A few months ago I had to throw out my favorite pair of jeans and by that time, well, I hadn’t been wearing them that much anyway. So of course my second favorite pair of jeans got the upgrade to numero uno (that’s Spanish for “Favorite pair of jeans”) but, unfortunately, they too will soon have to be thrown away.
Both these pairs of jeans are the same age – just over a year old. Which I guess is okay, but for someone who is used to wearing clothes for 4-5 years, it stinks. I wouldn’t be stressing about it so much, but now ANOTHER pair of jeans is going to have to be retired soon too – and these are like less than 6 months.
I’m sure at this point you’ve moved on to another, funnier, more interesting blog. But, in the rare chance you haven’t, I’m rewarding you with the reason why I keep having to retire my denim. It’s kind of a sensitive area for me, well, it’s a sensitive area for any male really, and in this sensitive area is where my jeans tend to develop holes. They start off pretty small but they grow quickly into sizeable vents.
Now it isn’t like I go commando (well, not everyday anyway), so I can usually continue to wear the jeans until the holes really become a problem. What really gets me is that I have to buy more jeans. I hate shopping. I don’t know what looks cool and usually I just end up frustrated and empty-handed. I would just buy the same ones as my cool jeans, but they don’t have them in the discount stores anymore, and there’s no way I’m going to pay the $225 that Bloomingdale’s wants for them.
If anyone happens to know a brand of jeans which doesn’t spontaneously create it’s own ball vents, I’d be happy to hear of it. Or if you happen to know where I can get a pair of Earnest Sewn’s for around $70.
