Thanks, jkath! DH always makes fun of me because I have so many pairs of jeans in the closet that I never wear. He doesn't understand how they can fit one way at the store and then a completely different way after wearing them once or twice.
Once, long, long ago, I had a wonderful pair of jeans that fit just teh way I wanted them to. I wore them 'till the knees were non-existent and thin everywhere else, too! I couldn't find a similar pair anywhere. I was so sad about giving them up that they sat in my closet for a couple years.
DH finally "packed" them up when we moved!
