in response to mister g8s insightful post on jeans
dress math - is a carefully developed justification for purchasing dresses (which i always love to have and anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that i hardly ever wear. though i would like to add in my defense that not wearing them often makes it seem extra special when i do). the rule is based on spacial math, as we all should know, one can cut the distance between two objects in half infinitely, a dress too can become infinitely cheaper. after one wear a $500 dress is a $500 dress, but when applying dress math after two wears that same dress is now a $250 per wear, after three it's $166.66, after four it's $125, and so on until eventually the dress cost per wear becomes nominal. if you buy a dress that's well made and classically designed, this could go on for years.
applying dress math to jeans is like money in the bank. i have half a dozen pairs of jeans and they all now probably cost less than a dollar per wear.
dress math makes a lot of things once considered luxury items only to be had by the ridiculous and spoiled (or crazy) perfectly gettable.
