What's the most you've paid for a pair of jeans? - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I paid $200 a piece for both pairs of my Ermenegildo Zegna jeans. They are worth every penny to me.

$240 for some Rogans. I don't regret it - the most comfortable pair i've ever owned, and i wear them every weekend.

Jeeze... you guys really don't spend that much on jeans. I've been over the $200 mark half a dozen times. The most expensive being a pair of tar/wax finished Sandy Dalal jeans for $250.... funny thing is I wore them a total of once. Most recently I dropped a deuce for 2 pairs of Ernest Sewn in the Filson model, in September. I haven't worn one of them yet (will be returned) and the other I wear about 2-3X a week.

I'm with nightowl and Bradford.  Jeans are casual pants, no matter how you slice it (and I don't recommend slicing them, either).  Khakis are casual, too.  As are cords.  And the rest.  I save my money for tailored clothes. Penney's has the standard $29.99 always going for 505s and 550s; that's fine for me.  I wear them when grocery shopping, cleaning the tub, mowing the lawn; you get the idea.  I'm not walking a runway. Bill's Khakis, on the other hand....  Well....  Nice pants, but I still feel a bit guilty doing yardwork and the such in $90 trou.

OK....new Grenson price.....$250.......caue if you will pay that for a pair of jeans, then everybody lied about $200 being a breaking point. Gotcha......but man, that much for a pair of jeans, I have got to bring this up at dinner Sunday with Ken, he will even be astonished I think.

~$120 for some Evisu's off Yoox; I think I saw the same pair on another site for $300+. It's a pretty basic light bluish-green jean, none of the usual fashion victimy designs, and really really soft, comfortable denim.

$270 for a pair of pretty funky Versace jeans at Bloomingdales two years ago. The second time I wore them, I noticed the seam started to come undone in the crotch (the jeans were not tight at all). By the time I got home that day, there was a huge hole in my crotch. I couldn't believe it. Needless to say, I returned them the next day. The salesperson told me that a few other people had experienced similar problems with the same model. Very disappointing.

Bear in mind that for some of us "casual" is pretty much the standard mode of dress, while tailored clothing is more the exception. Given that parameter, and the fact that we still love clothes, it would stand to reason that we look for expression and individuality within the realm of casual clothing. There is a vast range of expression in casual clothing styling and design as well as quality, much as there is in tailored clothing. To lump all jeans ,cords, and khakis (save for Bill's...) into the same category is akin to saying that all suits or dress shirts are more or less the same; Hugo Boss equals Attolini or Borrelli. I suppose in part it is a question of priority: I don't mind spending money on high-end casual stuff, because that is what I wear, however at the same time I'd also prefer Attolini, Kiton, Brioni et al, in tailored clothing.

The most overall was $109 including tax for the PDC SLM resin prep jeans I'm wearing right now. The only time I paid full price for a pair of jeans was $70 for a pair of Mavis, back when I was new to higher-quality denim. My mainstays (various PDC jeans, a couple of Sevens, a couple of Levi's Premium, a pair of regular Levi's I picked up on a whim) were bought at 50-75 percent off.

Somewhere between 90 and 100 US$, bespoke Levi's at the San Francisco downtown store.

About $150 a few times, twice for Levi's reproduction 501's (one pair or 1955's and one pair of 1947's). Both unwashed shrink-to-fit. And once for a pair of Helmut Lang raw, unwashed basic bootcut jeans. Didn't regret any of those buys. The fade patern of the denim, especially in the Levi's worth the money. I bought a new pair of regular 501's recently for $30, and they were terrible. The denim is too thin, and the color fades quickly and without character.
