$46,000.00+ for a pair of Levi's Jeans!

Forbes.com has a very interesting article on Jeans and the business of manufacturing them. I was very surprise to read that Levi Strauss & Co. bought a pair of Levi's Jeans from 1880 for the sum of $46,532.00. Well, I am sure that Levi Strauss & Co, has plenty of discretionary income to do this: according to the Forbes article just women's jeans alone in 2004 were $7.4 billion in profits, and most likely on the rise since then.

These are some of the couture and ready to wear jeans and their price tag (in US dollars):


Escada $10,000.00


APO $4,000.00


Escada $3,250.00


Dolce & Gabbana $2,995.00


Dior by John Galliano $1,700.00


Cavalli $1,440.00


Chanel $1,120.00


Stella McCartney $575.00


Gucci $460.00


Moschino $420.00
