    I won’t spend more than $50.  I’ll shop anywhere, sales, coupons, clearance.  I noticed that most jeans are around $100 these days.  Geesh!

    The last pair I bought was $196 (J Brand skinnies). I don’t wear jeans often and only buy a new pair every couple of years, though.

    I buy pretty much the same pair in different shades. They are the skinny kick jeans at American Eagle. They are kind of a blend between skinnies and flares and I love them! I always go during big sales though so I usually pay about $35-$45. 

    ETA: I would pay up to $100 for jeans that fit my body right. I’m just lucky to have finally found a brand/style for this price.

    There’s nothing like the fit & longevity of Paige Premium jeans.  Granted I have a super long inseam & it’s hard to find jeans to fit. I’ll gladly pay for them when they easily last 2-3 times as long as others.

    Typically I spend $50-$100.  I am obsessed with Seven For All Mankind jeans and have quite a few pairs.  But, I only buy them when they are on sale and have found them at Marshall’s, local boutiques and online at great sale prices.  I love the way they fit and the colors/washes that they come in.

    The most expensive pair I bought was around $120 but that was awhile ago when I wasn’t paying my own bills. Nowadays I’ll spend $45-$50.

    My go to store is American Eagle. I can always find the perfect pair there.

    i voted $50 plus. I’ve found that the less expensive jeans do not fit me well (I’ve tried Target brand jeans, Old Navy, jeans from Jc Penny’s, etc) and sometimes the quality isn’t that great. I like jeans from Express (usually $60 or so) and I love Joes jeans ($120) – they both fit my curvy but petite frame. If I could find a pair of less expensive jeans with decent quality, I’d be all for that.

    I spend $30-$40 if I can on my jeans. I work in a causal, but you must wear pants, environment so I wear them every day year round. I wear my jeans out pretty fast by walking at least 2 miles a day in them. I usually buy my jeans from Fleet Farm, a kind of farm-centric hardware store. They carry jeans meant for people working on farms and in construction, and they are usually much more durable than the more designer or name-brand jeans. I replace my Fleet Farm bought jeans every 8-12 months. I once got a pair from Old Navy and they only lasted about 3-4 months for the same price.

    Depends on the occasion I’m buying for.  For my everyday jeans, I spend up to $50 because my body type is tough to shop for (I’m a very muscular size 2, so jeans are hard to fit).  But I do have some trendier jeans that are closer to $100 which I’ll wear to parties or a night on the town.

    My upper limit on jeans is about at $20. I have issue with chub rub and it absolutely destroys any pair of jeans – it’s just a matter of time before it happens, and it’s hard to predict which jeans will fare better than others.

    Because of that, I buy jeans almost exclusively at thrift stores. I pay about $7-10 dollars per pair, max. Often, they don’t fit that well but it’s just not an option for me to spend more money than this on clothing that I will destroy in short order.

    It depends. Unfortunately, most jeans don’t fit me correctly or aren’t flattering. AE jeans fit great, except that they’re obscenely low rise. I always get them on sale when I need jeans. I have a pair of Express skinnies that I love, and I think they retail for $70, but I definitely got them for like $40.

    I’m super picky with my jeans, too. Darker wash, NO embellishments, no pocket flaps, VERY little to no distressing. Those are hard to find AND have them not be $$$ AND be flattering AND fit correctly AND not need me to get a bikini wax to wear.

    My favorite jeans are the Lane Bryant Trouser jeans, they don’t come in petite though so I usually need to get them altered.  They cost me about $70, but they make my butt look amazing so it’s worth it to me.  I fit normal store sizes for the most part but since I have a rather large thigh/butt combo, shopping at Lane Bryant gives me a better look and fit.

    Good jeans are well worth the price! I’m super picky about my jeans, so will pay a lot for them, but I wear them constantly and they hold up great over time and threw tons of washes!
