    Man, I'm sorry, but Old Navy stuff is shit and that's why you are paying $20 for jeans.

    $80 is easily well worth it. I wear them all the time, and they last for a long time.

    Are you kidding me dude? Look at the stitching on the back pockets...7 for All Mankind, True Religion, Rock n' Republic, Citizens of Humanity, ALL have a very distinctive stitching on the back pocket. True Religion is THE most distinctive of them all, there's no missing the horseshoe. If you think someone has to see the tag to know what kind they are, you have no business putting them down.

    They last me 8 months to a year. That's plenty. Do you plan on wearing the $80 jeans for 4 years? That's how long you'd have to wear them for the durability to be worth the price. If you are buying them because you like them that's one thing. If you are paying that much for durability, I think that's silly.

    Old Navy jeans look fine. Sure, they aren't as thick as other jeans but I don't plan on wearing the same jeans for half a decade. Besides, thinner jeans are way more comfortable IMO.

    Only two types of clothing will part me from more than $40 at a time.
    Jackets and specialty shoes
    (rugby boots, running shoes, cycling shoes)

    As a starving college student type, I'd rather spend my money on training... and shop smart to look good on the cheap.

    skate shoes, jeans, Tees and a weakness for mesh back hats.

    I think I've had one pair for 3 years. They're all faded and shit, but still kickin.

    And yeah, I buy them just because I like them. They're pretty thick, yet still manage to be light.

    Plus, jeans are always more comfortable the second and third time you wear them (I mean without washing)

    i've gotten more positive comments on my diesel jeans than any of the more inexpensive brands that i occasionally wear. my major problem with some of the higher end jean manufacturers is the fact that their jeans seem to be geared toward people with really skinny legs. other than diesel i like 7's. i don't care too much for r n' r.

    I agree completely. I wear my jeans at least 3 times before washing.

    I have the same problem as you, I'm 5'6" 180lbs. I've tried on Diesel but they were tooooo tight. 7's fit me good, and I had to buy one waist size up on the True Religions to fit my quads.

    Lots of Versace and Armani in my wardrobe but just tops, I dont know why but Italians can't make jeans.
    Tommy Hilfiger makes the best jeans for a reasonable price.
    Im buying twice a year, winter and summer sale.

    I think it's all a trade off. The fashionable slim jeans are too tight on you but fit fine on me. And the collared shirts that they make probably fit better on you than they do on me. That's my biggest beef with fashion clothing. I can't find any collared shirts that fit me the way I want it to off the rack. I'm 6' 175 lbs for reference.

    I even have some problems with t-shirts sometimes so I stick to a few brands. I have a big neck from grappling so a lot of the shirts that fit fine on me body wise are way too small at the neck or I just have to wear my tees looser than I like.

    Always, I've found that you get what you pay for.

    I wear G-Star & Evisu jeans mainly and I have not had 1 pair last LESS than 10 years.

    Up top I almost exclusively wear polo shirts (Hilfiger, Nautica, Ralph Lauren, A & F)

    If you're like me and a poor bastard I recommend waiting for sale time or Fee-bay

    Lol, manage your money better? When you spending your phone bill on jeans? Ironic! Go manage your moms money and enjoy your jeans while I stick to $20 Gap jeans and my own house.

    Sucka.
