  • I think the most ive paid for jeans was $50. Do they do dishes and babysit your kids for you if you want a night out?....lol For that price they better come with some jewelry in the pockets!

  • I don't know- at this point, if I could find a pair of jeans I were really, really happy with, I would pay that much!! Jeans are something that can last a long, long time. So, yes, If i liked them, I would pay that much.

  • OMG...they are just jeans. They are denim. They probably look like jeans you could buy at Walmart. Don't ever beleieve the hype about "FAshion" and don't fall for the "snob appeal". Wearing expensive jeans will never make you "special". It will just make you look like a gullible fool.

  • They are awesome jeans! And they will last forever!

    To the pp who clearly has serious issues, I'm sorry but walmart jeans definitely don't look as good as more expensive jeans. I want to look good in my jeans and that is personally why I pay more. You continue to buy your walmart jeans and try and not worry what everyone else is spending on their clothes.

    To the original poster, Get them on ebay, you will pay half the price if not less :)

  • Try MEK. They are a boutique style premium denim. The price ranges from $125-$160 usually. The Buckle carries them if you have that store near you. Otherwise you'd have to look online to find someone that carries them. I worked at the buckle and ended up with about 11 pair. I LOVE them. Great jeans just a little less expensive than the true religions.

  • Also, the Buckle (if you have one) has free alteration and repair in-store for the life of the jean. I ripped the rear in a pair last week and even though it's crazy holiday season they were ready by Thursday!

  • Find them at a discount. My BF just bought some for my goddaughter for Xmas and she paid $112; the most I've seen them for is $250, so shop around.

    Don't know if they're worth it or not though, can't help u with that.

  • I can't imagine any article of clothing being worth that much. Aside from a good coat that will last 20 years or something... I am a very frugal shopper. We wear mostly name brands, but I never buy anything full price. I wait for sales and try to have coupons on top of that. I think the most we have ever paid for a pair of jeans is maybe $60 for husband's, and even that killed me!
