Im still using my jeans since College days and that was 10 years ago. Th fit is good, its comfortable, and you know, sentimental value. The next best reason is economy. How old is your jeans?

HEY, I am surprised you manage to fit into the same jeans for so long, are you males, or are these easy fit jeans or are you amazingly in shape all along? I loved many pairs of jeans but had to give them away cos I no longer fitted into them. And its not that I put on weight, just got broad on my hips by 2 inches, and that was it..And now, I just had a baby 3 months ago so I am trying hard to get back into my jeans of a year ago!!

I don't keep clothes that are too old. I'm also not really too much of a jean girl either. The oldest pair of jeans rhat I have is nearly a year. I can't even wear them. They are a medium in juniors, and since I've become pregnant, I can't even really get one leg in them. lol. I really want to wait and see how my body will be after I have my baby, becasue I don't want to buy brand new clothes that I cannot wear because they are too big or too small. Either way though, I've never really cared for jeans too much. Except for those high waisted ones. I like them so much.

I don't know how old my jeans are because I bought them already used! One pair I've had for around 8 years, though.

Dunno, I get them all second hand...don't usually look at the tags, and some of them don't even have tags (some of them seem to be handmade). We lost everything we had in two housefires, so everything we have...we've only had for about a little over a year. All my jeans fit me wonderfully, they're practical, comfortable, and I patch 'em whenever they tear 'cause I hate to waste.

I only have a few pair and they are probably 5 years old or more. I do't wear them that often so I haven't really bough any new pair recently.

I bought new jeans about three years ago, so I've got a handful of pairs that are relatively new. I have a few pairs that are 7 years old, but the ones from 10 years ago don't fit me any more. Personally, old jeans are more comfortable because they're nice and soft and have stretched and formed to your body.

Well, now all of my pants are all less then two years old. I had a good run before but they all hit the point where they were splitting open on me and getting to worn down to wear. I wear my jeans until they are no longer wearable then I try to make something else out of them.

Unfortunately I keep gaining weight! GRRRRR!!!! I still have all of my older jeans, quite a few that if I was to lose about 15 pounds I would be back into in a snap! I need to work on that! I was pregnant and had a miscarraige back in February and I still have not lost the weight. I need to really work on it more. I even have jeans back from when I was in my late teens and early 20's. I just pack them up and keep them. They are all in good shape, I need to use them in something. Does anyone else use their worn out jeans for anything such as blankets?
