Buying Jeans

leviamazonI’m not a big fan of shopping for clothes. Usually I hold out as long as possible and then let Tyla drag me to a store where I try to get it all over with as quickly as possible. Part of the problem is that I’m about equal height to your average ogre.

For example, here’s how I buy jeans: Walk into the store and immediately start going through all of the piles looking to see if anything is my size. After I’ve found the three pairs in the entire store that could fit me, I try them on and hopefully buy one or two.

But now I’ve discovered how to get out of shopping trips AND find jeans that fit better: AMAZON! It seems so obvious I wonder why I’ve never thought of it before. I looked through my pile of jeans and figured out which styles of Levis I generally buy and found the corresponding product page on Amazon. From there I chose my size and then chose from about a dozen different colors. A couple days later, they showed up at my door. Brililant.
