    Anyone know of denim jeans that last?

    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?

    I have had good luck with the tractor supply jeans. I have had a a couple pairs for 2-3 years and they look warn but not ripped or torn up. I use them pretty hard to. For the money you can't go wrong.

    Diamond Gusset jeans. They're 100% American made, the material is all sourced here, etc. I have a few pair that I've been wearing for 5-6 years doing farm and ranch work that are holding up well. Alternatively, I just had to patch a pair of one year old Wranglers last week.

    Sorry but I won't endorse those. I used to buy them all the time but the pockets fray at the openings too easily.

    Carhartt dungaree's is all that I buy.

    You could also try Duluth Trading firehose pants, they are supposed to be pretty good.

    You might try Eddie Bauer jeans. The denim is a little thicker but not bulky and if you can catch a sale, you can save of them. They are my go to.

    I regard jeans as a 'consumable' that have a finite life span...they wear out and I replace them. BTW, I am partial to Wrangler.

    +1 on the Wrangler Riggs with the tape measure reinforcement. They have a double knee version, too. As I get older, I find myself going to my left knee rather than bending over. Jay
