I remembered that Gap put the date in the label. Found done early skinnies ( now look rather straight leg) from " Fall 06"
Coo. That's a while.

Some. Not done.

I have a pair of Gap Western Boot Cut on right now.

There is no date on the label (too prehistoric, clearly).

I must have bought them circa 2002. They are still going strong, though one of the belt hoops came off when I yanked them up last week.

Coo look closely at all labels. Bet it's there

Spring 06 on my Gap bootcuts. But I still wear Levi 501s from my student days, which must be <ahem> coming up for their Silver Jubilee.

I got some armanis on ebay, they are high waisted so pretty darn vintage - so old they have come back around

I have a Per Una shock straightleg pair from 2001 that I still wear. Sadly they are nearly through at the knee and I can't find a replacement pair that I really like.

Loads of weird numbers, no date with a season like yours. It does say HOL06 02/02. I know they are not from 2006, as I got them before we moved to this part of the world in 2005. Maybe Feb 2002?

I need to replace them. Dunno what Gap do now that is similar. Am such an old fogey.

DS1 just wandered by:

I have some Levis 501 from about 1992 (havnt been able to get into them for about 15 years but keep them for sentimental reasons). Those I can still wear are prob a pair of Monsoon bootlegs from about 3 years ago.

lol at AA
the writing was on a "sub label" somewhere

2003, have dyed them since then though, so they look brand new!

2006 River Island dark blue skinnies. have only faded slightly and have got better and better with age. I shall be sad when they finally give up the ghost, as RI don't do that line anymore. Boo.

I have some Levis 501s that are now cut off shorts -I bought them (as full length jeans) around 1989 in a second hand/vintage shop in Camden so I've no idea how old they were when I bought them.

I can't believe they still fit as I'm certainly bigger now than I was then

CroissantNeuf Wed 08-Jun-11 21:19:01

( well, when I say they still fit, what I mean is that I can still get them on just about but they are significantly tighter than that style were intended to be grin)

My first pair of skinnies from Massimo Dutti in 2006, still wear them a lot, surprised they have not got holes in them yet.

2006 was the year of skinnies it seems
