Not Your Man’s Jeans

October 28, 2014

“So, when a woman of 50 comes in and buys a pair of Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, then…”

“Hang on, what did you say?”

“Not Your Daughter’s Jeans? You know?”


That exchange was between me and two John Lewis staff when I was trying to exchange a pair of 34″ waist Diesel jeans with stretch in them.

They’d become baggy after a day’s wear.

The taller of the two said: “We always tell women to try to squeeze a hand in the pockets. If they can barely do it….then that’s a fit!”

Five minutes later I’m in the changing rooms spraying on a pair with a 32” waist.

I look at my muffin top in the reflection.

Then I make the exchange. I hope these jeans shrink.
