Annie, when I was in high school in the early 70s, jeans were the sign of independence — so all the cool kids wore them. So I didn’t, because I didn’t want to be unique like everyone else (and was made fun of for actually being unique, of course). My first wife bought jeans for me; they were okay, but I didn’t like the fit (too tight). I wear loose pants and cargo pants, and dress trousers at work. And if the cool kids make fun of me, oh well!
