I'm Glad I Learned How To Sew

Newish Eddie Bauer jeans, bought in April, worn around mainly in Venezuela, washed no more than ten-eleven times, belt loop broke away. The pockets are fraying. These are the first jeans I've bought in over a decade, I'm usually dress casual for daily wear. Were jeans a lot stronger twenty years ago or am I wearing Nostalgia Goggles?

I ended up using some stiff quilting edging, sewed an inside patch and attached the loop to the patch.

Clothes are definitely being made now to only last a season or two, definitely not the jeans of my youth that would last for years and years.
Of course the jeans of my youth did not have to hold in nearly as many sins either!

Regular old Levis have always held up well for me. Though, I usually own only a couple of pairs of jeans at a time.
