Denim is one thing I have enjoyed buying all my life, whether skirts or jeans or jackets. It looks good and lasts for ages.

I just bought a denim skirt and I'm impressed by the range. Also, it's comfortable!

No nicer sight than a good pair of lady legs in tight worn denim jeans. Denim skirts however are a total turn off to me. Why? Don´t ask, I just dunno..... :confused:

I hear Debbie Harry's fond of it as well
"Denim Denim I'm so in love with youooooooo"

Years ago there was an advert used to appear in the Motor cycling press featuring a rather fetching young lady in a denim waistcoat, Brum brum! as the boy lard would say :ok:

Denim skirts,shirts jackets, and jeans.

Oh yes please.

Is there an age where fellas should stop wearing jeans?

I love the ability to do anything in jeans ( come on Carnsie we know your there!!)

I have bought a few £4 jeans from Tesco just so I can get them mucky and not bother. Used to love my ice blue denim jeans when I wuz yung pup

Oh yeessss!

Many years ago there was (probably still is, I just don't look any more) an aftershave called Denim. The TV advert of the time included a bit where this beautifully manicured and nail polished female hand slid inside this bloke's denim shirt and pulled the pop studs apart. It so impressed this youth (as was!) that, as I already had the shirt, I rushed out and bought the aftershave.
I've had a lot of dreamls come true but I'm still waiting for that one!:D

Edited 'cos the excitement was too much and my fingers were all a tremble!

T.I.M., 501s in the Club House are OK. Tesco jeans?! :yuk: :yuk: :yuk: I've never considered wearing denim skirts and they're probably a lot nicer and cooler in summer. If I was to wear a denim skirt and go around with a "Hail Caeser" here and a "Hail Caeser" there, would anyone notice?! := Would BHR have to put on anything underneath? :\

I miss the quick zip jeans… the ones with the zipper that went all the way around. Jeans with no back pockets on the right rear end…

Can't stand the stuff. Stopped wearing it after working in 43 deg C heat at 96% humidity for a while - horrendous Dhobi Itch!

As an aside, I saw a Belgian bloke poling a C207 in the Congo wearing tight denims at all times. That would explain the high pitched radio calls as he must have been sitting on 'em. Why do people punish themselves for the sake of fashion?:yuk:

Yes - probably c.45 or when you r waist starts to disappear. I have moved to the chinos now. As mentioned, jeans are awful in hot climates, and equally useless in cold climates too.

Friend spent his working life in finance; strictly suits and ties. Natty dresser and good with the money.
When he semi-retired, he grew a small beard and a pot belly. No more suits, but an ensemble of denim.
He considered this attire equally suitable for meeting lawyers and clergy as for endlessly grease monkeying with his bikes. He attended his own kid's weddings and ours clad thus. Went to church in them when his always impeccably dressed wife gently dragged him to attend the christenings of his grandsons.

We said goodbye to him last night. The many young ladies whom he played squash with were done up to the nines in suitable black. His biker mates had dusted off some very ancient suits, and his former colleagues from the business world all looked very proper.

The undertakers had done a good job, there was the familiar hint of a smile on his face. And his wife and son had made sure that Ome Jan was laid out in his favourite denim pants, denim shirt, Harley Davidson suspenders and his tan leather vest.

:sad:


T.I.M. you're never too old to wear jeans mate.

Love the stuff ... and the stretch denim has to be the most comfortable thing ever invented. Not fond of this current "white stripe" thing with the elongated faded sections running up and down fore and aft. From the rear it looks like the wearer sat in a puddle of milk.

Hi Flaps,

I agree, so its off to Tesco for another dozen pairs at £4 a go.

Do they really have to branded to be fashionable, I dont think so.


ps. Sorry about your friend. Was it his idea to be dressed like that? I really do want a fancy dress funeral.

I've not owned a pair of jeans for the last twenty years. It's not because I've got anything against them, it is just that I can't get a pair to fit. They are either so tight my wedding tackle is forced up into my abdomen or so baggy that the waist band is just below my armpits.

I don't know of anyone else who has this problem so perhaps I've just got an odd shaped arse :confused:

Flaps - likewise, sorry to hear about your friend.

Reminded me of a friend's funeral - paralysed in a bike accident many years before, very keen on bikes, memeber of the disabled bikers club (forget the actual name) etc

Lots of people in black at the funeral, except a biker mate who went in denim and full biker colours. He attracted some funny looks, but in truth was the only one there who was dressed appropriately

(mind you, he got married in jeans, albeit new ones!)
