    If you got the money then spend it.
    I just charged a lady the other day $2,800 for extensions. Now that's some upkeep.

    Don't you mean LOOK?

    Wouldn't it be $1,200.00 cheaper to just use a sock and butt pads and get the same effect?

    Yep, some clothes cost quite a lot! $1,000's, $10,000's and $100,000's if you're talking about specialty couture. Don't really see the point of going "OMG that's fucking stupid why would anyone spend that amount!??", these are simply realities of specialty markets that have always existed.

    A sash from Dior Homme's 2005 collection will run you 4 figures. It is a black, over the the shoulder sash for men. I could name you 50 designers who have 4-figure jeans.

    Let's ignore the price tag for a few seconds and look at the FUGLY design. Just base on on the merit of the jean's design -- a total reject! NEXT!

    I totally understand on one post in regards of couture and it's value. Jean's design should be clean and no fuzzy embellishments! If I want to spend thousands of dollars that I don't have, I will invest on a couture suit instead of this ugly whatchamacallit?


    Peace

    I could see paying that amount if these jeans looked great, but they dont.
    Years ago, everyone thought $200 dollars for a pair of jordans was crazy,but i purchased them anyway.....

    I have a friend, whom I love to death, who painstakingly points out every designer whatever it is he's wearing and how much it cost him. And he's absolutely stunned when I neither know the designer, nor care.

    There are few things more insufferable than some buffoon with Peacock syndrome trying to convince you that spending 4 figures on a piece of fabric that likely came out of the same sweatshop in China as the fabric going into the clothes at Walmart somehow makes him or her special. It's the grown up equivalent of "Look at me everyone! Look, look!"

    *gag*

    But whatever. To each their own. I'm still friends with my Peacock, after all.

    I don't spend money on designer clothes (I am a flat broke painter and professional visual artist, I have no money), nor do I point them out as a mark of worth, I think it's gaudy (coughVirothcough).

    However, I do highly appreciate fashion and am well informed what designers are up to (Not fashion houses, the actual designers for fashion houses), it's part of my art background. I'm also well aware of markets, I have to be as an artist, I have to know what art is moving, when, where, what shows are being curated and what collectors are doing.

    What things sell for doesn't shock me, because I'm informed what they sell for. Nor do I place judgement on what they sell for. I'm simply informed.

    See simply repeating that over and over doesn't really aggregate to the point I was trying to make, which wasn't, as a previous poster implied, that I was label whoring or something else with a peacock inference. It was that, hey, surprise, this isin't a surprise.

    It's a pair of jeans to you, but to someone else it's a work of art.

    Would I spend that much on jeans? No. Never.

    Does this pair of jeans, selling for $1,300 have an effect on my life in any way? No. And I highly doubt it has any effect on YOUR life as well.

    Live and let live, sweetums.

    I can understand paying an arm and a leg for a one of a kind couture piece for women, but paying $1,300 for a pair of jeans that could easily be, and probably is, mass produced is rediculous.

    They are ugly. Some people will buy them. Is a painting worth $50 or $60 million? Is a car worth $1.6 million? Is an Hermes handbag worth upwards of $100,000? The value is determined by what somebody is willing to pay. And yes, an adelpated cretin and his specie divaricate with startling prematurity (fortune cookie).

    although I think the jeans might be a touch much, it does bring into question the idea of worth.

    no, the fabric might not cost much, or, maybe it does, we don't know, that fabric (denim) could have been made by people who truly know what they are, perhaps made by hand or on machines that require more care and consideration when weaving, requiring someone truly skilled in the crave of weaving.

    The sewing, could have been done by people who truly know what they are doing, not just some mass trained cheaply paid sweat shop workers, but people who really understand what it is to produce a properly sewn garment, ya know, you don't just sit down at a machine and sew, you have to properly set tension to ensure a clean even seam.

    The designer could have added specialty touches that you simple can not seen from the small photo, we don't know..

    There is more to any product them simple sum of it's parts, there is also the expertise that has gone into producing that object... but unfortunately we are so used to looking at things as simply it's parts that we value things not on the quality of it anymore but it's parts.
