Is anyone else finding Denim & Co. way more expensive than it used to? $50 for sweater w/ hood that's nothing special in fabric or design, knit pants for $44. This used to be the Q's affordable in house brand. Since there's no middle man (or woman), can't imagine the reasoning behind the price jump.

I do agree. For what it is, it is too expensive.

Yes, the prices have gone ridiculously high for the quality...but so have other brands, here and elsewhere. Pretty soon, nobody's gonna be able to afford clothes---and won't that be a lovely sight! Woman Surprised Woman Embarassed

I agree @Shanus.  I really liked a plaid top they had on the Tuesday Carolyn show.  But when I figured what I would be paying for it...about $50.  So not worth it for what it was.

@Pat from florida  I agree. Warning: last night I received 69 negative replies because I used caps and they said I was shouting! I personally don't care. I use caps all the time in headings and to emphasize a word. Never heard of SHOUTING!

I have been looking for a nice plaid shirt but don't want to look like a lumberjack.   A host on another channel was wearing one in a FB photo she posted and said it was from HSN.  I went to look and it was $80.00!!!  No thanks.

 

I did pick up one from Kohls during a Black Friday sale.  It was only $9.99.  By the time I got there, everything was very limited though.  I'm still looking for a black and red plaid.

Seems everything is getting expensive. It's forcing me to look harder and longer for affordable prices. Even then I see very few items that I can't live without. I've come to the point where I'm really trying to make smart decisions and many times I end up removing things from my shopping cart simply because they are too expensive.

I used to look to D&Co. for what I call my "around the house outfits". I bought their sweatshirt style shirts, sweaters and tees and knit pants or elastic waist pull on jeans. These were my staples when I was staying in, cooking, cleaning, working in my studio, etc. Now they're too expensive to think of theses pieces as "ok to get dirty". I have found some reasonable inexpensive pieces at TJ Maxx and Target.
