How much are you willing to spend on the perfect pair of jeans?

My sister in law just bought an amazing pair of True Religions that make her butt look amazing. She paid $285 at Holt Renfrew, which seems obscene, but for the way they look it almost makes sense.

I tend to scour sample sales to try to find jeans on sale.

How much are you willing to spend?

I have spent about $100 on jeans although I saw these Rock n Republik jeans that I adore and want but I cannot justify the $300 it costs! If I made more cash though I may splurge one day... I say if you would spend $300 on a dress then why not the jeans because you would likely get A LOT more wear out of them. But for now...I will stick to my mediocre priced pretty good looking/fitting jeans! :o)

I think the most I've ever spent on jeans was $50 + $15 for hemming. And $50 is rare. Most of the time, I spend about $30-40. Since I always have to pay for hemming, my $30-40 jeans really adds up to $45-60.

Perhaps that's why I have so many pairs of duds in my closet. :P

The most I've spent is probably $60. I've never had to pay for hemming, even though I'm short (5'2"). I usually just settle for nothing but petite jeans so they'll be short enough ... and even then they're sometimes a touch too long. My $60 jeans last me ~4 years as long as my size/shape does not change. :-P I've gone cheaper, like Old Navy, and those just do not last very long ... can maybe stretch 2 years out of them.

I have to hem everything :( on Dec 25, 2007 @ 01:19 pm

I'm barely 5 ft tall. Even petites are too long for me. It bites!

The only place I'd spend $50 on jeans is from AE. I really like their jeans and the 2 pairs I've bought from there lasted me 3-4 years and I wear them all the time (I wear jeans to work). They are great!

My problem with buying really expensive jeans is that I find sometimes I just don't like what I buy...after I've worn them a few times and I can't return them anymore. I'm worried that if I go spend a lot of money on jeans, I'd end up wasting them because I decide I don't like them after a few months.

...c'est moi! Although I come from a middle-class family, we are all a bunch of cheapskates (and I say so with pride). I have considered jeans over $50, but have yet to commit. Then I stand in front of my shelf full of Old Navy and Lee, cursing that nothing really fits.

Yeah, I've got it all figured out! In my head, I know an investment pair or two would pay off in the long run, but my Scroogy fingers won't open my wallet wide enough to let more than 2 Andrew Jacksons out. Being a stay-at-home mom means it doesn't really matter anyway. :)

$168 on Dec 27, 2007 @ 11:03 am

I just splurged yesterday because I found an amazing deal. I have been lusting over Citizens of Humanity since I first tried them on several years ago but was not willing to spend the $230ish price tag. Yesterday in Ottawa I found a sale at Trust Fund:

I found a gorgeous pair there marked down to $168. If you are in the Ottawa area I recommend you check out their sales now!

I pay stupid amounts for good jeans on Dec 28, 2007 @ 09:04 pm

I paid $245 + tax for one of my JBrand jeans, and $225 + tax, and I got the other massively on sale for $150 + tax. I find it's the only brand that really fits me, is comfortable, and looks exactly like I want them to. They actually make the waistband big enough without making the butt and legs too big - most other brands (especially Mavi - I hate Mavi for this reason) make the waistband small, and the legs too big, as if we're all boys or something. I don't like a waistband to dig into my hips.

I would love to be able to spend alot on jeans, as I wear them daily, but don't make enough to be able to spend it. And I am short so it is really hard to find ones that fit well. I tried on over 10 pairs of jeans this week and bought nothing because I was not willing to pay for hemming after spending $90 on jeans. Plus with the boot cut or baggy bottoms they end up being too wide in the rest of the leg, and ther eis nothing they can do about that...

I guess I will have to stick to old navy jeans until I can marry rich!!!!

I haven't get owned a pair of $300 jeans. But I will some day! I think it is worth the investment if the jeans are more of a classic look.. not skinny or wide. If they fit and flatter your body really nicely, then why not?

I still wear jeans that I bought when I was 14. I can' t believe they still fit me... yet they are falling apart as we speak. They're also flared jeansss lol! And they are Parasucos who still wears those these days now... flared and Parasuco LOL

On Jeans... on Jan 30, 2008 @ 06:49 pm

I think definitely depends on how often you wear it. I think if you wear them everyday. You would probably get two haha. Jeans last much longer and tougher to wash anyway. I think that i ripped my old jeans easy because I was just getting fatter and fatter and stretched them beyond their limits.
