The cheap Wranglers ($17 at WalMart) work fine for me. So do Levi 501s. Never had a problem with seams rubbing regardless of saddle type (2 English, 2 Australian & 3 western). Maybe I have wonky legs, or maybe I just ride wonky.

Sorry I can't help. I like riding in shorts and half chaps when I ride English. Just plain shorts in my western saddle. They do sell riding jeans with a knee patch, but i haven't seen any recently.

I ride in regular jeans a lot. Can't justify spending $100-$200 for riding breeches made out of denim that don't fit right. They must fit someone, but not me.

My favorite are Levi's Signature stretch jeans; Walmart $19.97 each. They are thin, very stretchy, and cheap. Perfect for riding in the south, plus I've been wearing Levi's since...well lets just say a VERY long time

@loosie , I used to buy them for $14.88. They have slowly gone up in price:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Wrangler-...Jeans/37611904

They are the lower grade Wranglers. Thinner material than the good ones, but also half the price. I find half the price gets me 3/4 of the wear, so that is what I buy. As a rule, when looking for my wife, it seems anything marketed for women costs more. But I just looked and Walmart has a variety of women's jeans for $20.

In honesty, my lack of problem may be rooted in my being a bit of a slob rider, riding more by feel than by rules of equitation. My legs go wherever they feel like going, which may include doing whatever is needed to keep the seams from rubbing. An old back injury seems to show up in my riding a bit twisted, but I've been riding Bandit for 4 years and he has long since ceased to care - if he ever did. My left leg and foot and probably body are always a bit twisted when viewed from head on...but riding the same horse all the time means he accepts what I do, just as I accept his oddities. My goals for equitation can be summarized as staying on while not interfering with his motion. If I aspired to be more, maybe my legs would start rubbing:

I buy the lighter weight, stretchy jeans that fit really tight for riding. I buy them on sale when they're 50% off, so I rarely pay over $25/pair and they usually last me 2 or 3 years, depending on how many pair I have to rotate through. No particular brand recommendation, I just buy whatever's on sale and wear them til they aren't wearable any more.

bsms, Your riding style is like mine- except I call it "point A to point B while staying on still." lol
I don't have the pain and twisting issues yet, thankfully.
And those jeans you mention from Walmart are some of the only ones that easily fit my husband, as they keep the inseams shorter while still being 28-29 waists. Nutty how hard they are to find at those proportions!

OP: I second/third the Q baby jeans. I used to have issues with bad thigh rubs from the seams. They pretty much rubbed up my entire leg. Until I bought a pair or 2 of the Q baby riding jeans. They removed some of the bulk in their seams. I don't think it has cut down on the wear-life of the jean itself, as the denim is quite thick still. I am not thick or thin, size wise, but I do think that the thinner seams have helped!
The elastic on the waist helps to keep them tighter to me as well, preventing plant matter going down my back as well. And they don't slip down as easily.
I tried English breeches, but the chaps won't go over western boots very well, and I got tired of crap down my boots from riding in the trees and brush. Plus there isn't as much skin protection in said trees either!

I have been riding in full seat jeans from Trail Rider Jeans for several years now. One pair has over 500 miles on it. I have never had them chafe or rub me. There is no crotch seam. The jeans have no sign of wear except that the button hole needs a bit of patch work.

They are the most expensive jeans that I ever bought. In the long run, they are the cheapest jeans that I ever bought. They are just not wearing out. Period. They also give me a secure seat. One trip to the emergency room would more than buy these jeans.

I also have thicker legs. I have a pair of jeans that are strech and almost like a breech made of jean fabric. They are comfortable, don't rub, chafe, and they move with you. I got them at a local Fleet Farm store, only $30, they are Gloria Vanderbelt brand, boot cut jeans.
