Finding a nice pair of jeans seems nigh-on impossible for me. I can't be the only one surely? It seems infinitely more difficult to find a good pair of jeans than any other item of clothing. None of them seem to fit very well and the latest trend for ultra-slimline men's jeans has left me not being able to get my calves or quads through most of them!
I'm looking for some nice, smart jeans - dark blue, minimal distressed look, no frills, good cut, slim, but not so slim you can't get your manly quads through them. The kind of thing you can wear with a smart shirt and loafers. And preferably not costing a fortune (i.e. over £50). Moon on a stick or doable? Your recommendations please.
