|snorkeler||I got you bums beat, I get my jeans custom made, and free (well some of them at least, my wife has fashion designer friends in Colombia, where they make a lot of top-notch denim, sold in europe, nyc, etc.) News flash, good jeans cost more than 5 bucks to make unless labor and equipment is free.. Anyway, WTF! Who cares how much someone pays for clothes! I don't buy anything anymore that's not top shelf because I'm sick of throwing junk away! If I find a shirt that looks great I buy it, because it's really hard to find nice clothes that fit just right. Same with jeans, if you find a pair that looks great, is a hundred or two too much when they last a long time? All the same, I rarely have to to because I make smart acquisitions and my wife's a smart shopper.|

|dukpoki||i don't care for true religion because i've never tried them but if some people like them then so what? Let them enjoy what they want. If they have the money then i'd say let them buy $1,000 jeans if they want. It's their business not mine. I mean who am I to say to this person what and how much they can spend on something? As if i had a hand in the money that the person put blood and sweat to make! I don't understand all the hate on this thread. Same with $100+ rice cooker threads, $1,000 grill threads, $$$$ IPS screen threads, etc etc. God i hate cheap mongrels who can't think outside the box.|

C'mon son.....everybody and their mother knows that True Religion was dead years ago. By all means, do you and wear what you like. But facts are facts--in the mainstream, TR isn't "hot" like it used to be. The only people I see wearing these now are soccer moms trying to be hip or dudes in tight Affliction shirts.
2 Chainz is mad late. But then again, he's from the South where fashion-wise, people tend to catch on a few years later (as a transplanted northerner, I have first hand experience with this). Dudes were still wearing Girbaud jeans a few years ago. SMH.

to this thread. Living in Silicon Valley, I have met quite a few VCs and CEOs, CFOs, COOs. They are all intelligent, well-spoken people whose fashion is always very modest. Many blend in quite well in jeans and polos. Most of the high-end executives do indeed drive modest vehicles as well.
At the end of the day, I think it does really depend on the personality and where you are in your life. These people I have described are very science-oriented, and spend much of their time with things other than fashion. However, If you've made a sucessful career in fashion, you will most likely be spending your hard-earned money on expensive and fashionable clothes.
It's all a game of statistics and demographics. LeonC-- youre fighting a losing battle and always will be here.
I think the predominant demographic of Slickdeals users is self-made small-scale economists, those who analyze cost-benefit in terms of forecasting future financial productivity. In a sense, this is much the same mindset of those high-end execs (Silicon Valley VCs and CEOS).
Let's all agree that living in a beautiful democratic country with the choice of getting wal-mart jeans or higher-end domestically-crafted clothing at department stores is just fantastic.

|captnbrimster||really? the shirts say "brand jeans"|

|onlyphoebe||True Religion jeans never seem to fit me right. Neither do 7FAMK. . I like Current/Elliott and J Brand if I am spending some $$. But most of my jeans are just from American eagle, which seem to fit the best and are super cheap.|

|DeezWho||Joes jeans are pretty nice... I find them comparable to 7 for looks. Understated and easy to dress up.|
|01-19-2013 07:44 PM|
I usually buy 7fam because they're denim is incredibly soft and comfortable. I also own levi's for when I do yard work. The material is not even remotely comparable.

Great deal ... if I hadnt already stocked up on these at the last Saks sale (60% off).
Maybe Ill get a belt while Im on the website though.
Also, I dont think those brands are out of style, they just appeal to different segments of the market. I still see people regularly buying Diesel, True Religion, and 7 jeans at Nordstrom, Saks, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, etc ... not to mention in their boutique stores in high end malls.
What basis do you have for saying they are out of style?

I will stick with my Kirklands jeans.
They fit great, and with all that money I saved I can keep looking on SD.
