Over the years, I have owned countless pairs of jeans and quite possibly more than the average number of bags a woman owns in the same time. OK, I may have just stretched the truth a little. They are easily the most versatile clothing for all sorts of work especially my kind and I subject them to abuse of sorts. When you spend so much time in one, you develop an emotional attachment to your everyday wear and my favourite pair is the “Rock” series by Esprit even as I tried to figure out the zipper annoyance at one time. Sadly, all good things eventually come to an end and this favourite has earned its place as vintage—seasoned and fragile like old cars—to be driven or rather worn on special occasions.
