GREAT jeans in Walmart believe it or not!

Started 1317744199.35 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1318367424.27 by keep growing

Decided to have a mooch around the jeans in Walmart while I was grocery shopping this morning, and I swear they have fantastic jeans at a stupid price! Ever since Gap stopped making their low rise boot cut jeans in regular fit about 5 years ago, I have struggled to find decent quality jeans that don't cost a fortune. I'll spend my money on many things, but jeans isn't one of them, and generally I just find jeans shopping very depressing.

Well, I tried on the Lee ones and the Faded Glory ones in the low rise boot cut, and the Walmart brand ones were the best. Size 4 in dark indigo were perfect. And best of all, they were $12 - not on sale, that's regular price! Honestly they are worth a try and they do several fits, leg shapes and colours. Go for it - you never know ;-)

They used to carry the Levi Strauss Jeans, which is Levis cheaper brand and they fit great. I once got a pair for $5.00 and they were the best jeans I ever had, fit perfectly

Faded Glory jeans have gotten many good reviews here. What's not to love about a $12.00 pair of good fitting jeans in the color you want?

Last year a poster clued me in to ponte knit pants in black and gray that would have cost a fortune elsewhere. Top quality, and they came in my needed petite length. I think they were $12 or maybe $15.

I have about 3 pairs from Walmart too, I fit into most any jeans, so I just buy what looks good and at a good price. Another find is I have two pairs of Vera Wang capri jeans from Kohls. Both Walmart and the Vera Wang jeans have some stretch in them which I love.

I am from the Sassoon and Jordache era of "designer jeans" and can't get past they came from Walmart lol..I should know better but for some reason don't lol!!

Ironically Faded Glory was a brand from the designer jean era too!

I have bought my jeans at Wal Mart for several yrs now-the only complaint I have is that they seem to change styles every yr-I wish they would stick with the ones that are selling best but they don't seem to pay attention to that.

Love the Faded Glory brand. Great fit, and value.

I have bought a pair of them too, they last forever!

I bought a couple of white Faded Glory jeans last summer, but even their petite jeans are too long! {#emotions_dlg.crying}

When I had them altered, it changed the cut of the jean. And not in a good way.

2 - Not yet
3 - I have something better in mind

They're actually called "Signature by Levi Strauss & Co." and WalMart still carries them in the stores and online. I only wear Levi's - regular and Signature.:)

I believe it! You don't have to spend a million bucks to get a great pair of jeans.

Oh, how I wish I could get over my *over-priced* jeans addiction and fall in love with a pair that costs $12!! Good for you...I say grab a few pairs while they still have the ones you love! {#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

I wear the Levi Signature jeans from Walmart too. They come in petite (which I need) and fit me really well.

This summer walmart had fantastic polo shirts - fit, fabric, washed great, good colors. Maybe their quality is good for some pieces. I'm going to check out the jeans.

Lee's brand pants and jeans do offer higher waists, which I like and feel comfortable wearing.

My problem is that most jeans even "longs" are not long enough. I tend to lean towards the pricy brands so I can actually wear heels with jeans. I just moved and no longer have Nordstrom rack in Madison - bummer! If i could find a nice pair that was long enough at walmart i would celebrate!! Enjoy your find!

thanks for all the replies - love to share a bargain when I can ;-) The other thing they have which is great are those men's soft touch/sweat wicking polo shirts. Not only are they only $12 full price and they often have a style or two on sale, they're also made of 100% recycled material, which I love. I managed to get a couple on sale at $5 each - great stocking stuffers for hubby and son :-)

Wish they'd carry more "real women" style jeans! (a.k.a not low-slung, hip-hugger styles).

Oh, I see people wearing them, regardless of the woman's size, and Walmart even carries those up to a 3X, but come on - unless you're 9 ft. tall, NOBODY wearing a 3X looks great in jeans that rest 4" below your belly button. {#emotions_dlg.thumbdown}

Call 'em mom jeans or jelly beans - I don't care. What looks good on me looks good on me.

Yes, but those are sooo popular that unless I'm there the day they're re-stocked, seems they just evaporate!

Maybe I should check Walmart.com and see if they're online.

A couple of yrs ago I found a GREAT FABO pr of jeans @ Walmart - so great that I bought 4 pr of them! Still have them and wear often. These were Levi's slim fit - don't think they have them anymore but if you can find this cut, buy many prs!

I'm wearing a pair of boot cut jeans I love and bought at Walmart. So comfortable and love the wash. These were $16.00 and I like better than jeans for $325.00 that are faded and have holes.

They had a 4??? I've never seen a 4 in my store. I'll have to stop there today and look.

I'll NEVER wear Levi's again.
