The Value of Denim

If you have a $20 pair of denim, vs. a $240 pair, is there really a difference?

The jury is out, but there’s a really interesting study in next month’s Consumer Reports on just that.

So, is there any real difference between a $20 pair and a $240 pair? Textiles expert evaluated several women’s cotton/spandex boot-cut jeans in that price range, looking for sewing and fabric flaws, washing one pair of each five times, opening stitching at the waist to examine construction, and checking zippers.

What you read may surprise you!
