All fashion brands are about looking good. Being Human is also about doing good. And you can do good by the simple act of slipping into a t-shirt or a pair of jeans. —Salman Khan
As hard as it may be to believe, it wasn’t all that long ago that respectable people just didn’t wear their jeans away from their workplace. Growing up in rural areas of Kansas and Oklahoma, jeans were part of almost everyone’s wardrobe, but you didn’t dare wear them to school until they became popular in the mid-70s, and even then changing the dress code was a big deal. One didn’t wear jeans to church; that was just disrespectful. One could wear jeans to the diner for lunch because you were on a break from work, but not to the restaurant for dinner. Jeans were for home, for playtime, for work, but not for socializing.
Jeans are still most at home in places one needs the protection of heavy cotton twill. Even now, my jeans are the favorite part of my wardrobe. They know me, they have adapted to my strange body form, they bend where I need them to bend, and most importantly, the cats have difficulty getting their claws through the fabric. While there are still places I won’t wear denim, when I’m home and still need to wear pants, chances are I’m going to be in jeans. It just wouldn’t feel like home without them.
