A good deal for sure. F.Y.I. they were also this price last weekend as part of the Black Friday sale. I picked up a couple of pairs. And if you miss this sale, they are $50.99 from the online catalog

Just a question. What's the difference between a $90 pair of jeans and a $20 pair of jeans?

I've got a $90 pair of Levis that I bought on sale for about $50, and around the same time I bought a pair of $50 jeans from Bluenotes on sale for about $25. The main difference I've noticed between the two is that the Bluenotes jeans seem to be made of thinner denim material than the Levis, and they have faded more as well.

Truthfully, the primary difference is that I know exactly what size to buy without even trying them on. I can just grab a pair based on the waist and inseam measures and head to the cash.

A no-name brand from WalMart or Zellers costs less, but then I'd have to try them on to see whether they fit is appropriate for my body shape, and then I'd probably need to try 2 or 3 pairs to see whether the waist and inseam are just right.

It's not a big deal, but the $40 pair is just way easier and more pleasant than horsing around with trying on clothes at WalMart. But it is true that it's an expensive convenience.

- The Material
- The fitting (ie: quality of craftsmanship)
- The style

You'll often notice v.cheap jeans don't have much style. You won't get the nice washed patterns. Most are default straight jeans if not, work jeans (meaning it's extremely wide) making you look like a stick man in Santa's pants.

I spend a bit more on clothes in general to get a better fit that gives a better overall appearance based on your body shape. The material is for comfort and how appropriate it is for the type of weather within the season and the style of course.

I've noticed that too. There's is a noticeable difference in the material and quality of Levi's versus other cheaper brands.

I agree, Levis have always been a quality budget jean to me. That said I would sale levi quality has dropped off a bit. I buy usually levis and silvers and have found the silvers last about 50% longer. Problem is silver always messes with there cut.

And so who makes the Kirkland jeans sold at Costco. They seem to be good quality and at a good price. Could be Levi knockoffs?

Try this:

Take your $20 no-name pair and a telephone and call the manufacturer's customer service about a problem with the jeans. Not the retailer, the manufacturer.

Do the same with the Levi Strauss product.

What were the results of the phone calls?

Admittedly you can just return the Costco jeans. But if manufacturer support is important at all to you, stick with the Levi Strauss.

You're kidding, right? What's the difference between Toyota Corolla and Aston Martin DBS, besides the price? Or what's the difference between cheap Alberta Vodka or Grey Goose?

QUALITY!!!!

For example, I still have a pair of Diesel jeans bought in 1998, and still looking good...so made in Italy vs made in China-Walmart crap, it's up to you....
Yes, some will say I'll never buy pants that expensive but over the years you spent about the same amount of money on the crappy pants since you have to change them more often as they wear, wash out and tear more - that is if you care how you look, but a lot of the people don't I guess.....
