NEW YORK — There’s still a core group of denim devotees who don’t shy away from spending $150 on a pair of jeans.
At least, that’s what some denim makers are saying. While the country is still struggling to pull through rough economic times — and despite some signs that the category as a whole is starting to slow after several hot years — high-end jeans vendors are not singing the blues. Their products are still selling, and they contend the reason is that women who can’t lay out the really big bucks for designer sportswear will still pay triple-digit prices for top-name jeans.
"I love to fight and I got into a lot of trouble, so instead, I thought I'd do it professionally," says Bellator MMA fighter Liam McGeary. #wwdfashion (📷: @andyboyle; Interview by @jeanpalmieri; Styled by @thealexbadia)
