David Kahn jeans are a designer brand of jeans sold at higher end retail stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, and Sax’s Fifth Avenue. David Kahn Jeans are a more moderately priced jean than some designer brands, costing between $75 and $125 at full retail. They can sell on eBay for up to $50 used depending on size, style, and color.
This brand has been featured on fashion blogs including Denimology, Denim Blog, and These Days. An added bonus, some celebrities including Katherine Heigl, Audrina Patridge, Maria Menounos, Elizabeth Banks, Kristin Cavallari, and Olivia Munn have been spotted by paparazzi wearing David Kahn. Amber Heard graced the cover of Women’s Health in December 2011 wearing a pair of plain medium-washed denim pencil-leg David Kahn jeans with a bright red tank top. Midriff showing, of course.
A little different than well-known brands like Miss Me, Citizens of Humanity, or Seven for All Mankind, David Kahn jeans are known for their brightly colored fabrics or unique and sometimes loud patterns. They come in plain understated denim as well, but the press hits on their site show the bright colored or patterned styles. David Kahn Jeans are great to sell on eBay because they are rarely faked.
More expensive brands like True Religion, Dolce & Gabbana, Diesel, and Hudson Jeans are regularly faked. Selling replica or knock-off jeans on eBay can get a seller suspended, so many sellers feel it is best to skip the high end brands that can be faked and stick with moderately priced jeans that usually aren’t. Blue jeans, sunglasses, and handbags are the three most counterfeited items on the street.
If you are an eBay seller who sells clothing anyway, keep your eyes open for David Kahn Jeans when you are out shopping at thrift stores, consignment stores, or garage sales. The construction is solid, the fabric feels exquisite, and the cut is usually flattering for a woman’s figure.
