With the arrival of some family members from Scotland only a couple of weeks away I decided I needed a new pair of jeans.....the ones I was wearing were bought from a Glasgow supermarket for around a tenner many years ago.
I've never been a great clothes buyer and will happily wear what I have until it falls to pieces....I've been the same weight for the last twenty years so haven't had problems with clothes no longer fitting me. The missus however put her foot down and said my jeans were a tad loose especially at the bum and the material too thick for the hot weather. To be honest I had to agree with her.
First stop was Cardon. Well the shop was empty and the two female shop assistants looked bored to tears. When I asked the price of their jeans I realised why they didn't have any customers....4,200 pesos was the average cost per pair. Soon as I heard that I told the wife no way....the styles they had were not to my taste anyway.
Next stop was a shop that my wife has used for over 20 years. Although we hadn't been in for ages the owner recognised and greeted us....they did at least have other customers in. The lady who served us was very cheery and without being pushy encouraged us to try on as many jeans as we wanted.
I was given two pairs after telling her no way did I want drainpipes, The first pair were awful...hipster style with very little crotch room and were swiftly discarded. The second pair with the UFO label were grudgingly tried on but much to my surprise, apart from the length, fitted perfectly. Not too tight not too loose and very comfortable material. When I heard they only cost 1400 pesos the deal was done. My wife ended up also buying a couple of pairs due to the quality fit and price. We paid but left them in the shop for the length to be taken up which only costs 85 pesos a pair.
All in all I left very happy despite entering a tad on the grumpy side. So we ended up getting three pairs of jeans for the price of one at Cardon.
