Uhm, I probably have mostly American eagle jeans which are about fifty bucks. Although, they don't always give out the most flattering ass LOL. But my favorite brand that I own would be Plastic. With tax, I think they were like 170.
I suppose that I have recently been buying them at Target-- the brand is "Mossimo," if I am not mistaken. link
How much do they cost? The pair that I purchased a few weeks ago were about $28.00 (perhaps a penny less, hah.) The price used to be in the low $20s... so, they obviously have gone up slightly.
How long do they last? They are not of a thick material, so it truly depends on what activities you will be participating in. The longest-living (and first) of the particular brand I have is probably a year (or year and-a-half) old-- although, it does have a ripped knee (as I took a rather large tumble, hah.)
If I wanted something a bit more heavy-duty, I would wear Wranglers (which I have owned and liked.)
I would have to say they the knees wear out initially... but the butt would be second, considering there is a drastic fade in one pair.
I go to stores like TJMAxx or Marshall's most of the time. Can always find some decent jeans pretty cheap. I'm not willing to pay much more than $20 for a pair of jeans. I don't really pay attention to brands.
I guess jeans that I wear regularly last about two years. They always seem to wear out around the pockets or near the crotch or knees. My one pair of jeans actually just tore on both the knees and there are some tears around the back pockets, blah :\
Well I only have 2 pairs of blue jeans and one's from AE and one from Hollister. So I'd guess they were like $50 each which is expensive to me...
Most of my pants are khaki because of stupid school dress codes...But luckily they're all khakis from Hollister that my friend gave to me. Her mom shops for her all the time and always buys sizes that are too small so she just let's me use them. Although they fit the best Hollister pants have a knack for tearing near the crotch though.:(
1)Thift stores and sample sales. Brands: Cheap Monday, Rock and Republic, J brand, Mavi 2) $20 and under 3) A couple of years 4) They start to wear out at the knee area and (unfortunately) by my crotch. Hence my investment in patches.
