Before you even drop some hard-earned guap on a new pair, determine if your well-worn jeans can actually be repaired. You'll keep some scrilla and save you time (break-in's a bitch). There a number of places willing and, more importanty, able to take care of your jean jawns. Find a place that can keep an eye on color matching and small stiching details, and you won't have to get rid of your favorite pair of jeans.
