I used to have an abundance of jeans. During the last year and especially in preparation for my move, I ended up discovering that a lot of the jeans I had didn't fit any more...LOL. So, I gave those jeans away and donated them. Now my jean stock is low and I'm looking to rebuild. To start with, the type of jeans I'm looking for are skinny or straight leg jeans. It's the winter time, so I'm doing a lot of boot wearing. Skinny jeans are the best for this. Apparently boot cut jeans "went out of style" while I was in style hibernation. I think boot cut jeans work the best for wearing flats and and even heels, so in trying to rebuild my jean stock, I'm staying away from boot cut, but I have my eye out for a good pair if I can find them.
Most recently my favorite pair of go to jeans has been Levi's. I would always buy Levi's because they are a good quality jean and they seemingly fit me best. The last few pairs of Levi's have not been doing that well. Outside of Levi's, my next old favorite were Old Navy jeans. I try to go back to Old Navy but it seems that the older I get, the worse they fit! My problems with jeans are many. Here are a few
- The crotch is too long
- Mid-waist jeans are cut too high
- Low cut jeans are cut to low
- The jean fabric is too harsh
- Too tight in the waist area
- Too loose in the leg area
- Too short/too long
- Too baggy (or they get baggy as the day goes on)
- Etc., etc.
I'm just looking for a good pair of go to jeans. I don't care how much they cost, but I do want them to fit well and to continue to fit well as time goes on. When I run into these dilemmas I can't do anything but shake my head because I've never had this much trouble finding clothes before. Why now? And I know I'm not the only person going through this, but it feels like it!
So...if any of you ladies out there have suggestions about where to go to find good jeans or know good quality jean brands, let me know! PLEASE!
Happy Hump Day Folks!
