Is that a lipstick pocket?
Its a pen pocket, but you could always put your fire engine red lipstick in there, I assume.

So you don't wash after wearing or do? I hate wearing jeans more than 2x as they get baggy feeling unless they get washed. Raw denim diff?

Looks like a nice jackknife pocket

I am in the wash them when they are dirty camp. You won’t get as dramatic fades, but they will still fade and you will have clean pants.

A knife would definitely fit. I usually skip it because TSA isn’t a fan.

However, I would suggest skipping the spin cycle and the dryer.

Reporting back to this thread, I did end up going down the rabbit hole.. I can't wear mall jeans any more.. On the other hand, I'm content with entry level selvedge. I have yet to spend more than $120 on any one pair. I bought a few pairs from Taylor Stitch recently, made in the US from US denim from Cone Mills since the mill shut down and we won't be able to get US denim soon. After that I guess it'll be Japanese only.

My leg build is not very denim friendly. I need a bit more stretch.

They're not all skinny jeans. I can't (or won't) wear them. The ones I just got from Taylor Stitch have room in the legs without being dad jeans. Or maybe they are dad jeans and I'm just too old to realize it. They're made right in San Francisco, you could go try them at their store.

I have no problem with Dad jeans. Who am I trying to impress anymore. Hell, I'm in shorts and a sweatshirt 90% of the time. :)

Yeah, me too. Shorts or sweats. Denim is dressed up for me.

I hear you, but you wouldn't want your wife to wear "mom" jeans, would you? :think:

This. I am relatively thin at 35 yrs old and rock out slim fit jeans now that I was turned on to selvedge. I just donated a bunch of my old baggy Levis jeans. I never received a compliment in cheap dept store denim, but I get them semi-regularly in my fancy selvedge, so they must look better. I've had good luck buying a lot of denim of eBay. As has been said, fit is often difficult to determine online, so there are a ton of people who sell new or worn once denim on eBay for 50-75% off.

I think N&F is a good place to start for semi-affordable denim, but it is best to try them on in person. They have a ton of fits and are manufactured in Canada with Japansese denim. They've got a lot of less traditional denim like twisted denim (rainbow colored weave on the underside of the denim), reflective denim, and various cool colors. They also make selvedge chinos, which are on my list of things to try. I equate Canadian manufacturing to US manufacturing, so I am happy to give my money to our northern neighbors as opposed to the Chinese manufacturers. Other made in US/Canada brands not previously mentioned are Bravestar, Gustin, Williamsburg Garment Co, Rag and Bone, and United Stock Drygoods.

I just searched and all I see is straight fit or skinny fit. I guess I’m out.
