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 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.

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

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).

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.

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

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.

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.

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

I'm not going to say in case I am judged hmm!

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!

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

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.

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

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

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!

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....

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?
