The Blowout

Yesterday, I was at work.

Yesterday, I was at work in my navy chinos.

Yesterday, I was at work in my navy chinos and I got ready to go on my lunch break.

Yesterday, I was at work in my navy chinos and I got ready to go on my lunch break and my chinos, which were wearing in a weak location finally gave out, leaving a huge hole that exposed my boxers.

Lucky me, I was already in the car when it happened so I adjusted my lunch plans and went home to change. But there is a lesson in this: Just because they’re your favorite pants and they’re clean, they need to be rotated out. We’ve all, men and women, blown out a pair of pants or jeans but, for those that you really like, spend the extra $8 at the tailor and get them reinforced. I do it with all my suits but now I’m realizing I need to do it with my regular trousers too.

 

Make avoiding a blown out crotch a priority.
