How's it stack up? I find myself buying new jeans year in and year out not just on a spending spree, but because they wear themselves out and fall apart. My Levi's that I have are frayed and sad with inexplicably busted off belt loops. Are the more high-end jeans better quality, or are you only paying for the name? I can't see myself spending 200 bucks on Diesels and 7FAM - but you never know. So, are Diesel/7FAM/Banana/APC/True Religion/Citizens of Humanity/etc/etc/etc actually higher quality and will stop the sad cycle of buy jeans and end up with frayed sad ones 5 months later? The jeans that I go through the cycle with are typically Levi's 569s.
