Every year it's the same: I buy my son jeans. By February the knees are worn through. I try to patch them up, but it's a disaster. I give up, and my son wears ratty, torn jeans through the end of the school year. What the hell, jean makers? Why can't you make jeans that actually last a whole year?
I decided to turn my quest for durable kids' jeans to The Prowl and got some excellent recommendations there. And then I added a couple more I found. Here are the top six most durable kids' jeans I could find.
I've gotten Lands' End jeans before, and they've lasted the longest of the bunch. But their "Iron Knee" jeans are reinforced with an invisible polyester patch. They also have double-stitched seams for extra durability. And they're guaranteed for life, so if they do (somehow) wear through, I can demand a new pair. Kind of perfect, right?
