What's wrong with low price points? What, you'd rather pay $200 just so you're not considered a "budget consumer"? They're not even THAT cheap...same price in the US as most other high-end jeans.
And I'm really lost on why you think they try to copy Sevens? They look absolutely nothing like Sevens, their fits are different, etc. Lol. How random.
Fidelity jeans are made with Japanese denim and they've held up a lot better for me than other designer brands (such as True Religion which stretches so much and R&R which tears so easily). They holt their shape and have some great washes. They're also not as flashy as other brands. I'll post a photo of me wearing some once they're outta the wash.
Put them side by side, cut wise, wash wise everything.. They Rip off seven huge, they bring nothing new to the denim game, and so what if they use Japanese denim. It's still made in china. They are nothing but designer denim wana be jeans, and bring nothing new to the denim world. None of their cuts are ground breaking, they sell on price point alone. Which makes them no different than Guess or Parasuco, except they did a hell of a job marketing so that real stores like Holt Renfrew, Aritzia ect ect, would buy into them. They got some celebs to wear this crap and got magazines to push it as if they were the real deal. In 2 seasons you'll be buying them from Jean Machine for 109 bucks. You talk about the quality of your R&R's as if they are supposed to last forever. R&R's rip cause they are over distressed super soft stretch denim. You can't expect that kind of material to last forever. If you look at the most expensive silks and wools used in suiting and you'll see that the materials aren't exactly meant to last forever. The stuff is delicate, as for TR they do stretch, that’s why you go down 1-2 sizes, and as much as I hate TR’s the ugliest jean TR puts out still has more style than anything Fidelity puts out.
Their basic blue is a knock off of 7's NYD, their grey is a knok off od Citizens grey wash, their raw denim skinny came out wayy after diesels 86c wash. Their skinny didn't come out before the trend, it came out a season after the trend already hit which tells you they don't innovate, they just put out stuff while its hot and expect people to buy them cause thats the trend. They can't start trends, they can't even come up with a cut of their own. It's all repos of other jean brands popular jeans.
