This HusBen had not worn jeans since 4th grade or something. "Too stiff," he claimed. People would ask, "then what do you wear?" You'd be surprised how much you don't notice when you avoid this 'staple.' There are plenty of cords and multiple colors of khakis to wear instead. I hear that, back in the day, his substitute was sporty work out pants.
But that is all behind us now. Ben K wears jeans today. He found them himself. But may I not-so-humbly add that he bought them with the gift card that I gave him for Father's Day?
