Do’s by Kathryn
I mentioned to you guys that the only jeans I will wear
are Levi’s? This comes from years of wearing them
and knowing my size. In other words, I needn’t try
them on. I already know what will fit. And plus, I covet
the Levi name.
my winter jacket is a Levi’s denim jacket lined with
fake sheepskin. Maybe it had to do with growing up in the
70’s. Seems to me everyone was wearing Levi’s.
There was a brief time when "Landlubber" jeans
were wildly popular. Do any of you guys remember them? Herman
tells me he’s never heard of them. In fact he asked
if it was a local thing proprietary to Cleveland. I actually
have no idea.
also wear Lee jeans, but they never fit as well as Levi’s.
Herman tells me he remembers liking Lee jeans better because
they had a real leather patch with their logo. I remember
that too, but nothing tops the red tag of Levi’s sewn
on the back pocket.
I just wrote that, Herman was insistent the tag wasn’t
red. In fact, he went in to get a pair of Levi’s after
checking the ones I was wearing. The tag he was thinking
of is the one with the size on it, which is not red. It’s
more like a brown with reddish writing. I was talking about
the cloth tag sewn in the pocket, which is red.
wears whatever fits. In fact, he is not in love with Levi’s
like I am. They fit him well in my opinion but not in his.
He is happy with Old Navy, Eddie Bauer, and a dollar store
brand, of all things. My feeling is, it’s not jeans
if its not Levi’s. Herman tells me he doesn’t
like the way they fit and feel. Oh, well. This is sacrilegious
to my way of thinking.
feel the same way about any other brand of clothing. Eddie
Bauer comes closest. But even I don’t have those jeans.
That would involve me trying them on, which is a major pain
for a fact that I wear a size 6 in all of Eddie Bauer’s
pants. They even know this. They have it on computer. I
remember I tried to order a different size pair of khaki
pants once and they asked if I didn’t mean to order
6 as that was what was "on file" in their computer.
I had tried to order size 8 when they quickly corrected
are good and bad aspects to them knowing my size, of course.
The good point is they know to correct any mistakes I may
make. The bad part is if I start to gain weight, they will
know that too. By the way, my diet has been going well,
but slowly. It’s difficult to lose weight when you
can’t exercise. But I’m doing my best to keep
fitting in my old Levi’s jeans. Just this morning,
Herman commented it was easier to fit me in an old pair.
That’s what I want to hear!
