Let me just clarify, holy jeans are not the latest hot name in the world of designer denim.
What if you sold jeans that were stone-washed in holy water, blessed by the pope and had crosses embroidered on the back pockets?
I’m thinking $150 a pair.
I can just see celebrities wearing them while pushing their babies around Montecito in $900 strollers…
That’s MY idea.
Don’t you steal it.
Anyway, what I’m actually talking about are plain old jeans that have holes ripped in the knee.
See, it’s January, and David has worn the knees out of all but two pairs of the jeans I bought him for school back in August. But the jeans still fit him.
You might think this a weird question, but I remember when I was in elementary school you didn’t wear ripped clothing to school, because it wasn’t considered proper.
And God help the kid who’s mother sent him to school with a patch sewn on his pants. That was guaranteed ridicule and social ostracism.
Now, I know it’s cool these days for a high school kid to wear $150 jeans that came from the store pre-riped. But what about a kindergartner?
Do I save the jeans for playtime and weekends, or I do I let him keep wearing them to school as long as they still fit?
