My absolute favorite jeans are Lucky Brand, but I'm talking about comfort and looking good. If you are buying Carhartt, you're probably working in them or more concerned with durability than I am.

If not, Lucky makes some damn comfortable jeans which they charge upwards of $100 for. But, You can also find them in places like TJ Maxx for like $20, which I have, or in Costco for $39.99.

If you know your preferred brand and size, check ebay. They're full of new & like new jeans people bought that ended up being the wrong size. Sold a pair or two there myself. Save a bundle.

Also very good advice. I've been on both sides of that equation.

At $12.99 you owe it to yourself to try these. I've bought them in store on sale for as low as $9.99.

They honestly remind me of the way Levi's used to be.

MJB, they look terrible on the model in the photo at your link.

I LOVE Costco but I've learned to keep my clothing purchases there to socks and undies. I ended up returning almost every clothing item I've bought from them save for a polo shirt some years ago when they still offered decent sportswear.

I've had very good luck with them, YMMV.

For me, and I should have mentioned this in my above post, it's the fit. I have not tried their jeans but bought dress shirts and slacks (khakis) from them when I decided to stop dressing like Magnum, P.I. Quality and price was fine, fit, not so much.

These days, I only shop Brooks Brothers, Orvis, LL Bean, and, rarely now, Land's End.

Rustler jeans at Wal-Mart. Cheap, great fit and comfortable.

I found a pair of Wrangler Cowboy Cuts at Tractor supply for $32. They're super-heavy denim. I also bought a pair of Blue Mountain (or something like that) for 14.99.

Both pairs had the higher waistband that I like. I tried on some Lee and Carhartts but the waistbands felt really low. It seems Carharrt has gone to the lower waistbands recently because my older jeans aren't that way.

The older we get, the more we appreciate a higher rise in our pants. Wait, what?

I wear the *Rustler* label from Walmart.

To me they look fine, they fit fine and they cost about $12.00 a pair.

If I mess them up painting cars or whatever … they are right on the edge of disposable at the price.

I have a whole closet full of Costco dress shirts. I never wear them anymore, but I'll be ready when the next funeral comes along.

I used to buy Land's End, but the Costco shirts are of much higher quality, believe it or not.

Unless you don't like non-iron (me). I prefer pure cotton shirts with zero treatment. Costco dress shirts, at least the older ones from some years back, were pure cotton but the treatment used to make cotton non-iron made the shirts stiff and not as breathable as I want.

The only Land's End shirts I have are from their Hyde Park casual shirt collection. They're OK for knocking about. I also tried the HP dress shirts and returned them all due to short collars (too metrosexual for my taste).

You're right, CG, the Costco shirts are stiff. I don't know what the treatment is. Mrs. R, sweet thing that she is, irons my shirts for me (I do the washer/dryer part).

Another thing I dislike about Levi's and some others is a reduced number of belt loops. The last Levi's I bought only had 4 belt loops. Round House has 7 and heavy weight denim. The RH are going to last a good long time. I wear jeans almost every day.

I also have a pair of Rustlers. I thought Rustlers was to Wranglers as Squier and Electromatic are to Fender and Gretsch.

I have no complaint with my Rustler jeans.

But then, neither with my Affinity Strat nor my G5120.

I like Carhartt jeans. I've found that the everyday prices at the farm supply stores is usually pretty reasonable (around $30) and they have them on sale periodically for around $24.

That being said, my wife says I buy my jeans too baggy (she wants to see my butt) so she's got me wearing borderline skinny jeans that have stretch fabric. I don't really like 'em much but I wear 'em sometimes to make her happy. I have more fun when she thinks I'm lookin' good, so it's worth it.
