$1000 Amiri Jeans vs $14 Jeans: Don’t Believe The Hype

Complex’s weekly series Don’t Believe the Hype takes a look at what’s hot and what’s just hot air. Sneakers, clothes, tech, food—nothing is safe. One of the most hyped and expensive pair of designer jeans are made by Amiri, ringing up for around $1,000 a pair. Rappers like Future and A Boogie love them, but what if they look just like a pair of jeans you can buy for $14 at H&M? Find out if Complex staffers think the designer jeans are equal to their value, or just washed out in this episode of Don’t Believe The Hype.

Would have been cruel but hilarious if they gave the dude the $14 pair in the end to see if he could really tell the difference.

Johnuel Collado says:

Fuck H&M for sellin 14$ jeans exclusively for small bitch ass niggas

Johnster7107 says:

There’s a huge quality difference. Not saying it’s worth it but of course the amiris are better.  Especially the quality of the distressing makes a huge difference.

Sean Mathews says:

I wouldn’t just throw 1k on the jeans however, if I have money dedicated for jeans then yes. I would still need to try the jeans but I’m convinced that they’d be comfortable and fitting.

brenton catfish says:

Expensive clothing companies get a little bit of edge when they are able to prove how their clothes are worth more money, it’s been done before with shoes, specifically when talking about the materials etc for example with: Sport shoes and sneakers lol as well as waterproof jackets but yeh.#Smart.#Business.

mrmegastone1 says:

huh says:

All you dirty niggers getting mad at complex about h&m

Pasquinel van der Leest says:

If I’m gonna spend a stack on jeans, it better be balmains

Tony McQueen says:

Never say Never! If you had the coins and weren’t living paycheck to paycheck you’d pay any amount for whatever you like/love. I used to say that I’d never spend over $100 on a pair of shoes. That’s when I made minimum wage tho! LOL I just bought my first pair of shoes that were significantly over $100 and my pockets ain’t hurting! Nah mean?!
