    A couple of budget options:


    Sears "Roebuck and Co." slim straight (around $18 and easy to find)


    H&M "original fit", $10 (no, I'm not kidding), though they ran a little bigger than other H&M stuff, so maybe size down one in the waist), also a little harder to find.

    @kmarizo Yeah, I emailed A Continuous Lean about adding Todd Shelton to the list but it seems they never did.

    I have seen some folks on Dappered.com talk about liking the Todd Shelton Made In USA jeans.... the 'American Dark' in the 'Watts' fit looks nice.

    I have a pair from Aeropostale that I wear just so I'm not always wearing the 501.

    @Ben


    Thanks, I've checked a similar, or maybe the same list before. Mostly pricey, but not enough to stop me. 7 For All Mankind offers many jeans made in the USA too.

    If you are in NYC I would suggest Uniqlo ($40ish) or Joe Fresh ($20 a great deal for dark fitted jeans) Personally I love my Levi 521's!

    The LEC straight for $12-$14 are a steal. Check out the 1-year and rinsed indigo. I like them more than my 514's.

    I love my Lee jeans. A little less expensive, but fit well and after being worn in become very comfortable.

    They have dates from the 1960's on them to warn you: the only people who should wear those jeans were born before the date on the pants.


    Ba dum tchh. I kid, but really.. Gap's jeans have a strange fit.

    +1 on Gap. If I had to buy another pair today that's what I'd go with (although not at full price). I hate that last year's jeans had some fray at the bottom. I'm not sure if they left that on the current line or not.


    Btw, what's with the 1960's all over the inside of these jeans? Such transparent pandering to a certain motif with Gap 1969 and LEC 1963.

    I like my Gap jeans. They have selvage and non-selvage raw indigo washes. I've got one of each, and while I like the selvage more, I'm not sure I like them nearly 2x more, which is the cost difference. I got them when Gap was having an in-store 40% off sale, so I was good with paying $50 for a pair that are normally $90.
