If You Had to Live in One Pair of Jeans Only; Which Would It Be?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

If you were not able to chose; Which pair of jeans would you wear for the rest of your life? This is hard one for many of us. How could you really choose? But If you had to, would it be raw, skinny, selvedge, baggy, black, blue, colored, or distressed? If I had to chose mine would be the AG Premiere jeans in Black Destroyed. It is a faded black wash that I find to be very versatile and fit really great. So which would you chose?

Can't wait to hear what everyone has to say!

This exact question keeps me scouring denim blogs and trolling e-bay for new brands and styles to try.  

I dream of the ideal pair of jeans to take on a cross country road trip...

 

 

My first pair of designer denim was the Keate (which I am wearing today...love them!).  I've tried Diesel, Kunna, Buffalo, Joes, Nudie, Red Engine, Stitch's, and had a pair of all cotton button fly abercrombies I loved (and destroyed).

 

I really crave a new pair of all cotton button fly jeans and would choose those old Abercrombies as the best I've ever had but they were destroyed on a south american trip years back and lost to my foggy pre designer days.......soo........

 

the closest to perfect every day jeans (so far) would be the Stitch's Cheyenne.

ah such a hard question! I think it'd be my J Brand 912's in Ink. They're perfect for dressing up or down and the fit is impeccable. I'm so sad that J Brand discontinued the Ink wash though, it was my favorite!

True Religion Joey's - I don't know the wash or style- but they didn't really stretch were light blueish and hemmed to fit perfectly - Unfortunately they don't fit anymore

 

Actually I'm selling them right now - Can anyone ID the wash and style of them? They are on DenimBlog in Market place in the size 26 category - I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to buy a new pair in 27 or 28 - this walk down memory lane is making me want to indulge.

 

Cheers!

Amy

Great question, JMam!

 

It would probably be my grey stovepipe Club Monacos, just in time for spring.

 

I've worn (and washed!) them so much, though, that they're starting to look white.

Hi AmyN, can you share the link here?

We can dig for it, but it's easier if it's just one click away :-)

 

Thanks and good luck finding your memory lane Joey's!

Can you post a photo, Tacones 28? I don't know if I've seen Stitch's Cheyenne before.

 

Thank you in advance :-)

If I couldn't choose, I would pick Bullet Blues jeans (Bullet Blues Custom Apparel,LLC. - www.bulletbluesca.com). The jeans are made in USA using American made denim, buttons, burrs etc. They fit like a glove and they are soft. The quality is great. They don't shrink and the more you wear them, the better they get. I'm a proud American wearing my American made blue jeans. Bullet Blues feel great on the body and you don't mind wearing them 12 hours straight. They won't get too loose. You will still look fresh after a long day. I only wear Bullet Blues right now.

Stitchs Cheyenne depict.jpg

 

Hey Cordilia

 

Here are the stock photos of the Cheyenne until I have a chance to take pics of my own pair.  The only real problem I have with this brand is that they are NOT TTS.  They run really big, so much I have to size down about 2 sizes.  I'm a 28 overall and a 26 in stitch's is my best fit.  

 

But I have an addiction to Stitch's and fortunately have found a bunch of them very affordably through e-bay.

Bonjour, Isabelle Benoit!

 

After a quick search, it looks like you're the founder of Bullet Blues (according to your website). Can you tell us more about your design process, and from where specifically you source your materials (e.g., Kentucky, Texas, Michigan)? How much Spandex do you use in your fabrics to achieve your fit? Is it a 98% cotton / 2% Spandex blend? Did you study fashion in France or work for any brands before launching your own company?

 

Soyez la bienvenue to the DenimBlog Forums, too. To learn more about what the community offers, checkout the Ladies Lounge and the Wiki page.

 

Cheers,
Cordelia

Hello. I couldn't find a pair of jeans that fit my body to perfection because I have long legs for a size 24. I always had a problem with the length. I coudn't find a pair long enough to wear with high heels and when I did, after a few washes, the denim would shrink. I also like to show off my figure in a tight jean because I work out a lot and I think jeans are sexy, can be dressy with the right top etc. but they also have to be comfortable. This is why I had to design my own. This is how my company started. The fabric is made in North Carolina from a company known worldwide. Their price didn't stop me because i wanted the best. I picked some of their most luxurious samples and had them tested for shrinkage, softness, quality, etc. and I was very happy with the result. The fabric is 99% cotton and 1% stretch which is just enough. I have bought some jeans in the past that stretch too much after few hours of wearing them. I'm sure that a lot of picky women can relate to that. The production is made in California. The burrs and buttons are also designed and fabricated here. I also used the same fabric for the men and they just love them. If your audience want to purchase my jeans, they can e-mail me at bulletbluesca.com for a great saving. Thank your for your questions and your interest in my jeans. I also want to mention that the design is very simple. I just wanted a pair of jeans that fits like a glove and feels good to the body. Wouldn't you agree that it is great to have fabulous American made jeans? It's my way to say thank you for living in the best country in the world.

JMam, this is a great thread! I hope more people will post.

I would certainly wear my Dior Homme made in japan raws. They are so comfy and I could break them in so well by doing this.

I'm hoping the 21oz pair which I'm waiting for in the post will prove to be my Holy Grail jeans!

The Timothy Everests I wear daily are a great fit, but have gone on the knees.....I'm hoping the new heavyweight denim will just fade and get better and better....
