Personally I used to wear tight jeans. American Eagle, Hollister, Bullhead, etc. jeans. I was too embarrassed to wear "mom jeans" when I rode. But going to the university we are required to wear riding jeans. Now I love love love my cruel girls! I don't care if they are mom jeans I wear them around campus with pride. I will never ride in another pair of "tight" jeans again.
I am curious to see what kinds of jeans other people wear when they ride.
Levi 501s. Or the $15 Wranglers at Wal-Mart, to save money.
Maybe it helps to be a guy... Or to be at an age where I don't need to worry much about anyone staring at me. Between my girth, bifocals, farmer's tan & wrinkled face, I doubt much attention goes to my jeans!
I'm also a big fan of silver jeans, for some reason they're the only ones that seem to really fit me. I try not to submit them to barn abuse until they bee sufficiently worn out. Then I slap some patches on the worst of the holes and retire them as barn jeans Posted via Mobile Device
I rode in Wranglers for as long as I can remember - until a few years ago when I needed a pair for some ranch work and didn't have an old pair of Wranglers to use.
I happened to be at Sam's Club and they have their own brand of jeans that sell for ~$13.00. Best jeans I've worn in a long time and they are every bit as heavy duty as Wranglers - hold up better too. That's all I use now. (Not the same as they sell at WalMart)
