When I was doing laundry a couple of days ago, I was folding up jeans and for whatever reason caught a glimpse of the tag for a pair of jeans I had inherited from Mr. Brooks, who picked them up at Last Chance way back.
So even though I didn’t really want to find out, I headed to the Citizens for Humanity website, where I found this little nugget of occasionally misspelled information.
Dammit. So alluring! (Although this does explain why every time I put them on, I was like, “Where is my junk supposed to go?”)
I had no idea they sold women’s jeans by waist size — I thought they were always the standard 2/4/6/8/etc. — and I’m surprised Citizens even makes a 32-inch waist for women (it looks like it’s the largest one they sell).
This is not the first time this has happened: Years ago I inherited a pair of 7 for All Mankind jeans from Mr. Brooks — yes, that’s me wearing them in the Tribune, here — and found out they were Lady Pants, too.
I had to sell the Sevens to Buffalo Exchange after that, but I think I’m keeping Ingrid around. For now.
