Should You Shell Out for Designer Jeans?
The magazine rated Lucky jeans highly when it came to a lack of shrinkage; however, the material was so distressed that the material could deteriorate and make holes. Levi's, Gap and Old Navy had the best construction but did shrink a bit. Bottom line, it's a matter of preference as to whether or not you want to pay the extra bucks for expensive jeans. One way to stretch your jeans dollar is to invest in a midpriced brand you like and look for a dark wash - these look more expensive than lighter washes. Dry clean jeans or wash them turned inside out to retain the dye in cold water. Never dry jeans - the fabric will deteriorate more quickly. Try to refrain from washing jeans too much - if you can get through a couple of wears without having to wash them, they'll hold up longer.
