Motivation Week: Awesome Old Jeans

Everyone has a favorite pair of jeans...

Remember back when GAP jeans used to be good? Late 90's, early 2000s? Back when Steven Tyler and Joe Perry were spokes models? Well I kept a pair.

These jeans have held up better than any other pair of jeans I've ever purchased from the GAP. The jeans I buy from the GAP now have a lifespan of about 3 to 6 months, then they start wearing through in places you don't want jeans to wear through. These jeans have to be a decade old. I wore them in college!

What's the trick? I think the denim is a a better denim. It's more sturdy. It feels rugged, wears better. These jeans have stretch that help keep it's shape, not expand to unnatural proportions through out the day. When I see these jeans it just makes me really sad for GAP.

The are a size 8 so yes - they probably belong on the "Long Shot" list too but I can not bare to donate away denim perfection.
