I’m thankful for jeans. I’m thankful for denim. You know that rugged cotton twill textile, in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads.
It’s amazing something so great could originate in France and be perfected for the American cowboy. It’s almost as if the proper combination of French and American can achieve perfection (think French Fries).

Recently the trend in jeans has moved to the skinny jean. I hate it when fashion changes, because it means spending money to try to fit in. Then I find myself liking the new fashion and replacing perfectly good clothing out of cultural manipulation! So, I thought I would put together this little assessment as a Thanksgiving gift, to help everyone figure out if their jeans are within the range of acceptability.
