Ladies, where do you buy your jeans?

I have been trying to replace my special pair of jeans for nearly 2 years, you know the favorite pair that you wear threadbare and then kick yourself for not buying two pair. I've looked at all the places where I get my other clothes but no luck. I'm specifically looking for a lighter wash, boot cut or flare (not super wide), casual, with patch pockets or slant pockets in front, no weird embellishments like big tabs, buttons, creases along the front, whiskers, etc. Nothign vintage or boutique, just a plain pair of jeans for fucks sake!! Size 2-4 (USA) possibly tall/long, depends on how they are sized.

I've tried Gap, Lucky, Old Navy, True Religion, J Crew....

Recommend me some shops/brands. It's hard to go almost 2 years without a jean brand loyalty

I would not be surprised if you bought your groceries on eBay!

I've been looking there forever and have a major headache. Watching two pairs that I want but aren't what I need, lol. I type in what I want and it gets 0 finds so I let eBay change the search and I get hundreds that have nothing to do with what I want (like, a jean skort for a baby, lol).

Yeah, since there are tons of jeans on ebay you need to refine your search and also try multiple search keyword combinations. Like I would search for myself 'low rise flare jeans 2' and then next search change the 2 to 4 or put in a brand name, etc. And make sure once the search results come up to choose 'womens' on the left hand side, so you dont get the baby stuff.

I buy mine at Jeanswest, but I think they're only in Australia.

I buy most of my jeans at a local consignment shop that has awesome stuff. My current favorite jeans are J. Jill and I like them because they're not too low-rise and not the old high-waisted mom jeans, either. I also had a pair of the Gap jeans that were my absolute favorite pair until they finally died a holey death. I think they were called "long and lean," which was weird because they were more of a boot cut.

I'm short so I have to watch for the petite sizes or ankle length. I love the low-rise jeans because they fit so easily on me ... but I struggle to find shirts long enough to cover up the muffin top.

I haven't been shopping for new jeans in a while - I should go look around and see what's out there. Surely there's something in between the ultra-high rise and the low riders out there these days.

New York & Company, Express, & GAP

I prefer NY & Co., because their prices are cheaper than the other two. I only go to the others because they have more of a selection than NY & Co., even though they can be really pricey.

I'm addicted to Level 99s but they're trendy. I just bought a 4th pair from Bluefly - Designer Clothing, Handbags, Shoes & Accessories (Prada, Fendi, Gucci & more) at Discount Prices in the same size I always wear but wow, they must have changed the sizing because they are suddenly too small. Ha.


ETA: Sorry that url address is so long - I just typed blueflydotcom and that's what it turned out to be.

Pearl, I like NY&Co, but have trouble finding stuff b/c their stuff is always so...I don't know how to say it, but it's like each pair is totally different with big flares or huge pockets or buttons...I just want yer basic pair of jeans. I do get plain chinos from there though.

Go to Marshalls and browse the jeans racks there. I found a pair of Seven Jeans(best.jeans.evar. ) for $30!

For my "casual" jeans (so stuff I'd wear around town not going clubbing or anything like that), I almost always buy Silver jeans. They fit me well, have enough styles/washes, are ok priced for that sort of thing.

I also like Diesel, but they are a bit pricier.

I have another pair I like from Express, but the stitching on the pockets and seams irritates my skin and drives me batty. Plus, those are a little longer, which means I have to wear them with some type of heel. For looks, that's awesome. For comfort, not so much.
