High-Fashion Chainring-Print Denim
I've been wearing the same pair of jeans for...oh a while... because I'm unkempt like that, and I wore them on a 30 mile ride out to nearby town and back just the other day. I don't know how I do it, but I end up with black chainring grease prints down the lowers of both white pant legs, and I even have the right-side rolled up. I still had them on today at Thanksgiving with the extended family (even after the days-old sweaty ride), and one of my cousins in his mid-twenties was sitting in a chair across of me and asked,
"Did you buy your pants that way?"
I looked down at the funky zig zags from the teeth for a minute and said no.
But I wonder if I should market this idea. It couldn't hurt to make cycling a little more fashionable for the average person, no? I mean, we already have "pre-worn" jeans. Why not "pre-ridden"?
