New jeans...

Good morning everyone,

It's still looking like we can expect to enjoy a few more days of warm and mostly sunny weather-right through the weekend in fact. However, come Monday, they are calling for rain which shouldn't surprise anyone. Doesn't it rain during every Flower Festival!?

I need to buy a new pair of jeans. I was riding home on the bus the other day and noticed that the front part of the legs was getting a bit thin and then, to my surprise, also found a hole in the bum. I knew I should have bought a new pair when I was home last time!

I can't complain really. Although these jeans didn't last nearly as long as my jeans normally do-these ones only lasted about five years while I can usually keep a pair for closer to ten-they were thin when I bought them-that was the style then, and, to be honest, it is time to get a new, more 'in' pair anyway.

To be brutally honest, what I should be doing is buying about 3 or 4 pairs of pants. On my days off, I have no choice for pants. I wear those jeans or...well, in the winter that's all. In the summer, I've got 3 or 4 pairs of shorts to choose from. Not that it matters, because I always wear my favorite ones anyway! Ha ha! But, in theory I can choose, if I want to...

When it's too cold for shorts, I wear jeans.

But the last thing I want to do is fork over 10,000 or 20,000 yen for a pair of pants-let alone 3 or 4 pairs. Now that it's starting to warm up, do you think I'll be able to find cheap pants anywhere? Actually, it's probably too late, isn't it? Even the other day when I was looking for a long-sleeved shirt, it was pretty hard to find one.

Well, I'll pick up one pair of jeans for now, but let's be honest, I won't really be needing any other pants for about six months or long as my shorts hold out for another year...ha ha!

How about you? Do you have a favorite go-to piece of clothing that is wearing out or looking a little worse for wear? Can you just let it go? Or do you hang on to it for ages?

Have a great day!
