I have been looking at jeans, and buying a few pair, and have noticed the very wide price range .. anywhere from $15 to $500. What is the most you've ever paid for a pair of jeans?

Personally, I never pay over $40 for a pair of jeans. I'm not much for designer labels and fads, especially with jeans; I just want a nice fit at a reasonable price.

I've never paid more than $20 for jeans, I buy them on sale. I think my favorite pair is by Lee, and I bought them at JC Penneys for $19.99

I usually spend about $20 a pair. I like Lees and Levis and can usually catch them on sale some place. ;-)

I have paid $70 for jeans before, but I tend to stay in the $40 range at the most. There are certain jeans that I think I might be more for because of the fit and quality is just better, but I haven't bought new jeans in a long time so who knows what I am willing to spend anymore.

I'm a much savvier shopper than when I was young, so I can usually find something that was very expensive at a deep discount. It helps that I'm not an average size. I don't pay over $15 for a pair of jeans, but they are usually marked down from $80 - $150. The most I've ever actually paid, it pains me to admit, was $45.

Such a good question to post, ladyinpublic! Well, the most I've spent on jeans was $80 (they were these nice Michael Kors bootcut jeans from SmartBargains.com). But that was just the one time.

For the most part, I spend between $30 and $50. I find that the less expensive jeans fit my wallet AND MY BUTT better!

I recently fell in love with the William Rast jeans at Target -- they're on clearance right now!!! They're super soft, a little stretchy, but not so stretchy that they look inexpensive.
