Look up “blue jeans” on MerriamWebster.com, and the term is simply defined as, “Pants usually made of blue denim.” Ah, if it were only that simple!
On average, Americans say they’ve spent, at most, $44.50 on a pair of jeans. That’s according to the latest Marist Poll. That number jumps when looking at younger Americans and those who make more money. U.S. residents under the age of 45 say the most they’ve spent on a pair of jeans is $52.51, and Americans in households with an annual income of $50,000 or more say they’ve purchased jeans for $52.88.
