I'm always on the search for the perfect basic jeans...right now my favorite pair are from Paige (the only thing I hate is that I have to wear a size up than I normally do for the best fit!)
I also have one pair from Earnest Sewn that I've lived in for months that are straight leg. I love that look, but I've had a hard time finding an exact pair. I'm going to search out Tsubi in a little while.
And I've also found that Gap makes great jeans for the price point. I got a pair of dark, Ultra Low Rise a little while ago and they're so comfortable.
Most of the time, I wear my jeans with cute flats, but I do like the look of tucking jeans into boots. Ocasionally, I'll put jeans with Converse, too.
For washes, I tend to go for medium to dark. I used to like light more, but lately, I don't see them working with the clothes I have as much.

Right now my favorite jeans makers are 45 RPM and Dior Homme...as much as I like the crisp, clean look of dark denim that seems to be emerging as a real force to be reckoned with, I personally prefer tastefully distressed jeans...(see what are you wearing today, the last 2nd or 3rd page...the jeans I'm wearing in that pic are my ideal kind of wash). At this point I HAVE to wear jeans that are extra long in the inseam and have a bunched up effect, I think that way of styling jeans looks so much cooler.

...I think straight legs sound good. I don't want an 80's look, so I probably wont do skinnies with sneakers. I'll see how it all looks anyways
^ I have read somewhere that the pockets are what makes it hard for true religion jeans to look good on everyone.
Though judging from their popularity, I don't think that really matters...I have a pair and my butt looks..ok
They are in semi-retirement now..I found them a little too "flared" even for straight-legs.
Oh and I love to wear my jeans too with belts, either on the waist or lower, especially with tunic tops. I think a Chanel chain belt with denim is just a very classic look..though of course it would be years before I can get one
I tried to fashion tops out of huge scarves before..but I think due to a lack of skill, it didn't quite work for me...ended up wearing it as a sash instead.
Love all my jeans... I've just got straight leg and skinny jeans in a range of washes and I dunno if it's just me but for some reason, greys and blacks look dressier??!! I dunno, if it's just my eyes or something... Hehehe...
I pretty much only wear them on lazy days, at home and to uni and I try to opt for something different when I go out so I don't get bored.
Also, I usually wear them with flats or flip-flops, especially when I'm around my friends because they're all shorter than me and I feel like a GIANT!!
I love skinnies! And boot-cuts or straight legs too. My jeans are allways dark-dark blue, mainly unwashed ones. My favourites are from Diesel, Levis, H&M and PartTwo (two lasts aren´t really jeans-brands, but they fit me great). I wear them with ballerina flats, fashion sneakers and different kind of boots. And 'cause blazers are my statements, I also wear jeans with them.
I wear jeans almost every day. esp. when it's Winter. I mainly wear Lee, Levis and h&m. I like them comfy. so very low waist as a no no. partly because of my tummy as well At the moment I like straight-legged and skinny the best. I bet the skinny ones are just a phase. But the straight-legged
I wear everything with them. Not too found of the dress over jeans combo though, normally that makes me look like a petite bag lady.
