Jeans are are a staple of many a wardrobe. But we all know that jeans can be outrageously expensive — your average new pair runs anywhere from $40 to $300.

With these rising prices (and in this economy), what passes for a bargain is getting more and more unrealistic. At one point, maybe like, 15 years ago, paying $100 for jeans was kind of atrocious. Now, if you can get them for under $175, some consider it a deal.

So let’s get down to brass tacks (AWESOME that I just got to say that): how much are you willing to pay for jeans?
