Ok I'm going to update this thread to a Designers Jean Guide
I'll add the comments so feel free to add some of your favorite characteristics for your favorite jeans.
Hopefully it will help others too.
Diesel = Construction/Durablility
For me it was easy to choose Diesel because of their construction. Just trying on a pair of diesel's in a fitting room was enough time for me to figure out their quality.
The double stiching and fabric is so durable my first pair still looks as new after 6 years of wear.
7 For All Mankind = Comfort
I got my first 7's a year ago on sale and liked how they were super comfortable. Most of their jeans are thin and they stretch so it's almost like wearing sweat pants.
True Religion = Uniqueness
Although I never owned a pair of TR, I don't need to spend a dim to figure out their characteristics because they're so unique. The eye catching picket design is so unique it screams to everyone walking behind you. The only problem I see is that they never do anything new so you can't own too many I guess.
Nudie = Skinny Fit/Legs
Heard great things about the fit especially for the skinny/tall guys. "Slim Jim" seems to be loved by many people.
Adriano Goldschmeid (AG) = The Classic
Adriano Goldschmeid is the guy who started Diesel with Renzo Rosso and his jean company AG (adriano goldschmeid) makes amazing jeans. They are well made and comfortable and they are classic. The washes are incredible too(atleast now days they are).
Hudson = Comfort
Anyone who has ever tried on Hudsons says they have never had a better fitting or more comfortable jean. We carry them at my boutique and everyone loves them immediately.
