Shopping For Jeans

February 20, 2010

I had gone shopping today. For Jeans.

Why is it so damn difficult to find the right pair? It is just unfathomable.



There must be a million pairs in Mumbai, out of which at least half a million would be my size. But still to find the right one, the oh-so-absolutely best fit, is like finding a needle in the haystack.


So I started with Spykar, based on last times experience. They obviously didn’t have anything. How can they? Rather, why should they? One time luck is enough right? Sadists :P.

And then the treasure hunt began. Went through all the brands on the list. I didn’t have any specific type in mind. Well frankly there were a few criteria, like the shade, the fit, the cut, and obviously they have to have to look good. But everyone has these priorities, right? Well if they don’t they should ;).


I tried like a thousand pairs, took a few energy boosters.

And finally, last stop Levis. Why so? From last time’s experience.


I found them. The best pair I have ever owned :D. OK I say that for all, but these are absolutely brand new. I am ecstatic. My joy knows no bounds. Now I am sounding fake. Whatever :P…

They are black (I have never owned black jeans). A cross between jeans and trousers, so can be worn as casual or formal. And they are so snug and comfy, I can probably do karate wearing them :D.


Who says hard work doesn’t pay off ;)?

    this is how I shop for jeans…
    1. enter store,
    2 check out discounts,
    3. pick one blue, one black, one gray and something else on the top of the stack
    4. try
    5. pay
    6. get the hell out of there!
