Dear 100 Hour Board,

I am fed up with low-rise jeans! They're everywhere! Where can I find boot-cut, NON-low-rise jeans that come in tall sizes (that preferably don't cost a fortune!)?

A: Dear modest bender over,

AMEN, Sister! I have the same problem trying to find cute, tall, and modest jeans. The two best places I've found are Old Navy ($28-32/ea), and Lane Bryant ($39.50). Now children, what have we learned today? That right! We've learned that clothing designers and retailers have a racket going, charging prices that high!

A: Dear Someone,
You can also try the DI--they have a lot of nice jeans (really, they do) that you can try for your wearing pleasure and see if anything works for cheap prices.
