WTF to do?
    #11238922 - 10/13/09 01:36 PM (8 years, 6 months ago)

One of my friends gave me some jeans that cost $380, first off I do not, and never will wear anything that cost that much, im a fan of plain clothes with no logos on them, I am not a fan of "high fashion" since I destroy all my clothing while hunting mushrooms or working in the garden, I had no idea that any company made jeans that cost that much, why would someone pay that much for jeans?

I would rather pay that much for something that is actually worth that much, like supplies for my gardens, or some cacti.

They only have a little bit of damage so im thinking I can sell them for at least 175-250 online, what do you think?

I dont want to offend the person when they find out I sold them. What would you do?

make high-dollar cleaning rags out of them.
$300+ jeans (or any clothing for that much $) is fucking disgusting imho.
i have a hard enough time spending $60 on a pair of american eagle jeans, but i know they last for years and years.

Just be honest with the person that gave you the jeans and tell them you think $380 for jeans is excessive. Let them know that they can have the jeans back if they want, but if they don't take them back you intend to sell the jeans. As long as you are respectful and frame it as a difference in personal preference you friend wouldn't have reason to be offended.


--------------------
The story goes, or the way that I was told
There was a king that always felt too high and then he fell too low
And so he called all the wise men to the hall
And begged them for a gift to end the rises and the falls
But here’s the thing, they came back with a ring
It was simple and was plainly unbefitting of a king
Engraved in black, it had no front or back
But there were words around the band that said
Just know: This Too Shall Pass

how well worn are they?  did they buy them brand new for you, or give them to you used?

why didn't you just tell them as soon as they gave the jeans to you?

"i'm sorry, but i simply can't accept this gift.  it costs too much, i'd feel guilty."

Because I didnt want to offend them, I had helped this person out with a job and they felt as if they owed me something so they gave me some jeans they wore a few times.:shrug:

The brand is True Religion, check out their website, normal looking jeans are like 180-280, these are special addition which is why they cost so much.:tongue:

i guarantee you they'd be way more offended if they found out you sold them behind their back than if you had let them know up front you weren't comfortable with such a gift.
