Another Thing That Burns Me Up!

Blue Jeans. When I was a kid they lasted forever. Or at least until I grew out of them. And believe me a growing boy is rough on pants. Nowadays you buy them and they’re pretty much crapola. Here are the last two pairs that I bought.

Ok, I got them kind of dirty. But this is what happens after only two washings. I’m convinced that the manufacturers must spray acid on the knees to make them fall apart the way they do. This next pair was only washed once:

No lie. One time through the washer and the knee fell out. By the way, the two jeans are different brands. I will never buy another pair. Do you agree?

    Isn’t it strange that different manufactors make jeans that fails on the same spot, the right knee?
    Could it be that you every day are forced to pray frau Grace for forgivness, standing on the right knee?
    I humbly asks…

    Give DuluthTrading.com a try, I think their jeans are the best available. They have some made from what they call ‘firehose material’ which has superior abrasion resistance. I love their ‘Ballroom’ jeans. Heavy denim but soft and comfortable. They also line the inside belt area and the inside of the leg cuff area with that firehose stuff. And the pockets are made of it too.

    My only problem with them is I have gotten too fat and I no longer fit in their largest sizes. 🙁

    I saw two elks today on my cat&dog-walk this morning. Swedish elks are big animals! Glad to have that stream between us…

      European Elks are our moose. Our Elks are the second biggest deer after Moose. You find Elks in the big national parks out west. I happen to be a member of the BPOE, the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks (Sometimes called the Biggest Pigs on Earth). I mostly go there to drink. It’s about three miles from my house.
