I'm an older Forum guy on SF. I like jeans and wear them fairly often. I have a lot of Levi's and a couple of Lucky jeans, and some Diesel jeans. I like all of them. My question is "What's up with these $200-$350 Jeans that are discussed here on SF"? How do they differ from my Lucky's and Diesels, which I consider Designer jeans? I definitely know the difference between a half fused decent suit(let's say a Hickey Freeman) and an upper end hand made suit(let's say a Kiton). So, what are the differences between my $100 Lucky's and the $300 designer jeans? BTW: I currently wear a 38-30 jean. Should I even inquire about upper end jeans, or would they be ill-advised for me?
