What's the most you've paid for a pair of jeans?

Just curious, as another post recently pointed out that varying opinions on the value of jeans are rampant, even within the confines of the Styleforum. So, how much was the most you've ever paid, what were the jeans, were they worth it, and would you pay more under the right circumstances?

I'll start:

$198.00 for a pair of PDC; got them home, decided I hated them and returned them.
$175.00 for a pair from Hugo Hugo Boss; wearing them right now, love them.

I would pay more, if I found the right pair.

$120 for Diesel Kratts in 2000. I was astonished at myself, but absolutely got my money's worth. I would pay more if I found a pair in-person that I liked as much; my $89 or so sevens are close, and fit me pretty great.

In between these are a bunch of outlet levis, where I've found premiums and the Type 1s that came out a couple years ago , all for like $30.
Also just got a pair of Wrangler 47s that I like for $76 - but would have been disappointed if I'd paid full price, I think.

Well as the cheap scape that made the point, I will answer that, $75, and I thought I was crazy but the were RL, and I liked the way they fit. But not on an everday basis would I even contemplate that for something I might wear once a week.

$148 for each of my three pair of Sevens. My PDC's were $138, as I got them 20% off.

$95 for my PDC 2-year LTD just last Saturday at the Louis sale. Definitely worth the money, indeed even worth a bit more (so I felt like I got a REAL bargain because I paid below my BATNA price).

I think I paid around $190 for a pair of Diesel Snakex around five years ago. Yup, more than retail, but they had just been discountinued and they are still my favorite pair of jeans.

More recently, I bought some Gucci jeans for $150ish that retailed for $400(ish?). Sorry, numbers are fuzzy and I can't find the thread right now...

$118 for a pair of Seven jeans, still my favorite pair of jeans (although I wear PDCs much more often and only wear these when going out, but they are a perfect high contrast wash)

I paid probably $80 once for a pair of Girbaud's - back in 1990 - when they were the thing.

Currently, I have a pair of Lucky's that I got for $39.99 at Nordstrom Rack and two pairs of Levi's 550 that I got for about $20 at Costco.

Sorry - I can't bring myself to pay more for jeans.

$125 for a pair of Diesel Kuratts which are hands-down the best-fitting pair of jeans I've ever worn.  Bought two more (authentic) pair off ebay for $80 and $40.

Prior to that, $100 for Hugo Boss jeans that had a pretty cool wash, but I didn't appreciate fit as much back then.

For an item of clothing that gets as much wear as my jeans, $125 is a reasonable price to pay for good quality and good fit.  When I start wearing my yet-to-be-acquired moleskins and flannels instead of jeans, I'll curtail my jeans expenditures.

$100 after shipping for PDC LTD's on ebay. I generally pay less, but don't regret the purchase, they are worth it.

Wow that brings back some memories. I had a couple of pair of Girbauds back in '93, my sophomore year of high school.
