Today I’m giving away Gap jeans. I wear jeans a lot, at least two or three times a week. I usually have a couple of pairs in rotation because I wear them so often. I am aware that this may reflect a lack of imagination on my part but I came of age in the seventies when they were a uniform. I love them, I’m comfortable in them and I still think a pair of excellent jeans looks better than an okay version of anything else. These were a favourite pair that I just wore out. They’re quite thin in the bum and knees and lose their shape by noon. I know some people are going to think I’m crazy for getting rid of old jeans, since they’re good for any dirty work that needs doing, but they aren’t the only pair of old jeans I have so I’m getting rid of them.
I can’t buy Gap jeans anymore, they changed their fit (or I’ve changed mine?) because I always walk out of that store empty handed. I, along with many I know, continue the search for perfect jeans.
