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.

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

Ancient pair of M&S 70s style flares in mid blue

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

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?

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.
