We had an old-school supply store in town where I bought my jeans. I paid $30 a pair for Carhartts. Alas, they closed down last fall so I went shopping for some new jeans around town. I was shocked!

Penney's and Kohls want $60 per pair for Levi's and Lee. Ouch! Oh...They were generous enough to offer (for the average sucker) a deal of getting the second pair for 50%. That's still $45 per pair. WTH!

So I'm curious where y'all get your jeans and how much do you pay?

Order from a vendor that has a good return policy. Easy peasy.

Last time I bought a pair of Levi's, they fell apart in the wash after about two months of light wear. The quality of the denim they used was junk--loose weave, low thread count, quite thin compared to the denim they used years ago.

That was three years ago. Not wasting my money on Levi's again.

I don't wear jeans much these days but all of mine are Wrangler from Shopko or Target. Last time I bought a pair they were under $20.

Round House!

I bought a pair from them based on recommendations here. I soon followed that purchase with a couple more.

Ive found Cabelas Roughneck brand to be pretty decent and they go on sale for 20 bucks quite often.

I still snag a pair of Levis occasionally when they go for around 30 bucks on sale. Like Peegoo says they arent what the used to be.

I buy mine at the Value Village, a thrift down the block from my house. Some good deals to be had.

My Levi's hold up rather well. Maybe it's because I have skinny legs and behind.

Since we don't fly frequently, we have a Mastercard that earns us discounts at JC Penney. I retired last October, so I wear jeans every day of the week. My newest pair of Levi's is skinny jeans, model 513. The rest are 501s.

I grew up wearing Wrangler jeans, and I’m still wearing them. (I like their cargo pants, too.). The good news—for me—is that Walmart sells these and they only cost about $18. There are always subtle variations in size, and so I always try on at least two (preferably three) pairs of the “same” size.

They hold up pretty well. I’ve been wearing one pair for the past three years as I built my Phase I fence, and tore down Phase II, jackhammering concrete footings, hauling all this stuff away. When I wear these in Home Depot, I look like I belong there. :-)

Levis just never seemed to fit me well; just the way they’re cut. The skinnier I was (in my youth) the better I seemed to fit them.

I never buy clothes via the internet. Returning things via mail is a much greater PITA than a trip to Walmart.

I can't buy most jeans since they don't make my size...I go to the "Big and Fat Men's store" because...uhhhh...well, I am big and fat. I did not buy their jeans for a long time as when I did, they accented my second and third roll of fat and the pants were better designed for a "gangsta" than an old fat man. They finally realized that while they are trying to sell to the "hip young men of large size" us old guys need some love too. In the past 6 months, I have acquired 8 pair of jeans (4 tan and 4 stonewash denim). I had a couple of manufacturers prior to that for maybe the preceeding 5 years...I hated those jeans. I love my new blue jeans and tan "denim" pants.

The only problem is, I am still big and fat. But I am comfortable.

I've learned Dick's Sporting Goods sells Carhartt. We have one locally. I'll also check out Walmart. I didn't know they sell namebrand.

"Levis just never seemed to fit me well..."

I've learned to ensure that any brand sits at the waist. I bought two pair of Lees not paying attention and they rode way below the waist. I took them back.

I wear Lee carpenter jeans, have 5 pairs in rotation. They are okay, better than most of the crap jeans that are out there these days.

I might give those Round House jeans a try, though.

It's a cryin' shame what has happened with Levis.
