Okay - favourite pair of Quiksilver flares I own, about 4 years old, make my bum look great and one of the few pairs that are long enough to work with my mega big boots. No longer made by the company - so these are an endangered species, people!

Just sat here and noticed that the fabric on my left knee is wearing thin - we're talking three washes away from a great hole. I need to know how to save them or at least prolong them? I know there are people here who can help me and I really don't want to have to bin them. sad.gif

It may seem a bit melodramatic - but surely EVERY woman mourns her good bum jeans and understands the horror of trying to replace them?

Don't they? unsure.gif

Check out you local seemstress and see if they can put a patch on the reverse of the fabric. It should take some of the strain off the fabric.

Aren't jeans jeans??
Or are men, or just me, totally clueless on the subject?

I can see where you're coming from - but no.

Every now and again you find that special pair that just makes your legs look a million miles long, your arse look like it should have scaffolding keeping it that way and complements a fat day. These are those jeans. *tear*

In the last two years I'm in the habit of buying two of everything I find that fits me just so - only not on a £60 pair of jeans, hence my panic now.

My older sister had a pair of "leg" jeans. (there are also "butt" jeans, "lazy" jeans, and "skinny" jeans) The jeans started to get thin around her knees, and my mom sewed on a patch of denim on the reverse side.

The jeans lasted a bit longer, and when they finnaly gave out for good, all that happend was that the other denim patch shows through. Do to the whole hand-me-down thing, the jeans are now mine, and they just look like they were designed to have that patch of denim showing through.

So, I would try oobunnie's suggestion. Unless you'd rather just not struggle with getting a needle through denim, I would take it to a seamstress.
