on a pair of jeans?

When you hit the point where you need new jeans or hit your goal and go on a shopping spree (thats what i want to do). How much would you spend on a real good pair of jeans? I still have about 15lbs to go but, I'm browsing the internet and all I see for a real good pair of jeans is gonna cost me no less than $100???

You thoughts :)

I would not spend more than $30 on a pair of jeans.

Running shoes on the other hand.......

I think my last pair of Nikes were close to $150. Eeeep!

When I get to goal, my reward is a pair of fancy jeans. Generally, though, I wouldn't pay more than $30 either.

It depends on your finances. I would spend whatever you can afford.

$30 would be about my max as well - I'm cheap when it comes to jeans because to me they all look the same and, in my experience, they all last about the same amount of time.

Now shirts and shoes on the other hand? :o

$30.00 would be my max but I agree with Shytowngirl, Whatever price range is good for you is best. :)

I get really GREAT jeans at Dots
for less than $20! It depends
which kind you get, though. Last
time I went shopping I got clearance
dress pants for $10 per pair of jeans.

I don't spend much on jeans most 30, because even though they are cheap those suckers still last a long *** time. I've had jeans from when I paid 10 dollars for that STILL are attached, no rips nothing that fit (or not fit me) lol.

Now shoes, depends but when it comes to boots, I'll spend over 100 if I find a really good pair that I absolutely love. Unfortunetly with debt to pay off, I don't endulge myself too much in anything...:(

I think when I hit my goal, I'm gonna splurge and get like 3 pair of silvers. :)

Yeah, my favorite jeans were upwards of 80 dollars, and they made me FEEL amazing. I got them from The Buckle.

And they only fit for that summer. And now they're in my closet waiting to be loved again.... The denim is so soft, but strong. The color is rich and lively. And the back pockets made my butt look GOOD ;) ;)

I'd have to say $30 would be my max too. But then again I am a klutz and a cat lover. Every darn piece of clothing I own gets kneaded by kitty paws so I get little pulled threads/holes. And I <3 them so I let them do it-lol

thank you all so very much. Got a lot of different thoughts and i love it! After all the posts I think I may splurge on one expensive pair and the rest the usual $30.

I'm the same when it comes to shoes/boots. $100...pfff no problem lol


I'm on the thebuckle.com right now and they are having a HUGE sale!!!

I'm a have to see, I'm not one for paying full price I LOVE a good deal. So I will go to Goodwill and see who got too small or too big for their designer Jeans. I have found some good stuff and I got a couple Michael Kors and Ann Taylor Sweaters for $4.69. I wait til someone has a sale and I have a coupon or I go to the outlet mall. $30 is really my absolute max when I really need them and can't find them anywhere.

i've always had really iffy experiences with jeans from the buckle... but for me, the buckle brand run smaller than silvers. depends on what brand you're buying, i guess?

could you go to a store to try on the diff types and sizes just to make sure? that would def help!!

I've always told myself that when I reach goal I will buy a pair of Paige Premium. I "knew her when", so it would just be "neat", but...it'll cost me between $175-$200 :faint:

What constitutes a good pair of jeans? To me, levis are good jeans so $50-60 whatever they cost.I would probably wait until they are on sale though. But the last time I bought jeans they were on sale for about $18 so there ya go.

best to go to a buckle, if you have one within reasonable driving distance,and try them on. ours is a little over an hour away. this time next year i a hoping that is where i will be!

depends on what you consider a good pair of jeans? ones that make your butt look amazing? ones that have a label on them that suggests you spent a lot of money? and also how many pairs of jeans does one need? i have two pairs of jeans and a pair of corduroy pants. i can wear each pair twice before washing again as long as there are no kitty or cooking incidents haha. but if i was a mom, i'd probably need more because laundry wouldn't be done as often.
too many factors!
i would drop the $60 or so bucks for some nice pairs of jeans from Eddie Bauer or for Levi's but only if they fit me and i felt great in them. otherwise what's the point?
right now i just buy the $19.99 garbage pairs from walmart and wear them til they fall apart, which sadly isn't too long i've noticed.
