It’s in your jeans
Maybe that tear below the pocket brings to mind a hasty retreat through a barbed-wire fence, or the stain on the knee recalls pulled pork at a juke joint outside Memphis, Tenn.
Maybe they’re a pristine blue, hinting at unfaded memories of a firework sunset, an open road, a perfect day.

Tell us about your favorite pair of jeans — that may or may not still fit, that spill memory and life every time you unfold them.
