    a jeans or denim line that is really high-end and exclusive that could be discussed only in the Men's Clothing forum category instead of the denim section?
    What´s the name of that brand?

    It's not "exclusivity" that separates the content for the forums. I believe what you are referring to is known as a "Canadian Tuxedo".

    But only a high-income nutter would wear it.

    Levis Strauss & Co.

    You are crazy if you pay more than $100.00 for denim!

    One could say that about any garment.

    You're crazy if you pay more than $100 for a shirt.
    ditto $400 for a suit.
    ditto $200 for a jacket.
    ditto $200 for shoes.
    ditto $100 for sneakers.
    ditto $300 for a coat.

    $ = USD.

    You know that NOBD posts over in SW&D; generally he gets good reviews there. And he asks the SW&D guys about denim, too.

    Just leave off everything after "but without....".

    I don't think so. If there was it might be a denim pant and no longer a Jean. There were versions of this in the early to mid 70's. Some were even pleated. They were rather forgetful.

    They still make those, and I even see them in the wild on occasion. The wearer is almost always north of 70. If you want a pair as a joke, I've seen 'em in stock at Kohls in the past.


    You could say that, and you would be right in some cases, wrong in others. It's important to learn what you're getting for your money. On something like a suit, there's a real difference in quality of construction, but that quality takes a lot more time and handwork. So it's very pricy, but that $2,000 suit will blow away your $400 one.

    But sneakers? $100 canvas sneakers, or even $300 canvas sneakers, aren't actually significantly different from $45 ones, just 'exclusive' and marketed as such. Those are a waste.

    $200 for shoes? At that point, you're not even getting full grain leather and a real welt. Major differences there too.

    On a cut and sew item like jeans without any sort of structural elements or hand sewing, if you spend loads on 'em you're a victim of marketing. The key is learning where spending more gets you more and where spending more lines somebody's pockets.

    Jesus Christ not this again. To the OP the brands you're thinking of are True Religion and 7 for all Mankind

    RRL makes some god damn good quality jeans that last a very, very long time. One paid of RRL will out live one pair of Levis every time.

    Well that rules out Levi's around here. Non sale they start around €100 or almost $145 at current exchange rates.
