    Duluth Trading Company's Firehose Jeans and Ballroom Jeans are pretty much indestructible. (They are called Ballroom Jeans not because you wear them to fancy parties...)Their not cheap, but its impossible to wear them out. And their commercials are hysterical too....

    Good luck and take care.
    Rural King is a store like Tractor Supply? I've not seen one of those, I will definately look into that!

    They are good for many things though.

    Sheplers is the one place that I can buy jeans time and time again and they fit. The size I order doesn't seem to vary, which drives me nuts.

    You beat me to it. I really wanted to try the firehose jeans, but they don't make them for us skinny guys. So, settled back to the Carhartts. Levis? I abandoned them years ago due to no two pairs being the same size and colon coverage in the back failing at the top corners of the pockets.

    Duluth has a..... interesting..... advertising campaign, for sure.

    I'm a Levi 505 guy. I don't even want to get into the whole outsourcing an American Icon thing...it's a sore subject with me. Anyway..... I will not work in a pair of $40 SundayGotoMeeting Levis, so I looked around and found Schmidt workwear at Tractor Supply:
    C.E. Schmidt Workwear - Shop C.E. Schmidt Clothing, Boots, Jeans & More at Tractor Supply

    I have their jeans, but like the brown canvass utility one's best. Similar to Carhartt but cheaper in price...<$20 on sale.

    I've worn Levis most of my life, then discovered carhartt. but both of them stopped making 35 inch waist some kind of conspiracy or discrimination So they figure if your that size you either squeeze into 34 or wear a baggy 36's.

    I found an on line store that still had the 35's (Levis) last year.

    Men's Jeans - Levi's, Wrangler, Cinch, Dickies, and more

    My wife laughs at me cause I've got it down to a science, knowing the exact model numbers and weights.

    I also wear carhartt shorts all spring summer and fall, with those 34" is fine. Was on a job were most of the construction work was being done by union contractors. Some foreman came up to me and told me I couldn't wear shorts on the property, I just laughed at him. Can't wear pants in the summer, I would of had to go home.

    I have found the Carhart's bib overalls to be my go-to clothes for heavy work if it's not over 75 degrees. No need for a belt or suspenders, reinforced knees, lotsa pockets, and the bib pockets are great for cell phone and wallet (if I have to run out for parts). Plus the bib pockets snap shut, so stuff doesn't fall out when you bend over to pick something up.

    Funny you should mention this as the banner ad for 7 For Mankind , next to your first post, has a picture of a super-vamp, complete with wind tossed hair, stillettos and spray-on jeans.

    A bit off topic - I recently was pleasantly surprise both by Carhart and Cabella jeans that I picked up at TSC & Cabella's for office wear. Extremely comfortable cut and nice colors other than blue.
