I've done that with jeans when I worked outside a lot, but like you I never wore them out and about after that. Someone needs to come up with some reinforced thigh pants... (And while they're at it, add on some decent pockets :P )
I've blown out belt loops too, using them to pull my jeans over my hips. Those are a little easier to fix, thank goodness.

Oh, I never thought of that. I do have a pair of spanx-type shorts, and a whole bunch of hose tucked away in my closet somewhere. Maybe I'll try one of those on my next easy day and see how it feels. Can't hurt...
