I am hard on my cloths. Really hard on them-- I work in an art dept often fixing old, dirty stuff or playing with chemistry. Unfortunately, I also have to look presentable for meetings or classroom time.
Levis were my go-to but their denim seems to get cheaper and cheaper -- its now very easy for me to put a hole in em within 6 months.
So before I go back to buying Carhartts and Dickies , what brands of jeans offer a quality (heavy) denim w/out the construction worker look?
