    I've never heard of this company and even if I had 200 bucks I'm not paying no one that price for a pair of jeans... That's ridiculous... I know how to distress my jeans myself... Give me a pair of Lee or Wrangler, even better anything on sale below 20 bucks... Geez....

    I'm not gonna pay $200 for one pair of jeans. It's not worth it. Technically, it's the same method of how of her jeans are made as well. Thank you but no thank you.

    Distressing them is a con. Means they will wear out faster and you will have to buy more sooner.

      Rich people. Someone one spent $50K on a pair of first edition of Levis Jeans. So yeah, $200 is nothing.

    You forgot to mention what the chemicals are when they are sprayed with protective product not to mention all of the chemicals used to add color to them. Every pair of Jean's today are being made with highly toxic products.

      A lot of people are too used to buy cheap crap that is essentially subsidised by exploitation of low wage workers and the environmental destruction.
      Now we've come to a point where paying 200 for a single pair of jeans that could last a life time is too much
