If you’re like me, you really abuse your jeans. You wear them every second day, wash them a lot, spill stuff on them, wash them more… You get the picture. But are you sick of shelling out $100 every time you want to replace a worn our pair of jeans? I sure was. And this led me on a search for the most durable pair of jeans around. It was tough. There is a lot of crap out there. But I ended up landing on somewhat of a classic… That’s right, our most highly recommended pair of durable jeans are made by Levi’s! The Levi’s Men’s 511 Slim Fit Commuter to be exact. These are a pair of jeans that not only performs well, with high quality stitching and durable feature, but they also look really good and fashionable.
There were a lot of pairs of “tech fabric” jeans out there that seemed interesting. But for one, jeans from the likes of Outlier are unrealistically expensive. Furthermore, they don’t really feel like jeans. They are much more prone to snagging and pilling than traditional denim. That’s where the Levi’s 511 Commuter jeans come in. These are true denim. They are made of 82.3% Cotton/14.4% Polyamide/3.3% Elastane. The elastane is what actually gives these jeans the advantage over a lot of others. Basically they are adding in an elastic element to the pants. Aimed at bike commuters, this stretch allows you to have much more movement than traditional denim.
The Levi’s 511 Commuter jeans are also made of water-resistant fabric, giving you a little more protection from coffee spills etc. And if you’re an active type, the hydrophobic layer will make sure that dirt stains are a thing of the past.
And the best part of these pants is that they are pretty affordable. At under $100, you aren’t going to find a better deal out there on quality, durable pants. So, stop buying new jeans every 6 months and invest in a couple pairs of our favorite pants right now: the Levi’s Men’s 511 Slim Fit Commuter jeans. These gain our “buy it for life” BIFL recommendation and really are the most durable pair of jeans you can buy.
