I don't have any designer jeans right now. I never really thought much about the world outside of the potato sack department store brands, because frankly I am a total troglodyte. But once a friend loaned me some upscale jeans when I needed an extra change of clothes, and I remember they fit crazy well and felt and looked wayyy better than the usual crud I wear. It kinda opened my eyes to how good jeans could actually be. But I never followed up.
Now I'm interested in getting some serious jeans. However I've been dressing like a slob for years and I have no idea what brands are what. I have no notion of brands, cuts, fits, materials, anything really. If you can suggest a good place to begin I would really appreciate " class="bbcode_smiley" height="" src="http://files.denimblog.com/smilies//icon_smile.gif" title="" width="" /> I would like to stay under $200 at least until I know more.
Any suggestions on brands I should check out? I'm male, about 5'9" / 160 lbs. have skinny legs and knobby knees but occasionally get compliments on my ass.
Where do I start?
