Ones like this always remind me of an Irish mate of mine, I'll call him Kevin. He bought a "Gucchi" pair of jeans from the PX in West Berlin, took them back to the block, cut a piece off the leg to make them fit and sewed it up, tried it on for size and it was perfect. He then took them off cut the other leg sewed it up and when he put them on he'd done it twice to the same leg. I literally fell off my bunk laughing, along with the other five of us in attendance. This was about 1980-ish when you couldn't get decent jeans in the UK. Still amuses me.
