It is funny how styles change and usually so slow you do not notice the BIG difference. When I was a kid the length of jeans didn’t matter, you rolled them up if they were too long. Now as an old guy I have to be careful in buying jeans. Whatever or whoever designs men’s jeans took a page from the guy/gal who designed panty hose with the number of different colors/ sizes and styles. I once got in trouble trying to figure which egg had the right panty hose in it. The package design was perfect, because it was like an Easter Egg hunt to me.
I have the same problem with jeans anymore. I did go in and grab a 32/31 and head out the door, but now? WHOA!
32/31 loose fitting
low riders (Probably have Erkels too)
Each in: washed, bleached, used, buttons, zippers, 5 pockets, 4 pockets, Blue, Black, tan etc. Enough to make the Pope cuss(he probably don’t wear jeans). I have some 32/31’s that are too tight and too loose. Now I even have to try them on, I hate that.
Some folk seem to enjoy trying on clothes, not me. To be honest my best shirts came from Yard sales. You seldom find good men's clothes at yard sales, we usually WEAR them OUT. Usually the only reason good men’s clothes are in yard sales is the man left town too fast, or he died.
I get confused looking at so many styles and colors. I keep saying I am too old for this.. LOL Roses here in Belmont was where I always bought my jeans. They sold the Wrangler’s 2nd’s for $10. I haven’t seen any lately. Of curse Sherry can afford to buy me $30 jeans, but I am cheap. Sherry buys certain things at Penny’s. While there awhile back I saw jeans for $79.00, why would anyone pay that for jeans to work in? Or to be a cowboy in?
I was wearing a pair of 32/31’s today that were too loose, and felt terrible. Imma guess that is why I’m fussing. LOL But I am fussing with a smile!
Do you have trouble shopping for clothes?
In ‘51 Jeans were Jeans, this guy bought ‘em big and hung them with suspenders.
Sherry wanted a pair of these until she found out that James didn’t come with ‘em.
