Is One Pair of Jeans Worth An Entire Year (Depending On Where You Live) Of Rent?



Remember when Seven For All Mankind and Citizens of Humanity were all the hype? Ahh...the good ol' days. And after everyone on the planet shelled out their $130 to own a pair of the ever-trendy lines of designer denim, True Religion and Rock & Republic stepped up the designer denim craze, with jeans priced starting at around $200. And from there, boutique-friendly lines like Taverniti definitely set the denim scale high.

Well guess what, folks? Time to fold up your Frankie B.'s and Joes' because nothing--brace yourself--nothing will compare to this: Key Closet, a Los Angeles-based clothing company founded in 2006, just released a pair of jeans (pictured above) priced at $10,000 (yes, you read the four zeroes correctly). The jeans are adorned with more than 10,000 Tiffany-set Swarovski crystals for the thighs and one-carat diamonds on each back pocket, for a total of two carats for the booty. Additionally, the buttons on the back pockets are even made of white gold, and the graphics are accented with foil and hand spray paint to "enhance the look of pure glamour."

But don't go thinking these jeans were created all in vain. The designers are apparently donating 30 percent of all profits made off these blinged-out-booty pants to a charity that helps build schools in Uganda. That's a very generous donation; however, in order to have money to donate, people actually have to purchase the jeans. But then again, this is LA. so I'm sure there will be some home foreclosure taking part so that these fake ridiculous LA women can afford a damn pair of these jeans.
