“If you’re paying $300 for jeans, you’re paying too much, Labrecquesays.So the sweet spot, especially if you’re considering cost per wear, issomewhere in the mid $100s. Your jeans will cost more than fastfashion, but you will get good mileage out of them, wear after wear.Under $75, they won’t last – so each wear costs more. “Cheap isexpensive,’’ Labrecque remarks.As you move up in price brackets, your jeans will cost more per wear.Say you buy those L.A. numbers for $450, and wear them about once aweek for a year. That’s almost $9 per wear.Your $150 jeans, worn weekly for a year, ring in at about $3 per wear.As for those buckled Guccis, maybe you would wear them 10 times – fora lofty $320 per wear.And the pretty Pradas? They’re very, very special so we might wearthem twice in their first year. And then, who knows, lose them in the backof the closet. Ouch.
