I just... theres no way... I cant even fathom being that filthy disgusting dirty.
Do you wash your shirts?
To clarify my size point. I just tried on 4 pairs of jeans yesterday that were all 34x34. One was tight and short. Two had an extra two inches on the waistband at least and enough space for about 50 lbs of belly. The last one was baby bear (just right). Two were slim and two were "regular fit". None of it made any sense.
Thats a great idea for a size/fit of jeans...lol
"New Levis Baby Bear fit... theyre JUST RIGHT!!"

wearing raw denim jeans for 15 months straight without washing them doesn’t pose any health risks for healthy people, according to a student-professor team that tested a pair of those jeans at the University of Alberta.
But when Le and assistant human ecology professor Rachel McQueen swabbed the inside of the jeans and tested them for bacteria in December 2010, they found levels pretty normal. And after Le washed the jeans, then wore them for 13 days before re-testing them, bacteria levels were nearly identical.
Another note: Most clothes odors are caused by bacteria. If the bacteria is at a normal level then the odor should be as well. And, even if it does smell bad, there are other ways to control odor besides washing.
In regard to some of the designer brands or selvedge denim, a lot of jeans won't provide the length. They're usually made a bit long because some people like to wear them with a cuff and you're expected to get them hemmed to fit you. The waist size should be standard, but the thing you really have to pay attention to is the "fit" of the jeans. For example, if the type of jeans is listed as "skinny" or "slim" fit than they will be tight fitting all over your legs even if the waist size is correct. Usually if you purchase your correct waist size in a "straight" style fit, they should fit like normal, but again, they might be too long depending on your height and could need to be hemmed.
You're right of course. Designer jeans are typically 34 inches long regardless of the waist size. You need to get them hemmed.

I hear what you're saying and I certainly understand your point of view. But think of it this way, most people wear the same winter coat everyday and many people never get their coats cleaned ever, let alone once a month. Or an even better analogy, would be your winter gloves. You wear them on your way to work/school and then take them off and go around touching door knobs, shaking hands during the cold/flu season and at the end of the day you put your hands back into those gloves when its time to go home. Again, most people don't wash their gloves regularly if ever. Would you consider those people to be filthy and disgusting? The problem is a lot of people think all jeans are the same, but you need to consider the material that is used to create them. Selvedge denim is extremely thick and sturdy. Similar to leather goods, you just don't need to clean selvedge denim every time you wear them.
I do wash my shirts, socks, underwear, etc after every wear, but again, the big difference is the fabric or material used. Selvedge denim just can't be compared to the cotton that's used for shirts, socks, etc. I've been in hot cars or crowded elevators with friends that were wearing selvedge denim that hadn't been washed in months and you do not smell anything. It's just not an accurate comparison to someone that wore the same shirt, socks, or underwear for months without washing.
Personally, I say to each their own, and if washing your jeans after every wear makes you happy, then go for it. The reason I brought this up to begin with is because it was clear from the comments that a lot of people aren't familiar with selvedge denim and how to care for it. Some people don't know there is a difference and wash them immediately after buying them and then never develop markings or they purchase selvedge denim and don't understand why its so stiff and rigid.
