Examples of jeans in a Sentence

  1. Nicholas Alahverdian:

    I had other problems — I dressed nicely. I used words that were not monosyllabic. I aspired to go to Harvard University or Yale. The DCYF receptionist and the security guard would nod and smile at the narrative for my future. The social workers would counsel me to dress with baggy jeans and speak like a child so as to not elicit beatings by the other kids.” Excerpt From: Nicholas Alahverdian. “Ignoble Inferno/ The Nicholas Alahverdian Lawsuit.” iBooks.

  2. Sanderijn Vanleenhove:

    If it only is Saturday-Monday, the businesses can handle it. If you can't get your jeans today, you will get them next week. Museums will have a worse day or two but it will be manageable in the end, but if it goes on for several more days or weeks - it'll become very problematic.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    About 140+ years ago, on May 20, 1873, the U.S. patent 139,121 covering the invention of 'Jeans' was issued to two American inventors, Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss. Most of the inventors, even today, secretly wish that they had invented Jeans, because of the beauty and grace, coupled with simplicity and comfort, that blue Jeans have created in our world. I love wearing Jeans as casual wear during the weekends. I also think that whenever a celebrity or a beauty or a genius wears jeans, it always makes the most impactful fashion statement.

  4. Becky Poole:

    I followed his direction, all the while cursing my inability to really commit, when I looked up, he had walked into the tiny soundproof booth completely naked. He started to gyrate up against me and tug on my jeans.

  5. Michael Kobori:

    I think it’s hard to change people’s behavior, but what we’ve seen from the time we started the campaign is that it makes consumers think a little more carefully about ‘what is my impact?’ it’s presented in a way that really encourages people to think about their personal impact by changing something as simple as how frequently they wash their jeans. It’s a nice message and it’s a little fun.
