Wow there are brand names here I have never heard of. Most of them in fact.

I wear whatever freakin' jeans I can find for less than $30 that actually fit me. Currently I don't have a pair that fit properly at all. Does anyone know how to find jeans that fit someone 5'9", waist 25", hips 37"? If they fit my hips, they are waaaay to big in the waist. Even low cuts. Low cuts that are too big on top are terrible, because a belt does not help. Believe it or not, the best fitting jeans I have right now are hand-me-downs from my son. ?huh? Still too big in the waist, but not nearly so bad as the women's jeans. That makes NO sense at all.

Although my daughter loves to pick at me by telling me I'm metro, even she admits that for outdoor activities I'm like most men. It's not about style, it's about comfort. Whatever fits comfortably and works well functionally. Cutting wood, canoeing, riding a horse all require pretty much the same wardrobe for a guy. Never worried about who made the jeans, just how they fit and felt to work in.

But I am giving serious consideration to checking out what it's like to ride in a hakama. They are very comfortable around the house. I have no doubt I'd get some funny looks from anyone who sees me riding in them, but no more than if I wore a kimono with them :)) Problem would be what to wear on my feet (boots would look way to odd). Athletic shoes would work. Or I could go all the way and find a pair of Jika-tabi. All that would just look to unusual for the US. I guess a shirt with straight tails to wear over the top of the hakama and athletic shoes would be the way to go.

Of course I'd likely find out that it's not as comfortable to ride in them as it is just wearing them. And at the dojo they don't look out of place like they would out riding a horse. Still, it might be fun to find out. :))

Another vote here for Q-babys. They are pretty much the most comfortable jeans for me to ride in because they do have a bit of stretch but not enough to get all bent out of shape. I also love that you can dictate what length you want, not just pick petite/average/long. I have to have a 36" inseam when I'm riding. Anything shorter rides up and twists around my legs and anything longer bunches up and causes me to bruise.

American Eagle 00 long in Artist, Boot Cut, or Favorite boyfriend. I'm built all funky..5'3" with long legs, little waist and a semi-big butt for a 100lb person.
I love the Cowgirl Tuff jeans and the Miss Me jeans, but I can't ever find any that fit right. Sucks.. So I stick with my AE jeans.

I am Sparkly Meanie Doodie Head and I approve this message!

Well said smrobs. I love my q baby's. The only problem is I have to drive 2 hours to get them... Nobody around here carries the certain q baby I fit into. Dunno why, but the one fit is just nicer... And finding a 36 inseam? Freaking impossible here

Katie, I feel your pain there. I have to drive 2 hours to a Cavenders to get mine. However, you can order them off the internet from either the Wrangler or Cavenders' website.

Even when I do make the trip to the store itself, I can very seldom find more than a single pair, maybe 2 in my size. A woman that wears a 3/4 with a 36" inseam isn't terribly common I guess .

I wear Charlotte russe (mall store) jeans to ride/work. I dont think I've ever paid more than $25 on a pair, they always have sales, and they're stretchy enough to ride in without being all loose and baggy when you get off.

I order them online when on sale from Shepler's.
I buy all clothes on sale/clearance except for shoes (hard to do) and online when there is free shipping. I HATE clothes shopping. Have better things to do, for example, be with my horses...

Because of an active youth in running sports I never developed "lady's hips". Women's jeans are always baggy where I should be curvy. Lucky me, men's jeans fit well and the best part is no need to try on - just grab my size and out the door. (I hate shopping for clothes as I wear anything from size 6 to 16 with the stupid sizing.) Wal-Mart's mens jeans in cheap brand wear well and the sizes are always consistent. Good old boot cuts.
