“If you wear jeans just say you wear them because you like them, don’t give an explanation. They are not appropriate attire for religious people as they are a garb of non Jews but hey if you want to wear them go ahead just don’t go on the defense.”
Jeans are comfortable, and they take a lot of abuse. They’re great to wear casually.
As far as appropriateness, well, there are jeans and then there are jeans. Regular Levis. if you don’t wanna wear them, OK! If you do, also OK! But, once you start sifting through the fad brands and styles, ripped, logos, etc, then I’d be hard pressed to say those are NO PROB and also be intellectually honest. Plus I think regular ol’ Levis look way better. Full disclosure – I do wear jeans, weekends and Fridays.
