at e68. (Diesels, by comparison, are usually triple figures.)

Another jean I like that doesn't do exotic washes but does use very nice denim put together quite well is Sisley. I think they should be in the US$60 ballpark that the original poster mentioned, and you won't find them on the lower half of every other American.

Peace,

JG

Do you guys buy your jean sizes more on the loose side or the fitted side?

TIA,

LDawg, I go for more of the fitted look. I hate baggyness, sagging all that. I don't think it looks couth. But as my mom would say, "I'm not wearing it." Â So to each his own. Parsons

but still interesting companies like Parasuco, Hippie (next generation Jefri), and Frankie B.
Isn't Parasuco a Canadian company, or am I thinking of Buffalo?

I'm not sure about Buffalo, but I'm pretty sure that Parasuco is a Canadian company. The only problem I've seen with their jeans are that the pockets aren't the greatest and are prone to tearing.
