Levi Strauss & Co. spent $46,532 buying a pair of its own jeans on an eBay auction in May 2001. The jeans were found in a Nevada mining town and date back to the 1880s. The company has no plans to resell them, because Levi's says they are priceless and one of a kind.

not really a fair comparison with clothing, it's more a historical object than a pair of jeans.

indeed, it's like a roman helmet and shit... since mining is the origin of the jeans...

btw, those redicilous prices for designer jeans are just insane...
