Men,

What are the manliest pair/brand of jeans out there? You know, the kind the working man would wear during a hard day of labor.


thanks,

OB

workwear brands like carhartt and dickies sell jeans.

The Wrangler Cowboy Cut jean is a classic, too.  They're less obvious, but built for daily work.  Riveted seams, high set pockets (so as not to interfere with the saddle), leg openings designed to be worn with boots, etc.

 

They really were designed BY working cowboys FOR working cowboys.

 

Carhartt is excellent, too, but focuses more on the building trades.  It all depends on the look you want.

Wrangler's goofs (and not bad goofs) are on sale $14 at the local hardware store.  That's my pick.
Khaki's.
I almost always wear Levi 501s. I have older pairs to work in, and newer nicer pairs that I can dress up a little bit if need be. I can't imagine myself ever getting tired of them.
Cheapies. Don't pay top dollar for a pair of jeans that's just gonna get dirty. However awkward fitting, Wal-Mart jeans are inexpensive and can take a beating if your work requires such jeans. Aim for something under thirty dollars for sure. I'm personally a Wrangler guy . . . when I wear jeans.
