    I mean, durability is nice but if it's your primary concern buying 5pairs of walmart jeans for a total of $50-60 is a better deal than 1pair of apcs for 150 in terms of the amount of use you'll get.

    For the most part, who cares. There are other benefits to ironhearts while the only benefits to oldnavy really is the price.

    I love it when people who don't know what they're talking about do some home brewed "science."

    Doing a light workout in jeans is a durability test? el oh el

    They didn't even look at the stitching. Come fucking on.

    How does one test for style?

    Apparently by asking a couple of badly dressed people who walk by.

    Some decent butt shots but that host needs to hem those hybrid-jeans (no sq4).

    Dude, everyone knows the crotch is the first thing to blow out on denim.

    They should have had sandpaper-clad strippers giving lap dances until denim failure. Much more relevant.

    [​IMG] oh my god up to TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR JEANS!
    hahaha And I love when there are people that say that, yet drive a 60k car (that they replace every 3-4 yrs) and have a 500k mortgage. edit: and durability, seriously... you're talking about women's jeans... they're going to rotate them w/ a dozen other pairs. It's not like they're going to be wearing them 4-5 times each week

    My sister thought I was crazy when I bought my first $180 pair of jeans. I didn't even bother mentioning the $20,000 credit card debt her husband racked up in less than 2 years. BTW I'd be pissed if either a $29 brand new pair of jeans or a $200 brand new pair of jeans ripped during their light workout.
