J Brand Skinny Cargo Pants

J Brand Skinny Cargos . . . Worth It?

Weigh in on this post about J Brand's skinny cargos from OnSugar blog shut up, I love that shirt on you. Is it worth the splurge?

Ok, so over at Anthro we just received the new skinny cargo pants by J Brand, seen on Rihanna and Sea of Shoes' Jane Aldridge. They're seriously cool pants. I love the juxtaposition of the cargo style with the slim fit and tough ankle zips. The wash is also unlike any pants I've seen lately. I also hear they are sold out all over the place. However, as of last night, my size was still in-stock at Anthro.

So here's what I want to know, my dears. These pants are $228. That's a lot (and even with a discount, they're still expensive). It's the kind of money I don't really need to spend right now. However, they're so unique, and so hot right now, I wonder if I can resist.

So if they fit, should I splurge?

Just bought these tonight! Super cute. Im not a tiny girl (size 26 is what i bought) and they are flattering and slimming i thought....I wouldnt wear them with a crop top though! Overall I think they are worth the money. The zippers on the ankles are soooo great.

Wait for a sale or find something similar for less like everyone else suggested. They aren't that special. The price is outrageous.

wait, martin and osa are closing? we don't have them in miami, but I found one of their tees at filene's that I absolutely love! ok, now i'm sad a little too. but as for the cargo's, yeah, you should just try to find a similar style for a much cheaper price.

I had a pair of these a couple years back and they weren't flattering or comfortable.

I don't think it's worth spending that amount of money on a pair of cotton cargo pants considering they don't have a definitive design quality that sets them apart from other skinny cargo pants (i.e. zippers, leather accents, interesting pocket placement - anything!). Mango and Zara both have good quality cheaper options which are a good fit.

I love these too. But there are so many beautiful things out there for cheaper. I can live without it!!

I love these too, but I really think they are not so unique that you won't be able to find something similar for a more reasonable price. Cargos do tend to come back every few years but this particular look is so distinctive that I worry it will look dated in a season or two...
