An ode to denim

March 16, 2010 § 2 Comments

Hi new pair of jeans. Thanks for finding me. I’ve been looking for you since, well, since I bought my last pair of new jeans. It’s been a while. I think it’s been 2 years, maybe more, I don’t even remember. It hasn’t been easy. I’ve searched high and low for you, going into every reputable shop that sells jeans, a wad of cash in my pocket to thrust into the hands of anyone who could present me the perfect pair. Yes, I know there are jeans galore in every corner of this city, but finding one for me is a difficult mission. It is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. Perhaps the colour isn’t quite right. The blue is too blue, the pockets look funny, or the cut emphasizes the part I want to de-emphasize. Eventually, my heart gives up hope of ever finding another pair, and I slip back into my faded grey ones, hoping that another day another time, I would have better luck. One day. Well, today was that day. The best part was, I hadn’t even been looking. Somehow something drew me into this shop, as I casually made my way towards Town Hall Station. I spent 5 minutes grabbing this pair, 10 minutes to decide my butt looked good in it, 2 minutes to shove money into the cash register. All done and dusted by the time peak hour was over. Awesome.

    The perfect jeans is almost impossible to find. I found one a few months ago… fit like it was made for me, despite the detailing at the back pocket was hideous.

    If the back pocket was hideous, then it is not the perfect pair of jeans! The perfect pair has everything just right. And for once, the pair I bought didn’t even need any shortening!
