I wore Levis 501 jeans for years until I discovered Wrangler unwashed 13MWZ. I bought two pair and use them for working on my place mowing and cutting firewood...sometimes under overalls. I like the longer rise and softness of the denim after maybe a half dozen washes. I am not a cowboy although I wear Justin pull on work boots. What I like is the tapered cuff. It's quite unique to have a pant wide enough for boots that tapers so that the cuff does not get dragged into the mud. I use them with my Dr Martens and they are great.
