    i think i wear 5 pairs regularly and then there are like 30 some odd pairs that make it into the rotation. i've put some on ebay on gotten some very good money for them. its amazing what people will pay for used clothing on there.

    You can get most of those brands at Loehmann's or similar retailers for 50 bucks (same price as Gap jeans). Only silly people pay full price.

    with ebay, i always want to ask those high bidders..."why do you bid the price above retail? can't you just buy them at neimanmarcus.com if you are willing to pay that price?"

    It really is hard to find a good pair of jeans for under 70 bucks at least. I would say above $100 is where all the good ones are. On that note....


    Does anyone know where I can get a pair of straight leg, slim fit, low rise jeans with nice washes?-for under $100?

    Here you go. I was going to post that article yesterday anyway, but I decided that any article on overpriced jeans is two years too late. Guy Trebay can do waaay better than that.

    Thanks for the article. I have been toying with the idea of expanding the denim gallery in my store so this is very interesting. I have always been a denim addict my weakness is for worn in Levis 501s and the 2 year old Diesel jeans (that have been patched and restitched numerous times) that I wear almost every day, literally.

    Where are you located? I can't believe you haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet.

    It's not that we haven't jumped on the bandwagon, I'm just considering stocking A LOT more brands than we currently have. I'm also considering breaking away from being employed by somebody and employing myself with my own store. Denim is key for me, but hasn't been for my employers until they started to see the results. I'm getting tired of making other people (that are clueless) money and working my a** off for a salary.

    Tell me about it. I would love to be able to get another pair of Fankers. These are so patched and worn they look like the Paper Denim & Cloth "ripper" jean. Will need a new pair soon.

    bluefly.com usually has some good discounted designer jeans in the $80-$100 range.

    Lucky Brand jeans cost about that new. They have some good fits and washes.
