For the past 2 years I have been desperate to replace my denim jeans. The problem has been that I HATE stretch denim, I wanted 100% cotton which seems to be out of fashion. To complicate things further I don’t like fake creases, fake fading, fake rips or any bells and whistles. I also like dark blue denim which the old pair were once upon a lifetime ago. Eventually I posted on the Facebook walls of all the major South African retailers asking for help in this quest. Woolworths got back to me and said that they sell 100% cotton women’s jeans, they are called ‘Boyfriend’ jeans but these still didn’t quite cut it as I could not get good old plain dark blue. The word ‘boyfriend’ however got my mind going on a new track. What if I could buy Men’s jeans, I dashed off to my husband’s cupboard to try on a pair after all we are both size 34. That didn’t work, his jeans swam on me. I then set off to the mall to try on other men’s jeans. Woo hoo success!! Men’s sizing must be very different, in men’s jeans I drop from a 34 to a 30 (boy I feel so skinny). I eventually bought the ‘Stone Harbour’ denims from Edgars. Unless fashions change I will only be wearing Men’s jeans in the future, I wonder if I can now wear the pants in the home?

Edgar’s have a special on if you buy 2 pairs of jeans, so I also bought a pair of ‘Boot leg’ style, (photos above)
