Recently I have been really into buying jeans, whether they are 200 dollar J brand jeans or 29.99 dollar jeans from H&M. I never thought there was a big difference between more expensive jeans or cheaper jeans. But since I’ve been buying a ton of jeans I started to become more aware of the differences between cheaper jeans versus more expensive.
I conducted a poll on Facebook and asked my friends if they would rather spend more money on jeans that would last longer or spend less money on jeans that would last a season. 32 people voted on buying more expensive jeans and only 9 people voted on buying cheaper jeans. This poll lead me to think about how jeans become so expensive or so cheap. So I did some research and found this “diagram” from Refinery 29 that explains it very well.
