I'm rebuilding my wardrobe and have around $150 to spend on a nice pair of jeans to start it off. What pair should I get and what measurements should I know? Thanks in advance. Barring sales, the best bang for your buck are APCs (I suggest new standards). They are 155, but with style forum discounts at Denim bar they are more like 125. Beyond that, you can look for sales. Denim Bar in fact is having one right now.
