Levi Strauss. Excellent deals can be found on the 'bay, if you get my drift. :)

Lee or Eddie Bauer. I like Levi's but generally find them too expensive.

I've worn Levi's for decades, but I don't think I'll buy another pair from them. Their QC is practically nonexistant now. I bought two "identical" pairs - cut (style), size, differing only in color - and the fit was not even remotely close. One pair falls off me entirely unless I wear a belt, the other is so darn tight I can barely fit my hands in the pocket. Eventually realized one pair was made in South America, the other in SE Asia.

Someone told me before that Land's End has good QC now. I might try them next. My wife is fond of Eddie Bauer jeans, so I might try them as well.

@narfcake: how's the quality? I'd be willing to try a pair, if they're durable...

While i would Prefer something made in the USA, and not prohibitvely expensive, the problem i always run into is color availability.
I have to wear Black, or khaki for work, and most of what i can find that will fit my weird shapen body, isn't available in black.

so, i keep ending up w/ Dickies. Great products, Good Prices, made in mexico/south america, etc. but they always have my sizes and the colors i need.

My most recent round of pants purchases (some how lost enough weight i was walking out of my old pants), I happened to be on vacation near Ft.Worth, so we swung by the Dickies outlet store attached to their headquarters. they didn't have my sizes in stock, in black, there, but i could order them.
When i get home I find the Dickies pants i wanted, right color &size, on Meijer.com (that color size not avail. in meijer store), for less than direct from Dickies.

so a order and where to they ship from? Direct from dickies in Ft.Worth...

I like American Eagle and Bullhead (PacSun). You can usually find them on clearance, I've never spent more than $20 on any pair. I like the fit of both brands and they look nice longer than the Old Navy pair I have.

Carhart. They are well made and are tougher then nails. They have always been consistant for me and have always lasted for several years even with tough usage. They come in all sizes from normal to huge, for guys like me, and they have a multitude of color options. They also have flanel lined for outdoor work and logger cut that have an extra layer in the front for added protection. These may be a little overkill for your needs but they might turn out to be a favorite pair after you try em out.

'7 for all mankind' changed how much money I am willing to spend on jeans. You want to not start buying them and save yourself a lot of money.

Joe's are good too.

Faded Glory from Walmart.

Buy them on-line 2/ $18. + .97 shipping
Got 6 pairs 5 years ago, very little fading, no shrinking, no wearing out.
Still going strong !

Any that fit (or come close). For some reason there must not be enough people my size/height to warrant making them.

@narfcake: Can you compare them to other popular jeans? Levi's? Wrangler? I like that they offer a variety of sizes, but curious what I can compare them to first.
