Jeans

Post by Monkeybubbles » Sun Jan 19, 2020 10:27 pm

One of my sons just told me "jeans are what old people wear".

That's me bolloxed. Apart from work clobber, and the gimp suit, pretty much everything I own is made of denim.

Jeans and shoes, by the way, can tell you more about a man than any conversation.

Unless the daytime temperature exceeds 30°C, I think for the benefit of society, and perhaps public safety as a whole, grown men wearing shorts should be sectioned.

Yoga pants in the winter, sparkly hot pants in the summer. Always appropriate in any situation I've found.

Trousers or sportswear, it seems. Jeans are "basic", which I believe means they're for squares, daddio.

Jeans are perfectly acceptable. It's only when you go past a certain age do the young people, who are generally clueless, think they are for old people because they don't realise that when they are pulled up properly and worn with a belt, that they are actually the same garment that they wear half way down their arses.

Another thing that the younger generation also don't seem to realise, is that a sweat set, as in same colour sweat bottoms and top and white socks, may look good to them, but to be seen in public in them when you're older than 5 is just wrong.

Grown men that wear the above need to be beaten up, and told to write 1000 times (in crayon as that's all that's safe to them for use) 'Full set sweat suits in public make me look like a ****".

I'm sitting here in a pair of straight leg medium blue demin jeans from somewhere like Next. We're free dress at work and the lads who are slightly younger and slightly older than me are wearing similar styles.

I hadn't noticed what younger people wear as fashion. I do, however, find their music intolerable when the monopolise juke boxes in pubs.

BTAJIM - Next, obviously

Southbris - Also 501. String tied round the bottom to keep the farm rats out.
Eggy - Something like Boss. White belt on holiday.
Tenners - Sue Ryder
Clackers - Piss stains. Sequins.

Piss stains is spot on, I must get to the quacks and get the finger inserted for a check.

I think you've got me confused with Dan tbf.

I have 4 brands of jeans in my wardrobe - Levi, Next, Gap, Burtons. Not majorly expensive, but not Primark or George either.

I thought all the yoot wore skinny jeans or riped jeans?

Is it all chinos and boat shoes again?

Or just tracksuits with vests?

I think you come of age when you realise that fashion is temporary, style is permanent or in some case style becomes fashion.

For example, I notice a lot of young people are wearing Doc Martens most likely thinking they are the first generation to think they are cool. This is about the 3rd rotation of them being "in" since I was about 15 and everyone was wearing Cherry Reds. For some people out there they have never actually gone out of fashion, mainly because they don't care about fashion in the first place.

I tend to buy my denim when I am in the US. Better selection, better sizing, better pricing.

It's not class or ideology, colour, creed or roots.

From what I can tell the youngsters seem to be wearing track suits.

They look ****.

Yes, they are quite accommodating towards the larger man.
