The Most Comfortable Jeans I've Ever Owned

The Most Comfortable Jeans I've Ever Owned

I’ve got to admit that I’m a bit of a denim snob. Its easy to get swept up in the ultra premium artisanal brands using denim loomed on the top of a mountain by a 300 year old monk. Still, when it comes to just pulling on a pair of comfy denim that isn’t some cheap mall brand there isn’t much to choose from besides the old Levis standby. For guys looking to break into the premium denim thing with limited means Blue Rise Denim is a great start. At $79 out the door they are actually more affordable than most when tax and shipping is included. Don’t let that price fool you, we’re still talking about beautiful details like ultra soft pocket bags, custom rivets, YKK zippers, and a real leather patch (not that cardboard junk). I think they’re a wonderful value.

–UPDATE— Blue Rise is no longer in business

Reviews of clothing, boots, and accessories for men, along with style advice and life philosophy. I’ve been working with my hands for my entire life as a mechanic, tow truck driver, and eventually a licensed electrician. Being a blue collar guy, I look for certain elements in a product: is it durable? Is it high-quality? Will it perform well over its service life? Whether boots, pants, jackets, or tools I believe it’s best to buy once and cry once by getting the best you can afford. With so many options these days, choosing the best product can become a difficult decision, but that’s where I come in. Helping you stay stylish, rugged, and handsome.
I don’t care where it’s made as long as it’s made well, and allows you to buy less and buy better.

    Has anyone bought jeans from barbell company? Want to try them out but just not sure

  2. J Gomez on May 25, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    Made in China 🇨🇳 they make awesome stuff eh… 😂

  3. Scott Roberts on May 25, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    J Crew jeans made with Japanese Kaiharu denim is an excellent choice, love mine

    I just recently found LAPG jeans that have stretch to them. I’ll never go back to regular denim again. The stretch material is so soft and it’s still pretty rugged. Best part is that they are like $30 a pair… you really can’t beat it!

  5. Dunkaroos on May 25, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    Hey bro I really like AG “the graduate” jeans for non raw non selvedge denim. Fits so good and has 2% stretch

    i hate stretch denim

    always have always will

    levis 501s fit well for me and are 100% cotton

    nothing beats 100% cotton in my opinion

  7. TIM HARDIN on May 25, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    Price being irrelevant, NOT…….LOL. Yes I can afford $100/jeans, but for casual wear and/or light work jeans, I AM NOT spending $100 on jeans. It’s just not in my DNA to pay extra for fashion. I work hard, play hard, and my family comes first, so I don’t dress to impress. Every penny saved can provide for a better life for my family. My work and work ethic will speak for me. As to jeans, I actually love Dickies and Wrangler carpenters. I actually find them so similar that I’ve often wondered if they’re made at the same factory. Both are of woven denim or in colors, they’re a light canvas. Stylish, comfortable, and crazy low priced (under $40)! Yes I have Carhartt and love them, but in the summer I sweat my rear off in them. All this having been said, I rec’d some Duluth Buck Naked underwear, and am now about to buy several of their clothing line. DULUTH: BEST UNDERWEAR EVER!

    Brave Star $98-$128 selvedge handmade in LA from Cone Mills and Japanese denim. Jeans, jackets, leather belts, etc. Good place to start for people who don’t want to drop $200+

  9. J A on May 25, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    Yea too bad there gone they look good

  10. georyans on May 25, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    The fly in your Levi comparison is you are quoting list price if you pay over $39.00 for a new pair of Levi’s you are not a good shopper

  11. Theespottedgiraffe _ on May 25, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    The middle section is apc

  12. Patrick Greene on May 25, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    When she said she wanted the jeans to "look" premium she lost me

  13. YEEETyonk on May 25, 2021 at 6:22 pm

    I am sorry but you it cost them $2 to make these.

  14. GeekRandom on May 25, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    I’m late to the party it seems

  15. klausadrift on May 25, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Bought two stretch jeans from Uniqlo. Absolutely now my most comfortable jeans. And if you are not into stretch they have also some fantastic selvedge jeans. Kicked myself for not buying earlier from Uniqlo. Never looked back.

  16. M&M Broder on May 25, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Can you do a review of round house slim fit jeans.

  17. Buffaloaf on May 25, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    Uniqlo is the best bang for the buck. They are selvage stretch for $50. But I got N&F those are pretty comfy for non stetch just gotta man up and treat them like a pair of boots lol.

  18. jcIsInURHouse on May 25, 2021 at 6:31 pm

  35. Adam G on May 25, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    I just want a pair of jeans like wear like sweat pants. I just took a 🔪 to a pair of $50 Levi’s cause they squeeze the butt area, a wide waist and wide legs. Like wtf?!?!?! What happened to real men’s jeans???

  36. CosmoSix5 PSN on May 25, 2021 at 6:46 pm

    You should put the companies closed on the beginning. Just waisted time. Get it? Waisted?

  37. Cris Yorke on May 25, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    Made in China junk

  38. Louie Yam on May 25, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Shawn looks like Stallone in the 80s

  39. David Rodabaugh on May 25, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    2 years late on this video and went and looked but they were sold out. I will have to wait. Thanks Carl for your work. I bought a Carhartt jacket because of you and love it. Thanks again for your quality videos and content!

  40. Jonathan Bellows on May 25, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    Alberto Pants USA the best!

  41. Courtland Reyes on May 25, 2021 at 6:50 pm

  42. GuSuBu Tribe on May 25, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    I Love to buy American made products.. Unfortunately I don’t Love buying American brands which are outsourced to China. Thanks for the video though, very well made and informative.

  43. P A Nair on May 25, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    Thank you Carl for some new product with the same clarity.Interesting & I wonder when & how I can lay my hands on one of these new jeans in India.

  44. furhan ullah on May 25, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    i dont know why u are even giving a lecture on jeans??????

  45. Jim Holmes on May 25, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    I bought a pair of mens Blue Mountain Jeans at Tractor Supply. They fit nice, but the dainty girly zipper Sucks.

  46. Carl Murawski on May 25, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    UPDATE: Blue Rise Denim has been sold off by their parent company. I don’t know if they’ll be back or not, but it’s really a shame. So you may ask why I keep this video live. The reason is that I enjoyed making it and I hope you enjoy watching it, even if the brand no longer exists.

  47. SuperPussyFinger on May 25, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    I’m thrilled to hear that I won’t have to see this guy’s crack.

  48. Freddy Fox 500 on May 25, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    I pay 25US$ for nearly new Levi’s 501. They aren’t great, but I can’t find anything that can compeed with that price. I wear the old ones in summer untill the knees are out.

  49. Kevin-Joseph Cruz on May 25, 2021 at 6:56 pm

    I love my Lee 101 Luke tapered Jeans.

    I love the stretch, the comfort, the looks, & they are the only pants that I don’t need to get altered. The inseams are just right. ❤️

  50. Aaron's Random Life on May 25, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    its easy to sell out when all you own is an idea………….
