My wife just took a sack with 4 pairs of my pants, and one pair of my denim cargo shorts, to the car. They all have 38″ waist lines, and I’m now comfortably wearing 36″ jeans again. The old jeans are heading to a second-hand store to see if they can help someone else. I’m officially stating that I won’t be trying to fit back into them ever again! LOL!
