Can you tell the difference?

I believe that you DO get what you pay for.  The higher price can afford you nicer, softer, longer-lasting items.  And some items are totally worth it!

However, sometimes, price is relative.  Some items receive a higher price simply for the brand name.  And depending on the item and your intended use, you may give away a bit of quality to save big.  The key is to know how to scope out the best deal that works for your pocket and your style.

I found a few items that seem comparable, yet differ greatly in price.  Can you tell the difference?
