I think the most I've ever spent on a pair of jeans is $50, and for shirts, no more than $30. These clothes do not last long-- the shirts, particularly long sleeved, the elbows get stretched out (can't stand that) and the material shows wear almost immediately. As for jeans, well the jeans aren't so bad-- I can wear those for a year maybe once a week or less before it's time to get rid of them. But what about higher quality clothing? Let's say shirts that are $80+, which I know is starting low because I've seen the numbers for some really high end stuff. And jeans starting at $100+? What is the "lifespan"? Is it much different? What is it about them? I don't even know brands to start looking into. ?? Thanks!
