  • I was going to say the same thing. If they wear out you can return them for the same size

  • my son did the same thing, its just a phase, i bought all of his jeans from a resale shop, so it wasnt so bad when he ripped the knees out. i found out that he was sliding on his knees because he thought it was cool!

  • We buy jeans at Goodwill. $5 a pair. My 9yo son wears the knees out so fast it's pointless to buy full price jeans.
    He's not the only kid in the neighborhood either. Most of the boys have holes in their knees. And quite a few of the girls. They all go to school like that. I don't have the money to replace every pair ever month. Come summer we're cutting them all off for shorts.
