The material oozes confidence and comfort at the same time and what I believe would never go out of fashion and is something that individuals make their wardrobes around. Jeans are rugged, robust, exude strength, versatile, flexible, durable and are worth every penny. It never pinches me even if my budget goes overboard by a grand as long as the fit is right which could be different styles such as anti-fit, straight leg, Texas, skinny, ripped and faded. Something that I have a hard time identifying with is the fascination for ripped or faded pairs because am a firm believer with the passage of time, the look that you crave or the lack of it would eventually show through and there shouldn’t be any need for shortcuts. Then again, to each his own. My personal favourite is GAP and something that I have graduated from the likes of Wrangler and Lee. Recently went to Select City Walk in Saket, Delhi and was disappointed that they did not have a single pair of my size that was a straight leg with faded jeans being the norm nowadays.
