maybe they're made for sitting?

I wish that were true... when I sit, the jeans are uncomfortable as well - I think I just need to move on and get another pair ... I bought the tagged size, but maybe I just need to size up

Digging up an old thread here, although l'm not sure why, maybe to help me move on from constantly thinking about my regret; a soul cleansing exercise if you will.

Almost a year ago it happened: l was watching a beautiful pair of 1930's Lee Unionalls (coveralls) on ebay. Denim model, Housemark tag, my size (44 reg), white triple stitching and a deco fan-back. Amazing patina and great condition with no holes or stains.
Thought they'd go for big money, so l was prepared to put down maybe £200 tops.
Then l somehow missed the f*cking auction end, and when l looked at the final price - 96 quid ffs!!

And breathe ....

I actually feel better for writing this down now.

I also made myself feel (slightly) better by recently acquiring a pair of early 70's nos wrangler coveralls which may, or may not, further take the edge off.

Exorcism over.

If it makes you feel better I think that the auction might have “ended” at that price if the seller withdrew them from sale

Possibly, as the only pairs l've seen (on Japanese vintage sites) go for well over 2k now. Anyway, it's all water under the bridge.
I dont have many regrets but when l do, it helps to talk about it

I had something similar happen about 5 years ago. It was this vintage type 1 Levi's jacket that was super dark and had little wear. The only issue with it was that someone had painted a cow & flowers along the yoke. I had plans of buying it and trying to remove the paint. I believe the seller had listed it for around $450, and I was trying to get him to go down to $400 on it. The seller told me he'd think about it, and I hesitated, so of course it was gone the next morning when I went to check on it.

No pain, no gain. Or rather, No gain is pain?
Anyways my Wrangler coveralls are drying as we speak :)
