Okay, this will be the third time in about a year where I have written about outrageously priced jeans. First it was Tom Ford and his $990 jeans. Then there was a boutique brand called Key Closet who had a pair of $10,000 jeans. Yeah. Right. Now Hudson Jeans, under the helm of Ben Taverniti, has launched a custom line of hand-sewn jeans called Resurrection which will set the buyer back a cool $995.
The pattern of the jeans is cut from a large sheet made from old Hudson samples sewn together, which explains the random details in the photo. Where Tom Ford had gold plated buttons and a silk lining to empty your wallet, I guess that and the custom aspect are the reason for the cost. Who knows. What I really would like to know is if anyone is actually buying these super-premium jeans?
