What do you recommend? I am speaking about good old fashioned blue jeans for working in or outdoor activities. Not concerned about any wimpy designer types or baggy lowhangin britches........just what are the toughest, longest lasting bluejeans? So far I have had the best luck with Levi's and Wranglers. Have some LL Beans too, but they don't have enough mileage on them yet to rate them. Had some other name brands that wore out very quickly.
