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!
