You need to find out some very important things.
first and foremost are they 100% natural indigo??
Second are they hand made?
Third what kind of fabric are they using?
We already know they were ade in France so for that they should owe you money...lol
If all those questions come to your approval then get them if not spend your money on some KMW , 45rpm, or Guilded AGE ( natural indigo and handwashed)
Those are my thoughts.
It's cool to buy into luxury brands my business is based upon that but know what you are buying so you dont look like a sucker.
Thanks... those are good questions to ask. All I know is the label on the jeans said "organic cotton" but that doesn't mean a whole lot... the only reason to get them would be for the exclusivity factor. I was at Tysons Corner today and if I had a nickel for every pair of Sevens or Citizens of Humanity jeans I'd be rich! Well, not exactly, but I'd have like an extra dollar or two.
So does Denim Bar carry 45rpm or Guilded Age? I know you have KMW because I bought two pair in your Arlington store!
I guess 45rpm has some licensing issues that preclude you from carrying that brand? I have had my eye on some KMW Raw Rockers so that would probably be a better option than HermÃ¨s jeans... the HermÃ¨s were actually reminiscent of the Rockers... I mean, high-end jeans are high-end jeans and there's not too much difference between a $200 pair and a $400 pair, and this $750 pair. Now if you really
want exclusivity, you have to move up to the next level, four-figure jeans -- which would require a visit to the Rampuya shop in Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture in Japan -- for a pair of Japan Blues (which are woven on antique shuttle looms and hand-dipped in natural indigo.)
