The Sunday Times are surprised to find that in these economically challenging times there is a denim brand out there able to charge people over £1000 for a pair of jeans. If you pop along to Browns in London you will find the above pair of Balmain’s Motorcyle Skinny jeans on sale for £1060. Cathy Horyn, fashion critic of The New York Times is quoted as saying she finds the price “offensive” whilst Balmain themselves responded by stating that “the price of the jeans reflected the quality of workmanship and the fabrics used.” I am not entirely sure that anyone can truly justify charging £1000 for a pair of jeans but I am delighted that there is someone out there that is managing it!
