The Perfect Price to Pay For Jeans?!

Published March 1, 2012 - 4 Comments

Reading through the latest copy of Money Sense, I saw a short article about the perfect price to pay for a pair of jeans.  “If you go under $80 the fit might be off and the denim might be too thin.”

$80?  Really?

I don’t tend to buy many of my own clothes (as you can probably tell if you know me at all) but I’m pretty sure that no one has ever spent $80 on a pair of jeans for me!  The ones I’m wearing right now are from Zellers, and I think I paid $10 for them on sale.  I understand that $10 for a pair of jeans is very much at the low end of the spectrum, and I wouldn’t expect most people to want to pay so little, but I don’t really care too much about my jeans.  I’ve never been trendy, and $10 jeans work perfectly fine for me.  (Although I will say that the pocket linings tend to wear thin easily, so I can’t put change in my pockets without it falling out through my pant leg).

But even for the average person who wants to spend a little more for quality, $80 seems excessive.  But maybe that’s just me.
