When I was in FL, I would have. It was too hot to wear them most of the time anyway. Now, I'd never consider it...this is perfect weather for jeans most of the time in the PNW.

I have jeans, but usually don't wear them. I find them too constraining, and if I get a bigger size or some that are baggier, they feel too heavy. I'm more comfortable in a pair of khakis or corduroys

I'd only get rid of my jeans if I couldn't wash them for 6 months.

No. Jeans are the only pants that look OK with holes in them.

I haven't worn jeans in years. Too heavy and uncomfortable.

It's either jeans/t-shirt...or a nice tailored suit for me. Or buck naked, of course.

Thinking about this.. I haven't owned a pair of jeans in well over 7 years. This wasn't on purpose, I just happen to own a lot of slacks.

I think I'm going to buy a couple pairs of jeans now. Thanks for the reminder!

If my boss would give up her senseless insistence that I wear pants, I'd give them up. I've been wearing Levi's 501's since the early 80's. Can't see that changing any time soon.

I've only been wearing jeans for the past 5 years or so. Prior to that I was exclusively wearing khaki's and linen for natural fiber garments.

What's right about pants? You can say it aloud without sounding like a 1979 Sears & Roebuck commercial!

Jean Shants are the devil and they have no space in my vocabulary. There is something decidedly unappealing about them.. One of the main reasons I dont like Rafael Nadal.
