This thread was inspired by a comment in the Xbox thread. Are any parents out there getting pressure to buy their kids Abercrombie or Guess jeans? I am talking about the utterly ridiculous $140 jeans that those stores are selling. Maybe I am hopelessly out of it, but what besides succumbing to dumb designer status, can make a pair of jeans worth three times the price of most other jeans? My daughter claims that not all jeans are equal, but she can't really tell me why. In fact, she was surprised to learn that they are all made from the same basic fabric. Uggh.
