For many years I have taken great pride in wearing my favorite denim jeans until they fall apart.

The fashion now, of course, is to beat and rip the jeans at the factory before they ever appear on the store shelves. Who knew there were platoons of workers who did the actually jean bashing, to make the new denim appear old?

Not any more apparently. Levi's is now adding robotic lasers to "stress" the jeans to make them fashionably decrepit.

Safe for now: workers who use belt sanders to wear down the tread on new tires, to make them fashionably road weary, for SUV drivers whose pristine vehicles never cross a mud puddle.

Ridiculous.

If Levis can do that, perhaps they can engineer quality back in.

I recently bought three new pairs of blue jeans. Brand new and dark blue. They have been washed an dried several times and still are dark blue.

I remember back in the good old days when we were the target demographic.”o)

I prefer my jeans to last. A while back Laker linked a U.S manufacture that makes them closer to early Made in USA jeans. Levi and Wrangler are showing signs of deterioration buy the time these are just starting to break in.

I remember back on the day my break in process was simple.

I would put on my new Levi's and then jump in the pool and swim around a couple times. The jeans would stretch and soften up form to a perfect fit for the remaining life.

In the early and mid 70s I wore Sedgefield Jeans. They were kind of a Levi's 501 knock off but better quality. Always a perfect fit and true to size. I began wearing 501's when these went away. Sadly only the name remains and I never see any jeans by them in the stores.

I'm a 501 guy but sure don't get the life out of a pair of Levi's that I used to.

I've seen some women with some holes in their jeans in rather provocative places lately. Many look like they spend a lot of time on their knees as well. :~O

Ethical means quality, LEVIS are neither.

I remember as a teen cutting off the very bottom of the legs of jeans so they would fray. When the knees would eventually tear open then the jeans became cutoffs.

You guys with a Costco membership should check out Kirkland jeans. Inexpensive and got me away from Levi's after decades of nothing but.

These days I wear shorts about 360 days a year but I still have some Kirkland jeans for those other 5 days.

If other jeans makers such as Carhartt would replace the zipper with buttons, we might make a deal. That and get rid of the PeeWee Herman waist line.

I love to spend big money on authentically fake things.
