american eagle signature stitch ///

Being 6’4″, I prefer jeans with a 36″ inseam and those are a rare find, especially when it comes to the higher-end brands. So, for years, I kept it simple and opted for American Eagle. Their denim is easy on the wallet, fits really well (although I wouldn’t mind if the back pockets didn’t sit half-way down my leg, but AE doesn’t have a monopoly on that look), and they last forever. Then, I got a pair of Earnest Sewns as a gift. I absolutely loved them and started thinking that maybe there’s a reason people spend more than $50 for a pair of jeans. In the last year or so, I tried a few more premium brands and they were fine, but didn’t feel like they justified the 3 or 4x price difference. So, I stopped by an AE store yesterday and picked up a pair from their new Signature Stitch line (low rise, boot, dark rinse). In the meantime, I’m keeping an open mind on the pricier stuff.
