Can You Tell Which Patchwork Jeans Cost $420 More Than The Other?

Let’s be real, the fashion industry was way ahead of it’s time with the whole throwback nostalgia (before social media even existed). I mean, that’s practically what fashion is: recreating things from the past we loved so much. And that’s just the appeal behind a number of patchwork jeans that we’ve recently spotted. The second you lay your eyes on those trendy items, you’re thinking about the days you used to cover your Jansport backpacks and bleached denim jackets in retro-style patches. It wasn’t just a way to channel your inner hippie, it was a customized touch that showed off your personality and sense of style. The patchwork jeans available now, however, come with wide range of price points. How much would you spend on a pair and can you tell which one costs more than the other?

Answer: The jeans on the right are MOTHER‘s The Looker Skinny Jeans ($275) and the jeans on the left are 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s Patch-Covered Skinny Cargo Jeans ($695). We’re not exactly sure what justifies the major price difference (More patches? Hand-sewn patches? Sustainably sourced patches? Is that a thing?) but hey, if you’re looking for an even more budget-friendly pair, DIY the patchwork detail on your own jeans.
