When it comes to putting jeans to work (and I mean actual outdoor physical labor), you can’t get more bang for your buck than a pair of classic Levi’s 501 STF‘s. RD reader Michael from Michigan has worn these for over 2 years on the job whilst cutting trees and hauling wood and they’re holding up very well. What does he like best about them? That perfect not-too-tight but not-too-loose for work fit. Oh, and the price point. Keep choppin’, Mike!
