(pantalones) vaqueros


Explanation:
This is what appears in the Oxford Superlex dictionary:

denim / "den@m / n
1 [u] (Tex) tela f vaquera or de jeans, mezclilla f (Chi, Méx); (before n) ‹
jacket / skirt › vaquero, tejano (Esp), de mezclilla (Chi, Méx)
2 denims pl (colloq)
a (jeans) vaqueros mpl, jeans mpl, tejanos mpl (Esp), pantalón m de
mezclilla (Chi, Méx)
b (overalls) (AmE) pantalón m de peto, mono m, overol m (AmL)

In Spain we would say "llevamos vaqueros" (though in some other parts of the country we would say, or "llevamos tejanos").

I attach a couple of links.

Un saludo.
