    I voted SD-103 because I'd like to see a really well worn-in pair in "post pics of your denim" when you get back. [​IMG]

    I suggest bringing the APC as backup.

    Thanks for all the votes!
    APC and SD are leading, I think I'll actually take whichever pair gets the highest number of votes.
    In fact, I'll probably take both, but only wear the one that wins, keeping the other on reserve.

    To whomever asked, Barcelona, Milan, Dublin, London, Paris.

    I would think the most comfortable jeans to travel with would be the one with the loser fit, or with a lower rise. I hate it when I have to sit for extended period of times with a higher waisted trousers compressing my stomach.

    That's what unbuttoning the top button is for.

    I voted the Lee's. You don't want jeans that feel like they tearing at your crotch when backpacking!

    That used to be a way of declaring one's sexual orientation.

    I have nothing to say, I just wanted to complete the trifecta.

    The way that is paved with secret lives and long traditions in both classical and Chinese civilisation; the way that is lined with a gauntlet of abominable bigots; the way that sometimes only is.

    Sorry, researching and writing on the homosexual tradition in China, especially during the Tang.

    I travelled in South East Asia 6 weeks in a pair of Evisu. Luckily I had brought another pair as well, it sucks if they get wet or something. The Evisu's started smelling after a few weeks, but broke in pretty good. I still haven't washed them (4 months now) and use them for working/riding motorcycle/hiking.

    heartworm saved the day!

    My thread barely survived the derailing of a lifetime.

    So, I leave in about 30 hours, and it looks like i'm bringing the APC and SD at this point.

    I'll be sure to keep all buttons up, just so I don't give off the wrong impression. I've been approached a number of times, all very flattering, just not my orientation is all.

    Oh, and don't lean back against a wall with one leg up, especially if you are at a truck stop. I've made that mistake more than once. [​IMG] Nice choices, by the way...
