My family has an unfortunate genetic trait, thunder thighs! I guess most families have something – big heads, flabby arms, balding problems, buck teeth, acne etc.
Ours happens to be large thighs, we are all ‘blessed’ with them. It’s not much of a problem apart from when it comes to buying trousers/jeans/shorts etc – especially if I don’t want to buy those super over-sized obese man jeans..which is not cool! I usually have to have a size or two bigger than my actual waist size just to get them to fit my thighs.
The irritating part about this is all my jeans wear out in the same way…not at the normal places like the butt, or the knee or the pockets – but under my balls! Which whilst providing a nice breeze…does cause some embarrassing moments.
Anyway I noticed the pair of jeans I was wearing was exhibiting signs of wear when it starting getting drafty down there..it was my favourite pair of Renoma! I have two favs, the other is Calvin Klein which I got in the Curve on massive discount (if not there’s no way I’d be able to afford those).
They are in quite an advanced state of wear..
I have another pair of B.U.M jeans which I don’t wear so much, they are in a medium state of wear..
And another old pair from Next in the UK (much thicker) which have only minor wear but are extremely faded.
Of course the most extreme manifestation is when this occurs.
Total Jean Breakdown!
I went looking for a new pair of Renoma jeans in the sales today at Metrojaya, and you can guess the irony? They changed the cut so the same size I’m wearing won’t even pass my thighs!
Next to Renoma was Jeep though, I have a pair of Jeep jeans and they are ok but a bit boring – I preferred the designs of Renoma. On checking things out however I found Jeep had updated their designs and had some really nice stuff..
I tried on a few pairs and they fit perfectly, not tight on the thighs and no obese man waist size required! I picked up two pairs for RM159 each with 10% discount.
Let’s hope they withstand the Thunder Thighs well! They seem pretty tough.
Don’t worry, more monkeys and Sabah soon – just don’t want to bore you all with too many posts in a row about it.
