    Had to share...

    Heading out for dinner wearing new jeans from Xmas. They're Gap stretch jeans and "Holy Cow! These jeans rock!" I commented to my wife and she casually said "Of course they're comfortable, women have known about stretch pants for years."

    Highly recommended guys...

    I have no idea what stretch jeans are? If these are the tight skinny jeans youngsters wear... uh no thanks. I assume these are 90% cotton and the balance is polyester and nylon.

    On a related note a few staff members got me more tailored GAP jeans & Ralph Lauren “fitted” jeans. Apparently, they disliked my causal, baggy, droopy drawer cheap shit sams or Costco brand jeans. In my defense fashion isn’t critical to me in casual seatings. I do have nicer jeans at home. But they took great delight in pointing out my geezer clothes.

    I ordered an Ocean Blue matching sweatsuit from walmart. Hoodie here. My kids are horrified. I'm on the look out for blue shoes. It was awesome. I just bought new overalls that are stiff as a board. My kids are horrified by that as well.

    I don't have any stretchy jeans. I'll have to check them out. I wear jeans and a polo almost every day.

    After you get to 60, all you care about is being comfortable.

    To each his own. My wife bought me one pair of the stretchy jeans. On the hanger they look just like any other jeans. I think I have worn them exactly once. Just not for me.

    Pretty sure that is maternity wear.

    Sort of the same intent, though... :)

    I have one pair that are stretchy and they're difficult to wear. When washed they fit but since they're stretchy they quickly get loose and even with a belt don't fit well. I like the concept...and love stretch in a dress shirt but I'm finding it less functional in pants

    I had a couple of pairs of stretchy jeans for back when I was a truck driver. I was also much more "round" then. I thought they were great, but they aren't for me now.

    I wear jeans with a bit of stretch in them. For anyone envisioning jeggings or stretch jeans that women wear that look like this, there is nowhere near that level of stretch in men's jeans. Its just a little. It allows you to wear a less baggy jean and not get your boys crushed when you sit down.

    I’ve been wearing stretch jeans with some stretch in them for quite a few years. I used to wear Levi’s 501/505 jeans but got to where they just weren’t comfortable anymore. I tend to buy Buckle’s BKE house brand. They’re cheaper than some of the bigger name brands but more expensive than Levi’s. The kicker for me is that they hem for free in store.
