$150 for jeans? I don't think so. At least not for me.

As always - what the market will bear! ……. Consumers determine what businesses can get away with.

on items that are OPTIONAL - simply boycott them and if the movement gets large enough, change will happen - popcorn - rediculous; eye glasses - shop around; wedding dresses - ok , pay the price but have it designeed so it can be easily modified into a cocktail/evening dress; Phone - keep yours another year and then by a xx.1 lower model, just one model out of date; its just called practical use of Your money instead of being sold on "you ain't cool if you dont have the latest" . Only the consumers are the fools

Much like modern art,, diamonds are virtually worthless. A joke on society.

Robin Kimber, you are certainly correct. Selling price is never equal to production cost alone.
