Today I went shopping at Costco and got a portable hard drive for my media files to free up space on my Laptop for installed programs. The drive is working out great BTW… While I was there, I browsed the clothing section for Blue Jeans and found some very good buys…
My curiosity got the best of me, so I decided to buy a pair of each and see if the higher priced jeans are worth the extra money. I suspect the major difference between these, are the cut and stitching etc..
My experiment will be to wear and wash each pair equally.. that is, if I wear the Kirkland Jeans for 3 days before washing, I’ll do the same with each other brand. *(readers, don’t worry, I usually only wear jeans 2 days before considering them “dirty”)
The end of the experiment will be determined by one of the following items:
- Comfort – A clear distinction in comfort will be the first clencher.
- Breakage – Hierarchically speaking, the last jean standing wins!
I also don’t want to obsess too much over this, so I decided not to add any more requirements to this experiment.. Happy experimenting!
UPDATE!!! – 1/20/2008
I just threw all 3 pairs into the wash…!
So far, after the first wearing.. 2x for each pair, and several pairs of shorts later (to explain the last 10 days) I like the Calvin Kleins best, because of the overall fit. I like the Lucky’s second, but they’re a little too baggy, and finally the Kirkland Jeans third because they are far less “crotch friendly” as the others (I know, too much info, but it’s my blog and I can type what I want, so there 🙂 .. )
you know those jeans were made by 5 year olds in some 3rd world country for $.02/day in labor, right! and the more expensive jeans were made right after the cheaper ones. do you feel good about that?
So, where can I buy non-3rd world country jeans?
I’ve been waiting patiently for the results of this experiment – it’s been more than ten days! 3pairs of jeans times 3 wearings each + 1 day for washing = 10 days. So, what’s the scoop?! Is it the Lucky Jeans? I bet it’s the Lucky Jeans! Please say it’s the Lucky Jeans…that way I’ll feel more confident about my prior decision to spend too much money on jeans, too!
haha! I just threw them into the wash…! so far though, after the first wearing.. 2x for each pair, and several pairs of shorts later (to explain the 10 days) I have decided I like the Calvin Kleins best, because of the overall fit. I like the Lucky’s second, but they’re a little too baggy, and finally the Kirkland Jeans third because they are far less “crotch friendly” (as I like to call it.. I know too much info, but it’s my blog and I can type what I want, so there 🙂 .. ) than the others.
