It seems like every pair I have is doing this.

We all get it in the end!

Very becoming on you though!

the Contrary Goddess said...

thanks there mush! I'd rather the end be covered most of the time though, and I think ripped-for-show jeans the height of stupidity. I'm thinking of seeing is daughter can sew in some flannel there and give me sort of a kick pleat but in a different place.

Mine always go out in the knees and pockets. While I'm handy with needle and thread, I prefer to go with the iron on patches on the inside of the holes. "http://new.photos.yahoo.com/hstallard/album/576460762394316657"

These were already patched with iron ons. Both sides. I think men's jeans always wear in the knees and pockets. I do not know if all women wear their jeans out in the rear or if it is just me. I used to think it was from riding so much (when I was a kid) and now I blame it on milking.

I wear them out in the knees, and only occasionally in the butt. Funny you posted this, but last fall I busted through the knees of all 4 of my pairs of jeans...in a 3 week period! Two of them were from high school (and I am nearly 42) so I guess they had it coming. So I got 3 new pairs of men's jeans. Sigh. They're just not the same as the old well-worn ones...

it used to be the knees of mine that would go first, then the buts started to go. happens to us all eventually ;). i haven't had any luck with patching them or sewing anything over the patch. But maybe i am just not doing something right.

Try the stuff with spandex in it. They are a lot more comfortable to wear for chores. Haven't worn mine out yet but will try my best this year.

Very Hot ...is all I'm sayin'. I have kids in my high school class who wear stuff like that a lot of the time. Amazing what their parents let them out of the house in these days.

Fathairybastard said...

And mine always give out in the crotch. Need to get gusseted pants I guess.

the Contrary Goddess said...

oooh fhb, I like what you're sayin'.

But no way I'm goin' with spandex, nah, nope, I will never be that old, or that young, either one.

I always knew you were a cheeky one.

Alan said...

I'd make a snarky comment but I'm intimidated by your knife. {laughing}

When my jeans give it up they usually tear out at the knees or the crotch seam, most of the time as I'm getting into the truck.

.....Alan.

Deb said...

I think I've busted a pair or two that way. Unlike H Stallard I don't like the iron on patches; it seems the fabric just rips along the edge of the patch.

H. Stallard said...

Yeah, but then you patch that tear and then the next and the next and pretty soon you have a new pair of jeans made from patches.

Fathairybastard said...

Yep, the last time I was steppin' up into a truck and zip! crotch left wide open for God and everyone to see. Hilarious, but a pain in the ass as well. I should wear a larger size in the leg, I guess.

the Contrary Goddess said...

alternatively Deb & Harold, when you get a little hole, patch all the part that is thin and obviously *about* to rip. Daughter was patching my jeans and was being frugal (where does she get that from?) with the patching . . . and you see where that left me. Some things it doesn't pay to be frugal with. But then again, I'm going to search Salvation Army for some hip huggers so I'll be hot even without being cheeky!

How many times fo I have to tell you not to swing your hips near barb wire?

the Contrary Goddess said...

It is awful hard to get that part of my butt on those barbs! You are so funny Joe!

Jim said...

Cute butt you've got there CG!!!
