In this video, Motley Fool consumer goods editor Austin Smith takes a look at two comparable high-end jeans brands, The Buckle and True Religion, to see whether he can diagnose for us which of the two is the better buy. Many on paper might be tempted to say True Religion initially, because it's slightly cheaper and has experienced explosive growth recently. But Austin takes us through some of the specifics of The Buckle, such as the company's high inside ownership percentage and its regular issuance of a special dividend, that may make us want to look twice.
