Okay, so before anyone says anything, I KNOW 7's aren't worth the price that they sell for. The problem is that I LOVE the elastic mixed in with the denim. The "stretch" that the jeans have is really appealing. With that being said, I do not want to spend a mint on these jeans, as my pair is worn out (they were a gift). Do you all have any suggestions? From what it seems, most members on here are after raw denim, so it's tough to find a solid thread.
