After seeing the movie The Book of Eli once again had me thinking about what jeans I would wear in the post-apocalypse world.
For a start, they would need to be durable with no zips or clips that would not be replaceable-buttons only. Stitches need to hold- triple or quadruple would be good. Maybe a secret pocket (for lip balm- a scarce commodity in Eli, or for antibiotics.
Pocket for a knife. Heel guards. Extra pockets. Heavyweight denim. Button fly.
So I made them. (My own pattern).
(Oh, I’d wear my peachoo+ krejberg coat too-has that post apocalypse look)
