Just being noisy here, how many pairs of jeans do others own. Also, what style. I've got two bootcut, black and sage green, two boyfriend midwash and sage green and three straight, dark wash, black/blue and mid blue, which makes seven!

Have to say I live in jeans all winter and I did buy four pairs in Next's sale in the summer.

a big fat 0 !

Maybe about 30 or so. Hmmm...

I don't like black jeans and favour dark denims or a lighter, faded blue. The best I have found, for flattering fit are Boden - plus they look nice on. I like GAP as well but their sizes are insane. Their size 10 is more like a 14 so it's good for the ego to shop in there grin

Skinnies- 3 indigo, 1 black, 1 grey,1 burgundy, 1 khaki plus a pair of indigo jeggings.
Bootcut 2 pairs dark blue
plus 1 pair straight leg jeans.
Then there's about 5 pairs old jeans for decorating/muddy events etc

smoothieooo Thu 04-Oct-12 17:29:05

About 6 or 7 pairs. Only 2 actually fit - I accidentally lost 18lbs and need to get rid of some 12-14's! I've been on eBay a lot today as can't afford to replace them all with new ones!

Need an entirely new work wardrobe too - eeek! grin

Hopefully Thu 04-Oct-12 17:31:12

1 pair khaki super skinnies
1 pair dark olive skinnies
1 pair red/orange skinnies
1 pair teal skinnies

So 4 pairs. No blue jeans at all!

How on earth is it possible to use 10+ pairs of jeans? Am shock at 20-30+. Why?

CointreauVersial Thu 04-Oct-12 17:36:40

I must have about 30 pairs of jeans, but a lot of them are too big (I lost weight a couple of years back), or are bootcut, which I don't wear any more (but am hanging onto in the event of them coming round again).

I used to have a really bad habit of buying jeans that were a size too big - they'd be comfy in the fitting room, then would be hanging off my arse after a day's wear.

I reckon I have around 7 pairs of skinnies in current use - indigo, washed blue, jade green, white, black x2, dark grey. Hankering after a burgundy pair....

CointreauVersial Thu 04-Oct-12 17:38:35

Hopefully - I have 30+ pairs of jeans because I'm 45 and never throw clothes out. I've got jeans that are probably older than you!

Halfling Thu 04-Oct-12 18:08:34

4 pairs that fit properly. 10 or so which don't.

EdBird Thu 04-Oct-12 18:41:16

About 17 and they all fit.
Various colours.
Tend to mark them inside in waistband with a 'P' (for posh) if I need to wear them with heels.

gindrinker Thu 04-Oct-12 18:42:50

Woozley Thu 04-Oct-12 19:16:44

Two. One pair dark skinny, one lighter coloured boyfriend fit.

doglover Thu 04-Oct-12 19:26:02

2 pairs. An old faded pair for dog-walking and a slightly-less faded pair for everything else. I'm currently losing weight so refuse to buy more until I've lost another stone!

dexter73 Thu 04-Oct-12 19:34:00

Two pairs of slim fit French Connection - one for going out in and the other for knocking about in.

ooer Thu 04-Oct-12 20:11:43

1 pair per una skinnyish [I don't care if you laugh, they look good! they do!]
1 pair cobalt blue from M and Co straight leg bordering on the skinny.
1 pair brown velvet Whistles from charity shop.
1 pair charity shop tapered Levi's I'm guessing vintage 1989 - had for 10 yrs, only worn for gardening now.

I don't find denim all that comfy or warm in the winter.

blue2711 Thu 04-Oct-12 20:18:29

I own lots! Never used to before skinnies, but now I am a SAHM and there are so many colours and patterns I seem to have amassed quite a collection.

10 TS skinnies: burgundy, grey, pale blue, mid blue, 2 black, white, peppermint, pale pink and red.
3 J Brand: indigo, grey floral, bright pink
CEs:khaki leopard
Whistles navy leopard
Primark florals
Nobody navy skinnies
Zara khaki skinnies

Oh... Quite a shameful amount. But I love them and wear them all, honest.

blue2711 Thu 04-Oct-12 20:19:39

Dexter, yours can't be as bad as me!

Plinkityplonk Thu 04-Oct-12 20:54:09

I live in my jeans, probably have about 10 pairs of skinnies, various colours, black, cobalt blue, dark blue, grey, forest green. I have one pair of dark blue boot cuts and about 10 other pairs which are all too big for me now but for some reason I can't bring myself to throw/ give away.

Meglet Thu 04-Oct-12 20:56:27

2 (one navy slim M&S, one grey skinny peacocks).

Approx another 6 pairs that don't fit properly, a couple too small the rest too big (post baby jeans, worn for gardening now).

Meglet Thu 04-Oct-12 20:57:22

And I only wear jeans when I'm not at work so have to alternate washing my 2 pairs.

Doshusallie Thu 04-Oct-12 21:29:51

Oh god at least 20.

A few boyfriend type blue jeans
At least 10 pairs of skinnies in various colours.
Smart blue and black ones
Sparkly ones
Dog walking ones

5. All from Oasis.
4 pairs cherry style (skinny straight)
2 indigo, 1 tan, 1 dark green

1 pair of indigo bootcut 'scarlet' style which are for messy jobs.

MySecretSelf Fri 05-Oct-12 21:39:46

A couple of years ago I had around 40 pairs, and in one year I bought 20 pairs! However, I did at the time work for a major high street retailer who sell a good range of jeans. Sadly, they were all various sizes smaller than I now am, so I had a good clear out and the local charity shop must have been able to run a good jeans promo with sizes ranging from 6 to 12. I'm now have 4 very similar pairs which vary in leg length to suit heel height.

blondassassin Fri 05-Oct-12 22:24:56

2 x J Brand 912 Indigo
J Brand 912 Terracotta
2 x 811 (Navy and Teal)
2 x Agnes (Black and Khaki)
3 x MiH Paris (White, Red, Navy)
3 x Topshop Baxter (White, Olive, Wine)
Current/Elliott Skinnies (Dark Green)
7 x Massimo Dutti (3 indigo, cream, navy, apricot, dark green)
2 x James Jeans straight leg
Primark floral skinnies
H&M orange skinnies
H&M gold skinnies hmm Possibly too old for these at 33...

So 26 pairs shock, but am SAHM and hardly ever wear skirts/dresses.
