Do we reckon knees can get frostbite? Is that something that is humanly or physically possible? If so, can it be a look that I rock or will these jeans henceforth require three primary layers of thermal and wool before facing the elements?

Since I found out that I will be relocating in January from the Caribbean climes to the windy shores of Lake Michigan I have been worried that these jeans – formerly known as the Fergie jeans, in reference to her seminal ‘Clumsy’ song (before her London Bridge faux-pas) – are going to desperately require me working on my patching or needlework skills.

Alternatively, I need to invest in some jazzy salopettes, after all living in the snow my life will certainly become one Après-ski party after another. Right?
