Grey Ant's High Waist Braid Jeans are tricky to wear. With the heavy detailing, butt-hugging fit, and wide leg, we're not sure these jeans have mass appeal. Thus, we're a bit perplexed: Why is Urban Outfitters producing their own copy? Most of Gray Ant's signature touches appear in the Urban version (braiding, high waist, wide leg), but the elimination of additional braiding on the front pockets makes them a bit easier to wear. We do like the Grey Ant fabric better though, because it's softer. But jeans like this will only work if they're tailored perfectly, and even then, it's a stretch. So would you pay the $330 for the high end pair? Or would you try to work the $68 version, which may be more likely to look bad Urban knock-offs (which, well, they are...)? --SABRINA BACON
