    It is true for me. I love jeans and keep buying different brands that I like.

    I wear denim almost everyday. Call me boring, but nothing looks better on a butt than a nice fitting pair of jeans. :lol:

    Count me in as well. But instead of trying to buy every brand available out there, right now I'm on a mission to collect every single rinse, fabric, and colour in the huge universe known as Helmut Lang jeans :p .

    I think HL does the best jeans as well. Lately I've realized that Watanabe makes a perfect cut too.

    I'm not a jeans fanatic, but I think several pairs is good to have when you don't feel like dressing up.

    I missed the best pair of jeans ever! It was Levi's by Watanabe with the gothic purple letter "M" stitched out on one leg - they were truly amazing, but too rich for my pockets.

    I also like Hedi's jeans, but I haven't tried those on (I keep hearing that they don't fit anyone). Not that I'm a fan of paying $400 for jeans, though.

    Black denim seems to be trying to make a comeback, at least I am seeing new interpretations. It still has a lot of 80's rocker burnout connotations, though, at least in my neck of the woods. You see all these old speedfreak rock guys in black levi's and white sneakers with heavy metal haircuts...

    Not sure what you mean by overdye? Example?

    Love both, especially together! :flower:

    My favourite pair of pants is a black coated denim by HL....the polyurethane coating gives the fabric almost the appearance of matte leather, but without the discomfort (and expense) of the real thing.

    I completely agree with that. I probably own upwards of 70-100 pairs of jeans. I probably wear about 20 pairs of them. I wear jeans almost everyday. Right now I am really into PDC, they fit great, and they are stiff enough to cuff without them falling. I haven't bought a lot of jeans for spring yet, what are we all thinking about white denim? I have like 6 pairs of white jeans from assorted designer/brands (most recently 7 and Earl), but I don't know if the look is a little tired.

    i got so many plairs of jeans... and only wear them for a short period since most of them were compulsive buys :wacko:
    but every time a new hot denim make comes out i run out and buy at least 2 of them on the spot...

    so far though, only a stretch version of "for all mankind" is the ones i love the most and wear all the time :heart:

    im still on the outlook for a perfect black pair of jeans...
    i had bought one a few years nack. they are stretch EARLs, perfect fit but they are 2 sizes too big now.
    i need a 26 and cant find that exact style anywhere :(

    actually WHITE is fab for the summer... i just saw one today in CHLOE.
    just like the blue highwaisted ones but the difference being that they are low waisted and look sophisiticated.
    i got some white stretch EARLS that are absolutely a dream. perfect with any summery outfit ;)

    Funny you should mention that. I was *this* close to buying a pair of white boot cut jeans a few days ago, but ultimately resisted because the idea of white denim struck me as a little early 90's. Now, with the right ensemble it'd look perfectly fine, but I didn't feel like taking any risk - plus with that same money I could probably buy something more versatile and, more, shall we say, of the moment.
