1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Charity shop. If they don't think they can sell them in store they will sell them to a rag man, so they are recycled at least.

    My wife has cut up several pairs of my old jeans and remade then into pairs for my little son. She's done this with other clothes too.

    this - i wouldn't just throw them away, materials can be recycled and we can do our part to make the environment a little bit better, no matter how minimal.
    There's always goodwill and stuff too.

    a quick ebay search shows that few pairs of APCs go for over 100 though.

    My old denim jeans just go for recycling, like any other worn-out, unwanted or discarded clothes.

    Don't know what the neighbours would make of this though.

    it would be so awesome if i had a jeans museum, then i would take all those boxes of jeans and burn each pair of jeans in the fireplace in the winter for heat.
