Don't know if you have a RK store in your area, but they have their Black Friday sale already going on. I went by an RK store in a bordering county today to pick up some Timothy Seed($60 for a 50# bag of Climax). 

 

I noticed near the front entrance they had tables stacked high with 5 pocket jeans. They were $7.99 and come with a LIFETIME warranty. The sign said if they split out or get a hole in them just bring them back for a new pair. They were all relaxed fit and they have odd waist sizes like 35" waist....which is what I wear and is hard to find without ordering. They are a pretty remarkable jean for $8.

 

Just thought I would pass it on.

 

Regards, Mike

I would too, except 35" might be a little too tight.  :cool:

Yeah, I haven’t worn 35” jeans since early early junior high.... Used to wear 38 forever but lately these Jean companies have been making their 38s too small, moved up to a 40 and its a little more comfortable.

Check the hot water heater stack, you may need to turn the thermostat down.

I contribute it to the changed measuring system. ;)   I'm old enough to remember buying seed corn that had 56# in it, then they went to 50# bags (without lowering the price even), then to just so many kernels per bag.   Doesn't matter if the bag only weighs 42# or not. 

 

I'm glad i don't grow corn anymore, I'd hate counting to almost 80,000 and get interrupted, loosing track of where i was at and having to start over. :o   What nobody checks and trusts the seed companies?

That is what I usually buy and cinch my belt up snug. I like the 35" as I don't have to wear a belt with them when operating machinery making it more comfortable.

I don't understand how anyone can offer a lifetime warranty on jeans. Every pair I've ever owned will eventually get a hole in them. With a warranty like that, I'd be set for life!

That's my wife's brother, still wearing size 32" pants (according to him).  BTW, he prefers that you call him either Mark or "God's gift to women". :lol:

 

I remember him telling MIL, to buy him the ones with 'stretchy' waist bands, because the seem to fit better. :o

 

I wonder what he's doing in Georgia anyhow. ;)

Not only is that funny, wife says you can keep him. too.  Hopefully, he locates with the rest of liberals on the dole (he didn't work for 18 out of 20 years he was married, want to guess why his ex divorced him?).

PS BTW,  he's one of the Governor's folks, who thinks she walks on water. :o

Holy crap.....32? I might have some of my old Sears Toughskins from back in the 7th grade :o you never suffered “move away from table” syndrome did you. My dad would have to tell us to back off.....”wait 30 min and see if your still hungry, if you are, grab a glass of milk” (usually powdered :o, mom would buy a gallon of “real” milk a week, when it was done....) I think it ingrained an attitude of “eat it now, there may not be any left later” :o and the fact that there was 7 of us, and I was the youngest...

Those are the same pants mommy used to buy for me only ones I outgrew before I destroyed. I wore 32x34 in 7th grade then 34x34 in 8th still wear 34x34 at 43 years old though I have swapped to carhartt dungree's but they are no comparison to those toughskins.

I grew up the youngest of 4 boys, youngest older brother is 7 years older. Between them and my Dad, it was “eats the fastest gets the mostest” Leftovers was not a common occurrence either. Mom would buy 5 gallons of milk a week, after it was gone, drink water.

I guess I was 'lucky' as far as milk, we hauled 1 1-2 to 2 gals up morning and the same at night right from the bulk tank after milking cows.   Now as far as leftover or seconds, hmmmm Mom, Dad, Grandpa, hired man and 6 kids............ better clean your plate was the rule.  ;)  Had to 'leave some' for everyone else. IF (big word) there was some left you could have them, but I think my mom (last one in the passing lane), probably didn't always get a belly full (now that I look back at those days).
