I don't know about the rest of you, but I've 'had it' with Lee, Levi and Wrangler jeans. I can take a new pair and within a dozen washings, or less, the knees and fronts above the knees are out of them. I'm not a tradesman but a retired handyman who occasionally kneels for personal home fix-it projects. I've tried Duluth Trading Company's fire hose pants but find them too hot to wear in warm weather. Does anyone make denim jeans that last? Even better at a reasonable price?
