Do you still remember when you bought your first pair of jeans? What size was your first pair of jeans? What color and what brand? Haha, not many can remember right?
I remember my first pair of jeans is white color and to match with my white shirt. No I’m not wearing that to join any political party hehe. I bought my first white Texwood jean when I was 16 and used it as my school pants. So I had to remove that obvious big label (like one shown above) and avoid walking near the school disciplinary master (bulldog and Mr.Mok of Victoria School then).
Wearing something that was disallowed is challenging and fun when went undetected! Guess what, my size then was something like 27 or 28 and now…….35 or 36…..sigh…..only 30 years ago. Slowly other popular brands were added to my wardrobe, brands like Hara, Lee, Amcol, Levis, and later came Wrangler.
I used to buy my jeans at the Peninsula Plaza or Shopping Centre and the Columbo Court as after buying, I could have it alter at those tailoring shops at the Capitol cinema multi-storey carpark. Those were my favourite hunt for jeans then and prices were not expensive like now. I also have a couple of thick ‘cowboy’ belt to match with the jeans too haha. Those were the days…
