I have had really good luck buying jeans at GoodWill and the Salvation Army stores. We found my son 2 new pairs of jeans for school this year. They met his "look" approval, too.

I also bought him a jean shorts and plaid shorts there, too. Really nice name brand clothes for under $4.00 each!

My older son usually gets his jeans at Old Navy. They last pretty long. Generally he outgrows them before wearing them out--but he does often get paint on them from helping at school stage crew.

My younger son isn't much into jeans yet. He'd rather wear sweat pants.

We usually get the boys jeans from Asda/Walmart the George range, they are really good priced and last. They are 2 each ($3.25 - I think)

Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you're going when your lights are dim.

Quite a few name brands also have the adjustable elastic inside the waistline which is undetected from the outside. My boys like it because it fits their unique body type and when they hand it down to the next sibling it will fit their unique body size perfectly as well with just a little adjustment. Plus I buy them on the longer side at first and as they grow during the year all they have to do is adjust the elastic to accomodate their middle growth as well. It's their favorite kinds of jeans. Most of them are the carpentar style jeans.
