How many pairs of jeans do you own?

@Duodequinquagesimus amazing you kept all this stuff -- you must have plenty of storage

I’m not convinced it’s intentional. Charity shops have the right to refuse in exceptional circumstances.

This is true. I had a major clear out about 4-5 years ago and our local Samaritans charity shop refused the VHS tapes I took in (amongst other items I may add) so I just dumped them in the bin outside.

Was it the titles on the stickers? Debbie does Dallas, Ben Dover, Dogs Arses?

Wow looking still quite new.

I love the never washed one with the cinch back on the top of the pic. Which denim brand?

indeed a lot haven’t been worn much lol, but that pile is pretty deep. 

@swiss-jeansfreak up at the top of the pic are a pair of Kapital century denim. They’ve actually been worn quite a bit, and need a repair

That’d have driven me insane.

That’d have driven me mad as a hatter:wacko:

‘Used to denim-hoard 12yrs ago or so ... but, every time I get to a point where I’m overwhelmed by the pileup ... & guilt [for overindulgence], I start purging ... thin the herd ... then, new stuff comes along & the cycle begins anew.

I still got a few unworn pairs on hand, but I’m able to keep the enthusiasm in check;)

I have a bit too much, most of it was purchased recently as I was getting into a tad looser cut and I ended up selling/giving my slimmer pairs away. I also was lurking on sufu for a while (especially during quarantine) which opened my denim horizons. Luckily I work in a lab setting so I can pretty much wear denim everyday. There are some pairs that I need to set loose ( TSG7104/Fullcount 1110), but I think this collection will do me forever :)

@BrownMetallic I'm at about a 34-35 waist (closer to 35 with the quarantine ;)). In case you're interested in the TSG/Fullcount, the TSG are sized 34 (but fit too tight for me) while the Fullcounts are at a 35 (still have arcs on them!).

Yeah, curious w/ the TSG ...  W34, as well ... & like U, edging to 35, due to the lockdown :laugh2:

@BrownMetallic ahh yes those have some great texture. For me what didn’t work was the rise as it’s a little low and I have a bigger butt. They were meant to replace my 3109 which are retired at this point, but instead are just sitting in my closet. If you’d like I can send you pictures and measurements? I obviously need to free up some space :laugh2:

ok serious question guys. What's the point of having so many jeans that you don't have the time to even wear? I would think rotating between more than 3-4 pairs at any given point in time is "too much" since you probably won't see fades start coming in until after months/years of wear. I'm always tempted to buy more jeans myself (I'm eyeing a pair of resolutes, warehouse, and also another pair of Evisus) but can't justify it knowing that if I have denim ADD I won't be able to properly wear my existing stock.

First off a lot of us are collectors of sorts. Secondly I still wear my first selvedge pair from 13 something years ago. I’ve got a lot of different cuts at different stages of wear to choose from when putting together a fit. Just why I have so many but then again I have a lot of all kinds of clothes, from caps to shoes...

@1fookntitefd To be honest, it's kinda been accumulating since college, so Its been about 6 years of collecting. I enjoy getting different fabrics/fits and seeing how they change over time but I also get to spend most of the day in jeans so I get to try out different pairs pretty easily. There were also some pairs that I could not really afford during college but still wanted to try out once I got older. Best example were my Flatheads, which I picked up recently as I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get them anymore after their production suspended. Most of the time I find pretty good deals on jeans I've been interested so I say "why not" :biggrin:

I'm definitely in the collector category as well. I know that it's unlikely that I'll ever wear every single pair of jeans that I own.
Lately I've focusing on one pair at a time and then switching pairs every six months or so. My collecting habits have slowed down a bit. I stick to buying OA, Roy, Warehouse and then the occasional unique pair that pops up. I've even been thinning my collection out a bit. I've gotten rid of nearly all of the relaxed tapered and skinny cuts that never really looked good to begin with.

Fades are a bonus but not my priority when buying jeans, for me it's fit and fabric so I don't mind rotating through several pairs. I have about 6 pairs that get regular wear. 

Having said that my collection is now where near the levels of some

@1fookntitefd the importance of fades is nothing more than an example of the woozle effect
