For women, I'll say that it's justifiable because fit is top priority not durability or price point. But for men, theres no reason to be spending that much on something that isnt well made and is meant only to impress. Its like the Bose of jeans, but then I'd say the same out of most of the designer labels that were built up on some celebrity wear watch.

I have heard women said it's hard to find jeans that fit, but there are more jeans for women than men.

low quality.
the 300 you spend on them buys you cheap materials and cheap production and a big "designer" name.
for that price you can get some excellent made in japan jeans that are made using old-school high quality production methods and fit, fade, and wear 10x better than any true religions.

Interesting thing, guys, after spending some time with them, I've found them to be a very good fit, but seem to be more airtight than what I usually wear. Almost seems to fit too close to the skin. (FYI I didn't pay list price for them). But the 7 For All Mankinds are a different story after a while. They seems to be some of the most comfortable pairs I've every worn...

a question to the jeans aficionados - have you ever come across of any upscale brand that makes a pair of guy's jeans in 30 waist and 34 length?
post #66 of 682
yes. all brands most likely have 30w jeans, and most good jeans come very long and can be hemmed to whatever length you want.

thanks gallardo88.

however, i looked at 7 For All Mankind and they say the leg is around 33. that would be a tad short...

wonder where i should look next. any ideas?
post #68 of 682
Try Denim - Rock & Republic. Their inseam length is a little longer than the 7 For All Mankind jeans.
post #69 of 682
I shall get 7 For All Mankind to see what this brand is all about.

jenneth, thank you for the advice

Colburg in Burnpool Blue does look interesting. i am surprised the waistlines on practically all of Rock & Republic are so high.

any other brands that make them longer inseam?
post #71 of 682
self egde.
post #72 of 682
wow, that's pretty long. it's not pre-shrank though, so, i need to crunch me some numbers :P .

lower waistlines, it's better. it's curious that there's very few jeans out there that do mid-to-low waistlines for guys. one would imagine the people who make them would follow the trends.

thank you gallardo88

Rock & Republic & Seven are definitely my favorites. I'd say the 7's are a bit more comfortable, but I like the look of the R&R's more.
