I got my replacement Dockers in record time and managed to crack up a few friends with my split pants story. I ordered the exact same pants I've been wearing for over a year now. I usually get them from Kohls. I ordered the same size, same color, same style from Docker's website. They are very different though. The legs are about 4 inches wider at the ankle than my remaining pair and the rise is shorter. They are closer to hip height than width.
Is it possible that months of wearing and washing has shrunk the ankles, lengthened the ass and stayed the same everywhere else?
So please excuse my plumber's crack and bell-bottoms if you see me in work clothes. By the time I get them broken in they'll be ready to spontaneously split and show you more than you ever wanted to.
