Fancy Pants
There is an article in Slate predicting that the high-priced denim market is about to pop. Here is one trend that I haven't fallen for:
The $110 million "premium denim" market is beset by signs of excess. Consider the $128 jeans—for toddlers. Or the 400 percent markup: A pair that costs $60 to make retails for $300. Or the race to rush new brands into the stores: Seven for All Mankind, followed by Citizens of Humanity, followed by Stitch's …

I think part of the problem is the markup. You just can't justify the price differential on quality. Also, the $300 jeans aren't gonna make your ass any better those old Levis. Better to spend the difference on some time at they gym.
