I'm wondering where you get your jeans if you are approaching 40 or beyond?
I normally get Levis but I'd like to get jeans that maybe are a bit more comfy but also reasonably on trend.

Not Your Daughters Jeans (NYDJ) might be the thing.

I didn’t know they made jeans for the over 40’s market, must look into it.

Huh? Is 40 the threshold for when you have to start wearing 'slacks' or 'trousers' instead? I must've missed that memo!

I don’t think of age as the determining factor - just the look your after and body shape.  The cut of the jean is more important regardless of age

I head to country road, the store for ladies over 40 who like to be comfortable but haven’t completely given up. Yet.

Sportscraft do nice pants of various kinds, and jeans.

I used to wear men’s Levi’s before having children, and I’ve never loved their women’s jeans for my shape. Last year I tried on a whole lot of jeans and ended up buying Sportscraft because they fit nicely and were the right length - Levi’s were a good few inches too long in what was allegedly the same length.

I am 65 and wear the same brands as my daughters.
Age does not factor into my choice in clothes but comfort and look do.

I like Jeans West and Katies jeans.

I was thinking the same thing! I didn’t know it was a different category - jeans for the over 40’s woman ;)

In all seriousness, I think its more about body shape and personal tastes rather than age.

I'm in my early 50's but usually whatever fits.

I can finally wear Jeanswest again after many many years 😊

I’m short with a tummy but still reasonably slim. I like Danni Minogue Petites - they all seem to be high waisted which keeps everything in place.

I wear Target jeans, in an old unfashionable style (i.e. not skin tight) that majorly dates me.  My jeans are so old they've patches, and not in a fashion-cool way, but in a they are ripped through actually thinning of fabric with age and wear-and-tear way.  I clicked onto Dianalynch's Country rd and would've bought a pair if they had anything other than skin tight.

Whatever.

I have never liked the low rise jeans. Even when I was in my 20s, but even less as I get older. And I prefer them to cover my ankles.

Although last year I got a pair of jeans from Sussan and they have become my favourites. But usually I can pick up some jeans from Jeans West.

Target. I like the high waisted variety that are tight in the leg. So far I think I get away with it. Have tried others but resent paying $150 for no better fit.

jeanswest has gone into administration hasn’t it?

Id like to find something that doesn't have stretch.  Even Levi's are now super stretchy.  I need something to keep it all in, not let the bumps jiggle, no matter how comfortable.
I used to get jeans west, but last time i bought a couple of pairs they too had changed to super stretch.  I much prefer bootleg than any other style.   I do not have the figure for skinny jeans, as they say, fat girls shouldn't wear skinny jeans or leggings!

I wear jeans (straight leg) from Be Me. (plus sizes)
I can go and buy the same pair year after year and know they'll fit and look decent.

And I can get them on sale, I refuse to pay over about $60 for jeans.

I'm 50 and wear Guess jeans. Comfy, have a bit of stretch and still look reasonably fashionable.

I like the Trenery ones in every version except skinny and that’s just because of the shape of my legs.
I get them when they are on special as they don’t particularly date as they are just standard style. No holes (looking at you Susan) or weird bits.

Yes, I was able to get some stuff cheap when they were selling off stock before Covid, I don't know about now.. I've still seen them selling online.

Apologies! I missed the sarcasm tone. You needed the emoji wink in the first one!

I bought Guess jeans less than a year ago, and they have stretched and look awful now.

Oh sh*t. I turn 40 on Thursday.

I had no idea my jeans were about to expire. Thanks to this thread, I now have some leads, best hop to it.
