Men's jeans

12
Posted 12th Jan
I'm after men's jeans. The ones I have bought in the past always thin out and then get holes in the crotch.

Does anyone have suggestions for where to get some at a good price that will last?

Crotch blowout can be avoided by walking like John Wayne. That, or just take smaller steps.
Just buy el cheapo supermarket brands, they're really cheap, so when they wear out, don't sweat it and just buy more!
Part of the reason for lightweight jeans getting holes is washing denim in a high cycle and then using a tumble dryer. Whilst hardwearing, Denim Jeans shouldn't be washed unless required as technically it defeats the point of the material and usage. Any dirt should be dried and brushed off. Of course if you are going to wash denim use a low speed spin (denim or hand wash setting), and only use a tumble dryer( if at all) at the quickest setting and turn the denim inside out!

Today the fashion is lightweight, tight jeans which are less resistant to rubbing, washing and especially wear and tear. So either purchase Heavyweight (14oz or much higher), and/or raw Denim Jeans or the winter versions of jeans without any additional material i.e. Elastane.

Somebody with better knowledge should provide more detailed and accurate information.

I don't own a tumble drier but do use high spin. I can't imagine denim ever drying on low spin.

When talking about low spin usually this is a washing machine, although in our household before tumble drying we usually do an additional quick spin cycle (14 minute) to reduce excess water. When I talk about low spin setting this is normally 800 RPM or less, but with newer models a hand wash is mimicked by the machine. Unfortunately new washing machines have 1200, 1400, or even 1800RPM settings, but the problem is that the drums lack sufficient suspension for stability and balance (to which I've found to my detriment).

I actually misread your original post and now realise you originally meant high temperature on the washing machine.

I usually wash on 30.
If you by chance have the opportunity visit a specialised Jean Shop or if not a Department Store to see the difference in size, fitting, material, weight and prices of the branded jeans. No two jeans are the same, especially ones manufactured and cut in China, and Bangladesh! Ordering online can especially be haphazard, but if you are after a bargain wait for the Sales (common sense) but websites such as Levi's* continually sell older stock for half-price (don't forget the discount codes and Quidco / Topcashback), otherwise find a local Factory outlet store.

My preferences used to be the more traditional Levi's 501, but now prefer 511's for it's closer cut.
If you are willing to pay for quality then look at brands like Nudie.

For mid-range then Levi or G-Star are usually good. Also Uniqlo.

But for cheaper I personally don't find H&M too bad.

Or by simply not scratching one's nads all the time.

That's not an option
Have to agree with Nudie, they also do a 36inch leg which not a lot of people sell.

They also have their up to 50% off Sale on at the min if that’s any help
