Goddamn Awful Fashion... Grrr!

It's almost impossible these days to get non skinny boot-cut jeans. I went into 5 different shops today and I saw rack after rack of different colors, zip-fly and button fly, faded and regular... but all of them skinny, drainpipe style jeans.

They are awful things to wear, especially for a guy my age. I don't want to spend 10 minutes getting them up my legs a half an inch a minute, and then walking like a robot. Who cares what the fashion is. All I want is jeans with a wider and more comfortable leg and boot-cut.

      I love Levi's, but have to travel miles to a half decent store to get them. It seems all local town stores have been brainwashed by some quite remarkable sales rep, that skinny jeans are where it's at.

      I think the aliens are coming, and we're being conditioned and prepared to be sucked up the tubes onto the spaceships more easily.

        Curse you Princess. Since I first read your post I haven't been able to get boobies out of mind. These thoughts have managed to completely block out all the other important things I think of a daily basis, like jugs, hooters, norks, funbags, boozzies, t!ts, mammalian protuberances, and.. well, that's about it.

        I repeat, curse you Princess.

        If the price is right, why not. I'm open to offers.

    Duluth trading company clothing is not cheap - but it's the most comfortable stuff I've found anywhere and you can order online.


    Here's a clue for Levis - you can order from a levi store on Amazon - which means you are assured of quick refunds should they not fit right.


    I'm an expert at buying stuff without ever having to set foot in a store - I hate shopping.

      I've seen their commercials but it never occurred
      to me to check them for women's clothes. I need
      comfort so I'm going to order some stuff from there
      next time I shop for clothes.

    Walmart online has a wide variety of jeans.
    For women, you can select from different
    styles and they carry Jordache, Lee, Levis,
    Wrangler as well as their own label. I've
    been buying the Sofia Vergara brand lately
    as I like different colors, not just blue jeans
    and it's great when they are on clearance
    for under $10. Check out the men's dept
    they have several options for jeans as well.
    Once you figure out what size is best for
    you, online ordering is the way to go.

    They are really good clothes...I love their flannel shirts and sweatshirts. Not cheap but they last - and look good - for years. Also like the long tails on the shirts....that's my commercial for the day



    Haven't tried their jeans - my little secret is I buy jeans at resale/thrift shops...they are already softened up and broken in. My jeans are for riding so comfort is the priority.

      That's my next port of call tomorrow. I've had a few good buys there over the years. I don't really shop online for clothes. I much prefer to try them on in store before buying.

      Far, far too much information!

        So does most everybody, and that is why I
        prefer to get my clothes through mail order.
        They arrive brand new, usually wrapped in
        plastic, and other people haven't had them
        on. Same with shoes, purses, hats, etc.
        I am an OCD germophobe so I can't deal
        with second-hand things unless it's
        furniture or something.

    you just need to look for regular or relaxed fit jeans
    In order to choose the size when buying on the Internet, use the measuring tape and the size table of the store. If you live in Temple https://cashloansnearby.com/texas/temple/ will help you if you need a loan

    is not - didn't say what I was riding....so the problem may be your imagination, ya think?


    Point was - not buying jeans for social occasions or appearance but for usefulness.
