Oh dear God. I mean, I’ve got to give them credit for a very practical solution to a very irritating problem, but I just don’t think I can be that person.
The Trip Clip is a very simple device which will protect your jeans from deteriorating to the point where the hems become little more than aprons for you shoes, as happens to me frequently. They seem quite discreet – the one pictured is transparent – but I think its just much cooler not to care. I think I’ll just have to continue fraying my jeans with my heel and avoiding escalators. Still, if you’re more of a man (or granny) than me, you can get hold of yours for a fiver, here.
