In the new issue of PEOPLE StyleWatch (The Ultimate Jeans Guide, on newstands now) you’ll find denim options for every style and budget, from $30 Old Navy flares to $850 limited-edition, handmade ones from Stitch’s. And what do you get for your money? The magazine breaks it down by fabric, wash, details, even the labor involved in making them. For the record, $850 buys you jeans that are handwashed in antique barrels, spun from exclusive Japanese fibers, and have buttons with black pearl centers (and they better make your butt look good.) If you found the perfect pair of jeans, how much would you pay for them? How much do you usually spend on a pair of jeans?
