Tired of your old pair of jeans? Thinking of throwing away all your old straight cut denims in favor of skinny jeans? Or felt like your old pants are no longer of good use?

Recession in the economy can be a hinder in buying new clothes and it even makes some fashion savvy guys drive away from updating their fashion pieces. But who says that recession should make any Juan Dela Cruz stick back to their old 90’s high cut blue jeans and baggy white t-shirt?

We’ve read it in PGG that fashion need not to be expensive. It is how you put things together and how you carry it with machismo confidence. So how about taking out your old, outdated pair of jeans in the closet and bring it back to life with style?

I tried experimenting some of my old pair of straight cut denims, and tried folding it up until the knees (or below the knees, it depends on you) making it look like a new pair of Capri denims paired with rubber shoes, sneakers, or ordinary flip-flops. I find this idea brilliant and cost-saving by making an old pair of jeans useful again in one way or the other. I mean, if we do fold our shirt’s or polo shirt’s sleeves an inch or so to showcase our biceps and to feel fitter, then why not do the same with your bottoms?

So how about you? Has the recent recession affected the way you spend your money for style and fashion? What other possible ways can you think of to help us in maximizing our old clothes?

Hello. I’m thin and I want to know if this will fit me?

pwede na rin. same reason nauso yung may zipper to allow the pants to transform into capri.

yah why not? in abroad uso narin ang pag fold ng pants. pero siempre depende sa nagdadala. wori kolang for short men, di ba magmumukha silang mas maliit.?

That’s certainly interesting. How does it translate to the real world though?

Tim is crouching in the picture, and he looks pretty cool. Does the same look work standing up? Or will I have to crouch all day to look cool?

honestly, i think it looks cheap. it would be better kung papa-alter into shorts na lang (like slate shorts) more tasteful..

Ok. old straight cut jeans folding it up to be stylish, maganda rin ito patungan ng mga nauusong shirt ngayon, yung parang semi-formal, tapos white sneakers or black will do. go for a stylish necktie too, i got one from SOLO, maganda tong ganitong porma.. you’ll appear younger in this kind of style. dapat maganda lang talaga bagsak ng jeans mo nito para di masagwa tignan. hehe astig to..
