    Curtis: Sport Jeans (www.sportjeans.com) have been mentioned briefly in a few other threads. Well I decided to try them. Here is a summary of my experience with them so far.

    1) The price is $58.00. Sounds high, I know, for a pair of jeans, though these are made with a little more "engineering" than your standard issue pants. The refreshing part: It's $58.00 period. No outrageous shipping & handling fees like you get from many other web-based retailers.

    2) The sizes run a bit small. I ordered a 34x34, knowing they would shrink a bit, since the 34x34 jeans I own from other manufacturers are a bit loose on me. Well I tried them on and could barely get them buttoned, even before washing! The web site says "All sales final. No refunds. No exchanges." Well I sent the dude an e-mail anyway, and he agreed to send me a larger pair. He told me not to return the others, since he can't sell them as new once they have been worn. He made me promise to find someone else to wear them "for the advertising." Makes me wonder how Land's End and other clothing retailers deal with this. I know they have pretty liberal return policies.

    3) They are the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn, hands down. They are the first pair of pants I've ever seen that seem to be made by people who understand that a man's genitals are external. The front pouch is well-designed and provides adequate room for sensitive parts, even while sitting. I absolutely love wearing them! Other jeans, even "relaxed fit" styles, have that darn center seam that wants to cut my genitals in half every time I sit down.

    4) Button fly, no zipper. Makes a trip to the urinal a bit of a pain. I would much prefer a zipper.

    5) They are different-looking, and they will get noticed. The bulge created by the pouch is quite a sight when you're seated. Last night, while sitting on a stool playing cards, I noticed the two women in the card game giggling. One of them later asked if I had something stuffed in my pants! In the ensuing conversation, I mentioned the jeans and she said they look like they were specially made for well-hung men.

    6) Long term durability? Too soon to tell, but the buttons are suspect. There are suspender buttons on the inside of the waistband which most of us would never use, so at least I have a few spares if I loose one.

    The bottom line: If you find regular jeans uncomfortable, don't mind wearing pants with visible pouch, and can afford the $58.00, then you should give them a try. Buy them an inch or two bigger than your other jeans, both waist and length.

    Maybe it's just me, but it looks like Sport Jeans are designed more for display than comfort.

    I, for one, must have plenty of thigh room, as it is much more comfortable to let my dick and balls hang down the leg rather than to confine them in a pouch.

    I certainly get looks when I wear mine, so they are indeed good for display. On the other hand, some of this may be becaue they are just "different." They are actually fairly comfortable, although the pouch isn't really that big, nor is it really shaped to fit. In fact, if you hang to a good length soft, you will probably find there isn't anyplace to put it all. Perhaps becaue I have been hanging (no undies) down my left leg in jeans for so long, it seems weird to have everything cupped to the center.

    The quality of construction is slightly disapointing, considering the cost. After the first two washings, the stiching around the button holes unraveled, and had to be redone. The buttons also came loose, but I used this as an excuse to replace them with metal ones, the style found on Levis 501s. This makes the jeans look really unique. Overall, I would recommend trying a pair!

    Pecker,

    As everything is always confined in a pouch in my case (custom made jock, which holds me up vertically under my belt), your view is exactly the opposite of mine.

    The biggest mystery to me on this site is the number of well-endowed men who can cope with all that weight and bulk hanging down their legs, rubbing them sore and getting squashed etc. etc. Comfort for me requires support and room. I'm not sure why there is a difference.

    That's not to say I would risk wearing those jeans. If the pouch was big enough, they would look indecent; if it wasn't, they would cramp me. Catch 22.

    tott666: OK, those Sport jeans are plainly unsightly as far as I'm concerned. Very ugly.

    The design is just lacking. If they wanted to create bad taste porn jeans, they have a winner!!

    Clearly, they realised that size is needed. If it can't be had in the plain old model, lets create a new one!

    The result: disasterous. They need a real designer to help them make it work. Since jeans can be a number of things nowadays, there are so many ways to re-work them without that half-assed solution!

    7x6andchg: There is something about the cut of them that screams "1970s"...I imagine they could be quite comfortable, and bulge notwithstanding I don't know that I would necessarily want to wear something that looks about 30 years out of date. Just my 2 cents.

    I agree.  I've got skinny legs, and these jeans are plenty tight around my thighs.  I imagine someone in better shape would have a hard time fitting into them.

    More room in the legs all the way down would be an improvement.

    Pecker wrote, "Maybe it's just me, but it looks like Sport Jeans are designed more for display than comfort." I haven't been able to get around this dilemma. Anything I've found that's comfortable seems to create quite a display.
