The Five Most Expensive Jeans in the World

Jeans are supposed to have started out as pants that were suitable for wear by workers. However, it is amusing to note that jeans started becoming more and more ornamental at a very early point in their existence, as shown by a 1935 mention of the intentional practice of distressing the denim in order to create a more fashionable look. Nowadays, jeans have become more popular than ever, so it should come as no surprise to learn that there are more expensive pairs of jeans than ever.

Here are five examples of the most expensive pairs of jeans ever produced:

APO Jeans – $4,000

It is not unknown for a pair of APO jeans to have a price of $4,000 per pair. In part, this is because its jeans have been customized to suit the personal preferences of the customer. However, the bigger part of the cost comes from the fact that APO jeans tend to incorporate some rather expensive materials. For example, their pockets are made out of silk, while their rivets can be made using either gold, silver, or platinum. Moreover, their button can be made out of a diamond, which is why APO jeans can actually come with certificates of authenticity for the precious materials used in their creation. Needless to say, the material of the APO jeans are made out of the finest denim as well.

Escada Custom Made Jeans – $10,000

Escada jeans are rather similar to APO jeans in the sense that they are custom-made for their customers as well. As a result, a pair of Escada jeans can run the full range of jean prices, particularly since there are so many customization possibilities that they are willing to accommodate. For example, if someone wants some kind of pattern embroidered on their Escada jeans, they can get that done so long as they are willing to pay for it. Regardless, the reason that Escada jeans made the list is because someone once ordered a pair of jeans that had been encrusted with Swarovski crystals, which came to a price of $10,000.

Levi Strauss & Co. Jeans – $60,000

Technically, Levi Strauss & Co. wouldn’t have spent that much to make their jeans in the 19th century. Furthermore, their jeans wouldn’t have sold for that much in that same period of time, seeing as how they would have been nothing more than a normal pair of jeans for their time. However, those pairs of jeans that have managed to make it into the present day have picked up huge historical value, particularly for people who are fans of Levi Strauss & Co. As a result, it is not uncommon for jeans from the 19th century to command high prices at various auctions. Over time, various auctions have produced figures ranging from $46,000 to $60,000.

Dussault Apparel Trashed Denim – $250,000

Sometimes, contrast can help enhance something’s beauty by enabling its separate elements to stand out that much more. Other times, well, suffice to say that contrast can get very confusing very fast. In the case of Dussault Apparel’s Trashed Denim, each pair of jeans has been washed no fewer than 13 times before undergoing further manual processing to create that fashionable distressed denim look. However, this is followed up by the addition of a diamond, two rubies, and further detailing using both rose gold and white gold, which is why each pair of these jeans costs $250,000. One can’t help but wonder why Dussault Apparel’s designers chose to combine distressed denim with so much ostentation, but presumably, they had their reasons.

Secret Circus – $1.3 million

Those who are interested in seeing what a $1.3 million pair of jeans looks like can check out Secret Circus’s offerings, which actually come in a number of patterns. In short, each pair of these jeans have patterns sewn onto their back pockets, which are formed using numerous diamonds of high quality. Something that explains much about their price tag. On the whole, some of the Secret Circus jeans actually look pretty good, but it seems probable that there are a lot of people out there who would dispute whether they look $1.3 million good or not, which is after all, a huge sum of money to be spending on a single piece of clothing.
