Never really tried any of the 'designer' labels that I'm seeing mentioned here, but Levis are awesome. When I wear jeans, that's it for me. Their skinnies (can't remember the #) kick ass. Build quality, style, durability, it's all there.
However, most of the time I'm found rocking cargo pants and a band T-shirt: the bum look. Gonna start breaking out the Levis as it gets colder though.
