    Since getting into denim 5 years ago I've lost some weight and my jeans don't fit well anymore. What should I do with these? Thanks.

    Put them on eBay starting at .99... Someone will buy them.

    I bet the Sams will go $100+. The others might too, but not sure.

    Is ebay the way to go or do you recommend another market?

    Do you know anyone who knows how to sew? if so, have them cut them up and make a nice denim tote. Just find some heavy canvas webbing for handles. RRL gets $300+ for theirs. Your own "brand" makes a good story too.

    The fades are desirable, the crotch blowout and holes not so much.

    You can probably get them tailored to fit you again. Take in the waist, seat, and taper the leg.

    But it's also possible that you could find a buyer who is looking for jeans with real fades. Just need to market them right.

    Might the original manufacturers want them or maybe the store you bought them from - possibly for display purposes?

    what size are they? repairs are easy, and the fades look good.

    Don't tailor them, they will never look right.

    Don't make a patchwork anything out of them, that is stupid.

    If you are a 100% Superfuture sort of nippo-denim cunt then you should frame the best one and sell the other two.

    Again, I think the Sams will go $100 on ebay. I might be wrong but there is no way they go for less than $40.

    I think the Nudies and Whalls can also go for $50+, but whalls are more problematic because few people are looking for them.

    So on ebay: possibly as high as $200 for them all, possibly as low as $100. Still, you would prefer to make a cunty patchwork tote out of them (by spending additional $$$) rather than getting $100?

    Definitely put them on eBay. They might surprise you.
