if the jeans looked nice before, why wouldn't they look nice now. fit is a key factor with jeans as is quality, and a lot of non "premium" brands have both in some or all cases.
it seems the orignator of the thread is getting a little too caught up in the whole mess of what seems to be designer jeans more than anything.
maybe the word premium just completely irks me.
I dont agree with this.
some time ago I had a pair of zara jeans and a pair I got at H&M, both had a surprisingly nice fit ande were cheap as hell. at some point I started getting some more expensive jeans, I bought a pair of Hugo's and Nudies, later on I wanted some unwashed ones so I got some 5EP's and APC's, and then I got my Diors a couple of months ago.
some time ago I took the zara and h&m jeans out of the closet along with a few other pairs I hadn't worn in a long long time, probably half a year and longer on some. I was like wtf, are these the same ones I considered a good fit a while back? to be honest they fitted like crap and I went running to my diors.
long story short; after wearing premium/more expensive and especially raw jeans I had gotten used to the perfect fit on them and the older ones were just terrible. this might not be the case for everyone but to some apparently.
