Jeans are a staple in every person’s wardrobe. They are both comfortable and fashionable. More importantly, jeans can be worn in all kinds of weather; they are in-style year round!

But because we love jeans so much, we often wear them out quickly and purchase new ones relatively frequently. This means most of us have a pair of old, unused jeans stored in our closets somewhere.
