So if my jeans are 25 years old they're worth $20,000 Did I get the math right?

Some years ago a geologist friend found an old pair of Levis hanging on a nail inside a long caved mine they had just opened. This was in Arizona and the dry climate had preserved them perfectly. He donated them to a historical society that dated them from the 1890's. It never occurred to him to sell them. He just joked that "somebody lost their pants in that mine."

I have two pair of denim overalls worn my great, great grandfather over a hundred years ago..... I'm rich! I'm rich! I'm rich!


Yes, but will the Levis clash with the

Summer of Suit Shorts?

I have underwear tthat old. TMI right?

Denim is like a fine cabernet. Who knew ?
