If it's any consolation, I experience the same 'mode of failure' on my Levi's, Lee's and Wranglers.

I still can't afford them with this coupon, but 7 For All Mankind is having a 30% off sale for anyone who likes their denim:

For now I will stick with my affordable Levi's 521's.

it humors me that i am wearing wranglers when evisu is to be had. the thing is anywhere i would be wearing something that expensive it could not be jeans. i so love the designs but to shovel animal waste? i can't even wear jeans at work which is stupid because many of the recording artists do.

 

i wanted to mention: notice all these hong kong "fake" websites popping up now? i saw an arcteryx shell for $90 and i was like omg! then i quickly realized what the deal was.

there is plenty of $150 evisu too. as per the watch thread, my feeling is one might as well live in a fake mansion. so not for me. even though it would be easier to swallow trashing them i do not wish to support that trade.

Arizona slim cut or Levi 505's for me, 30x34, which are nearly impossible to find.

As for the whole not-washing thing, after 2 days in a row of wear, they definitely begin to get a faint to mild hint of funk-smell below the fly area and in the seat, and I'm not a particularly odoriferous or sweaty guy at all. I can't imagine how after even a few weeks of wear your jeans don't get a little smelly. Do you rotate them out so they can air out for a day or so between wears?

I rotate my jeans and clean them with wet cloth if they don't need to be washed.  They are then left to dry in air conditioned room.

Sounds like lots of money...

 

Costco Jeans, Shorts of all kinds, from anywhere I see something I like, (more of a shorts-fi guy here) but the denim doesn't need to be expensive for me. I think the extra expense is nice, but perhaps needless.

 

Shorts year-round! tongue_smile.gif

 

i.e maybe an occasional pair of luckies or a couple of the other 'nicer' pairs can make it into the wardrobe every couple years..

Thinking about getting my first pair of raw jeans. Really want a pair of Momoarto raw jeans from japan, so im trying to get a pair. Hard to find in the US for around $150

They are not cheap.  I like my Momotaro 0201.  smily_headphones1.gif

I buy the cheapest ones i can find, but the thing is with black jeans i like ones that don't have that yellow/orange stitching so they're hard to find.

Yes very slowly.  I only have the time to wear it once a week and that's without wearing other jeans !
