    We opened gifts with my Aunt and Uncle on Saturday. My Aunt always gives me input as I start to open up the gift.
    "Now you can't wear these before Memorial Day and not after Labor Day". The older generation rule, I knew she had bought me something white, but not sure what.....

    A pair of white jeans. I wear tan jeans, but not white.
    They are awesome actually, great fit, perfect feel, such sucks that it is strictly white.

    I don't plan on wearing them immediately, but what are your thoughts on white jeans? When it does get warm, I'm in my shorts all the time so those old rules don't make much sense. Thoughts?

    Some men pull off white jeans very nicely, but I don't think I'm one of them. I'd probably give them away.

    One year, aeons ago, baggy white canvas painter's pants were in style. I think that was about the time the jazz band I was in decided that our concert "uniform" would be white pants and black tops. Somehow... we always ended up looking like milk men icon_confused.gif







    Old-fart digression:
    In the early 80's, I did quality-control at a food processing plant. The sanitation guys wore white jeans. They didn't start out white, but basically those guys washed down the whole plant in bleach at 0400 every morning. Some of the intermediate stages, when they had streaks and swirls of blue and white, were actually pretty cool-looking. I followed along behind them and tested everything to make sure that it was sterile, so my jeans just had little specks of white, like stars in the sky. This was years before anybody started selling "acid-washed" jeans. If we'd had more imagination, we could have made serious bank, taking those jeans to the city and selling them at artsy-fartsy street fairs or the like.

    Is the fabric cotton? You could dye them to the tan you prefer. If you have no experience with that check with someone who does. It helps if you have your own washing machine at home. You'll need to wash them a few times, without fabric softener, to prep them, with an extra detergent-free, clear water wash at the end. Don't dry them between washings, nor before dyeing.

    Well thanks for the input for sure. They aren't baggy, they fit me great, so I might just wait until March or April, but definitely awesome. I just wish she got the same jeans in a different color, but I might be damn glad in a few months!

    They are great, all you need to do is move to Western Europe (not the UK or Ireland) and you will fit right in.

    They could look great on you; but because they will show soiling so easily, they might prove to be an inhibition to getting on your knees - if that is something that you might do.

    In the early 70s, stark white jeans were absolutely the bomb. Especially if they were tight!

    In the right context, they can still rock.

    But yeah, they do get dirty easy.

    They would look good. Just be sure to wear them only on special occasions, not when you would normally wear normal pairs.

    Or just carry this with you when you wear them. icon_biggrin.gif

    I don't know why but white jeans usually look best on a vacation island such as Martha's Vineyard or Mykonos. I bought a pair a year ago but haven't worn them yet...icon_lol.gif
