My First Pair Of Jeans

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…

    You didn’t have Rodeo? As for waistline, I am an inch or two smaller. Haha.

    Oh forgotten about Rodeo, thanks. Yes I don’t have a Rodeo and I don’t know why, maybe don’t fit me well hehe. You’re an inch or two smaller – you mean in the past or now???

    Probably both in the past and now. Haha.

    However, it is hard to prove things that happened so long ago in the past – can only compare the present states.

    Now that you mention it, I recall the thick belts with big fat metal buckle that went with the jeans.

    i, too, used to buy my levi pants from the shop owned by an indian man on the ground level of peninsula shopping centre. they were not jeans and, i think, they were made from some synthetic material. it was a bit flared at the bottom. then i was size 27; today, i am 32 going on to 33, if i cannot help it.
    i paid about $22 for my levis in the 70s. today, my younger daughter also wears levis and her jeans cost close to $150.

    Hello outstanding website! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount of work?
    I have virtually no expertise in programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyways, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic but I simply had to ask.
