How Much Would You Pay for Jeans?

10/04/2006 at 09:00 PM ET

In the new issue of PEOPLE StyleWatch (The Ultimate Jeans Guide, on newstands now) you’ll find denim options for every style and budget, from $30 Old Navy flares to $850 limited-edition, handmade ones from Stitch’s. And what do you get for your money? The magazine breaks it down by fabric, wash, details, even the labor involved in making them. For the record, $850 buys you jeans that are handwashed in antique barrels, spun from exclusive Japanese fibers, and have buttons with black pearl centers (and they better make your butt look good.) If you found the perfect pair of jeans, how much would you pay for them? How much do you usually spend on a pair of jeans?

Well for me the perfect jeans are hard to find! I’m 15 yrs old and 5″10. The only way i can get some great jeans is if I order them off line from for increased inseams. those run at about 40 bucks a pop. plus tax and s&h runs me about $145 for 3 pairs. and on top of that were not rich, and im still growing! sooner or later I’ll have to resort to making my own jeans, lol :-D

I have a hard time finding the right jeans because it’s so hard to find my size. At the moment I am searching for more pairs since it’s winter here in Australia. I currently only own 2 pairs of jeans for winter – my Rusty and Jag pairs. *sad sad* It’s great to know that I’m not the only one struggling! As for $850 jeans? I don’t have that much to spend on my whole wardrobe! So no.. not for me, even if they did fit awesomely.

I will spend from $25 to 40$. I think jeans should not be that expensive. Just buy enough jeans so you can mix them with your other clothes. Why not!
