The price is well beaten down to a P/E of around 12. I was happy buying at twice that back in November '03.

Good to hear the kids like it so well!

The True Religion jeans are outrageously expensive and I don't think they allow the retail stores to mark them down all that much. They are trying very hard to maintain that expensive image. True Religion is for people who are willing to spend a lot of money to "make their butts look good."

I'm with you, $35 jeans are the ticket for me. :)
