I've just realised why I hadn't bought any Jeans for the past 50 years.
As a young man, the style of jeans I liked would probably have been laughed at. But as an X year old they are suddenly acceptable.
I hate skinny jeans, I really dislike jeans with stupid rips all over the legs, and I certainly wouldn't wear ridiculously pre-bleached jeans.
Jeans for me should be hard-wearing, comfortable, and reasonably baggy. In other words; old codger's jeans (see above).
My recently purchased (2) pairs of miser's (cheap) jeans should see me out. They are made of industrial strength denim, and were probably stitched together by Taiwanese weight-lifters. They are super tough.
I like them, and I don't care what anyone says!
