Actually, you guys are forgetting one very important thing, which is that the currency buy and sell rates are different from the actual conversion rate. On top of that, most banks or credit cards charge a fee for currency exchange, and you are looking at a much less favorable conversion rate than 0.0083. And then there are the middleman fees to take into account. I would say that the prices would therefore be about on parity for the high end jeans, and considerably cheaper at BIG for the lower end jeans (say, John Bull Chop Sews) if all that is taken into account.
