Today, yet again, I spent some considerable time admiring him. He is my current favorite; for about 1.5 years or so. I could say I am obsessed with him. He is always there for me, when everyone else have abandoned me. He never lets me down. When all hell breaks loose, he is there lending his support, with patience; confident that I will go to him ultimately. And then, he caresses me, making me so comfortable, my most perfect companion.
Prior to that, my favorite was a different hunk. I let go of him when I found my latest one. You know, this guy was dashing, the old one lost his charm. Obviously, I am no saint!!! So I ditched the old one and went along with this new dude. He was cool, fresh and interesting.

He is my ever perfect, ever fitting pair of denim trousers. :-P :-D
I have mentioned about it a couple of times earlier in my posts. Mostly in tags with question - what are you wearing. Whats special about this chap? To begin with, I have about 2 dozens of denim pants or Jeans as we call it. But each time, my heart and my soul goes to this one particular piece that I bought for a steal.
A pair of well fitted jeans is the most comfortable, ever ready, piece of clothing. You team it up with a sober shirt and you are ready to go to work, compliment it with a flashy top, you are all set to rock at the party!!
Somehow, it seems to be the most worn apparel anywhere in the world; now with work place accepting them without any hoopla. Why not? Its so convenient, fit for all climatic conditions, goes boom if accessorized well at work or at party. And what more? It comes in all shapes and sizes, to fit people of all shapes and sizes. Its a "in" thing even if its faded, worn out, unwashed for ages!! Aaah..its so versatile.
Ask anyone - "what are you comfortable in?" Most would say "My pair of jeans".
I have worn them since I was a child. Then it was just a pair of them, with elastics at the hip; ill fitting. It didn't matter then. But as I grew, I got to know what sort must be worn and what not. If not chosen a proper one, they can make you look funnier than a clown. What with the companies now designing them for all types and all kinds. So if you are broad at the hip and want to camouflage it, you have the fit for that. If you are tall and skinny, you have the carrot stick leg type, the list is endless. So one need not fret and fume that you cant get a fitting pair to suit your looks, its all there. So each one can find a pair for ourselves as if they were designed with us having in mind.
Yeah! coming back to my favorite pair currently. Its a stone cold wash skinny ultra low hip pair of jeans. Its soft, and sticks to the skin, giving a feeling as if it doesn't exist. Even though its skinny, its so comfortable, well fitted at the waist. Pair it up with a nice top, its as elegant as it gets. No skin, no vulgarity, just sheer elegance, pure comfort and audacity. That's why I just adore it.
I picked it up one day in a mall, at about 9:30 PM, when the store was about to be closed, and all lights already switched off. I just ran to the shelf which I knew had my size, groped one of them and pulled it out; hurriedly went to the fitting room, tried it on and it felt comfortable, and I bought it without much thought. This was very different of me; because I do spend considerable time in picking up a denim trouser as I am hell bent on fitting and perfection. But somehow, I didn't give much thought to this particular piece and I was confident about it. Well boy!! he never let me down, did he?
Its been about 1.5 years now, each passing day, I feel more comfortable with this pair. And more often, I find myself snugging in into this pair of favorites. So much so that, the other 2 dozen pairs that I have feel unwanted, considering each one's far more expensive than this. I wear them extensively, to office, to movies, to see off a friend, at home......
Oh yeah! at least one of you who have been reading the post attentively might ask "If you cant live without this pair, why did you ditch the older one?" I am entitled to answer. I was as obsessed with that as I am obsessed with this. But somehow as days go by, the perfect fit becomes the perfect misfit. You don't find it snazzy anymore, you start looking sloppy; that's the time to ditch your sweetheart and find a new one!!!
Oh yeah!! Happy and a Prosperous Diwali to you all :-)
