After seeing the movie The Book of Eli once again had me thinking about what jeans I would wear in the post-apocalypse world. 

For a start, they need to be durable with no zips or clips that would not be replaceable- buttons only. Stitches need to hold- triple or quadruple would be good. Maybe a secret pocket (for lip balm- a scarce commodity in Eli, or for antibiotics. 
Pocket for a knife. Heel guards. Extra pockets. Heavyweight denim. Button fly.

So, I made them to those specs. My new favorite jeans. The Jeans of Eli.

The apocalypse may not be tomorrow- but at least I will be prepared. And wearing my own brand. 

(My own pattern too) What would you wear?
