Would You Spend $1,200 on a Pair of Jeans?

We don't know about you, but spending three figures on a pair of jeans feels like a lot to us. And now, some celebs and other wealthy New Yorkers are paying four. 3x1 in New York City's SoHo makes custom jeans that range from $1,200 to $1,500 -- and basketball players Tony Parker and Steve Nash are scooping them up.

3x1 owner Scott Morrison previously launched Paper Denim & Cloth and Earnest Sewn, high-end denim brands known for their $200 price tag (which seemed insane a decade ago). And even though these new "bespoke" jeans are made from scratch, the cost is pretty outrageous, especially given the current state of the economy.

"You want them to look good, but I find it crazy when jeans get it up in the hundreds, even $200," celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch told The New York Post. "Is there cashmere in them? Is there gold in them? Is there silk in them? Does Taylor Lautner come in them?"

It's even more ridiculous when you consider that you can get a pair of jeans at Uniqlo for $9.99 -- Taylor Lautner not included.

    No way! I need groceries, gas, electricity, etc. way before a 1,200 dollar pair of jeans.

    Then again I wouldn't get jeans unless you paid me. Still, $1,200 is way too much money to be spending on pants. Do something USEFULL with the $1,150 you are wasting, like donate to charity or something. Anyone who has that much money and can't think of anything better to spend it on should be giving it away anyway.

    my parents "way of shopping" has rubbed off on me-- look for the cheapest thing, even if it's one size to big/small. i'd rather use that kind of money on saving up for college, or traveling.

    Sounds like a waste for a pair of jeans that the casual observer couldn't tell from a discounted pair.

    It'd take a pretty fantastic pair of jeans to even get me to spend $12, considering that I'm used to thrift shop prices.

    just yesterday i was looking online at a great pair of jeans that i really liked and just about choked to death when i saw the $285 price. i shop thrift stores and yard sales. i won't waste money like that.

    No, because I can get way better jeans for less than 1/10 of that.

    What could possibly make a pair of jeans worth that kind of money? It would be wasted money. Even if I was rich, I would not waste money on extreme jeans.

    I'd sooner pay $50 for jeans and $1,150 for liposuction to look really great all of the time, but that wasn't an option or even a very good ideal. Time for some exercise... I'll walk to the fridge to get a fresh tub of bacon-horseradish dip for my bag of chips 8- )
