The Blue Jeans Experiment… January 10, 2009Posted by Sean in : Fascinating!, New! , trackback
Today I went shopping at Costco and got a portable hard drive for my media files to free up space on my Laptop for installed programs. The drive is working out great BTW… While I was there, I browsed the clothing section for Blue Jeans and found some very good buys…
My curiosity got the best of me, so I decided to buy a pair of each and see if the higher priced jeans are worth the extra money. I suspect the major difference between these, are the cut and stitching etc..
My experiment will be to wear and wash each pair equally.. that is, if I wear the Kirkland Jeans for 3 days before washing, I’ll do the same with each other brand. *(readers, don’t worry, I usually only wear jeans 2 days before considering them “dirty”)
The end of the experiment will be determined by one of the following items:
- Comfort – A clear distinction in comfort will be the first clencher.
- Breakage – Hierarchically speaking, the last jean standing wins!
I also don’t want to obsess too much over this, so I decided not to add any more requirements to this experiment.. Happy experimenting!

I just threw all 3 pairs into the wash…!
So far, after the first wearing.. 2x for each pair, and several pairs of shorts later (to explain the last 10 days) I like the Calvin Kleins best, because of the overall fit. I like the Lucky’s second, but they’re a little too baggy, and finally the Kirkland Jeans third because they are far less “crotch friendly” as the others (I know, too much info, but it’s my blog and I can type what I want)

I have since tossed the Kirkland Jeans. For the last two years I’ve worn the Lucky’s and Calvin’s almost every week but always go for the Lucky’s first. All in all, even with the cost of the Kirkland Jeans factored in, I am extremely satisfied with the Lucky Jeans first, then the Calvin’s.
