    I have the biggest issue with finding jeans that fit right. They are either not right around the waist, can't get around my butt, or are way too tight on my legs. I know, I know, how the hell do I find a pair of jeans. I don't. I like pants that fit, but not like girl jeans. Can anyone suggest a style of jeans that fit my needs. Mind you I am a college student so the designer jeans are not in the picture. I also don't look like "boot cut", they look like bell bottoms.

    buy a pair of levis that kinda fit and let them stretch out as you wear them.

    I know what you mean I was having the same problem and a lot of the levis and low ball jeans wont work. I like wearing jeans that fit but arent freaking super tight. I heard a lot of guys wear girl jeans because they cant get the fits that they like but I dont go to that extent. If you have the money check out true religion jeans every pear I have had fits awesome. Also look up 7 jeans my freind wears the 7 slimmies and he likes them. Rock and republic sells some nice fits to but I dont like them.

    APC new standards, maybe APC rescues? they stretch a shitload, so they shouldn't fit tight in the areas you dont want them to after they stretch/

    and dont listen to the fucking idiot who suggested you check out true religion or sevens. you can get way better quality and fitting jeans for the same price or less.

    it has nothing to do with personal preference. don't insult the threadstarter by recommending him inferior jeans that cost more money. do your research and you'll get the respect you want to deserve.

    raw denim isn't for everyone

    with that said, true religions are by far the shittiest jeans for the price ever made by man

    seven jeans aren't that bad actually, too bad everyone has them

    rocks are also okay

    if you're unsure about jeans, the best way to go is levis, but spending good bucks on jeans isn't such a bad investment, shitty jeans really show their shittiness, and good denim usually lasts longer anyways

    If you can find a Lucky outlet store, you might find something that fits really well. :dunno:

    Cheaper, eh...try a GAP outlet.

    Last resort, Levi's.

    I just bought some Lucky jeans and they are perfect. And coincendently I bought some cheap (but decent looking) GAP jeans ($15) and my friend said she liked those more. :o

    I have 2 pairs of Gap skinny jeans and they fit awesome, also claim it is Japanese denim. Also, check out the Levi Capital E line, I have a pair of those and they fit great, the matchsticks specifically. I am also looking at the Levi 501 and 511 slims. Anyone have any experience with either of those, thanks.

    The 501s are classics. They actually make some now with better denim, leather patches, and washes that look pretty good for cheap washed jeans.

    The 511s can be very slim, so if you just want a moderate slim cut, get the 514s. I think there are "raw" versions of both available, but not always easy to find.

    What about someone who is short and stocky? I've only found one pair of jeans that are decent fitting and that was at Gap. I'm a 34x29. I'm too short for jeans, dammit!

    I went to Kohles the other day and I swear they have the "Raw" versions of the 511's, they were on sale for 34.99 too. Im gonna go back this weekend to purchase a pair especially since I got a 5 off coupon when signing up for their mailing list
