    Okay, at the moment I've got 3 pairs of jeans: Ralph Lauren, (mildly) stonewashed L32/W32 straight leg Ralph Lauren dark blue (indigo) L32/W32 boot fit Calvin Klein Easy Fit Jean: Dark Denim (Rinsed Blue) L32/W32 Recently I bought some ripped jeans as a 4th pair but I don't really like them (they're too ripped and too stonewashed for my taste.) My question to u experts is - what pair of jeans should i get instead? Bearing in mind I live in the UK, I was thinking of buying some 'Seven for all Mankind jeans,' but saw that they were £189 (over $300) whereas I don't want to spend more than £100 ($190) on designer jeans. Also, I don't fancy getting some Levi's - it seems like everyone's wearing them, and whilst I don't want anything flamboyant with ridiculous lettering (just a classic blue pair of jeans) I do want something designer that's a bit different. I've heard some good reviews here about Diesel, but again they might be a bit too unique for my tastes (i'm a conformist at heart lol) About me - I'm 5"9, athletically-built (not mega-muscly but not puny either) and 32" is my actual waist size. Any help would be much appreciated [​IMG]

    Get some Nudie Regular Ralphs in the raw indigo. With a true 32 waist, and seeing what you wear now, you should probably go for a size 31, for the same fit. They run about 100-110 pounds sterling, so, a decent price considering. Lee 101B's might also be a god choice. Both are readily available in the UK, but also at www.oipolloi.com, in Manchester.

    Thanks for all the replies so far [​IMG] keep 'em coming!

    Yeh, sounds good, except I've never had raw denim before... and at the moment I like to wash my jeans regularly, depending on how much I wear them. How does raw denim work, and are there any standard-denim options I could go for? Thanks again [​IMG]
