@gabe , if you'd enjoy a deep dive into the world of denim, may I submit for your consideration, my blog post on "Denim Umami." Meanwhile, here's the VERY short list.
  1. 1.
    Levi's 514: indigo
    Go with everything. Look great. Cost under $50.
  2. 2.
    Levi's Made and Crafted: Ruler fit. Indigo.
    Go with everything. Look great. Three times the price.
  3. 3.
    My suggestion: try a pair of each. If you can't tell the difference, go for regular Levi's. Use the saved money for a month's worth of burritos.
