I don't get it. Why not take your old worn down favorite pair of Wranglers and get a $30 bedazzler at your bead store and bling them out yourself? It's cheaper, you KNOW you're comfy and you can customize the bling yourself! P: I dunno maybe I'm just more into the crafty crap. I bling my own tack too P:
Yeah but how will anyone know what brand you're riding in if you don't tell them? Does it really make you a better rider to have a brand name stamped on the annoying tags inside your clothes? I don't think any pair of jeans is worth more than $100regardless of the fit/feel/brand name. :/
QH what kind of saddle is that? Don't mean to hijack! BUT I will say my Miss Mes are so comfortable and the bling does really stay on. I never pay full price I check out sale racks and shops at rides. I scored a pair of last year Miss Me and Rock and Roll Cowgirl for $30 a pair! Can't beat that. I have to buy a size up too though for my butt, which makes them way to long. Share some height Amber. ;) 5' 2" and not growing anytime soon here. ):
People who buy those jeans recognize those jeans and can appreciate it.. I like wearing them and I'm probably going to keep wearing them..personal preference and it's no different in me asking you why you only want to wear the plain jeans? Everyone can wear those.. I want to stand out. If I look good I feel good and when you feel good and you're confident you ride better..
I don't wear just plain jeans. I buy plain jeans and then self-decorate them. But I don't ride competitively so I'd rather wear plain, form-complementing jeans in the saddle than have to worry about if a ton of beads/rhinestones/sequins fell off on the trail. I've also had the butt decorated in beads/rhinestones on brand-name jeans before that I wore to school back when I went to school. It was a serious pain to sit in a desk with those I couldn't bear how it'd feel riding in them especially on a horse with no rhythm and a choppy stride. It'd kill me! If the jeans are cut to complement my form that's all I need. I get enough color and bling on my shirts and in my hair that I'd rather my seat and legs were comfortable than fancy lol. But that's just me.
To me whether jeans came jeweled already/brand name or not is the same as weather you bleached and then tore the front of your jeans yourself or if you paid an extra $200 for the name to be stitched on them. I mean. . . In the end all you're doing is free advertising for the brand (for those with brands visible on the jeans) basically you're paying the company to advertise for them.
I just wanna say - I don't think they look bad. Sparkly jeans can and do look good I just don't care for 'brand names'. Hell I'd even trade my saddle over to someone else if they gave me a saddle that was twice as comfy whether it had a brand or not!
