Jeans Poll

Last night theWife and I went into an Express store because their sign outside drew us in offering $30 off every pair of jeans. At first I thought that was a good deal, but then it dawned and me and I asked theWife, how much are these jeans in the first place, if they can afford to take $30 off?

As it turns out, they're normally anywhere from $70 to $108. $108 for Jeans? Do they make coffee? I doubt it. Do they last longer than a normal pair of jeans? I doubt that too. So the question is, would you pay $108 for jeans? If you vote yes, please leave your reason in the comments.

Uhhh... my only choices are "yes" and "I smoke crack"? Since I wouldn't pay $108 for jeans, I guess I'm a crack smoker (though I wouldn't pay $108 for crack either).

I believe you would need to be smoking crack to pay $108 for a pair of jeans, so I guess that means you are not a crack smoker. Congratulations.

I voted "yes," but there is a caveat: it depends who's wearing them.

So, you'd buy them for someone else, but not for yourself?

I voted Yes, even though the most I've ever spent on a pair of jeans was about $60. More often than not, the latest fashions and the newest products to hit the market usually start out expensive and the price drops over time. For example, last year's fashions can be found on today's clearance racks. Express also has an image to withhold.

I think setting a high price for something also causes it to become popular. Often times people, especially teenagers, buy clothes because of the brand and not because they last longer, are warmer, are more practical, etc...
