Shit that lasts: Levi’s.
This one is going to be short and sweet. Jeans. Everyone should own a pair. Notice I said A pair. Not five, not ten, but one pair of jeans. They should have straight legs, a normal wash, and no crazy ass-art or flaps on the pockets. If you’re a guy, when someone says the word ‘jeans’, one word should come to mind: Levi’s. Good ole, ‘Merican Levi’s. Sorry cowboys and fans of Dale Jr. and Brett Favre, Wrangler’s just aren’t the same anymore.
It doesn’t matter what Levi’s you get, they all kick ass. Well, except for those super skinny hipster jeans they make. I’m sure they last a long time, but they look really dumb. I prefer the Levi’s 559 Relaxed Straight jeans. Straight legs, not too baggy, not nut-hugging, and they don’t cost $150. I’ve been wearing the same pair of 559’s for almost 3 years now. Granted I’m not one to wear jeans on a daily basis, but there have been times when I would put them on and not take them off for a week or so. They’re tough, look good, are nice enough to wear to the “fancy” bars, and casual enough to do whatever the hell else I want to do in them. Do I really need to say anything else? They’re jeans. Jeans are jeans are jeans. But Levi’s are the ones you want to buy if you want shit that lasts.
