Dirty Jeans

It was time to go shopping.  All of my good looking jeans had worn out enough that they have become Around-The-Farm-Jeans. For around $40 I could buy a pair of jeans that look worse than my worst pair of Around-The-Farm-Jeans.  What's up with that?  It was actually hard to find a pair of clean looking jeans.  Have people become so lazy that they have to buy clothing that makes them look like they have actually had a life other than staring at their phones texting all day?

I'm annoyed that jeans cost $40.
I don't wear jeans that much. Usually wear sweats around the farm and khakis at work.

The reason jeans look like crap these days is because the new generation won't actually work to get them looking worn and need to buy them that way. :-)

I rarely wear jeans anymore either. Primarily because they cost forty bucks a pair. I get a good pair for when I have to dress clean and try to keep them that way. Usually I either wear sweats or BDU's. They are much more comfortable and have bigger pockets.

Careful! You don't want to become one of those grouchy old guys who spends their days on the porch complaining about the damn kids and their wacky clothes.

g, Sweats? Have you given up or have you stopped doing anything that requires protective clothing?

Darev, What is a BDU? Is that a midwest garment?

Mark, you've been reading long enough to know that I am one of those grouchy old guys, though I have been keeping it to myself more and more lately mostly because no one cares what I think and secondly because if I said what I think I would be committed.

I wonder if it's related to when I got blocked or hacked or whatever a few months ago. I'm doomed to the time-out corner for life!

pah. Blogger can suck it.

Now that one got through just fine. I know, blogger does seem to have more problems since the update, but I have too much content to move elsewhere, and for the life of me I can't figure out Tumblr. Not sure how much more writing I have in me anymore.

Levis 501 shrink to fit.
The same thing I have worn since I was 13.
Ms. Gearhead buys a few pair every time they go on sale so we have stacks of them brand new, never worn here and there.
I know there are at least two stacks of them under the bed. Some on the shelf in the bedroom closet.
A pile of them in the office closet.
We both have the "depression era mentality".

By god when the banks fail I will have jeans (the kind I've always wore) for the rest of my life.
Oh, and I love my levis jacket as well!
HEY! AND,,AND Catapiller boots!
At least 6 pair on the shelf at all times.
By God, I've got mine!

Gearhead, It's your uniform. You forgot to mention the short sleved shirts. In the 12+ years we've known one another we've always had a predictable dress code. The uniform of the American proleteriat.
