Would you buy Lee or Levi jeans for $20?

That's what most people here in Thailand, and many other Asian countries pay, some even less. The catch is they're fake, not that you can tell the difference. Would you buy the cheap ones, bearing in mind they're made equally as well as the originals, or would you pay $100 + for the original?

I personally love levi's it is worth your money when you buy the original one it will last for many years and the nice thing about it, is really looks good when it is old. I love the style and texture, I have some few pants and shirt made by levi's some my husband gave to me as a gift but most pants I have is made by local manufacturer here in my country.

I almost never wear jeans. I wear shorts when I'm not dressed up for work. However, I wouldn't pay $100 just for a brand name when I can get something of equal quality for $20.

But it is more important to purchase a pants that cost $100 and you can use for 10 years rather than buying $20 and it was useless for a year lol! I really invest for the quality of the product and not the brand.

Is it really as good as the original? Because here in the Philippines, the fake ones aren't as good. I'm not really brand conscious but I also won't buy fake items. What I'll do is just buy the unbranded ones or the brands that are less known. Not rip-offs.

Actually both originals and copies are sometimes made on the same production line, so they're identical.

I hardly ever wear jeans, and I'd never pay $100 for a pair.
