These jeans let me work.
Any article of clothing, no matter how well made, can prevent you from working if they hinder your movement. If you wear your jeans from house to the car to the office, your range of motion is relatively short, and you are unlikely to experience any discomfort. Once you start seriously moving, you may suddenly become painfully aware of the fit - or lack of it - of your jeans. And it can slow you down.
Besides getting your jeans custom-made, in order to find the perfect fit, you have to try on pair after pair, going through trial and error. Alternatively, you can scour the Internet for recommendations from those who have similar body dimensions. That said, if you’ve got muscular legs like me, then these may be the jeans for you.
Jeans that allow you to work do not bind when you squat down to take a measurement, do not cut into your stomach when you bend over to pick up a tool, and do not pinch your thighs when climbing a ladder. In other words: they fit. Like these do for me.
Oh, and did I mention they required no break-in time whatsoever? Pretty impressive for 17oz raw denim.
