Yes only in SF must we choose between cord and denim.

Yall boys in your winter fabrics. It's almost time to bust out the booty shorts and linen, but instead we are out here talking about cord and denim. Show me some fabrics that will make the tropical summer less hellish.
This guy pretty much stole my comment. I’d only to add that you haven’t lived until you’ve gone commando in tropical virgin wool trousers

I accept I'm in a tiny minority with this point of view (especially on this side of the forum). I just don't find much redeeming value in wearing jeans. They're less comfortable, less versatile, less interesting than almost any other trouser choice you can make in my opinion.
I can see that denim is less comfortable at times. I've been wearing slim tapered cargos for a while now so I guess im in the same boat. But corduroy just seems so dated in the current world of fashion.

Only on the internet would someone think I meant you had to choose one or the other.

That said, I'll admit that I only own two pairs of jeans and wear them, maybe, 20 times a year.

IDK...doesn't pretty much everyone sell 5 pocket cords these days?

I don't understand people who hate raw denim. Probably one of my favorite things to wear. Relatively affordable as far as "fashion" goes, easy to care for, gets better with age, the backbone for many casual wardrobes, and yes, the sick fades.
"hate" is far too strong a word. "Indifference" is more accurate for me. In terms of having an emotion when I get dressed, I never feel that way when I put jeans on...never have. It's nothing like when I put on a suit, or a leather jacket, for example. I feel the same way about jeans as I feel about eating lunch at Subway...absolutely nothing.

My theory is that a lot of people tried raw denim when the trend was to size down on low-rise slim jeans, that shit won't be comfortable no matter how much you break them in.

I like denim as a fabric, but really dislike anything anywhere close to slim fit (i.e., anything in 501 country). I have a couple of pairs of loose-fit Old Town trousers in denim, best of both worlds... But then again I'm not into any Americana look.
