Rockin’ Recession, Tom Ford Blues

I just got word of Rock & Republic’s new recession jeans... and I would have to say guys- now is the time to buy. There jeans usually retail at about $300, but the new recession jeans will be a staggering $130— hey that’s cheap for them. And that’s without the store sale, so I figure you’ll be able to buy these for $80-$100 at some point. They come in 2 styles: straight leg (Neil) and skinny (Colburg). The jeans will be available March 1st at rockandrepublic.com. Looks like some of you will be upgrading the wardrobe .

Neil jean, $132 and Colburg jean, $138

But on the opposite end of the spectrum WWD reports Tom Ford is saying, “Fck the Recession” (he didn’t literally say that, lol) and has created a pair of $990 jeans... yeah you read that correct. Nine hundred and ninety dollars…


Check out the excerpt (from wwd.com):

Tom Ford is taking designer denim to a whole new stratosphere with men’s jeans that retail for $990. The jeans, hitting stores now, are made from Japanese selvaged denim that feels and looks raw, but has been pre-washed and pre-shrunken so the indigo doesn’t rub off. They also come in black or white. The seat is distinguished merely by a straight line, stitched across the pockets, and a small black tab reading TF001 or TF002. The first number designates the boot cut that Ford wears himself, and the second is a straight-leg cut. In the front, the button is plated with 18-karat gold, and the pockets are lined with the same silk as Tom Ford suits. But is the price justified for classic, unembellished jeans? If you have to ask, you can’t afford them.

I can just hear him now, “Fck the recession” “hahahaha”.
I don’t know why, but…. I’m sort of lovin it, lol.

  1. HA! I LOVE TOM FOR THIS. IF I COULD I WOULD BY THEM

  2. I’ll definitely get a pair of the RR jeans, but the Tom Ford jeans? Thats pretty inconsiderate in some aspects, but if I had the money I would maybe buy a pair.

  3. RRs for 130, i wonder if the quality will be the same- i guess they would tho.

  4. OriginallyTailored

    Not really a RR fan, i guess its that big ass logo on the back lol. Tom Ford is that dude though, his suits are like honey combs cereal..that damn good.

  5. 18k? a little excessive, dontcha think
