I just looked them up online, NOSH*T...$185, for that kinda money not only should it make my ass look incredible, they should get me laid without attempting a pick up line.
$130-$225 is about the going retail price for a pair of premium jeans these days, with the $130 being the most basic Sevens, the Wrangler 47 jeans and some GStars and Diesels, and 225 being for super premium American brands like Rag and Bone, high end imports like Nudie (designed in Netherlands, made in Italy of Japanese denim), and the more sophisticated washes by high end American makers like Paper Denim, Earnest Sewn and True Religion. Â There are, of course, outliers. Â Japanese cult brands like Evisu, Denime and 45RPM start at around $300 and go upwards of $100 for a bespoke pair, and democratic A.P.C.s are a reasonable $110 for a raw denim jean that blows most of the more expensive competition away. Â This is not new news. Â Even Abercrombie and Fitch offers a range of jeans at about $125 in their high end Ezra Fitch line now. And while most guys are not wearing $300, or even $200 jeans, look around any college campus or any middle class community in which jeans are common streetwear, and $100 Lucky or Guess jeans are commonplace on any guy under 35, with the more fashion conscious guys usually sporting Sevens and Paper Denims. $150 Citizen of Humanity and Seven jeans are the uniform of women between 15 and 35 years old. As for your selling pricier shoes... Sorry Chris, but the bar has changed. Â The market for Vass and Grensons is much more limited than the market for Seven jeans and Limited Edition Nikes. Â I would personally rather have a really cool stack of jeans and a cool jacket by Cloak or C.P. Company, and wear my Pumas, than have a really nice suit (although I have several, I never wear them) and wear Edward Greens. Â And most guys in my demographic would probably agree. PM me if you are serious about expanding your customer base. I'll tell you whether stuff will sell or not. Similarly with your running gear stuff. I do a lot of 10 K's, did a few marathons, hang around that crowd, and have a pretty good handle on what that demographic wants too. You are onto a great thing with Saucony and Hind though. Terrific products, no hype.
