Jean Shorts Epidemic

Due to the fact that it is disgustingly hot and on the heels of the fourth of July, an epidemic of jean shorts has broken out. Now I realize there are some very cute jeans shorts women are sporting but that is not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the kind of jean shorts my dad used to wear with his thick white socks rolled out of his sandals before my mother put that to a swift end. Personally I think they are just “meh” but walking around with one of my guy friends this weekend he quickly noticed and announced that “men who wear jean shorts are freaks. period.”. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Whitney Port Loves Her Some Jeggings

Whitney Port is the bravest girl we know. She is the first person we’ve seen try the jean-legging combo. While she’s thin enough that they don’t look bad, we wonder if they’re cutting off her circulation. [LA, 5/19/09] Keep reading »

Where Are All The Acid Wash Jeans?

The Frisky staff was talking about what ’80s fashion trends we wish would make comebacks, since most styles from back in the day have returned. Jean jackets covered in sequins and pins, catsuits, and lamé all came up in the conversation. I said acid wash denim, and everyone jumped all over me. For most people, acid wash jeans seem like a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea. What do I think is a horrible idea? Wearing acid wash jeans with an American Apparel T-shirt and tough-girl boots. Instead, I’m looking for a pair to wear with preppy striped shirts and button-downs. Sadly, not many companies are making them. Am I the only one who thinks they’d be a good idea? [Bleach Acid Skinny Jeans, $80, Topshop] Keep reading »

Classic Levi’s Sell For $36,099 On eBay

A pair of old-school Levi’s from the 1890s was found in an abandoned mine in California’s Mojave Desert. The company historian for Levi Strauss & Co. thinks they’re the 201 style, a “value” (read: cheaper) version of their 501s. The jeans sold on eBay for $36,099 last week, which is three times as much as the most expensive pair of jeans we’ve heard of, which are covered with Swarovski crystals. Let this be a lesson: Classic always trumps trendy. [WWD] Keep reading »

Sex And The City: The Reason Women Wear Dresses

Bobbie Thomas spoke on Today about getting the fashions in the movie. Are we sick of this movie yet? Well, I’m not so much sick of the movie as I’m sick of it getting credit for every trend that’s come along in the last decade. While discussing the movie’s fashions, Bobbie says, “Before Sex and the City came along, we were a denim culture, and women everywhere said ‘bye, bye’ to blue jeans and ‘hello’ to the dress. It came back. And there’s a dress for everyone, whether it’s sweet like Charlotte, sexy like Samantha, or even Miranda with the lawyer look.” I’m pretty sure women still wear blue jeans (this woman does), and that they also wore dresses before SATC (this woman did).

Levi Strauss, Thanks For Everything!

You might be wondering why we think an old guy with soup-catching facial hair is hot. Well, this isn’t any just any old guy, it’s Levi Strauss. On this day in 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis patented the process of riveting pants, and blue jeans came into our lives. If those two guys hadn’t done their thing, I would be pantless right now.

Freedom Of Choice: Jeans That Have Nothing To Do With Roe V. Wade

We just got a press release in the mail for a new line of denim called “Freedom Of Choice”, which we initially thought was named after the right afforded by Roe V. Wade. Not so! According to the designer, Nathan Menashe (of course, a man), Freedom of Choice jeans are for women who “need a pair of jeans that they can wear in the workplace and then go out in afterwards. They need all this plus that special detail that will make their jeans stand out from the rest of the pack.” Get it? Women need the freedom to choose jeans that they can wear in a board meeting AND when they’re out getting smashed with their friends. Take that, Roe V. Wade! Keep reading »
