Readers Respond: Are High End Jeans for Kids Worth the Hefty Price Tags?

Responses: 5

By

Premium jeans are on the wish list of fashionable kids everywhere. Some feel they fit kids' bodies better, are made of higher quality denims and are more fashionable. Others think they are just too expensive for kids. What do you think?

high end jeans for kids worth the price?

No, denim is denim. I can put a Tommy Hilfiger tag on a pair of reasonably priced jeans, give them a Hilfiger look and they wouldn't know the difference. All brands of jeans have different sizing difference. A good pair of Gap or Old Navy, even Levis will look just as good when accessorized.. Carol

Go For It--In Moderation!

I have a mix of expensive, designer clothing and more affordable, but still equally stylish clothing. I dress my kids in designer duds like Armani Junior and Burberry BUT not to the playground. They wear these while on a Starbucks run or going to the theatre where they are less likely to get them dirty. And if you find they are outgrowing them, just get them a size bigger and have them tailored; and retailor them when they grow a bit. Do I thiink it's worth it? Yes. I didn't get to wear designer brands as a child, and it makes me proud to see our kids where them, plus they really enjoy wearing them and they wear cheaper brands like Old Navy while at the playground or Wonderland where they are running around like wild horses.

My opinion

Personally as a teenager i like having designer jeans but i would never be able to afford them new. If you shop around and buy them used you can pay the same price as a cheap pair of jeans. I personally think that the fit and look is much nicer but if bought for a younger child then the pants should only be used on nicer occasions and if you do have the money for them then get them (they are worth it).

My jeans don't cost that much!

I have to say, when I see little kids wearing $200 jeans, my blood boils. It's not just that it's a waste of money to buy something like that for someone who's going to grow out of it in six months. It's that kids should be able to roll around in the mud in their play clothes and not worry about their parents freaking out about the cost.
