Default $9 jeans

Anyone tried them? At BigW- I bought a pair. I also bought a raspberry coloured pair at DJ's which cost x12 as much, but I had a voucher so in the end they cost me nothing. Both fit really well, and apart from the quality of the stitching there is little to tell them apart before washing.

I'm glad you clarified they were from Big W. I thought for a moment that you were behind the designer jeans robbery

Not tried the Big W ones but have bought the $10 K-Mart jeans. They're not bad for cheapy jeans. Will stop by Big W on my way home for a squiz tonight.

Are they the ones that ghastly woman from ACA was talking about in the ad last night? I hate DJ and Myers, so pretentious it's not funny.

I was going to buy some cheap $18 ones but teen reminded me they were probably made by some indonesian/chinese kid in a sweat shop.

Then dragged me out the store, teens eh

The ones made by kids are better - they have better eyesight and little hands for fine stitching.

Of course. Everything sold in the UK is made by highly paid workers, doing short working days in pristine, safe and modern factories.

The £10 are made by child slaves paid with pennies instead of sweets
