World's Most Expensive Jeans

Forbes has the scoop on the most expensive jeans. They cite trends towards custom-fitted denim and lots of added detailing, including embroidery and crystals, as major reasons that prices were driven upwards, but not every pair on their list has these features. The single most expensive pair was 115-year old Vintage Levis sold on eBay for US$60,000, followed by the significantly newer Ernest Sewn custom jeans, which cost up to US$1,000 per pair.
Other pairs of jeans which made their names were Levis iPod Jeans, Denim for Immortality Jeans or design your own jeans at Denim Design Lab.

People who actually spend that kind of money of a pair of jeans have more money than sense and need a punch in the face.

I'm not too keen on the whole dirty, ripped, bleached, dyed denim look. You could just wear a standard pair of jeans for years and years and get that look naturally. I have a pair of Levi's I've had since I was 15 and they still fit fine. They have tears and holes in places, but still look cool. Difference being - I didn't pay an insane amount of money for them.
