    what are you looking for in a pair of jeans? Style, comfort, details, heritage, brand?

    If you ask the question before july, the sale is on and there are GREAT buys at $250 and below!

    My favourites are Red Ear Jeans from Paul Smith, $479 to $699 before 50% discount during the club 21 sale. Japanese demin, vintage looms, crazy details, selverages in certain cuts.

    If you are looking for funky Levis, my recommendation is to hop over to KL, they got lots of great limited editions at about $100-$150, S'pore you have to folk add $100 for similar pair.

    G Star or Tsubi jeans. although Tsubi = leg hugging...

    these two are apparently up there in terms of street fashion. not that I am a great commentator of such news, but this is what I hear from people who are more fashion oriented than myself.

    Limited to 488 pieces? Hmm...not sure if the one i tried is the 1947 repro, but the cutting is abit slimmer than the regular 501s...

    How much did you pay for the repro?

    Btw, do you know where can i find the Capital E's in Singapore?

    Thanks.

    If you like to find a cheaper source, Istean Scotts 3rd level as a Levis fair as the corner and I did manage to find a few Captial E's selling at $249 and a few Selevage jeans selling around $179.

    If you premium jeans from Levis, you can go either to its flagships stores at Rafffles City or Herren.

    I would guess my jeans retails from $399 to $599 but I got it from a offer price.
