  • Published on Jul 18, 2018
  • Denim expert Benjamin Talley Smith and Teen Vogue's Rajni Jacques attempt to guess the prices of different pairs of jeans. Benjamin breaks down everything that goes into making each pair of jeans and uses his knowledge of denim to guess which pair is more expensive. Using Ben's teachings, Rajni attempts to guess how much the pair she's wearing are worth. Which jeans cost $1,300 dollars?

    Yeah. High end which makes you reach the ends of your pockets. 🤯 it looks so bland and you get no compliments, oh, wait. The cheap ones you can do many styles with and for 3 pairs to one high end I can wear them all in a week. Let alone 1 ugly pants to wear God knows when it will be time for you to get another.

    everyone is getting so made that they said $80 was ‘cheaper’. for the more expensive jeans, you’re paying for the craftsmanship and the designer and the creativity, not just the garment.

    I think that in your life you'll never need to buy a jeans that costs more than 60 euros (66 dollars), since you can easily buy discounted Levi's for that price. Levi's jeans are good quality, sustainable and they come in a lot of models for every length and type of body, since they are the main product of the company. Even though some models are more expensive than that you don't really need to buy them, and if you really like them you can buy them second-hand because they're very durable. This seems like an advertisement but what I mean is that if you can get this quality clothing for less than 100 euros you'll never even need to think about buying the super expensive clothes that are shown in this video

    The problem with jeans without elasticity is that they don’t hug the body and if it does it fit uncomfortable and the main reason to wear jeans is to be comfortable and also look good on them.

    Sure those jeans can't be washed, Benjamin, but you should wash those teeth for sure! They almost look neon-radioactive.

    $20 H&M and forever 21 jeans are made in sweatshops. Clothing is not suppose to be that cheap. $80 is a reasonable price if you understand what goes one in the factories producing those jeans.

    I used this guide to buy jeans at Old Navy. I found a jean with a 9 stitch per inch, heavier feeling, and had only 1% spandex and 99% cotton. Only cost me $40. You don't have to buy $80 jeans.
