You know your favorite pair of jeans, the ones that fit like a glove and go with everything… the ones you paid a fortune for? I had a pair of those, a gorgeous pair of dark wash Sevens with the famous back pocket numeral logos tastefully set in jet black rhinestones, (yeah… $200). So, I wore them to work, I wore them to the bar, I wore them to the movies, and before I knew it, I wore them out. Slowly I watched the bottoms of my jeans deteriorate from small scuffs, to huge rips, and most unattractively, the unfortunate discoloration of brown dirt stains. I would try to roll them up, but sooner or later, the cuffs would fall down and denim fabric would find itself caught underneath the soles of my shoes.
Although it is too late for my favorite Sevens, (now referred to as my “crappy” jeans), there is still hope for the rest of you thanks to the innovative Zakkerz. These little black strips have extremely strong magnets, one for the inside and the other for the outside of your pants, and will hold your cuffs in place and off the ground while you’re on the go. They might not be the most fashionable things in the world, but they will keep your expensive slacks and jeans from an early trip to the trash and will save you from having to buy new pairs more often. A set of four, two for each leg, goes for $24.
