Do you replace your pants or wear them out?

Antipova Antipova
My coworker and I today were talking about being proud members of the 'wear your pants til they're not pants anymore' club. I wondered whose pants tend to wear out in the seams, whose wear out in the cloth, and who replaces their pants before they develop holes?

(The patches make the goodbye harder still, you know youtube link)

I guess, to be specific, when my 'look professional' work pants are starting to get thin, I put them in a different pile. I grab from that pile for my 'out in the dirt' work, and they wear out in that pile. I don't go to conferences with holes in my pants.

Mine usually wear out on the knees, I just make them into shorts at that point. If they happen to just start looking shabby I will put them in my "work around the house" pile.

It's nice that I can wear jeans to work, as long as they do not have holes.

I do the same thing. My suits are replaced long before they wear out, but I hold on to the pants until they just can't be worn any longer.

My pants usually wear out in the cloth, but I had one pair of jeans that wore out in the crotch seams- I couldn't keep wearing those.

I've had some jeans that I wore until the fabric in the butt and thigh area wore through.

Work pants - before they wear out or through. Pants and shorts that are just for around the house, not until they need patched.

The longer you wear them the better they feel in my opinion

I have so much clothes I dont have time to wear them out so I just buy more. I'm addicted.

I wear my clothes til they aren't 'decent' anymore. (They would already have been bumped down to 'everyday/around the house' clothes at that point though.)

I keep all my clothes but when they get holes or pretty damaged I will get rid of it. I am a shopper though so I tend to have more than one of many things so it takes a long time before anything becomes used enough to be thrown out.

I love my ripped and torn jeans It tells a story, and I am very attached to them at that point.

I'll replace my "pants" before they wear out, but I'll let my "jeans" wear out along the seams, before I replace them.

I have the same problem! The only time I ever throw out pants is when they get holes along the crotch. It sucks when the rest of the pants (usually jeans) look great except for the holey crotch!

I'm a huge cheapie for one and for two, I am built weird so I have a hard time finding jeans that fit right and aren't too baggy and don't sag in the rear and crotch. Thanks to that, there's only one brand I've ever found that works decently and they're still usually uncomfortable and the real bad part is they're expensive. Hollister are so far the only jeans that fit OK. They carry small sizes so that way I'm able to get the style of jeans I want in my actual adult size. Other places I have to get them in the kids section and it's always noticable on me. I wear them til there's holes! Lol.

One thing about Hollister is they're clothing is made poorly and they literally fall apart at the seams. I've never had any t-shirt get holes, but theirs will within the first week of buying it! I don't know why. They're jeans are OK, but still wear quickly. I was down to one pair a year ago and this hole developed in the crotch and kept getting bigger and these were seriously the only pair I had. Not just the only pair that fit OK. One day the hole turned into a rip that showed my entire behind and we were in public and it also showed my crotch! I don't wear panties usually so we had to walk in the mall with my partner using holding his jacket behind me and I hurried in the store and paid for them and changed in the car! Lol. I always keep at least one extra pair just incase that ever happens again, but I hate wearing jeans! They're so uncomfortable. I can wear jean shorts no problem. I have a hard time finding them in the right size, but it's much easier than finding pants that fit. I don't buy jeans unless I have to. Lol

My grotty work pants go till they die a horrible bloody death.

For more pro/urban circumstances I try and keep my look to a close approximation of sharp.

I hope you don't mean a literally bloody death, Voluptuous!

While I'm generally good about replacing old clothes, I'm not as good with underwear. The problem is, there's not much the shop I normally go to has by way of decent replacements.

Ditto on all - the rest of the trousers are fine, except for the damned crotch being full of holes.

I wear mostly jeans at work and I get rid of them at the first sign of a hole. Since all my jeans are basically the same, being "presentable" is my criteria.

If I could afford to replace them faster I would. I wear them until there is a whole in the crotch, then have to wear them to get a new pair.

My pants tend to wear out in the back pocket due to my wallet. I replace them when my wife tells me to because I'm never looking at my own ass.

LOL! You sound like My Man. The rivets tear and I can see his ass (or his SpongeBob underwear) or the entire pocket starts to come out. Thing is, he thinks he's a 34-36 he's really a 32-34. (Waist envy? He's lanky.) So, when I buy his pants for him, I buy 32 or 33 waist. Then, I don't have to say, "Man, say no to Crack!" because his pants are falling down.

Recently I gained some weight (thank you HRT) and now I have only two pairs of jeans that fit me and a weird pair of kakhis. (Sp?) More boobs, but more everything else.

Aw. That's what he says. (I mean not a lot more, but a good 20 lbs and a cup size.)

I don't buy a lot of clothes for myself and I'm all over the place so mine tend to wear out before I replace them.

I like to use things up completely before replacing them, pants included. They'll rip, get worn out, or something will make them not good for wearing before I replace them. As they get worn I do what someone upthread mentioned - shuffle them into my "working around the house" pants pile. I often wear mine out in the knees and butt.
