Everyone has that one pair of jeans that they’d keep forever if they could—these are mine. A summer fling snapped the belt loop one night; I popped the zipper on the practice “bull” the night I learned to ride it. The pockets are deep and the fit’s just right. They’re soft and rugged, tough and supple all at the same time. I have a million memories in these jeans from countless days and nights living in them and I’ll be sad the day I finally destroy them.
